What happens if I decide to make changes after I have ordered my kitchen, paid my deposit or work has begun?
A:If you decide to make changes after you have ordered your kitchen or a deposit has been paid then we will ensure, where possible, to make these changes during our technical survey. Any additional charges or vice-versa, if applicable, will be added or subtracted to the contract price at that stage and balances will be amended.
Once the technical survey is complete, the contract is finalised and that is the cut off point for any changes.
Extra costs may be incurred if you change your mind after the survey date or after your kitchen is delivered or at any time during the installation.
A: Mastercraft Kitchens offer a removal service, if required and we can arrange to dispose of your old kitchen and any packaging for you. This service includes a 4 ton skip which will be delivered to your house on a specified site. You may organise your own rubbish removal if you choose to; please note that this service only allows for the supply of one 4 ton skip per kitchen installation. We are unable to remove rubbish by any other means. Any additional skips will be charged accordingly.
Some of the old white goods may need to be removed by the local council if they contain CFC gases.
A: Your new kitchen design will be presented and discussed with you during your kitchen design consultation. However, only once your kitchen deposit is paid may an itemised and dimensioned CAD drawing of your floor plan be provided to you. This will usually be sent by E-mail or post. Mastercraft Kitchens will also provide you with several 3 dimensional views of your new kitchen for you to approve, prior to technical survey, at your leisure. Any changes to the design can be made without penalty up until the completion of the technical survey. Technical surveys are usually carried out one to three weeks before the agreed delivery date.
A: Mastercraft Kitchens will try to accommodate you should you need to delay your kitchen installation. There is generally a lead time with all kitchen installations therefore Mastercraft Kitchens will endeavour to book you in on our first subsequent available kitchen installation date. Rest assured, Mastercraft Kitchens have your best interests at heart and will do whatever we can to ensure minimum disruption.
A: Yes – these are provided by the appliance manufacturer. All the associated paperwork will be left within your kitchen during your kitchen installation. Please remember to register each individual warranty for each of your new appliances, including sinks and taps within one month of your kitchen’s delivery date. If you are asked for proof of purchase, your contract number should be given. Any faults found on your appliances, sinks and taps after delivery will mean the appliances will either be replaced or repaired under the terms of the manufacturer’s warranty. This does not effect your statutory rights as a consumer. Mastercraft Kitchens or any other engineer, unless otherwise appointed by the manufacturer, cannot attempt to repair any appliance, sink or tap as this will deem any warranty with your manufacturer invalid.
A: Yes – Our Mastercraft Kitchens Warranty provides protection for you, in respect of the cost of rectifying both workmanship and product defects.
This warranty is split into two sections. The installation warranty section of cover runs for a period of 12 months from the completion of your kitchen and provides protection for you in the event that work is required to rectify faulty workmanship, originally carried out by Mastercraft Kitchens fitters.
The second section warranty period is for Mastercraft manufactured products, such as doors, cabinets and furniture fittings and this runs for a period of 60 months from the delivery of your kitchen. This provides protection for you in the unlikely event that a manufacturing defect should occur. Wear and tear conditions apply and these conditions are detailed on your warranty certificate, supplied on completion.
