TERMS & CONDITIONS
Sale of Goods
These terms and the order constitute the whole agreement between you and us for the sale of the goods. Any amendments thereto must be confirmed in writing. Please ensure that you are happy with these terms before you submit the order, because you will be bound by the terms once a contract comes into existence between us.
Any photographs, samples, drawings, descriptions or advertising we issue, and any colours, images or illustrations, are offered solely to provide you with an approximate idea of the goods they describe. They do not form part of the contract between you and us for the sale of the goods.
If any of these terms are inconsistent with any term of or instruction in the order, the terms in the order shall prevail.
The order is an offer by you to enter into a binding contract which we may accept or decline at our absolute discretion.
These terms shall become binding on you and us when we issue you with an order confirmation, at which point a contract shall come into existence between us.
Most items purchased from Pastorale Antiques as seen on this site are antique and consequently age related marks and signs of wear and tear can be seen, due to the age of the item. Items are purchased as seen on the photographs and as described.
Prior to purchase if you have any questions or queries about the item(s) then please contact email@example.com. You should quote the item code on all correspondence to avoid any misunderstandings.
Whilst we make every endeavor to point out if there is any serious damage, defect, cracks, restoration, worm damage, etc. We cannot cover every eventuality so if you have any questions please contact us via e-mail before purchase.
Any other service will have to be quoted for prior to purchase. Please e-mail us if any other postal or carriage service is required. We offer national and international delivery services via courier companies.
Due to the nature of our products and the varying weights/sizes we are unable to include delivery costs within our product descriptions. All deliveries therefore need to be arranged via email/telephone so we can quote what the cost will be.
This means that all delivery costs are extra and would be charged as so. Deliveries within Lewes and Brighton are usually free.
For a quotation, or for more information please reach us on firstname.lastname@example.org
Any other item can always be collected from the centre by prior arrangement. No item can be posted to the purchaser or collected from the centre without the full payment being received by Pastorale Antiques.
Items are not sent with any insurance cover other than that provided by the Royal Mail or any other courier service under the terms of their standard insurnace service. The purchaser must arrange their own insurance above and beyond this.
If a purchased item does not substantially conform to the description or any e-mail answers, and the item is returned to the warehouse within 14 days of purchase, then Pastorale Antiques will gladly issue a refund of the purchase price, which will exclude any postal or carriage costs.
Antique or second hand electrical goods are not sold in working order unless clearly stated. They usually need checking and re-wiring according to current safety standards.
If you cancel your purchase before delivery a full item cost refund will be issued excluding a 15% administration fee.
Items on this site may also be available for sale at Pastorale Antiques. This could result in an item being sold by the centre prior to the listing being removed from this website. In this event the site reserves the right to cancel the sale and will issue a full refund of any money paid. An e-mail of explanation will be sent with the electronic refund.
Items including VAT will be marked as such.
Where vat is applicable on antique items, a Margin Scheme is used to calculate a reduced amount.
This VAT cannot be reclaimed by the buyer.
Some reproduction and new goods have 20% VAT included. This will be shown on the invoice, and may be reclaimed in the normal way.
Any extras, such as packing, carriage and insurance ,will be charged separately.
Periodically our prices may be reviewed, and subject to change.
