The Buyer shall be informed of the new price and will need to confirm in writing, their acceptance of the new quotation.
Any advice or recommendation given by the Company or its employees or agents to the Buyer or its employees or agents as to the storage, application or use of the Goods which is not confirmed in writing by the Company is followed or acted upon entirely at the Buyer’s own risk and accordingly the Company shall not be liable for any such advice or recommendation which is not so confirmed. As of 1st April 2020, no orders will be processed by the Company unless a written order is received from the Buyer in which the written order expressly confirms acceptance of the responsibility for the choice, and the quantity of bricks being ordered. Payment of the Pro-forma invoice would also indicate that the Buyer takes responsibility for the choice of the brick.
Provision of the correct delivery details including postcode is the responsibility of the customer. Any costs arising from aborted deliveries due to lack of attendance or providing suitable access will be passed on to the customer. Delivery times are provided by sub-contracted carriage companies and are therefore estimates and are not contractually considered part of the terms of the order. Goods will be deemed to be accepted on the signature of the hauliers delivery note. Even if no signature is obtained at the time of delivery, the delivery will have been assumed to have taken place. Should there be a discrepancy regarding the goods received this should be notified to the supplier, FindABrick UK ltd, in writing within 3 days (by email to: email@example.com) The company may withhold delivery of the goods if any sums due to it are still outstanding or overdue, or if the customer becomes insolvent before payment is complete.
Any orders for bricks or other related building materials will be transacted by the registered company known as: “FindABrick UK ltd”.
FindABrick UK ltd is registered in the UK for VAT registration no 339 9952 37. Once a written order has been accepted, and the description of the goods that have been quoted for is confirmed by the customer as correct, the order may not be cancelled without the consent of the proprietor.
All costs incurred by the company as a result of the cancellation shall be paid on demand by the customer. Should any goods be returned to the manufacturer or distributor they may impose a re-stocking charge, as well as the return to Works Haulage charge, which will be passed back to the customer; the costs of which would be deducted from any refund due.
All specially made orders, like a brick arch for example, will require an authoritative signature on a drawing and /or written order to confirm the specification of what is to be made. All specially made orders need to be checked by the customer whose responsibility it is to confirm the quantities, dimensions, colours and any other relevant technical properties exclusive to that order. All purpose made orders are non returnable and will be charged at the full quoted price. Special Orders will also include bricks that are made to order by the manufacturer, and are not bricks made for merchant stock. These would include Bricks specified for projects like Glazed bricks and Special Shaped bricks.
Samples of materials will be provided by the company to show the substance and general character of the product being sought. The goods supplied will be deemed to correspond with the sample if they are reasonably similar in colour, texture, size and shape. The goods supplied will also comply with the published standards such as BS-EN or BBA accreditation. No refunds will be possible where minor variations in aesthetics occur in the products supplied, notwithstanding the rights of the consumer prevailing at the time of the dispatch. In cases where the manufacturers sample panel is deemed to significantly differ from the bricks supplied it will be the responsibility of the manufacturer to demonstrate by site visit that the products can be swapped over or returned for a refund.
In the unlikely event that goods be supplied on an account basis, the ownership of the goods shall remain with the business known as ‘FindABrick UK ltd’ until such time as the goods are paid for in full. Risk for the storage or movement of the goods will however remain with the customer from the point of delivery.
DAMAGE IN TRANSIT
The company’s liability for purpose made goods damaged in transit will be to repair or replace them free of charge.
Any costs associated with subsequent delays to projects will not be considered to be an intrinsic part of the contract to supply the goods. In the case of breakages and chipping of facing bricks it will be determined by the manufacturers published allowances whether the breakages and / or chipping are considered excessive or not. As a guide most Brick Manufacturers DOP data sheets indicate that it is realistic to expect between 5% and 10% wastage, which needs to be taken into account by the Buyer when ordering.
LIMITATION OF LIABILITY DUE TO MANUFACTURING DEFECTS
Save in the case of personal injury or death arising from a defect in the goods supplied, the liability of FindABrick UK ltd shall be limited to the repair or replacement of the goods before installation, and once installed, the company shall have no liability for defects in them.

FindABrick UK Ltd do not have a yard; neither do they operate delivery vehicles.
LIMITATION OF LIABILITY WHEN SUPPLIER CEASES TRADING
In the unlikely event of a Supplier to FindABrick UK ltd going out of business before supplying any goods that have been ordered and paid for FindABrick will be limited to refunding simply the profit it would have made if it had been able to complete the transaction. Once FindABrick UK ltd have paid for goods to the supplier that the customer (Buyer) has ordered, it may not be possible to retrieve those funds to refund the Buyer in full. Efforts would of course be made via any liquidators to be reimbursed any monies paid for goods not yet received, or that may never be received. As FindABrick UK ltd have no liquid or fixed assets, and no yard with stock, there would be no option to sue for a refund, as there would be no assets to seize for the value of the goods not supplied.
FindABrick exist to provide the service of locating supplies of bricks and associated products, either for new developments of multi home projects, or as a brick-matching service where the closest possible bricks are identified to match existing buildings. Samples are always offered, and if requested are then sent from the manufacturers for approval by the customer (the Buyer) who takes responsibility for ensuring that his customer, the end-user / homeowner is also completely in agreement with the type of brick being ordered. Should the homeowner choose to reject the bricks ordered by the Buyer after they have been delivered, it will be the responsibility of the Buyer to resolve the dispute with his client. Any costs arising from returning the bricks to the manufacturer or merchant stockist – if they agree to do so – and any re-stocking charge will be borne by the buyer. Suppliers of bricks generally only accept the return of unopened packs.
FindABrick will endeavour to negotiate the least costly method of returning the goods, but is not bound to do so, as it is not responsible for the final choice of the brick – it is the Buyer who ensures that he or she is ordering the correct product.
Goods are supplied to the warranties of the company’s suppliers / manufacturers. All Technical Data Sheets / DOPs are available to anyone via the Manufacturers websites. All data sheets are downloadable for the careful consideration by the Buyer so that the Buyer can be completely convinced that the choice is appropriate for the location and / or a good match to the existing building.
