Product information is offered in good faith, and should only be regarded as a guide. It is intended to inform you about features included in said product, this is not a definitive list and there can be information that has not been added. Photographs provided on the website are for illustrative purposes only and may not exactly match the goods themselves.

Victorian Fireplace Store or its staff can not accept liability or responsibility for pricing, typographical or other errors on this web site. While we try and ensure that all prices on our website are accurate, errors may occur. If we discover an error in the price of goods you have ordered we will inform you as soon as possible and give you the option of reconfirming your order at the correct price, or cancelling it. If we are unable to contact you we will treat the order as cancelled. We reserve the right to review all orders placed online and refuse any order at our discretion. Remember doors, stoves and fireplaces are both heavy and fragile, and need careful handling and storing until installed.
Any quotation, estimate or price given by us is given in good faith but constitutes only an invitation to you to make an offer, and any order you place with us pursuant of a quotation, price or estimate given by us is not binding until such time as the order is accepted by us.

All orders can be placed either online or over the phone with one of our staff members. We accept payment by credit/debit cards through WorldPay, Paypal and Amazon Payments. Once your order has been processed you will be e-mailed an order confirmation outlining the goods you have purchased. When completing your order, your card will be debited with the order amount. Product lead times can vary, we try to keep as many products in stock as possible, but sometimes items will need to be ordered in to fulfill orders.
If you would prefer you can collect your order from our warehouse in Stockport, Manchester (full address available on the contact us page). While checking out simply select the ‘Local Pickup‘ method, or if you are ordering by phone let the person you are talking to know that you wish to collect. Once your order is with us and in stock, we will contact you to let you know. When you come down to collect the item/s ensure that you have a copy of your order, and some identification. If you are collecting on behalf of someone else, we need confirmation from our customer in advance so we can release the goods. We are more than happy to assist in loading, but remember some products are bulky/heavy items so bring a suitable sized vehicle.
Solid Fuel Use With Polished & Brass Products
If you choose to use solid fuel with your product (such as a Fireplace or Stove), please be aware that they will discolour polished or brass finishes. If this is a concern we recommend selecting a full black finish instead. If you choose to go against our recommendations then we cannot be held liable for any discolouring of your product/s.
Events Beyond Our Control
We shall have no liability to you for any failure to deliver goods you have ordered or any delay in doing so or for any damage or defect to goods delivered that is caused by any event or circumstance beyond our reasonable control including, without limitation, strikes, lock-outs and other industrial disputes, breakdown of systems or network access, flood, fire, explosion or accident.
Refund & Return Policy
Please Note: If you are not entirely satisfied with your purchase, we’re always here to help! Please do get in touch if there is an issue and we will try to resolve it.
By accepting our Terms & Conditions you agree to check any goods delivered to you for any faults or damage. Any issues with the goods need to be reported to us within 48 hours of delivery or no refunds/replacements can be issued.
Mail order, telephone and internet sales to private individuals are covered by the Consumer Protection or Distance Selling Regulations (2000), which protects you by providing a 7 day ‘cooling off’ period commencing the day after the product has been delivered. You have the right to cancel your order at any time, should you wish to do so we ask that you notify us in writing to the following e-mail address: email@example.com
We aim to be as fair and honest as possible with our customers which is why we have outlined our Refund & Return charges so you know where you stand should you need to cancel or return an item:
|Cancelling an Order – Within 24hours of placing the order||Full Refund Issued|
|Cancelling an Order – Before order is dispatched from us||Full Refund Issued*|

Your 7 day ‘cooling off’ period commences the day after you have received the goods.

|Returning an Order – After 7 day period||Partial Refund Issued, Less Restocking fee*|
|Returning an Order – After 30 days||Subject to our discretion, contact us for more information|
*Some of the products that we offer are ‘Special Order Items’ which means that we are unable to offer a full refund once an order has been placed to our supplier.
These items are made for you and you only and whether you order them online, or order them at our factory / shop, once the order is processed we cannot cancel.
Breakdown of Restocking Fees:
Restocking charges are outlined below, and are based on the order total. All restocking fees will be deducted from your refund, and will be issued by the same means that you paid.

We aim to supply goods in excellent condition. Please check your items on the day of delivery, any damages must be reported to our office within 24hrs. Failure to do so means that we cannot claim via our insurance with the courier, and may not be able to issue a replacement. It is vital for us to gather as much information about the nature of the damage and how it occurred, through this we ask if you can provide photographs of the damage and then e-mail them over to us urgently at firstname.lastname@example.org this will help us to contact the courier/supplier/manufacturer within their time frames. The documentation that is signed for at the time of delivery will play a pivotal role in these proceedings, so please ensure that it has been signed for correctly. If you have signed for something in good condition and then later realise that it is damaged, it is very difficult for us to get a successful claim, and this can result in additional costs being incurred by you. Please take the time to check the goods fully before you sign for them.
If you request that an order be held or delayed, prices and terms and conditions in effect at time of order shall apply. Arrangements for holding/storage will be made directly between yourself and the Seller. Any costs associated with the storage including demurrage, preparation for storage, storage charges and handling shall be billable by the carrier and payable by you.
Returns & Refund
Customers are responsible for returning goods and the costs associated in doing so back to us. Returned goods must be unmarked and free from blemishes of any kind, the total refundable amount is dependent on goods being returned to us in the same ‘good condition’ that they were received in (we would advise keeping all packaging if you are considering returning an item). We can collect items if you are unable to send them back to us (this is a chargeable service, and will be deducted from your refund) please speak to a member of our customer services team for more information on cancelling an order.
Once we receive your item, we will inspect it and notify you that we have received your returned item. Providing we have received the goods back in ‘good condition’ with a valid returns note, refunds will be issued within 72hours. We will notify you on the status of your refund after inspecting the item.
You will be responsible for paying for your own shipping costs for returning your item. Shipping costs are non-refundable. If you receive a refund, the cost of return shipping will be deducted from your refund.
