Making a Purchase
Please start by contacting us with your requirements. If you are unsure of anything or just want yurt advice then please either call or email and we’ll be more than happy to discuss things and to give any advice. When you know what you want we can draw up an estimate and this will give you details on what we’ve previously discussed. If you are unsure of colour, we can send you some colour samples so please ask. Please check the itemised quote so we get your order right from the start.
We’ll let you know when we expect to have your yurt finished and this is usually around 6 – 8 weeks from when the deposit is paid. But please bear in mind that sometimes unforeseen circumstances may alter the delivery date. We will always communicate with you and let you know about work in progress. We require a deposit, normally about 25% of the final figure and once this is paid (normally by BACS) then your order is secured and we’ll start making your yurt! The remaining balance is due on or before delivery, to be paid by BACS. You will find our BACS details on the invoice we send out to you via email.
Once you have paid your deposit you are agreeing to abide by the conditions set out in this document and are entering into a legally binding contract between yourself and Ben Lawless of WoodSmoke Yurts.
If you have ordered a yurt that includes felt insulation and / or a liner it is imperative that you first of all allow the yurt to be erected with just the outer Poly Cotton cover. The yurt needs to 'weather' and the rainfall will allow the fibres within the fabric to contract and then become a fully waterproof membrane. It is only once this weathering has taken place that we suggest you add the felt insulation and cotton liner. Failure to allow this process will result in the yurt leaking and causing water damage on the insulation and liner and anything that has been placed within the yurt. If you have any queries regarding this then please contact us directly.
If you Would like to Cancel an Order:
We can give you a full deposit refund if you cancel an order within 5 working days of paying it. Please communicate with us if you have any concerns within this time. If we have already started making the yurt and you can no longer afford to pay for it, please first communicate with us about your concerns, we may be able to offer an instalment plan. As a last resort if you no longer want the yurt then unfortunately we cannot return your deposit.
