Trading with Coffee Perfection
At Coffee Perfection our passion is to create a perfect cup of coffee. We use our passion combined with our expertise and knowledge to provide our customers with the highest quality products and industry leading customer service. We have a programme in operation of continual improvement of our internal procedures to make certain that we are offering the best customer service and to ensure that we are operating as efficiently as possible. Some of these procedures have a direct bearing on how we conduct business with our clients, and we would like to draw your attention to the following information which we trust will be of assistance to you.
APPLICATION FOR NEW ACCOUNT
Your account manager will furnish you with a welcome pack which contains account application forms, direct debit mandate form and information on Coffee Perfection products and services. Once the fully completed application and direct debt forms have been received by our accounts team, the process normally takes 48 hours for a new account to be set up on our business system. As soon as the account is set up you will be contacted by your account manager and at that point we will be in a position to accept your orders.
Normal business hours are:
Monday to Thursday: 8.30am – 5.30pm
Fridays: 8.30am – 5.00pm
Bank Holidays: Closed.
Our standard payment terms are by direct debit unless you have a prior agreement. Please ensure that these terms are observed in order to ensure continuity of supply.
Where payment cannot be collected by direct debit on the assigned day of the month, the account will be put on stop and future orders will not be dispatched until the outstanding amount is paid. We will endeavour to contact you by phone to ascertain the reason for non-payment prior to the account going on stop.
QUOTATION REQUESTS TERMS
Where we receive a quotation request for standard products and services, we will endeavour to return a quotation to you within 24 hours. For non-standard or special manufactured material, we will endeavour to return our quotation or request for additional information within 72 hours.
