a) Following any site inspection and measure, where applicable, referred to in clause 3 and any subsequent agreement to vary the Product and Price as referred to in clause 3 (c), Home Design Co. will present a range of delivery dates for you to choose from which will be between 1 to 8 weeks from the date of agreement.

b) We will do all that we can to meet the Delivery Date, however these are only estimates. Home Design Co. will not be liable for any damage or loss caused by delays in delivery. If something beyond our control delays production of the Product, we will notify you and provide a new Delivery Date.
