13. Returns Policy

All of our Blinds are made to measure, including Skylights, and are manufactured especially for you and therefore you shall have no right to amend or cancel your order, return the goods or seek any refund of the price paid by you from us. This is because when we receive your order, the manufacturing process begins immediately, and the goods are manufactured to your exact specification. Vale Blinds offer a free sample service and we recommend customers use this before ordering to ensure the correct fabric/colour is chosen.

Made to measure products are custom made to your requirements/choice and under the distance selling regulations, we cannot accept any made to measure products back. Once made our products are suitable only to you and therefore cannot be cancelled or returned. Because of this, it is extremely important that you are sure about the product that you want and also the size you require. We strongly recommend that you double-check your order to ensure the products ordered and window codes/measurements are correct. This does not affect your statutory rights.

If you have received a faulty or damaged product, please contact us within 24hrs of receipt, please include your order number and photographic evidence of the fault/damage, this will enable us to deal quickly and efficiently with the problem.

If Vale Blinds have made an error with your order, Vale Blinds will bear all costs for collecting and supplying you with the correct products.

Our determination of any diminished value of the goods

In order to establish the nature, characteristics and functioning of the goods you shall handle and inspect the goods (i) with due care and (ii) in the same manner as you would typically be allowed to do in a shop.

The determination of any diminished value will be made on a case-by-case basis. You can open the box and inspect the fabrics and colours of the goods with due care, provided that the opening is done without damaging the box. If the box is damaged you shall expect that the value of the goods will have been diminished. Any installation of the goods should also be expected to result in a diminished value of the goods.
