Care of Products and Responsibility on Delivery

Metal Products Direct will ensure the product in transit up to the point of delivery only. If you are unable or unwilling for any reason to take delivery of products on the delivery date advised to you, and have not given at least 48 hours’ notice before such date, or if we have been unable to deliver on this date because of problems with access to the delivery address, we may at our discretion store the products at your risk and charge the storage costs and any additional costs incurred as a result of failed delivery and any further attempt to deliver. .
