Waste Management

Please note that we do not have a waste removal licence and are not registered to remove any waste generated from the installation of the Smart Storage unit. However, we will remove any rubbish we bring to site, and will leave any remaining debris in a neat manner to be later disposed of by yourself.

 

Please Note: 

- Product colours may not accurately display on your monitor or screen. In addition, images of storage units are for reference only. Your storage unit type, door width, skirting and architrave may vary depending on the angle of your staircase and space available. Tallboy sections are not lined out unless previously agreed with your sales person. 

- Please ensure that children or minors are not left unsupervised in the home while the under stairs storage or attic storage units are being installed. 

 

Completion of the Installation and Final Payment

On completion of the installation, the outstanding balance of the agreed price will be debited from the credit card or debit card provided. A deposit has previously been processed from the credit card or debit card provided when placing the order. The outstanding balance is set up to be paid in full on the next working day following the installation of the unit. Please Note: working days may vary slightly between the UK and Ireland depending on public holiday dates.

 

Changing your Method of Payment

Should you wish to use an alternative payment method, please contact our Accounts Department.

Any claim for a contra-charge or discount must be submitted, in full, in writing to Smart Storage with full evidence, including, where applicable, photos, invoices, proof of payment and detailed breakdown of costs.

Should the parties be unable to agree on a resolution to the dispute, then the dispute must go to conciliation with an agreed appointed concilitor. The decision of the concilitor is final.

This dispute resolution procedure gives both parties specific legal rights, and you may also have other legal rights which vary from state to state under consumer protection law. This process neither impedes nor takes precedent to your consumer rights.
