Normal Lead Time

Approximately 4 weeks from receipt of all required materials.  Products will be made to the specification detailed in the Contract.  


Flame Retardant Products:  Certification will be provided by the Seller at the request of the Customer.


Fitting:  Where agreed fitting will be conducted by Kootenay Interiors or an Agent of Kootenay Interiors. If the site is not ready on the pre-arranged fitting date, extra charges for a revisit may be incurred.


Delivery & Fitting:  Any dates quoted for delivery or fitting of Goods are approximate only and the Seller shall not be liable for any delay in delivery or fitting of the Goods howsoever caused. Time for delivery shall not be the essence unless previously agreed by the Seller in writing. The Goods may be delivered by the Seller in advance of the quoted delivery date upon giving reasonable notice to the Customer.


Damages:  If Goods received by the Customer are damaged the Customer is to call the Seller immediately at 250-353-2993 and the problem will be attended to as soon as possible (normally within 48 hours). The Customer should take a photograph of the damage and report this within 24 hours after delivery.


Payment:  Payment terms will be included in the quotation. In the absence of any specific reference to payment terms in the quotation, 50% down payment for materials is required on acceptance of the quotation and payment in full is due on delivery of the goods.  If the Customer fails to make any payment on the due date then, without prejudice to any other right or remedy available to the Seller, the Seller shall be entitled to charge the Customer interest (both before and after any judgment) on the amount unpaid, at the rate of 5 percentage points above Bank of Canada base rate until payment in full is made (such interest to be due on a daily basis).


Cancellation:  No order placed by the Customer that has been accepted by the Seller may be cancelled by the Customer except with the agreement in writing of the Seller and on terms that the Customer shall indemnify the Seller in full against all loss (including loss of profit), costs (including the cost of all labour and materials used), damages, charges and expenses incurred by the Seller as a result of cancellation.


Kootenay Interiors holds the right to cancel the supply of goods if they are unable to offer the full service required. This includes inaccurate client measurements, stock non-availability and ability to arrange date of fitting. A full refund will be given less any check measuring costs, which are non-refundable; Measurements will be supplied to client in this instance.


Cancellation will also be made if the clients’ measurements are significantly different to those provided by the Customer before check measure and the client is not in agreement to proceed.


Title of Goods:  Whilst the risk in the Goods passes to the Customer on delivery to the Customer’s premises the title of Goods remains the property of the Seller until full payment has been received and cleared on all Outstanding invoices. The Seller reserves the right, at any time, to repossess any Goods for which full payment has not been received. Until title passes, the Customer will hold the Goods upon trust for the Seller, keeping the Goods separate from all other products and label them so they can at all times be identified as the property of the Seller .


Unforeseen Circumstances:  The Seller shall not be liable for any delay or failure to perform any of its obligations if the delay or failure results from events or circumstances outside its reasonable control, including but not limited to acts of God, strikes, lock outs, accidents, war, fire, breakdown of plant or machinery or shortage or unavailability of raw materials from a natural source of supply and the Seller shall be entitled to a reasonable extension of its obligations. If the delay persists for such time, as the Seller considers unreasonable, it may without liability on its part, terminate the contract or any part of it.
