ACD® Delivery conditions

  1. The delivery
    1. 1 Date of delivery

The transporter will contact the end consumer a few days before the delivery to determine a delivery date.
If the delivery is postponed after an order has been placed, an additional cost of 60 Euro will be charged.
As from the 5th week of this delay, this amount will be increased by 2 Euro per day.
++ If the delivery is refused, a fee of € 250 will be charged.
++ Always ensure that someone is present at the time of delivery. If no one is present at the time of delivery (despite the agreement made), a cost of € 250 will be charged.
++ We request that you unpack your goods and check them thoroughly within 2 months after delivery.
Make use of your manual in this regard.
Every request, comment or complaint will be admissible for up to 2 months after the actual delivery.

2. Delivery address

++ The delivery address must be accessible for heavy goods vehicles.
(truck with max dimensions: W 2,50 m x H 4,10 m x L 18,70 m, with tail-lift/release valve).
++ If the delivery address is not accessible for heavy goods vehicles, please stipulate this in advance on the order form. If this has not been reported in advance, a fixed-rate amount of € 250 will be charged.
++ Cumbersome accessibility? ACD® has worked out a solution for this.
A small truck (smaller than the above dimensions) > € 150

3. Practical information on delivery

++ The boxes with the frame of the greenhouse are unloaded manually. The glass crate is unloaded with a pallet.
++ The goods are delivered on the pavement as standard.

4. Storage of the greenhouse

++ Keep the delivery dry and protected. If the packaging is exposed to rain and lots of sun, this can cause irreparable damage
to the greenhouse (windows stick together, stains on the glass, glue residue…)

5. Measurements and weight of the promotion models

++ For more information about the measurements & weight of boxes and glass crate: visit the website www.acd.eu

6. Damage or incorrect components upon delivery

++ Always take delivery of the goods (even if they are damaged).
++ Visible damage to the packaging and/or the goods must be noted immediately and described in detail on the transporter’s delivery note. In other words, do not only write “Subject to quantity and condition”, but, be more specific, for example: “We see broken windows in the glass crate”. Invisible damage or non-compliant delivery must be reported as soon as possible (maximum up to two months after delivery). Contact our after-sales service via a written notification (aftersales@acd.eu) and send the following items for smooth handling:
Clear description of the error (use your manual or glass plan and indicate)
Proof of purchase
Photos in case of damage or a deviating product
Reference number of your shipment (VP19_xxxx)
