3 PRICING & OFFERS
The team at Tap ‘n Shower work hard to ensure that prices listed and technical specification information is accurate at the time of purchase. However, we are entitled to make amendments to the price to take into account any increase in our suppliers’ prices, the imposition of any taxes or duties, or if due to an error/omission the price published for the Goods is wrong whether or not the order has been confirmed. In this unlikely event, we cannot be held responsible for any inaccuracies at any time. Please note that your computer may display old pages from our website which are stored in your own computer's memory from previous visits - it is important you refresh your browser when viewing any pages on our web site to see the current prices and Goods available.
Any price changes will be advised and agreed prior to accepting your order.
Where Tap ‘n Shower run additional offers and voucher promotions, these may only be used singularly and not in conjunction with one another unless explicitly stated. This includes any cashback, discount code or trade account related discount. Please note that before accepting your order, if we discover you are not entitled to use a code, or do not meet any or all Terms and Conditions for a code use, we may reject your order or process without benefit or reduction. Please note, discount codes are specific to single products only and not when products are included in packages and/or suites. Any saved baskets, email or social offers may be subject to change when inside or outside of promotional periods.
Percentage saving calculations can be calculated using a manufacturer recommended retail price and the current available price for an item, or the previous sold as price. Please see additional pricing information of product prices after sale events end. This is normally referred to by countdown timers Tap ‘n Shower use for several different promotions, including discount code extra offers which may begin and end separately to discounted product reductions. Tap ‘n Shower reserve the right to withdraw an offer, whether voucher code or reduced price, at any time.
Please note that any reference to ‘Free Delivery’ is ‘Free Standard Delivery’.
4 DELIVERY & COLLECTION
All delivery options and charges can be found on our ‘Shipping and Returns’ page. Please note that delivery timetables are best estimates and may be subject to change due to weather conditions and other non-specified factors. All prices include VAT. For orders containing multiple items you will be charged one fee based on the collective weight of your order, unless you specifically request specialist delivery arrangements.
Our deliveries are usually handled by our chosen couriers or on larger orders, one of our pallet courier partners.
Once collected from our dispatch warehouse all orders are the responsibility of those drivers and staff. We are unfortunately, unable to give any special delivery instructions to drivers e.g. leaving products with neighbours or in sheds. Nor are we responsible for any delays the couriers or delivery companies experience. In instances where Goods go missing, we must allow 30 days for us to be able to successfully claim from the carrier.
When your order arrives at your address, you will be given the opportunity to check and sign for the products.
During delivery, we recommend a visual inspection of your order for any obvious damages and to ensure that all products ordered are present. You are not expected to check every item before signing for the delivery.
Once you receive your order, please do not store them away for later inspection, as if any Goods received are damaged, faulty or incomplete, you must notify us within 48 hours of delivery via email or telephone, quoting your order number for reference. Please open each box and check thoroughly for damages. If we are notified within the given time frame we will then organise a replacement and collection. In any situations in which customers have adhered to Terms and Conditions yet have received Goods that are incorrectly supplied or damaged in transit, Tap`n Shower will replace Goods free of charge. Please note that in some cases, a courier will refuse to collect and we will be unable to organise a collection, for example in the case of broken glass or pottery. Upon signing, responsibility for these products passes on to you, and any risk of damage or loss is assumed by the purchaser. We are not responsible for any Goods received or unpacked by anyone other than the purchaser, so please ensure that person is present to check and sign for the Goods at the supplied delivery address.
Please do not fit any damaged Goods, as we will be unable to replace or refund damaged items which have been installed. If you find your Goods are damaged, please get in touch with us and we'll do our best to help.
All damaged Goods, wherever possible, must be returned in their original packaging. For International buyers, we cannot be responsible for any postage cost if the item is found to be faulty or damaged. In instances of International orders, product guarantees which depend on British Manufacturing Standards or assume the end user has a British Standard water system are no longer applicable.
Please be aware that we cannot be held responsible for any loss or damage incurred due to errors made by the purchaser during checkout, for example entering incorrect address details, so please ensure all information is correct before processing your order. If you fail to take delivery on the date agreed, then we reserve the right to charge for any subsequent deliveries. We advise against booking any installers, or engaging in preparatory work until full receipt and inspection of your Goods, and will not be liable for any tradesperson costs, consequential loss or compensation in any way. Delivery timescales are given as estimates in good faith but cannot be taken as precise or exact information.
We will not be liable for any plumbers’ costs, consequential loss or compensation in any way.
Our ‘Out of Stock’ items are listed with an estimated timescale. These are dates estimated by our suppliers and are subject to change. We will confirm when an item is back in stock via either telephone or email and then action can be made for your chosen delivery method.
If Goods are ordered over the weekend or bank holiday, please be aware that the order date is taken as the next available working day for delivery purposes.
When Goods are collected from the Tap ‘n Shower dispatch warehouse they become the responsibility of the designated courier. We cannot be held responsible for any delays that the courier experiences.
For standard pallet deliveries, the responsibility of disposing of delivery packaging materials, such as pallets lies with the customer, though we do have additional delivery upgrades where pallets can be disposed of as part of the delivery services.
