Probuildcentre.com (PbC) aims to provide you, the Customer, with excellent service and products at a competitive price.
PbC’s main emphasis is to provide a seamless, as is reasonably possible, co-ordinated service from initial concept through to a finished or turnkey product. We work very closely with several expert companies, specialising in each aspect of the above, as such, any liability lies with the partner. However, PbC will use its best endeavours to resolve any problems that may arise. The word “Company” refers to PbC or the partner as is relevant.
PbC wishes to draw your attention to these key issues:
1. PbC is located at Probuild House, 107 Station Road East, Oxted, Surrey RH8 0AX and includes its staff, agents and/or sub-contractors.
2. Estimates and quotations are valid for 60 days, unless otherwise stated and shall include VAT where applicable. Occasionally, PbC’s documents may contain errors or omissions, although they always take care to avoid such. However, the Customer shall not be entitled to rely on such, which shall be corrected by PbC without liability.
3. Where applicable, whilst every effort will be made to disturb décor as little as possible during any works, the Company will not be responsible for remedial costs. Decoration will not be included unless specifically mentioned.
