Terms & Conditions for orders placed on this web site. Placing an order is your acceptance of these terms and that you agree to abide by them.

Making A Purchase at www.discountfabricslincs.uk

We spend a lot of time and effort listing our fabrics and pride ourselves on accurate photos… the colours on this web site will be affected by the settings of your monitor which is obviously beyond our control. We offer a swatch service for most of our fabrics and would strongly urge customers take advantage of this by making a request for a swatch via our contact us page.

It is very important that you order enough fabric for your project and that you have taken into account pattern repeats etc. It is very rare for us to beable to obtain more fabric once a particular design has sold out. All our fabric is available to purchase in our bricks and mortar shop so occasionaly fabrics that have sold out may for a short time be available online. We always try to update stock levels straight away but if a sale overlaps we will issue a full refund immediatly, we cannot be held responsible for any inconvenience this causes. Fabrics sold as roll ends or roll deals have a 10% leeway in length to accomodate any marks at the end of the roll or slight discrepancies in roll length, please make sure you allow for this. 

Payments can be made via bank transfer or paypal invoice which is our preferred method. This offers you buyer protection and us seller protection. Please ensure your address registered with paypal is up to date as this is the address we use to send out goods in accordance with paypals terms and conditions. Buyer and seller protection will not be provided if parcels are sent to an address that is not registered with paypal.

Delivery Time

On receipt of your order and payment we will pack your item(s) and book them in with our courier. Within 24 hours your order will be collected from us and will be delivered to you within 2 to 5 working days. We will provide tracking information on request. Large orders and whole roll deals are dealt with by Night Freight which is a next day overnight service. International orders will take longer and are dependent on the country of delivery and the couriers terms. All our parcels are fully insured at no extra cost. We understand it can be frustrating waiting in for a delivery, you have the option to nominate a trusted neighbour to sign for your delivery or you may elect to have your delivery sent to your place of work. A signature will be required on delivery, our couriers will not leave any items without a signature. Occasionally for reasons of weight, size etc an order cannot be delivered for the stated delivery price...this is very rare and is normally with overseas orders or BT postcodes. If this happens we will be in touch to see if you are prepared to pay the additional costs, if not we are happy to refund your money. We cannot be held responsible for delays in postage and any consequences this may have.

PLEASE NOTE ALL PARCELS ARE CHECKED AND PHOTOGRAPHED PRIOR TO DISPATCH TO VERIFY THE CONTENTS OF EACH PARCEL. 

Missing Delivery

If you require tracking information please contact us via our contact us link http://www.discountfabricslincs.co.uk/contactus.html or email us at [email protected] .

Returns

All fabric sold by us is classed as a bespoke item under the trade regulations and is exempt from The Consumer Protection (Distance Selling) Regulations 2000 and cannot be returned or exchanged. Any claim for faulty goods supplied, where the claim has not been made within 14 days of receipt, will be dealt with on the basis that the goods have been accepted by the purchaser, and therefore cannot be rejected. No items will be accepted for return after 14 days. Please also note that a refund will not be given if items have been cut, cleaned, or used contrary to any instructions on this website or the selvedge of the fabric. Returns should be sent to The Discount Shed, Highgate Farm, Carlton Road, south Reston, Louth, Lincs, LN11 8JN and marked for the attention of Miss Diane Hopkinson. Return postage costs must be paid for by the customer and will not be refunded. We will also charge a 25% handling fee which covers our restocking expenses and the costs involved of re rolling etc. When purchasing full rolls of fabric as whole roll deals it is to be expected that in the manufacturing process faults will occur. It is also acceptable to have joins in fabrics particularly larger rolls. This should not be considered a fault unless the faults/joins are excessive. A full roll of 50m’s may have up to 5 joins, this equates to 1 fault/join per 10 m’s of fabric. Though this is very rare customers need to accept these terms when ordering from www.discountfabricslincs.co.uk. Fabrics bought by the metre are checked prior to packing and will be free of all faults, if there is a join in the fabric we will always provide extra to accomodate this. If you require a continual length of more than 10 metres without a join please let us know and we will arrange this. Upholstery fabrics, especially ones with a bonded back often have 'marks' on the reverse side, this is not a fault and is quite normal and does not effect the face side of the fabric.

Shrinkage and colour fade

We would always recommend customers pre wash fabrics before cutting to allow for any normal shrinkage before making up. Repeated washing will lead to colour loss though this will be kept to a minimum if washed correctly.

Credit Card Security

All our online payments are processed via paypal. For more information about this secure method of payment please follow this link

Fire & Safety

Fabrics may only be used for upholstery if they have been treated in accordance with the Furniture & Furnishings (Fire) (Safety) Regulations 1988. Fabrics displayed on this site have not been treated unless otherwise stated.
