If goods are damaged and have been signed for in good condition we will require photographs of the damage.
You may collect your product(s) from our warehouse, by prior arrangement. It is a working warehouse; not a showroom and therefore due to HSE and insurance rules, we cannot allow members of the public to enter the warehouse.

Stoves are large and heavy, and it is your responsibility to make sure the vehicle is capable of taking the load.
We will ONLY FORK LIFT the product into a VAN or otherwise suitably large vehicle in its normal vertical position.
Warehouse staff may decide to lift a stove into a car at their own discretion, but Greymetal, its agents or employees, accept no liability for any damage to the vehicle or purchased products when loading.

If the carrier will not allow us to open the goods then our warehouse will refuse delivery and the goods will be returned to you on your carrier. This could incur further costs to you. Items returned must be sent by recorded delivery.
We can arrange for the return of the goods, however you will be charged the cost of returning the item to us, which may be more than the original delivery charge as delivery is usually subsidised in the cost of the stove.
