If you are collecting your flooring from us there are some requirements that must be adhered to for goods to be released. We provide a PDF document with every order detailing your order and the documentation you must bring. Please ensure you bring a form of ID (Passport, Driving Licence etc) and the payment card used. Please note the signature on each must match. This process is in place to ensure that we do not release goods without first confirming the cardholder is present.
For fraud prevention purposes as a company, we do not allow for third-party carriers to collect materials, unless payment is made by bank transfer and we are informed prior to collection.
Please note that before an order is complete we may have to contact you to confirm delivery fee’s for your order. There may be additional delivery charges applicable to your order but we will contact you to confirm these prior to the order being complete.
Deliveries are made on your requested day approximately between the hours of 8 am to 7 pm. Unfortunately, requests for an E.T.A (Estimated Time of Delivery) are at the courier’s discretion. Where possible we will advise you at the time of order of approximate delivery lead-times, exceptions may apply.
All delivery services could be made on a lorry or a van so it is assumed that the delivery address will be accessible. If there is likely to be a problem please inform us at the time of order to discuss alternative delivery options. Please ensure you inform the courier of any known restrictions that may prevent delivery – e.g. un-adopted roads, rural location, low bridges or width restrictions. The seller will not be held responsible for any delays caused by known restrictions.
If your order arrives as arranged but we’re unable to deliver because there’s nobody home, there’s inadequate help available, the goods are refused, or the order is cancelled whilst in transit (goods are in transit 24hrs before the chosen delivery date) you will be liable for any additional costs incurred for the goods being returned. The return delivery charge for failed deliveries is an £ 85.00 minimum or £ 0.70 per kg, whichever the greater.
It is important to check the packaging for any visual damage to the goods and sign for your order on arrival. If you are unfortunate enough to receive damaged goods or there are missing items, please make sure it is noted on the courier’s paperwork. We also require you to contact us directly within 24 hours to make sure we are aware of the problem. All damages should be reported within 24-hours of receipt for insurance purposes, and photographic proof should be sent to [email protected].
The delivery process ends once your goods have been signed for. Therefore we recommend you make provisions to receive the products as they will need to be moved to a safe location and if you have any problems please feel free to contact our team using the Live Chat link at the bottom of this page.
We cannot be responsible for any consequential losses, therefore we advise against booking installers until goods have been received and checked.
Standard delivery is made to the kerbside due to insurance guidelines so please arrange for adequate help to carry goods into your property. Please note that for standard deliveries, drivers are unable to dispose of packaging materials, including pallets. These are to be disposed of by the customer in an appropriate way.
Delivery charges to the UK vary by product and delivery area. Estimated delivery times can be found on the delivery tab on each product page, and delivery charges will be confirmed at checkout. However, due to the nature of our products, these may occasionally need to be altered after an order has been placed, if this is the case our sales team will be in touch with you ASAP to arrange alternate means/discuss the order further.

Safe Place Deliveries.
At Best at Flooring, we understand that life gets busy and even within an allocated delivery date it can be difficult to make sure you’re in to sign for deliveries. To help you avoid missing deliveries and associated re-delivery charges, we now offer a Safe Place Delivery option on parcel orders of less than £100*.
You can choose the Safe Place Delivery option by providing details of your safe place at the time of ordering or in writing to [email protected] at least 24 hours prior to delivery.
In accordance with the Consumer rights Act 2015, when you choose the Safe Place Delivery option you will be responsible for the goods being left in accordance with your instructions so before you select this option be sure you have a good safe place. That means somewhere that’s protected from the elements, easy for delivery drivers to find and out of plain sight. Popular examples include porches, sheds, greenhouses or even dedicated Safe Parcel Delivery Boxes that are widely available to buy online.
* Safe place deliveries can be offered on parcel services only; if the products have to be sent on a pallet this service is not available. If no Safe Place is provided and no-one is home to sign for the delivery, re-delivery charges may apply.
Storage of Products
We will only keep products in our warehouse for a maximum of three months after the date of your order. This includes any part-fitted products. You must accept delivery of your products within this time. If not, you authorise us to dispose of your products with no liability on us. In the event that we agree to store your products for longer than three months, we will advise you of the charges for storage, and you agree to pay such charges in advance. Further, you accept that during the period in excess of three months, your products may be damaged and you accept full responsibility for such damage.
The calculator provided on our product pages has been designed to be as user friendly as possible and is highly accurate, there may be times where prices quoted in the calculator are not accurate due to the complex calculations being made and the number of products we are maintaining on our site; therefore we cannot be held responsible for inaccurate quotes based on this calculated price, however, we do ask that if you spot an error to advise us immediately.
Please be aware all product imagery on our website is accurate to the best of our knowledge. In rare instances there may be errors in products matching the images on display, if you feel there is an error or you would like to check with us, simply call or email us.
The colour representation of the product images is not guaranteed, we always recommend ordering a sample or visiting your local floor coverings showroom to see the product for yourself.
Carpet Specific Conditions of Sale
When ordering from BestatFlooring via the website or over the phone you have a right to cancel and return your order up to 14 days after receiving your order. Some products like Carpets & Lino (Vinyl Rolls) are excluded from this policy as they are cut to your bespoke size. Please note you will be responsible for the organisation and cost of returning the item(s) to us. All items must be returned in the same packaging and condition in which they were received by you.
In the unlikely event that you receive faulty or damaged goods, please contact us prior to cutting and/or fitting the item(s) and we will arrange for the faulty or damaged goods to be collected and replaced. Unfortunately, if any ordered item is removed from its original condition (for example cut and fitted) we will be unable to replace or give a full refund for the item(s).
When you receive your order, please remove all packaging and thoroughly check the ordered item(s) before booking your flooring fitter to ensure it is the correct quality, size, pattern and colour as you expected, and free from damage and/or defects. Once you have cut into and/or fitted the item, you are the owner and bestatflooring.co.uk cannot be held responsible for any exchanges or fitting costs.
Packaging and the product itself can include staples or sharp objects. Please ensure that you or your fitter have checked the product thoroughly for such items and removed all such packaging with care before securing the item(s) for everyday usage. Online Carpets cannot be held liable for any injuries incurred by anyone where the item(s) purchased have been installed without being thoroughly checked for sharp objects prior to or during the installation process.
Please note, we are unable to guarantee an exact colour match on different rolls. If an exact colour match is required please contact us at the time of ordering and we will do all that we can to help. An exact colour match is especially hard to achieve when different widths have been used, or the flooring has been ordered on different dates.
All pile carpets, especially plain grounds are liable (after they have been in use for some time) to shading, i.e. to show light and dark patched areas. This is due to the uneven pressing of the surface by treading. Light and delicately shaded carpets are liable to become soiled with wear and it may appear that the colours have faded. Both tendencies are inherent in all pile fabrics and therefore we cannot accept any responsibility for complaints arising from either of these causes.
All dimensions are in accordance with British Standards 3655 (1974) +/- 1.25% in width and/or length.

We are unable to guarantee colour or pattern matching and we strongly suggest you view a product in person prior to ordering. You may contact us for product samples. Pictures are for guidance only and we cannot be responsible for shade/colour matching to the existing flooring. For carpets from different size widths, we cannot guarantee an exact match.
