Terms and Conditions of Sale

The following are terms and conditions for the sale of goods that will govern any contract for sale that we enter into with you. Please read these terms and conditions carefully.

Stowfords' Terms and Conditions These Terms and Conditions tell you the rights and obligations you have. Please read these carefully. You may have other rights granted by law and these Terms and Conditions do not affect these. This does not affect your statutory rights as a consumer.

The company’s registered number is 3395458. The directors are J Mulligan and F Mulligan.

Purchasing from our showroom

To purchase from us you must be over 18 and resident in the United Kingdom. Currently, we can only deliver within the United Kingdom. By placing an order with us, you are offering to buy the goods and allowing us to use your personal details for the purposes of supplying the goods (including passing your details onto couriers and other subcontractors). By signing this agreement you are also giving us your consent for us to keep you informed about issues related to the company and services/products it offers. Should you wish to have your details removed from our system please contact us using the details above.

We are not obliged to supply the goods to you until we have confirmed acceptance of your order and this is when the contract is made. You do not own the goods until we receive payment in full. If you discover you have made a mistake with your order please contact us immediately.

All prices and offers are subject to change and availability and VAT will be charged on all prices at the current rate. All prices displayed in the shop will include VAT but on some products the ex VAT price may also be displayed. All prices on the web site are shown both including and excluding VAT. Errors and omissions excepted. For stock items we require payment in full at the time of purchase. For items which need to be ordered for you, we require a 20% deposit with the balance payable on collection or before delivery but for certain items such as non-standard sizes of bed, or more unusual colour and size combinations, we will require a 50% deposit. We accept Visa, Mastercard, Maestro and Solo and we will only accept personal cheques for deposits. If you wish to make a balance payment by cheque, we will require payment at least 10 working days before delivery to allow for cheque clearance. For out of stock items, the delivery dates given are the best estimate based on current information from the manufacturer.


For non-stock items which are ordered for you, such as sofas, recliners, beds or office chairs, please consider carefully before you order. If you do decide to cancel an order which you have placed, a charge will be made as we may well be unable to cancel its production and delivery to us. So if you do wish to cancel, please inform us as soon as possible so that we can contact the manufacturer. If we cannot cancel the order with the manufacturer, we will charge you a minimum of 25% of the value of your order, to cover handling and disposal of the unplanned stock. For certain items such as non-standard sizes of bed, or more unusual colour and size combinations, we will require a 50% deposit with the order and will charge you a minimum of 30% of the value of the order if cancelled because of the difficulty of disposal.

Second thoughts

If, after delivery, you change your mind, there is no obligation for us to take the goods back for a refund. Items such as sofas, recliners, beds or office chairs that have been ordered for you in in your choice of finish will not be taken back by our suppliers and can be very difficult for us to re-sell. Under some circumstances we may offer to take the goods back, but we will charge a restocking fee of 50% to allow us to discount the goods to clear. Delivery We aim to deliver goods to you within the time indicated by us but we cannot give an exact delivery date. We also may deliver the goods in several consignments but will not charge any extra delivery for this. If we have not delivered the goods within 60 days of expected delivery, then you may cancel the contract. We will refund any money paid by you.

Damaged or defective goods

We will supply goods that are free from defects in materials and workmanship for a period of 12 months (or longer if required by law) from the date of delivery. You should inspect the goods when you receive them for defects or damage. If you find a defect or damage you must tell us as soon as possible and we will arrange for their return to us or the manufacturer at no cost to you. Complaints Procedure Should you have a complaint regarding any product or service that we have provided, please in the first instance contact us directly by telephone on 01752 893414 or alternatively if you would prefer to put your complaint in writing please email us at or by post to : Stowfords, 17-19 Erme Court, Leonards Road, Ivybridge, PL21 0SZ.

Commercial/Public Sector Customers

If you are a business or if the goods are used wholly or in part for business purposes we shall not be liable to you for any business loss including loss of profits (whether direct or indirect) business data, revenue, goodwill, or incidental, or consequential loss that you may suffer as a result of the purchase of goods from us. Any other liability shall be limited to the price paid for the goods.

We do not exclude our liability for fraud or for death or personal injury. Returns are subject to a 15% handling fee.

If you have a credit account with us, payment is due 30 days after the date of our invoice and we may charge interest for late payment calculated daily at 4% above Bank of England base rate both before and after judgment.

For Internet and Telephone Sales
