General Terms and Conditions of Sale
The parquet is reserved to you on ordering. This is subject to prompt payment, i.e. within 3 days unless otherwise agreed.
Methods of Payment
Online: we use Sage Pay secure payments for online orders. Or PayPal secure payment if preferred.
Telephone: we use a secure virtual terminal for over the phone orders and payment. We do not retain any financial data.
Instant Bank Transfer: we can email you an invoice so you can make an online payment by instant bank transfer.
Cheque: we no longer accept cheques.
Delivery and/or Collection
All orders purchased online are available for delivery within the UK mainland and Northern Ireland only. Deliveries are by Palletline or similar haulage company. We will send out delivery instructions with your receipted invoice; however, delivery details are also available to view on the website. We generally send out orders within 6-8 working days.
We can arrange for delivery to Europe but not via the website. Please contact our office directly to discuss.
When you are ready to receive your order please contact Parquet-Parquet by telephone to confirm your preferred delivery date (Monday – Friday but there are no timed deliveries).
If you are unable to accept delivery after purchasing your parquet please advise us. We will make arrangements to put it into our storage facility free of charge until you are ready to fit the parquet floor.
Once a date is arranged, we will send out your parquet via a pallet delivery haulier/courier in time for that delivery date. Please note however that there are rare occasions, such as unusual traffic, weather events or other such matters which could cause a delay. This is beyond our control and we hope you would exercise patience as we try to resolve your matters with the delivery agency.
The goods we sell have been used previously therefore will not be perfect. Expect blocks to be useable after it has been prepared, sanded and polished. All of this is described on the website and there are photos to illustrate the difference. Please note, we add a little extra to all our pallets. This gives you spare block to cover any minor problems which may arise from the imperfections of reclaimed material.
Any material we supply to you will be of satisfactory quality as a reclaimed item. If we have delivered material to you that is not of useable quality in error, you should contact us for a replacement or, where this is not possible, for a refund.
Extra cleaning options:
It is not automatic that blocks are cleaned, the standard order is in reclaimed condition. If you require a special order of blocks which are pre-cleaned, then we offer this service for an extra cost. We have 3 levels of cleaned blocks:
- Base clean – removal of bitumen from the base.
- Fitting clean – as above plus edges cleaned and tongues removed ready for fitting.
- Fitting clean and thicknessing – as above plus blocks thicknessed to required depth. This is particularly useful for matching existing floors.
Please discuss the options with us if you chose to take up this service. We can advise you of the 3 price options.
Please note we never sand any orders, except samples. This is because it is impractical and costly with individual blocks.
We encourage customers to receive a sample so that customers can understand the nature of reclaimed parquet. It does require work and it is important to expect that.
We therefore send out 2 free samples. These samples are selected randomly from the specific supply available for sale. The surface of the samples is sanded but otherwise the block is in ‘as reclaimed’ condition. This is intended to help the customer understand the level of cleaning and preparation inevitably required for reclaimed parquet. If you require more samples, we reserve the right to make a modest charge which covers postage and preparation and we limit it to a total of 4 for commercially sensitive reasons.
We will not be liable if we are prevented or delayed from complying with our obligations under these General Terms and Conditions by anything you (or anyone acting on your behalf) does or fails to do, or due to events which are beyond our reasonable control.
Furthermore, we are not liable for any losses related to your business or works schedule. This includes (without limitation) lost data, lost profits, lost revenues or business interruption.
Care of your parquet
You must follow any advice we give you to keep products we supply to you safe. This will be found on our delivery notes. We cannot accept liability for damage to material supplied by us which is caused by your failure to follow our advice.

You must take reasonable care of the order that you wish to cancel. Items should not be used by you and returned within 14 days of cancellation, where possible in their original packaging.

We will arrange collection on your behalf at your cost (up to, but not limited to £70 per pallet depending on your location). This will be within 14 days of cancellation.

The manner of refund will be the same method as payment.
We are able to offer you a free storage service. This can be useful with your project timing. If for any reason your project does not proceed, we will not refund the purchase price, but we will refund the delivery charge. We will offer to sell your parquet for you, net of costs, or send it to you as originally planned. It is your purchased parquet which we are storing free of charge.
