Terms & Conditions

Shade and Size Variations

Due to the nature of tiles, shade and size variations occur from batch to batch.
We will always endeavour to supply your orders from one batch to ensure consistency. You are advised to view the current batch available before purchase.
For subsequent orders, for example when quantities for a project have been underestimated, we will endeavour to supply you with the same batch again. However, this is not always possible, and you are advised to allow for 10% wastage when calculating quantities, in order to avoid shade and size variation problems. Surplus, full boxes of tiles can be returned in accordance with our Returns Policy.
Please check your tiles carefully prior to fixing for shade and size variation, which may include dry laying. If you are not happy with the shade of your tiles, we cannot accept responsibility once they have been fixed; fixing to a substrate means that you have accepted the tiles in their present state so no refunds or replacements will be available.

If you have any questions regarding shade and size variation, please ask a member of the team.

Returns Policy

We will offer a full refund if you return full, unopened boxes of tiles within 14 days from the date of purchase.
Between 14 days and 28 days, we will offer a credit note for the return of full, unopened boxes in our sole discretion. The tiles will need to be the same shade as our current stock.
No goods will be accepted for return unless they are presented together with the original invoice or receipt.
Where we have delivered the goods, we reserve the right to levy a 25% restocking charge upon return.
Any breakages, damages, or shortages must be notified within 24 hours of collection or delivery.
Under no circumstances, will we accept the return of adhesives or grouts.
Sale goods will not be accepted for return or credit.
Please see the section below in relation to the return of Special Orders.
The terms offered in this policy are in addition to any statutory rights you may have.

Special Orders

The vast majority of items that we sell are from our own stock, but some of our products are classed as Special Order which means that those products are custom made or specially ordered for individual customers. If you are placing a Special Order, we respectfully ask that you are confident of your measurements/requirements, as we are unable to accept the return of Special Orders. We cannot accept responsibility for incorrect measurements or over ordering. Upon receipt of your order you will need to check for any breakages, damages or shortages and report any problem to us within 24 hours of collection or delivery if we are to deal with the issue properly. We cannot accept responsibility for any breakages, damages or shortages if notified to us following this 24 hour period.

Delivery promises are given in good faith, but no responsibility will be accepted for delays howsoever they may be caused.
You must make all arrangements necessary to take delivery of products when we deliver them in accordance with the stated delivery times for the delivery charge you have paid. If you do not accept delivery of the products or if we are unable to deliver or are delayed in delivering products to you because of your actions or omissions then you may be liable to pay us for any costs we may incur. Do not book a tiler or any other tradesperson until you have received your products. BC Ceramics is not liable for any financial loss incurred by you
as a result of late or incorrect delivery.

Retention of Title
All goods supplied by us will remain the property of BC Ceramics until payment for them has been made in full.
