Each product purchased is sold subject to its product description which sets out additional specific conditions related to that product including, without limitation, terms and conditions concerning estimated delivery dates and times, warranties, after-sales service and guarantees.
We will take all reasonable care to ensure that all details, descriptions and prices of products appearing on the website are correct at the time when the relevant information was entered onto the system. Although we aim to keep the website as up to date as possible, the information including product descriptions appearing on this website at a particular time may not always reflect the position exactly at the moment you place an order. We cannot confirm the price of a product until your order is accepted in accordance with our order acceptance policy.
Artificial grass production is subject to slight variation in pattern, blade length and colour. The company will not be held responsible for such variations.
8 Order Errors
If your order contains any errors you must immediately advise us by telephone or email. We will do our best to amend these for you however due to our quick dispatch this may not always be possible. Once your order has been dispatched no changes what so ever are possible and you will become liable for cancellation and return charges as outlined below. We reserve the right to refuse or cancel any order at any time prior to completed delivery, without being liable for any damages or costs incurred.
9 Delivery Times and Delivery Delays
We are unable to give a precise delivery time unless it has been agreed in advance. Our standard delivery time is 5 to 7 working days anytime between the hours of 8am and 8pm.
This is not a definitive guide. Please be aware that Fabgrass will not entertain any claim for compensation because of a late delivery, which is handled by a third party carrier and is out of our control. We cannot accept any liability for time or economic loss as a result of, but not limited to; advanced installation bookings, employment holiday, event delay and alike. Although we will make every effort to amend mistaken delivery addresses after the order has been placed, we cannot be held responsible for late deliveries if the customer has specified the incorrect address or postcode during checkout. If the order must then be forwarded to a new address, a charge for re-delivery will apply and we also reserve the right to deduct any such charge from any refund given should the order be subsequently cancelled.
Special instructions passed directly by yourself to the 3rd party carrier are treated as a non-guaranteed requests and are carried out at the carrier’s own discretion.
Proof of delivery is sufficient evidence to establish that goods have been received.
10 Your Delivery
Due to the size of some delivery vehicles any carriers delivering on our behalf must be informed of any restrictions regarding access. This includes (but is not limited to); steps, any overhanging/low trees/shrubs, steep driveways, narrow lanes, tight bends or any other restrictions that may make it difficult for the delivery vehicle to gain access to the point of delivery.
Upon delivery it will be necessary for the driver to obtain a signature. Drivers are allocated a maximum of 15 minutes to offload and obtain a signature.
Fabgrass will not accept any claims for compensation arising from non/failed/refused/delayed/returned deliveries by either yourself or the carrier on the basis of being unable to unload to an agreeable location within a 15-minute timescale or are prevented from do so by access restrictions.
Re-delivery or cancellations charges will be applicable when your order is finally delivered or returned to us. Most carriers’ deliver to the curb side immediately adjacent to their vehicle, the driver is not permitted to enter your premises. (The handling of the artificial grass is heavy & the roll cannot be bent, it may be easier to leave it outside until ready to be fitted) This is the case especially if you live in a block of flats or offices, the carriers will only deliver to the ground floor entrance.
11 Failed Deliveries
If for any reason the carrier is unable to deliver. Your order will be returned to the
carrier’s local depot where it will be held for a maximum of 3-5 days, then
automatically returned to us. Charges will apply for re-delivery. Cancellations will be
subject to fees.
If the carrier is able to leave your order with a neighbour or other deemed suitable
party, we cannot be held responsible if the order is left in the wrong location. We
are unable to request the carrier to return and move the items.
12 Damages in Transit
As damages can occur in transit and issues can arise to prevent the delivery that are out of our control, we cannot accept any liability for time or financial loss as a result of, for example but not limited to; advanced fitter booking, employment holiday etc.
These provisions made are by your choice and at your discretion, but do not affect your statutory rights. We would also ask all customers to check their order in full prior to arranging any additional services or aforementioned costs, as we cannot be held liable for additional costs incurred. If your order is found to be incorrect on delivery or inspection, we will arrange for a replacement item or refund for any incorrect items at no additional cost to you.
If the order you receive has any damage on the exterior packaging you must check the contents and list the damage on the driver's delivery note, if the words 'goods delivered in good condition' are on the delivery form next to your signature they need to be crossed out. If you are at all worried about the goods being damaged, you must sign for the goods as ‘Damaged’ on receipt or refuse delivery. Any damage must be reported to Select Imports within 24 hours of signing. If someone else is signing on your behalf they must be made aware of the above. If the roll is damaged and you have failed to make any attempt to list this on the delivery note, Fabgrass or the carrier cannot be held responsible.
13 Your Acceptance of Material Supplied
We reserve the right to over supply each cut length but up to 1m. However, will follow the guidance of BS 3655 (roll materials tolerance of +/- 1.25%) with regard to shortage claims. We would always advise customers to take this into account when deciding on the measurements to purchase. We cannot be held responsible any orders that are too short within these British Standard tolerances. Our cutting machines are fully automated however errors of a size or material type nature may occur if miss programmed by the operator. We will investigate a claim for an error as soon as we are advised, this will involve confirming the data entered by the operator and also an item weight check obtained from the delivery carrier.
You will need to supply us with photographic evidence for all claims in relation to errors in material type supplied. If we are in agreement that an error has taken place we will immediately replace the items. We reserve the right for us to collect the original item/s before a replacement is dispatched in all cases where it is unclear to us how the error occurred. You must co-operate and make yourself available for collections (which may be on a different day than the replacement is received) of any item/s that needs returning to us. If the courier is unable to collect for any reason the uncollected item/s will be deemed as an outstanding debt at the full price, you will also be liable for all further costs involved in collecting and transporting of the return back to us.
We will not entertain any compensation claims regardless of fault due to errors in size or material supplied, we cannot accept any liability for time or economic loss as a result of, but not limited to; advanced installation bookings, employment holiday, event delay and alike. We recommend that you time your delivery to allow at least 3 working days before the required date so that you can fully check your order.
You must ensure that both yourself and/or your nominated installer are fully aware of the following:
-Once you or your installer has cut or made any modification to the material then you have accepted it as a suitable non-faulty product and it cannot be returned. This does not effect your statutory rights.
All items supplied must be carefully inspected before installation to check there is no issues in regard to; type, specification, size, quantity, colour matching, manufacturing faults or delivery damage. If any of the above are found in material supplied you must not commence installation, report the issue immediately to us by either telephone, email or fax. Do not install any items until we have replied to you, even if item is fault-free.
Under no circumstance what so ever will Fabgrass accept claims for any of the above once the material has been cut and/or installed in any way.
15 Distance Selling Regulations 2000
Under the Distance Selling Regulations 13c, you cannot cancel any customised orders once it has been cut and/or dispatched. However, if an order has already left our possession, we will require you to pay the associated costs of returning the item to us before we will refund the purchase as well as any cutting fees. Once the item has been delivered you have the standard 7 days statutory rights to report any manufacturing flaws or internal damage. However, if the product has been used (fitting / attempted fitting) or you do not have the packaging, this will be deemed as acceptance of goods and we will not accept the return.

You may cancel your order for a full refund prior to your order being cut and/or dispatched. If you cancel your order after it has been dispatched, you are responsible for all freight charges incurred by Fabgrass. These freight charges will be based on carrier’s cost price.
If you refuse to accept delivery of your order for any other reason than the product being damaged in transit, you are liable for all outward and return freight charges incurred by your refusal. Please be aware that cut to size items also carry a minimum cutting fee.
If the customer wishes to return a product within their 7 days statutory rights period a full refund (minus a 3rd party collection charge and cutting fee if applicable) will be issued if the following conditions are met:
• Goods must be rolled/sealed in the original packaging.
• Goods must not have been used, tampered with or fitted in any way
• Goods must be returned in full, including all parts and any free products or documentation.
• In accordance with Distance Selling Regulations, we require an email confirmation that you wish to return your item(s).

A charge for collection will be deducted from the refund if the product(s) are untainted and the customer changes their mind. This charge is dependent upon your location and the weight of the product(s).
