If your shipment has been damaged, insurance compensation &/or free replacement units or free replacement parts are available, please see the Damage & Defects section below.
- 18. Shipping: Although Horizon Custom Homes does stock many items in our warehouse in MS, for reason of cost, location, constraint of time, or availability products may be shipped from our warehouse or dropshipped from different locations directly from a manufacturer, distributor, supplier, importer, affiliate/associate, fulfillment center, another retailer, etc. Horizon Custom Homes is an affiliate/associate of Amazon.com & a member of their FBA program. Dropshipping shipments is a common industry business practice which the buyer hereby agrees to.
- 19. Products: Horizon Custom Homes interior design group's shopping service does its best to show and describe all models based on the manufacturers' specifications, factory stock photos, research, & decades of professional experience within the furniture industry, but unfortunately we can not guarantee customer's satisfaction. Manufacturers' specifications such as weights & dimensions do change without notification for which we are not responsible for. Some assembly may be required.
- 20. Substitutes: In all cases, the buyer will receive the exact product ordered, shown, & described on this or other related website (eBay, Blujay, etc). No substitutes will be shipped unless requested by the buyer. On occasion manufacturers do update/change their products without notification, which Horizon Custom Homes is not responsible for. Unfortunately, our company can not guarantee customer's satisfaction.
- 21. Construction Quality: We represent a wide variety of models & have found that the lesser expensive models often are not of the same quality as the more expensive models. This is a general statement to help consumers understand the variations of the products available. Please see our Technical Information page for more information: Tech Info. You can also contact us via our Contact Us form with questions regarding specific models' construction techniques & materials.
- 22. Assembly: Some or full assembly of certain models of furniture or accessories may be required. Please email us the model number(s) via our Contact Us form & our customer service staff will do their best to describe any if needed assembly required.
- 23. Damage & Defects: Horizon Custom Homes is a dealer, retailer, & a reseller, not a manufacturer, therefore not responsible for manufacturing defects (warranty issue) or manufacturers' packing materials (warranty &/or shipping insurance issue). When your order is delivered, make sure to carefully inspect it for any damage or defects. If you do notice any damage or defects, you must note them on the shipping receipt and refuse the delivery for freight insurance purposes. All damage or defects must be claimed within within 7 days of delivery. Free replacement units & parts are often, but not always, available through the manufacturer, please see your owner's manual for contact information. Please email or call the contact information to order free replacement parts. If you would like some help thru this process, please email us & we will try to advise. Horizon Custom Homes is not responsible for manufacturer's defects, freight damage or the manufacturers' shipping/packing materials or damage to a product due to such.
- 24. Insurance: All items shipped are insured at no extra charge.
For models delivered by UPS, FedEx, & DHL: To make an insurance claim, the buyer must contact the freight company that delivered the item within 7 days of receipt. This is not the responsibility of Horizon Custom Homes or our suppliers (if dropshipped directly). The insurance claim process is often long & difficult, so we strongly recommend ordering free replacement parts (if available) via the contact information in the included paperwork to expedite the resolution of the problem.
For large models delivered by truck freight lines: When your order is delivered, you must carefully inspect it for any damage or defects. It is critical that you must inspect the shipment for damage or defects before you accept/sign for the delivery, then you must note the problems on the shipping receipt, and then refuse the delivery for the freight insurance purposes. If you accept/sign for a damaged shipment this voids the insurance & your claim to any restitution &/or reimbursement.

- 26. Colors & Finishes: We have done our best to display as accurately as possible the colors of the products shown on this website. However, because the colors you see will depend on your monitor & its settings, we cannot guarantee that your monitor's display of a color will be exact. We recommend setting your monitor to its default settings for the best reproduction. Generally our company uses manufacturer supplied "stock" photos of their products. We are not responsible for finish differences from the depicted finishes in the photos. If you are in need of exact matching models, please email us with the model numbers & we will be happy to help.
- 27. Errors: We apologize, but Horizon Custom Homes is not responsible for typographical or technical errors on our website or in our auctions (eBay, Blujay, etc). Although we strive for accuracy in all of our descriptions, we apologize but errors still do occur on very rare occasion. All specifications are the published manufacturers' specifications data.
- 28. Quality Control: Although our company is concerned with quality control of the products we represent, we cannot guarantee customer satisfaction. Outdoor furniture is manufactured to be rustic, so imperfections in the wood (scratches, dips, grains, knots, color variations, discolorations, roughness, nicks, etc) are normal. In all wood furniture (indoor or outdoor), two of the same model or within a family of models may not match perfectly because of wood variations. Sealed & stained finishes may have small imperfections & may be unfinished on unseen parts of the piece (back, bottom, underside, inside drawers, etc). Often solid wood models will have non-solid backing materials. Some assembly may be required.
- 29. Prices: All prices are fixed & agreed upon by the buyer at the time of purchase. We do not offer a price guarantee, professional discounts, combined shipping discounts, quantity discounts, partial refunds, etc. We strongly recommend comparison shopping & research before making your purchase.
- 30. Unauthorized Returns: Return shipments are not accepted without an official R.A. (Return Authorization) being issued by Horizon Custom Homes. Unauthorized returns are nonrefundable & are refused to be returned to sender. Horizon Custom Homes is not responsible for returns directly to a supplier without an official Horizon Custom Homes Return Authorization being issued in advance to the buyer.
- 31. Restocking: In the event of a shipment is unsuccessfully delivered (incorrect shipping information, refusal of delivery, unauthorized returns, multiple unsuccessful delivery attempts, etc.), the original shipping costs are non-refundable, the buyer is responsible for return shipping & insurance costs. The buyer will also incur is a minimum of a 20% restocking charge based on the sold price of the product, not including shipping costs.
- 32. Breach of Contract: If for any reason payment is revoked or canceled while the buyer retains the product, Horizon Custom Homes Inc. will file charges with the buyer's local police department for Theft and Fraud under the Criminal Theft Act of 1978. A formal criminal investigation will be enacted as well as normal criminal prosecution will be pursued including 25% garnishing of wages until the debt is paid in full plus a 20% nonpayment penalty surcharge and the buyer will be held responsible for all litigation costs. The debt will also be turned over to a national collection agency which will reflect on the buyer's credit record for seven (7) years.
- 33. Contract: A purchase is an electronic signature & legally binding contractual agreement to these published terms of sale in accordance to the Federal laws of the United States of America, the laws of the state of Mississippi as well as in accordance with the policies of the Better Business Bureau, Paypal, VeriSign, eBay, ePublic-Eye, and SquareTrade.
