The Cover Company
Whilst we endeavour to illustrate and describe our goods as fully as we can, we recognise that the website alone will not answer all your questions. Please feel free to contact us to discuss any points that need clarification. We welcome the contact.
We accept all major credit and debit cards except Diners. Payment can also be made by Cheque or Paypal. You must ensure that all details given for payment are correct including the full Card Statement Address.
Arrangements for payment and for delivery of goods or performance of services if no date is specified must be within 30 days of the order.
Manufactured Goods including Generic Car Covers
Most items will be shipped in 2-3 working days though out of stock items can take 7-10 working days. Lower priced items are normally sent via Royal Mail to keep costs to a minimum. We are not able to specify exact delivery time or dates on such deliveries. If express delivery is needed we can dispatch via Carrier (at extra cost) for next working day delivery. Please contact us if you need next day delivery. Owing to local traffic conditions, we need to contact the Carrier by 2.30-3pm for the collection to be completed.
Fully Tailored Car Covers, Caravan Covers, Motorhome Covers and Custom Made products
All orders for Fully Tailored Car Covers are made to the customers specification and whilst we endeavour to supply in 2 - 3 weeks orders can take up to 5 weeks from the date of order.
Fully Tailored Caravan and Motorhome Covers are normally supplied within 4 weeks from receipt of order.
At peak times these schedules can take longer.
Shortages and Errors
It is your responsibility to contact us regarding any shortages or packing errors within 7 days of receipt of goods. You must check all items are exactly as ordered upon receipt.
Despite our best efforts, there can sometimes be unforeseen delays in delivery. Whilst every reasonable effort shall be made to keep any delivery date, time of delivery shall not be of the essence and we shall not be liable for any losses, costs, damages or expenses incurred by the customer or any other person or company arising directly or indirectly out of any failure to meet estimated delivery date.
Availability of Goods
All products are subject to availability. In the event of an item being unavailable we will contact you to discuss the options. If you do not wish to proceed with the offered alternatives then your order can be cancelled.
Our products are guaranteed against faulty materials and workmanship. All products have a 1-year warranty or longer if relevant. Warranties are covered by the Original Manufacturers Guarantee. This is in addition to the consumer's statutory rights.
In the event of a fault being suspected please contact us to determine the best solution. Some items may need to be submitted for factory inspection for fault analysis before replacement or refund can take place. Whilst we endeavour to keep this process to as short a time scale as possible we cannot guarantee any time period for factory inspections. Products returned and found not to be faulty will be subject to a 25% re-stocking fee.
It is the Consumers responsibility to inform us of incorrect supply within 48 hours. The goods must not be used or damaged. We will need information (part numbers, etc) regarding the incorrect items. Should there be extenuating circumstances that prevent informing us within the stated time frame, resolution shall be by mutual decision.
