What time will my delivery arrive?

We offer an AM or PM delivery option with our delivery vehicles operating Monday – Friday. Once your item has arrived in our warehouse, we will contact you  to arrange a suitable date.

What is your returns procedure?

You can cancel non custom-made furniture by notifying us in writing, before delivery or within 14 working days beginning with the day after the date of delivery.

If you wish to return your goods it is your responsibility to take good care of the furniture. You will be the owner of the furniture once it has been delivered to you and you are liable for any loss or damage during this time. Failure to take reasonable care may result in a claim against you. To minimise the risk of any such claim we ask that you return the goods in appropriate packaging such as to prevent damage in transit.

For hygiene reasons all mattresses will be delivered sealed in clear plastic wrapping that will allow for inspection before use. Any mattresses that have been unwrapped will be deemed as having been used. Therefore they cannot be returned for any reason other than because they are not as described or are not of satisfactory quality.

Please note that this only applies to items that are not custom-made or you have not examined the product in one of our showrooms.

Custom- made furniture, or items that have been manufactured to your specification are non-returnable. This includes items such as sofas, built with your choice of fabric or legs with the exception of manufacturer faults or defects. Your statutory rights are unaffected.

We will however keep you in the loop and uptodate with all the information that we have.

What if my furniture doesn’t fit on delivery?

The last thing we want to happen when you order new furniture is that it doesn’t fit or you can’t get it through entrance ways. We can’t advise enough that you take the time to measure your space thoroughly and consider how you will get your furniture into your home. If you have any concerns please raise them with us before ordering so that we can explore possible solutions, if required our experienced delivery team could pop out to inspect access routes.

If it is not possible to install all or selected items of furniture, we will endeavour to find a solution to exchange the order for furniture that will install more easily.

All cases are with dealt with on a case by case basis and at the discretion of the Managing Director in the hope of finding an alternative to the cancellation of the order. If cancellation results, a charge of 25% of the purchase price will be deducted from any refund to cover delivery costs and allow us to sell on the item.

How often should I change my mattress?

There isn’t as such a best before date with mattresses as they wear out based on different factors, however most people will look to change every 7-10 years. Factors that can affect its lifespan include; how it was used (occasional use in the guest room,  as a trampoline for the kids in the master bedroom) whether it was looked after and the quality of the mattress itself.  It also depends on your own comfort levels and how your body may have changed over the years.
