General Terms and Conditions of Sale

GENERAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS OF SALE (Last Updated: November 2018)
Applies to all sales

These General Terms and Conditions (“Terms”) together with the initial sales order, final sales order and any attachments thereto (“Order,” and collectively with the Terms,“Agreement”) are a legally binding agreement by and between you the purchaser (“Customer,” “you,” “I” and their derivatives) and the Next Day Blinds Corporation (“Next Day Blinds,” “we,” “our” and their derivatives). This Agreement is effective when you sign the Order, or when you submit your Order through our website.

Custom Product Ordering

It’s custom built for you, so no cancellations or returns. Each of your window coverings is custom made to fit properly on only the window for which it is intended. Once your measurements are confirmed, your order is immediately sent to our local factory and the manufacturing process begins. We custom build every window covering to each customer’s selection and the exact specification of each window. Except for any limited rights expressly described in or with this Agreement, orders may not be changed or cancelled or returned.

You select your product, style and color. While we will work hard to help you select the correct product and application for your home, you are responsible for the final selection of product, style, and color. Slight variations in color, grain or texture are normal and should be expected with wood, woven wood and fabrics.

If we make a mistake we’ll fix it! We will either repair or replace any window covering purchased from Next Day Blinds that is defective or does not match the specifications of your order.

If you make a measuring mistake, contact us within 14 days of receiving your order. We will remake your blind or shade at no cost to you. You are responsible for any increase in price between your new and original product, or if the dimensions of the new product now make it oversize (greater than 94” wide) the oversize shipping charge will apply. (Limit of 5 free remakes per household per lifetime. The remake must be same product, lift system and fabric/color – only a change in dimension is allowed.)

Payment

Due to the custom nature of our product, for online or showroom pickup orders, your credit card will be charged for the full amount of your order when you submit it.

Backorders

Unfortunately, our suppliers are at times out of stock of a fabric or component which causes us to have to delay the production of an order. This will cause us to put a product on backorder. We will contact you if your order contains a product that is on backorder. In this situation, you can choose a different selection, wait for the product/fabric to be in stock, or cancel the item from your order.You will be responsible for any additional amount due to selecting a different color, fabric, or product. And, if you choose to cancel the backordered item, we will refund you.

Shipping Damage

In the unfortunate situation that your product is damaged by the shipping carrier while in transit, we will remake your product at no charge to you. You must notify us within 14 days of receiving your order if there is any damage due to shipping.
