Terms and Conditions

Delivery Information
The Mexican Rug Company (UK) Ltd. aims to deliver your goods to anywhere in the UK within 7 working days of receiving your order. It is possible that this may take longer due to circumstances beyond our control. If for any reason part, or all, of your order cannot be fulfilled within this time, we will contact you as soon as possible with an expected delivery date.

We offer free delivery within the UK Mainland only. This is based on our standard delivery service. If you require delivery to any other destination then please contact us. Guaranteed next day delivery may be possible in special circumstances but may also incur additional costs.

Overseas Orders
Delivery times for overseas orders will take longer than UK mainland deliveries, due to the distance involved and additional packaging requirements. Should we be unable to ship your order within our usual time-scale, we will contact you to discuss the matter. Cost of such deliveries to be determined individually according to size of order and destination.

Orders for products not in stock.
In the unlikely eventuality that an item you have ordered is out of stock, we will contact you by email or telephone with the option to cancel or change the item. We endeavour to fulfil all orders as quickly as possible. However, the hand-crafted nature and exclusivity of our products, and their country of origin, means that certain ranges take time to re-stock. We will naturally keep you fully informed on the progress of your selected item(s).

Special Commissions
If you have placed an order for a specially commissioned item made to your own specific requirements (and not available from our standard stock) then we will not be able to deliver the goods within our usual 7 day period. We will discuss this with you when you place your order. A deposit or payment in full will be required for all special commissions.

At present we only accept online orders via PAYPAL using credit or debit cards. PAYPAL take responsibility for capturing and storing card details on their secure servers and always ensure that this information is held with the very high levels of security you would expect from a major financial services company.

Please note that we do not process payment for orders until we have the stock or the order is despatched to you and until this point you may cancel the service for delivery of your goods by next day delivery should this have been requested. If you do cancel the next day delivery service we will, unless you also cancel your order for the goods, deliver the goods using our standard delivery service as set out above.
