How will my goods be delivered?
We use a pallet network to deliver our furniture. Therefore goods will be delivered palletised. Please be aware it is the customer’s responsibility to remove or dispose of any packaging, including the wooden pallet itself. For smaller orders such as 1 or 2 chairs, your goods may come boxed on a smaller courier van. Do not dispose of your old furniture until the new furniture has been delivered. In order for us to be able to make any deliveries during School holidays, it is imperative that full access and contact details are supplied well in advance to allow scheduling. Please notify us of any relevant school opening and closing times during holiday periods with your order.

Returns of correctly delivered stock items will be subjected to a 25% handling and restocking charge. The items must be unused and in saleable condition. Some items are manufactured specifically for a customer’s order. We can only accept these goods back if they are faulty and for no other reason. Our upholstered seating is assembled and upholstered to order, and as such cannot be returned unless faulty.
