ACCEPTANCE OF YOUR ORDER
Please note that completion of the online checkout process does not constitute our acceptance of your order. Our acceptance of your order will take place only when we dispatch the goods that you ordered from us. We will notify you by email as soon as possible to confirm that we have received your order.
All products that you order through the Website will remain the property of The Boot Room until we have received payment in full from you for those products.
Our checkout takes you directly to the PayPal secure server. We do not see any of your financial details. We receive an email from PayPal confirming your payment. This email confirms the payment, the product ordered and your billing and delivery details.
Should you wish to pay via BACS transfer or cheque, please note that goods will not be despatched until the payment has cleared through our bank.
If for any reason we cannot supply you with the product you ordered, we will inform you either by telephone or email. If you have already paid for the product we will refund you in full.
BESPOKE/MADE TO MEASURE SERVICE
The Boot Room takes no responsibility for inaccurate measurements taken by the customer. If it’s proven that the factory made an error then we offer to get another pair made for you.
Please note that as these boots will be made to your measurements, modification and/or cancellation will not be accepted once production has commenced. If you wish to cancel or change your bespoke order you must notify us within 48 hours after placing the order. If you cancel within the 48 hours, prior to production commencing, your deposit will be refunded in full. Otherwise, as this is classed as a bespoke, made to measure service, this is therefore exempt from the Distance Selling Regulations and we will therefore retain payment received for the order.
The Made to Measure fee is GBP £100 on top of the standard boot price.
Bespoke/Made to measure items normally take about 6 – 8 weeks, but can take up to 12 weeks during busy periods. Please also note that the factory in Spain is closed for the month of August.
The footbed of the boot is not made to measure. The foot sizes are all to standard sizes and we can also get half sizes made. Only the leg measurements and height of the boot are made specifically to the customers requirements. Please note that boots cannot be made to your exact leg measurements as you would never fit your foot in it, in particular the ankle area needs some extra space for you to walk comfortably and to be able to drop your heels when riding.
For details of our delivery charges please see shipping and returns.
Delivery will be to the UK or international address as specified in your order. If your delivery is outside of the UK there may be import duties/taxes which you must meet plus any additional charges which may arise for Customs clearance. These charges are the responsibility of the customer.
All risk in the products you order (including risk of loss and/or damage to the products) shall pass to you when they are delivered to the delivery address specified in your order.
We shall be under no liability for any delay or failure to deliver products if the delay or failure is wholly or partly caused by circumstances beyond our control.
Return postage is to be paid by the customer, if the item is being exchanged outgoing postage will be paid by The Boot Room.
Due to customs, legal, regulatory and certain practical restrictions applicable to orders placed for international delivery, some of our products may not be available for delivery to certain destinations outside the UK. The Boot Room reserves the right to define what can and cannot be delivered to which destination.
Payment – Purchases will be made in pounds Sterling. International credit card providers or banks will determine the exchange rate and may add an additional processing or administration charge in relation to such payment which international credit card holders will be liable to pay.
The Boot Room products are sold on a delivery duty unpaid basis. The recipient may have to pay import duty or a formal customs entry fee prior to or on delivery. Additional taxes, fees or levies may apply according to local legislation and customers are required to check these details before placing an order for international delivery.
Occasionally, the supply of your product(s) may be delayed or prevented for reasons beyond our control – for example, material shortages, import delays or higher than anticipated demand. Where this is the case, we will, of course, make every effort to keep you informed but shall be under no liability to you for such delay or failure.
All shipping costs for International items are to be paid by the customer including return and outgoing exchange shipping, along with any taxes/import duties.
If the goods need to be returned or exchanged all postage costs are the responsibility of the customer. The parcel must be marked ‘RETURNS’ otherwise we will be charged the import duty. If ´RETURNS´ is not stated on the parcel then the import duty will be deducted from your refund.
We offer a full refund within 30 days (compliant with the Consumer Rights Act 2015) of receipt by customer, provided the goods are returned to us unused and in their original packaging. This refund will not include any postage costs incurred by the customer.
Please note that bespoke made to measure boots are non refundable as these boots have been made for you to your measurements, you do not have the right for a refund or exchange if unsuitable or you change your mind. As stated previously, The Boot Room is not responsible for incorrect measurements supplied by you. You do not have the right to return your item if you have provided incorrect measurements.
If you have an issue with the fit of a custom made boot we will endeavour to assist you but we do not offer refunds or exchanges.
Exchanges are permitted within 30 days, provided the goods are returned unused and in original packaging. The Boot Room does not cover postage costs for returned items but will cover the postage costs on exchanging a product.
Please return items in their original packaging in a mailing bag. Please do not seal and write on the actual boot box.
All of our boots are handcrafted by Master Craftsmen using the finest quality leathers and suedes. They have a manufacturing guarantee of one year. This is not a guarantee against normal wear and tear and neither is it for a product that has been damaged by misuse, accident, or unauthorised repairs. If you believe you have purchased a defective product please contact us as soon as possible.
