For these items we can arrange to despatch your furniture any week day ( Monday to Friday ) on a overnight delivery service (this service carries a £5.00 *surcharge) so you will normally receive it the very next working day.

How will my furniture arrive ?
Your furniture will arrive fully boxed and very well wrapped to protect it during transportation. Your items will normally be delivered by our couriers who are one of the UK's largest and most successful quick delivery parcel networks. We have now been dealing with this company for many years and they have proved to be the most realiable. In order for us to provide a low cost delivery service heavy items will require your assistance on delivery. This information is normally displayed in the product description.
What happens if some of my furniture is damaged or parts are missing ?
If you receive your furniture and there is any damage, defect or missing parts then we can simply provide you with that particular component. In most circumstances there is no need for the whole item to be replaced. Most of the products supplied are home assembly products; this makes it easy for us to send out the necessary component immediately either from ourselves or the manufacturer. This process allows a faster and simpler solution to the problem. In the unlikely event that we are unable to supply the correct component then a full replacement product will be dispatched and the damaged one collected at no cost.
Do you supply a warranty ?
All our products are supplied with a 12 month manufacturer`s warranty, provided that the manufacturer`s care and maintenance instructions have been followed. All timescales with respect to these warranties are calculated from the date of receipt of goods.
Are there any additional charges to add to your prices shown ?
All our prices shown are inclusive of any VAT and any delivery charges for mainland UK are shown clearly within the product descriptions, are capped to a maximum for your area and shown within the checkout shopping cart.
Do you provide help with the assembly of your flat pack furniture ?
Please feel free to contact us if you require any help or information with the assembly of your furniture. Because of the distance of most deliveries we, unfortunately, cannot always provide a service throughout the whole country to assemble it for you. You could however contact someone who specialises in the assembly of flat pack furniture. We do assemble our products but only within certain parts of the North West. Please check with us first if you live within this area for a competitive price or take a look here Furniture Assembled to see our blog showing a example of our work.
I need to see the finish of your furniture. Can you supply a wood sample ?
Yes. For most of our furniture we can post a small wood sample if you need to compare the finish with other furniture you may already have. You can order one for many of our ranges from our shopping cart or just email us with your details, telephone number and the name of the furniture you require a sample for. We will then contact you to confirm when we can post it to you and to charge a small fee of £2.00 to cover cost of postage and administration.
Are your prices really the best ?
Yes. When comparing prices we feel we are providing some of the most competitive prices around for furniture of this quality and style. We also provide a high level of service to all our customers. If you also take into account the extra savings made by shopping online ie no driving around, searching, arranging collection / delivery and the convenience of having the items delivered to your door at a very low delivery costs, then we are sure you will agree this has to make purchasing our furniture the best value anywhere in the UK.
