Terms & Conditions of Maison Sale
PURCHASER: By submitting an order, Buyer confirms that it is a valid business (as described below) and that it agrees to be bound by this Agreement. TSM reserves the right to cancel orders or terminate this Agreement, and any relationship created by it, at its sole discretion.
PRICING: All prices & items are subject to change without notice.
SHIPPING AND RISK OF LOSS: TSM does not arrange shipment. Buyer must arrange for transport of the goods from TSM warehouse. Delivery of goods to Buyer’s carrier constitutes delivery to Buyer and all risk of loss or damage as well as the duty to secure, package, and protect the goods transfers to the Buyer upon delivery.
DAMAGES AND CLAIMS: TARA SHAW is NOT responsible for freight damages. All items are carefully inspected before shipping by our staff and respective shipping company. You or your receiving agent MUST INSPECT each item upon delivery and any damages must be clearly noted on the carrier’s bill of lading before the driver leaves your location. Please contact us immediately so that we can help make sure that everything is taken care of promptly and thoroughly. If damages are not noted at the time of delivery than we have no recourse with your carrier and no claims will be honored. Knots, gouges, cracks and nail holes are inherent characteristics of many of our wood products and do not constitute damage/defects, no claims will be considered for these characteristics. The majority of our products are made from pine like the European originals and naturally crack with time.
NO LIABILITY FOR DELAY: Delivery dates & lead times are estimates only and subject to change; TSM will not be liable for loss or damage due to delay or inability to deliver regardless of the reason for the delay or inability to deliver. Under no circumstances shall TSM be liable for any special, consequential, incidental, indirect, or liquidated damages, losses, or expenses (even if caused by TSM’s sole negligence or fault) arising directly or indirectly from delays or failure to give notice of delay or inability to deliver.
INSPECTION FOR DAMAGES/DEFECTS: The Buyer has the right to inspect the goods and TSM recommends that Buyer or Buyer’s carrier inspect the goods at time of delivery. Written notice of any damage must be given to TSM before the goods are removed from the TSM warehouse. Buyer or Buyer’s carrier’s failure to inspect or failure to give such notice will constitute unqualified acceptance and a waiver of any claims by Buyer. Buyer agrees that any damage not brought to TSM’s attention by written notice before the goods have left the warehouse considered to have occurred after the goods have left the warehouse.
RETURNS: No returns or damaged goods will be accepted without a written return authorization issued by a TSM representative. Returns are subject to a 35% handling/restocking charge, except for goods shipped-in-error. Store credit will be issued for all authorized returns.
MEASUREMENTS & AVAILABILITY: TSM’s goods conform to the examples displayed on TSM’s website, and shown in its showrooms. Buyer understands the look of TSM products and the characteristics of TSM’s hand finished goods. Measurements are approximations. Photography is a representation & is not an accurate representation of the color.
VARIATIONS IN GOODS: Because of the variation & aging in natural materials & hand finishing, TSM does not guarantee the grain or texture of wood or painted surfaces, the aging of patinas on wood, leafed or painted surfaces, marble, stone or any other natural materials. Variation in product is expected because of the handcrafted nature of the TSM line. Due to environmental elements and relative humidity, wood will sometimes expand and shrink. We take great care to construct our furniture in a manner that allows the wood to shrink and expand. Under drastic temperature changes, cracks may sometimes appear; however, this is a very rare occurrence. Damage claims of this nature will be assessed on an individual basis if they are received within three months. We do NOT accept returns without written authorization from our office.
