Terms & Conditions
Welcome to the Horgans website. Please take a moment to review our Terms and Conditions. Your purchase of products from Horgans constitutes an agreement to follow these Terms and Conditions and be bound by them.
VINTAGE AND HAND-CRAFTED PRODUCTS
Thank you for choosing a Horgans product. Many of our pieces are hand crafted and hand finished to provide a unique look. Given their nature, natural imperfections are to be expected and celebrated. Each piece may be different and vary over time with exposure to light and use. Horgans is not responsible for the condition of items that have been used inappropriately or in a commercial situation.
Horgans and its affiliates provide their services to you subject to the following conditions. If you visit or shop at Horgans, you accept these conditions. Please read them carefully. In addition, when you use any current or future Horgans service or visit or purchase from any business affiliated with Horgans, whether or not included in the Horgans Web site, you also will be subject to the guidelines and conditions applicable to such service or business.
A minimum order value of $400.00 (ex GST & freight) applies to general stock and a minimum order value of $200.00 (ex GST & freight) applies to Christmas stock. Orders must be received in writing via email, fax or through our website. No phone orders will be taken. No responsibility will be taken by Horgans for customer typing errors.
All prices are exclusive of the G.S.T. Prices quoted are deemed correct at time of publishing. However, errors and omissions, fluctuating currencies and other factors beyond our control can occur, so we reserve the right to make changes if and when necessary. Pricing may change without notification and Horgans have the right to withdraw an item from sale at their discretion.
DELIVERY OF GOODS
ALL GOODS ARE DELIVERED EX-WAREHOUSE. Horgans will arrange a freight company to deliver to the purchaser’s address, unless the purchaser states otherwise. Liability passes to the purchaser upon delivery of the goods to the designated address of the purchaser. Liability passes to the purchaser ex-warehouse, if purchaser organises freight ex-warehouse. Freight is payable on all dispatches. Freight costs are the responsibility of the purchaser, and are additional to the cost of goods sold. The purchaser must sign for the number of cartons received upon delivery. Horgans will not be held responsible for cartons signed for, but not received. If upon delivery cartons are damaged, we ask that you please mark the consignment note and notify Horgans immediately. Please note that bulky and fragile items require specialist carriers and may take longer to reach nominated destinations. Orders will only be sent directly to purchaser’s client at Horgans discretion.
PAYMENTS - All payment by Visa and Mastercard are surcharge Free.
Payment for approved 30 day account holders ONLY can be made by EFT, credit card (only VISA and Mastercard), cheque or cash.
For all other customers, BEFORE an order is entered in the system and stock reserved, a valid credit card (VISA or Mastercard only) must be given. Once goods are available for dispatch, the credit card provided at the time of order being placed, will be charged only for the goods available. After the items have been packed, the exact freight costs will be calculated and charged to the same card. Goods are then dispatched. If for any reason you need to pay by EFT, we will insist on a $20 ex GST admin fee.
Credits are only accepted if authorised by Horgans head office and only if Horgans are notified within seven (7) days of receipt of goods. Notification of a claim must be made in writing, by fax or email, to Horgans’ Sydney office (firstname.lastname@example.org). Failure to claim within this period constitutes full acceptance of the goods. The goods must be in the original packaging in which they were shipped when returning goods, after authorisation has been given. Horgans sales representatives and sales agents will not accept return of claimed goods unless authorization from Horgans head office is given. Horgans will not discount goods if the purchaser sells goods at a discount before authorisation is given by Horgans. To expedite claims, please include invoice number of purchase, a detailed description of reason for claim and include image/s of fault. If upon return to Horgans Sydney office it is evident the claim is invalid, a restocking fee may be applied.
OVERDUE ACCOUNTS AND PAYMENTS
Until an overdue account is brought up to date, Horgans reserve the right not to supply further goods to the purchaser. Horgans is entitled to take action to recover the balance owing of an invoice.
Delays up to four weeks or more may occur due to availability of incoming shipments from overseas. Goods, which are not supplied to the purchaser, will remain on back-order until the goods are available. Once items become available, Horgans will endeavour to despatch the items as soon as possible. Orders at the purchaser’s request and Horgans discretion may be delayed for a limited time. In this instance Horgans cannot guarantee stock availability.
CANCELLATIONS and RETURNS
Cancellation of orders or part of orders must be made in writing, via email or fax, and until done so, will remain an order. Cancelled orders that have already been reserved and/or packed will only be allowed at Horgans discretion. If accepted a minimum re-stocking fee of 30% applies. Dispatched orders can not be returned due to change of mind. Orders will be cancelled at the discretion of Horgans. Reasons for cancellations include, but are not limited, to breach of Terms & Condition’s, non-response by purchaser to Horgans communication and rejected/declined payments.
APPLICATION FOR CREDIT ACCOUNT
30 Day accounts are offered at the Horgans discretion. A standard Gift and Homewares Association “Credit Application Form” must be completed, in full, by all new customers or new owners of a current account, wishing to apply for credit with Horgans. All account payments are strictly 30 days from date of invoice. Horgans will only supply a limited credit amount to any client at Horgans discretion. No goods will be supplied to overdue accounts. If an account holder consistently pays outside the trading terms, Horgans has the right to cancel all agreements with the account holder and purchaser. No accounts are offered to purely online stores.
