TERMS AND CONDITIONS
These are the general terms & conditions (“Terms & Conditions”) that apply to orders placed and purchases made online from Oak Furniture Land Inc. (‘OAK FURNITURE LAND,’ ‘WE,’ ‘US’ or ‘OUR’).
1. Product Specifications
(a) We and our suppliers have a policy of continuous product development. We reserve the right to amend the specifications of any goods or products without prior notice in relation to future sales or shipments. This includes adjustments to sizes, measurements or ornamental detailing on individual items ordered or purchased but not yet shipped. Please email or call at least 48 hours after ordering but prior to shipping to check exact sizes or potential ornamental changes as on occasions minor adjustments may have been made by us or our supplier. We hereby disclaim any and all liability for any extra costs incurred by you as a result of incorrect or incomplete measurements or information supplied by you or alterations made by us or our supplier.
(b) Products supplied may differ from those on display or advertised. However, the products supplied will be of generally equivalent value, functionality and appearance.
(c) All our furniture is made from natural wood and accordingly appearances may vary. Some woods will mellow with age and exposure to sunlight. When you purchase our furniture you are buying pieces where varying degrees of distressing is generally applied. This is very much intended and makes each piece totally individual as designed by the manufacturers. We sell only genuine rustic designs with varying degrees of distressing from piece to piece, which may involve wood splits, wood filling, knots, purposeful distress/scratch marks, antiquing, etc. Certain degrees of filler may be used on our furniture. This is common and part of the manufacturing process. Please note that our mango items are usually of a very rustic nature and a heavy distressing is usually applied. This may appear as a dulling or rubbing effect to the waxed finish. Knotty and grainy woods are used, and this is as intended by our supplier.
(d) Leather products are made from quality natural leather and accordingly they may not be uniform in color or texture and may exhibit traces of natural markings such as scars and bites.
(e) Every effort is made to display as accurately as possible the colors of our products that appear in our stores, on our website and in other promotional materials. We cannot guarantee however the complete accuracy of the pictures or photographs that are shown. Many conditions such as your monitor or screen settings and batching can affect the coloring of items in a picture.
(f) From time to time, we may have a section of our website marked as “clearance” or “discontinued” range. When you purchase items from a clearance/discontinued range, please note that this stock may not be new or boxed. The items are from a discontinued range and as such are being sold as unused seconds. These items have been previously handled and so they may have knocks, scratches or other defects due to being over handled. The sale price takes this into consideration. Thus, notwithstanding anything to the contrary herein, these products are sold in ‘As Is’ condition, all purchases are final and they may not be returned.
(g) Most of our products do not require any home assembly. However, on occasion, to aid in delivery or to avoid damage, our designers have deemed it best that certain items will need a small amount of home assembly. This includes all dining tables and beds and some armoires, tables and sofa products. Any handles (e.g., for drawers and armoire doors) may be on the inside of the drawers and doors. Items needing home assembly will be identified in the individual item description. Our designers have made efforts to ensure that any assembly is straightforward and that it will not detract from the quality or structural integrity of the product. We will not unbox (unless you have previously agreed this with our customer services team ahead of your items being dispatched) any of your items or assemble any of your furniture. Please note that we cannot facilitate the removal of any of your packaging.
(h) Our solid hardwood furniture will require treating with wax immediately upon receipt. Ensure that you wax the whole item, not just the top, and repeat every six months with natural wax polish. Please treat your furniture immediately on delivery as your item may have been in shipping for some time and modern home heating/cooling will accelerate the drying process. Failure to treat your wood furniture as instructed here, in any documentation provided with the product, or otherwise can result in problems that will not be covered by your warranty, as determined by us.
(i) Please be aware that you are purchasing natural timber products where slight timber movement in shipping is a possibility. On rare occasions, due to extreme climate changes in shipping, you may find slight swelling on doors or drawers, making them stiff to open. You should not return or refuse the item if this is the case, as usually this will rectify itself within a week once the timbers adjust to their new environment and heating/cooling conditions. You may also find that simply swapping the drawers will remedy this. However, on rare occasions, the timber movement may not settle and you may need to sand or shave a small amount from a drawer or door. If this is necessary, please sand or shave from the bottom of the drawer front or from the side of the door as this will not be noticeable and will not invalidate your warranty. A simple touch of furniture wax will then protect any adjustments made. Again, failure to treat your wood furniture as instructed herein or in any documentation provided with the product can result in problems that will not be covered by your warranty, as determined by us. Stiff drawers or doors will not be deemed a fault or defect in the product. This means you are purchasing our furniture on the understanding that any necessary simple adjustments may need to be undertaken by you at your expense. If you do not wish to undertake any adjustments needed and wish to return the item, we will offer a refund under our 7 day money back guarantee. In such an instance, the item must be returned in unused condition at your expense. Please see the Returns, Refunds and Your Right to Cancel section below for full details.
(j) Our furniture is crafted from natural hardwood timbers and accordingly there may be slight differences in size between products of the same description. All product dimensions specified by us are approximate.
(k) There may be differences in the spacing around doors and drawers; however, this will always be within our quality control limits.
(l) By purchasing our furniture, you agree to undertake any simple necessary adjustments yourself. Certain issues of the type described in this section will not be considered to be defects or faults.
We always try to be as accurate as possible; however, specified measurements are always approximate. No two products of ours will ever be identical. Please contact us within 48 hours of ordering if minor changes to dimensions are a problem.
(a) All listed prices exclude sales tax. Sales tax will be added at check out as necessary.
(b) The prices displayed on the website are for online purchases and promotions only and are not transferable to sales through any other means. Prices relating to any online promotion are valid strictly until midnight (Eastern Time) on the day on which the promotion expires, as determined by us.
(c) We will not be bound to honor any prices that have been displayed in error, whether typographical or otherwise. In cases where the error has not been noticed until after an order has been placed, we reserve the right to cancel the order, notify you in writing and, to the extent we have accepted payment from you, offer a full refund.
(a) You can pay at the time of order by credit, debit card and, in some instances, PayPal. Subject to Section 3, the price of any product is the price charged in your order. We will not be obligated to make any adjustments to such price for any reason, including matching such price to any discounted or reduced price for the same product that we may offer elsewhere, previously or in the future. You agree that all details you provide to us for the purpose of purchasing products which may be offered by us on our website will be correct, that the credit or debit card or PayPal account which you use is your own and that there are sufficient funds or credit available to cover the cost of all purchased products.

(d) We are entitled to refuse any order placed by you.

Please see the Returns, Refunds and Your Right to Cancel section below for a full description of costs.
(d) Any changes made to your order could impact the delivery date. We may be unable to deliver your goods on your confirmed delivery date, particularly if you make changes to your order. If we are unable to deliver your entire order on the same day, we will deliver your order in instalments. We will not charge you for this, unless instalment delivery is made at your request, in which case we reserve the right to add additional charges. Should you not be available at the time of delivery, you will be left a card with details on so that you can contact our carrier and arrange redelivery, and additional redelivery costs will apply. You must provide a safe means of access from the public highway to the place of delivery. If our carrier considers the access unsafe, we might not deliver the goods until safe access is provided or we may cancel your order and refund payment. Redelivery, cancellation or return fees will apply.
(e) If we accidentally damage goods in the course of delivery, our liability for that damage is limited to the repair, replacement or refund of the goods delivered or the value thereof. Our liability for any other damage we cause in connection with delivery of any goods is limited to the price paid for such delivery. We will not pay compensation beyond these limits. Time of delivery is not covered in these Terms & Conditions. We will not be liable for any loss or damage suffered by you through any reasonable delay due to unforeseen circumstances.
(f) In the unlikely event that there is an issue with your goods on arrival, please contact us at 1-844-304-6777 or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org and our customer service team will help to resolve the matter for you.

In exceptional circumstances, we may, in our sole discretion, accept reports of product issues up to 7 days after delivery. We will require a photograph of the damage in order to arrange a furniture specialist to resolve the issue.
(h) If you choose to have your goods delivered to your own third-party carrier, we will not accept responsibility or liability for any damage to your goods once they are out of our control. Any forwarding delivery is at your own risk. Your goods will generally be delivered via a large delivery truck, so you must ensure your property is accessible for this size of vehicle.
(i) For orders containing multiple items, the initial estimated delivery date you will be assigned will accord to the longest lead time. If multiple orders are placed for the same delivery address, we reserve the right to arrange for a single delivery and the estimated delivery date will be chosen according to the longest lead time.

(h) Return of items is subject to your financing agreement, if any. We remind you that the purchase of any items on credit financing terms is done through a separate agreement between you and a third-party finance company. We are not responsible for the terms between you and the finance company.

(i) Any custom-made or custom-altered items are non-returnable and non-refundable unless they are materially defective or have been damaged in the course of delivery. Any items purchased on an ‘As Is’ basis are non-returnable and non-refundable unless they have been damaged in the course of delivery. We will not be liable for any damage or loss resulting from repairs attempted by you or third parties.
(a) Full refund of the cost of the goods (where applicable) is wholly conditional upon the above conditions being met, and the refund may be authorized only after a full inspection of the returned goods by our returns department to check for completeness and correct product return. You will be refunded the full invoice amount, less cost of return shipping, handling and/or cancellation or restocking fees. Refunds will be paid via the same means by which you made payment.
(b) If you request that we pick up the item for return, then our return charges will apply and will be deducted from your refund. If you are unable, for whatever reason, to permit or allow pick-up of your goods on the confirmed date arranged, you must inform us at least 2 working days prior to the original agreed collection date so that another date can be booked. If, through no fault of our own, we cannot gain access to make the pick-up on the date agreed (or access is not safe or secure), return shipping, handling and/or cancellation or restocking fees will apply.

(d) We will not be liable for any damage or loss resulting from repairs attempted by you or third parties. Failure to care for your furniture in the recommended way will result in invalidation of your warranty.
(e) All items of furniture are purchased as individual items and as such we will only refund/or replace any items which are defective or damaged. You are not entitled to reject other items purchased together with the damaged or defective items. In the event that replacement items are not available, we will refund you the purchase price or offer a similar item from another range which we believe complements the other items you have purchased. Should you have a faulty product from a range no longer available, this will not entitle any other non-faulty items to be returned. Please note custom-made or ‘As Is’ items are non-returnable.
7. Guarantees and Claims Under Guarantees
