The Customer must provide documentary proof (i.e. Utility Invoice, Letterhead etc.), as well as a fully completed trade application which can be found on our website www.bellstocchero.com The Supplier reserves the right to reject any application they feel is not made by a ‘bona fide’ member of the trade or customers who we believe will diminish the products and/or value of the Bell & Stocchero brand.

Prospective customers must declare the full trading name or trading name(s) through which they may potentially trade with us. When opening a trade account, you will automatically be signing up to our e-marketing database and its communications. To opt out of such communications, please notify us by email to email@example.com Bell & Stocchero restricts the number of online only customers retailing its products. New applications from customers without retail premises or existing customers, may be refused a trade account. We aim, but cannot guarantee, to respond to trade applications within 3-5 working days. Should we approve a customer’s trade application, an email will be sent detailing an account reference plus any special trading terms or considerations for that customer. Any special trading terms or considerations given in the account opening email form your contract with us and any dispute must be raised with us immediately by return email. The minimum order quantity for containers is a full 20FT container which contains 28cbm of stock. You must quote your account number on all correspondence with us.
PROTECTION OF CUSTOMERS
We endeavour to protect the area for collections taken by active store-based container customers within a ten-mile radius. We do not protect the area of wholesale customers and all stock deemed to be an accessory is not protected by this rule. Should issues arise with active container customers and the collections taken in a geographical area, Bell & Stocchero reserves the right to withdraw a collection from sale at any point without notice.
We may occasionally alter or slightly change the design of items. We cannot accept these changes as faults. Most of our furniture is handcrafted and therefore sizes are only offered as a guide. We reserve the right to change specification without prior notice.
PAYMENTS & PRICING
We do not take payments online as it is necessary for us to check and assign your order prior to its acceptance. Payments can be made to us by faster payment or BACS. We do not accept cheques or Card Payments. BACS payments are only permissible if funds are cleared by the scheduled payment due date. If an error on pricing is noted, we will inform you of the corrected price. It is the company’s policy to comply with the Code of Practice for traders on price indications issued by the D.T.I. Consumer and Competition Policy Directorate.
We only operate on cleared funds therefore full payment must be made 3 days before a container is scheduled to dock (taking into account any deposits already paid). Until payment is made all goods remain the property of the Supplier. We reserve the right to cancel deliveries if the required funds are not present in adequate time.
We require that all container orders are placed through the website or alternatively submitted by email if access to the website is not possible. On receipt of an order, a confirmation form will be issued detailing the contents of the order and requesting a 20% deposit. Your order will not be placed with the factory until any outstanding deposits have been received. On receiving the 20% deposit, your order will be placed with the factory and any quoted delivery dates will begin from the day your deposit was received. Container deposits are non-refundable. We regret that we are unable to make any amendments to container orders once the deposit has been processed. A minimum order quantity (MOQ) of units per SKU is required. On container ordering a +/- 10% rule applies. To enable the container to be filled to capacity, at the time of loading items can be removed or added up to 10% of the order total. Items will be added or removed proportionately across the order.
Once payment has been received our elected shipping agent will contact you to book your container delivery in at a suitable time and date for both parties. You must take delivery within 7 days of your container arriving into the port. If you are unable to take delivery within this time, demurrage will be incurred. This will be charged at the cost quoted by the shipping line (anything up to £70 per day at time of print). Delivery will be to your given delivery address, unless otherwise stated. Customers who take in containers at their premises must have good road access which facilitates the manoeuvre of a 40FT articulated vehicle to within close proximity of the goods-in entry point. The drivers are unaccompanied and will require full assistance with unloading. On delivery of a container the customer will require bolt croppers to break the container seal. An allocation of 3 hours for a 40ft container and 2 hours for a 20ft container is given for a container to be unloaded. If this is exceeded a charge for vehicle detention is made by the shipping line (approx. £40 per extra hour at time of print). We only deliver goods to the customer’s door or goods in location. We cannot move items inside properties which are not wholly owned by Bell & Stocchero Limited and we are not liable for any damages incurred by our staff carrying stock on customer’s premises. Our staff are not responsible for unboxing or assembling products and they cannot take packaging away. Delivery drivers must not leave their vehicle unattended at any time. All containers transport costs, fees, taxes and duties are included in the goods individual Net prices which are paid by the customer, unless otherwise stated.
In the event that items of furniture on a container are damaged, we require notice within 7 days of the delivery date. Any product damages must be in their original packaging. In order to resolve any damage claim, we require that all customers submit a returns form with clear photographs via email to firstname.lastname@example.org We may send out a Bell & Stocchero Limited representative to further assess damages if we feel it is necessary. We resolve damage claims by offering an exchange, part credit or full credit. We do not offer cash refunds.
The Supplier is unable to accept returns for items that have not been delivered by Bell & Stocchero Limited. The Supplier will not be held responsible for any damages incurred via any third-party carrier/couriers. When the decision to refund credit to you has been made, we will issue you with a credit note which will be applied to your account.

These characteristics help to enhance the furniture’s beauty and charm.
