FAQs

What does made to order or bespoke mean?

"Made To Order" or "Bespoke" Products will be described as such on the website, they are items which are not currently in stock and will be ordered directly from the supplier/manufacturer to fulfill your order. We would ask that you check the dimensions of the product carefully and think about colour choices as due to the fact that these items are ordered specifically for you they cannot be cancelled or returned.

 

How long does it take to receive my items?

Items "in stock" are deemed to be available and will be packaged and shipped within 5-7 working days. See the full Barbed shipping terms and conditions.

 

 

What if I order a product that is in stock and a product that is made to order?

If you order an item that is made to order and has a lead time, the item instock will be allocated to you and your complete order will be dispatched to you once everything is available for delivery. Your order only includes one delivery so if you urgently require something that is in stock you can process a sale with the click and collect option, and you can collect your item within 24 hours.

 

Why do Fermob products have such a long lead time? 

Here at Barbed we carry a large stock holding of Fermob products, however with almost 50 different collections, available in 24 different colours the sheer volume of products is huge. Therefore many products are "Made to Order" and have an approximate 6 week lead time. A delay in lead time does not warrant cancellation, by purchasing from Barbed you agree to our terms and conditions of sale. The following guide gives you an idea of what takes place in the Made to Order process, however please be aware that lead times can vary; sometimes there are production or transport issues which are outside of our control. In any instance of delay Barbed will communicate this directly to you.
