If the customer wishes to return goods to the Supplier, they should first contact the The Supplier department. The customer will need to detail the items to be returned, and the reason for the return. This needs to take place within 48 hours of the initial delivery date.
22.2. Each return will be assessed individually and a decision will be communicated to the Customer.

    22.3.1. All shipping costs to return the goods to the Supplier at Talke are paid for by the customer.

23. Damaged goods

23.1. Initially, if the packaging appears to be damaged on receipt of goods then the customer will need to write this clearly on the couriers’/delivery companies’ paperwork along with a signature at the time of receiving the goods.

23.2. The Supplier will allow a 48-hour time frame (starting from the time of the initial delivery) for the Customer to check all goods received for damages. If goods received are in fact damaged (at the fault of the Supplier or our chosen delivery company), this should be notified to the Supplier within the 48-hour frame. The customer should first contact the Supplier and will need to provide full details of the damages (along with a DDT number to allow the order to be traced easily) along with photographs of the damaged goods.
23.3. The decision of the Supplier with regards to reported damaged goods will depend on whether it affects the aesthetics of the product(s) or the overall appearance of the store. The Supplier will decide to either:-
    23.3.1. Request that the customer dispose of the damaged goods and the Supplier will raise a credit note to the customer’s account.
    23.3.2. Request that the customer dispose of the damaged goods and the Supplier will send out free of charge replacements for all damaged goods.
    23.3.3.Arrange collection of the damaged goods from the customer’s premises. Once the stock has been received and checked by the Supplier, a credit note will be raised or free of charge replacements will be sent out
    23.3.4.Agree a discounted figure for the damaged goods rather than replacing or crediting – this will be authorised by the Managing Director.
    23.3.5.Confirm that the Supplier is not responsible for the damaged goods, and they remain fully chargeable. The Supplier will endeavour to speed up the manufacturing of replacement goods that the Customer must order via another purchase order;

Please note – Any damages reported outside of the 48-hour time frame will not be considered for replacement or credit.

24. Shortages

24.1. Any shortages should be notified to the Supplier within 48 hours of the initial delivery of the order. The customer should first contact the Supplier giving full details of the products(s) short delivered.
24.2. The Supplier will immediately endeavour to manufacture and deliver the goods claimed as short of. This is NOT an acceptance of responsibility and the Customer may still be charged for the goods and the delivery charges. This is done to expedite operations onsite.
24.3. The Supplier will then investigate the shortage and will decide either:-
    24.3.1. It has not supplied short because all internal checks of paperwork and stock prove the goods have left (this happens typically when products are lost onsite or when the shopfit proceed with a layout revision different to the one used to quote for the shelving);
    24.3.2.it has supplied short and once confirmed by the Supplier Operations Manager or Warehouse Team Leader that the shortage is due to an error by the Supplier, will then arrange for products to be sent as soon as possible after the shortage has been reported. Should the customer require an express delivery service, the customer will be responsible for any additional cost incurred, unless pre agreed by the Supplier in writing.
24.4. The Supplier remains not liable for any extra cost for onsite labour, extra fitting time, loss of revenue etc for the customer, third party or any other claims

Please note – Any shortages reported outside of the 48-hour time frame will not be considered for credit or replacement. ​
