All prices quoted are net of VAT. We make every effort to keep the prices on our website up to date, however any changes to said prices are subject to change without notice. The prices on the website supersede any other sources.
If a buyer wishes to apply for an additional discount, we require a minimum purchase of £250+VAT of one particular item (not a variety across a family code) to be made. We will then consider offering an additional discount based on the overall quantity of purchased product code. If a discount is offered, we require for the payment to be made in one transaction (unless we require a deposit, then we will ask for 20% of the overall value to be paid in advance) and the order to be delivered in full to one address specified by the buyer.
All special discount offers are valid for 30 days only from the issue date.
We reserve the right to request a 20% non-refundable deposit for any special orders placed with us. The delivery time-scales for special orders are agreed individually at the point of sale and can be different to the standard delivery time-scales.
If a buyer cancels an order after it has been confirmed and the deposit has been paid, Agnes + Cat reserves the right not to refund the deposit as it is required to cover the administration costs.
Order processing takes place Monday -Friday, 8am - 4:30pm, excluding bank holidays. The buyer will receive their final invoice in the attachment of the Dispatch confirmation email .
Please note, that we have a minimum order value of £75 before carriage and VAT.

The email will be sent to the email address registered on the buyer’s account.
The buyer is obliged to check their confirmation email and inform us as soon as possible if any errors have been made.
(NB: Sometimes the email confirmations may be filtered as SPAM so please always check the junk/ spam box for these).
Our contact details and office hours are available here:

If you wish to take your order with you the same day, we recommend placing the order in time for it to reach our warehouse picking queue before 3pm.
If the showroom order is placed after that time, we will do our best to pick it the same day, however this is not always possible (especially during extra busy periods: September – December), so please be aware we may ask you to come back for the order the next day or offer a courier service at our flat rate of £7.50+VAT for UK Mainland (free for orders over 175+VAT).

Courier deliveries take place Monday-Friday, 7.30am - 5.30pm (excluding bank holidays).

If special instructions are provided post-dispatch of the order, we cannot guarantee the courier will receive them in time, which may delay the delivery.
The courier will attempt the delivery on two consecutive business days. If the delivery fails both times, the goods will be returned to the local depot or your local pick-up shop. Please contact us or follow the instructions on your missed-delivery card to complete the delivery. Should we need to schedule a re-delivery at this stage, Agnes + Cat reserves the right to issue a redelivery charge of £7.50+VAT per consignment.
The courier system also offers an option for the order to be delivered to a a pick-up shop local to the delivery address. This option is accessible via the courier's automated email/ text message sent to the customer upon dispatch. Once a pick-up shop option is selected this cannot be cancelled and the order will be delivered to the requested location. The order cannot be re-delivered to an alternative address from there. It must be collected by the customer. The collection will be successful if the customer can provide a photo ID and a proof of address - the names and addresses must match the details on the delivery label on the parcel as otherwise the order will not be released.
Pick-up shops usually hold orders for 5 days before they are returned to the sender. Should an unauthorised return take place and/ or a redelivery is requested, Agnes + Cat may charge return/ redelivery fee.
7.2 Pallet Deliveries
Agnes + Cat reserves the right to determine the mode of delivery. This means, that on occasion an order must be shipped via a pallet freight company. The customer will be advised of this upon dispatch and a delivery date will be agreed then. Commercial pallet deliveries are made on a curb-side basis. The delivery is not timed, however the freight company usually will telephone an hour before the delivery is to take place. If the pallet arrives at the destination and no-one is there, the driver will contact the number provided by the customer and usually wait for around 10 minutes. If they cannot reach the customer, they will contact Agnes + Cat to advise us of this. If a redelivery is booked after the 1st attempt, Agnes + Cat reserves the right to charge a £20+VAT redelivery fee for this service and for any consecutive redelivery on the same consignment.

If the out of stocks goods exceed 20% of your order, we will contact you so that you can choose alternatives. In order to make this process as swift as possible, we advise to always put the most up-to-date contact details on the order.

A refund will be issued for any out of stock items. Refunds are processed within 1-7 days once an order has been invoiced and dispatched.
