The prices payable for the products that you order are clearly set out on the relevant part of the Compare the Coffin site. If in the unlikely event that we have mistakenly underpriced or overpriced an item, we will not be liable to supply that item to you at the stated price, provided that we notify you before we dispatch the item concerned. In those circumstances, we will notify you of the correct price so you can decide whether or not you wish to order the item at that price. If you decide not to order the item, we will give you a full refund on any amount already paid for that item in accordance with our refund policy in section 9 below.
All prices are expressed inclusive of VAT payable unless otherwise stated. The price of an item does not include the delivery charge, which will be displayed separately in the checkout area of the Compare the Coffin site.
We try to ensure that we always stock the full product range. If for any reason beyond our reasonable control we are unable to supply a particular item or we consider the item is not suitable for your needs, we will notify you as soon as possible. In such circumstances, we will offer you a suitable alternative. If this is not suitable to your needs we will ensure that you are not charged for that item.
Your payment will be confirmed at the time you place your order. After this time you can amend your order as long as the order has not already been dispatched (but please see our cancellation policy in section 7 below).
Your order is an offer to buy from us. Nothing that we do or say will amount to any acceptance of that offer until we actually dispatch an item to you, at which point a contract will be made between us. At any point up until then, we may decline to supply an item to you. If we decline to supply an item to you and you have already paid for it, we will give you a full refund of any amount already paid for that item in accordance with our refund policy in section 9 below. Where items are dispatched separately, our acceptance of the order in respect of each item takes place when that item is dispatched.
Please note we only deliver to addresses within the UK. If delivery is required outside the UK please contact us and we can make special arrangements.
Unless otherwise specified, your Coffin will be dispatched to the Funeral Director you have selected from the options provided. We will email the Funeral Director and you to let you know that your order has been dispatched.
Delivery of all other products will be made to the address provided by you when making an order.
Ownership of an item will pass to you when we dispatch the item. When an item has been dispatched, risk of damage to or loss of the item passes to you. Note: we cover items for damage during the delivery process. Please contact us as soon as possible in the unlikely event of any errors or damage to the products.
We will do our best to deliver your items within 24 hours (subject to availability). Whilst we make every effort to deliver your items within this time, in the unlikely event that we fail to provide this service, we shall not be liable if we fail to do so if due to circumstances beyond our control.
