Questions About Delivery

All orders under £75 incur a £5.95 delivery charge. We offer a free standard delivery for orders over £75. 

Free standard delivery applies to all parcels dispatched to our standard delivery areas. Other remote mainland locations, highlands and islands require alternative shipping methods. Please check your postcodes here. Non-standard delivery charges are priced individually on an order by order basis. Please contact our Customer Service Team for a quote here.

All items can be delivered to the Isle of Man, Isle of Wight, Channel Islands and Northern Ireland. Please contact us for a delivery quote. 

Occasionally some postcodes may carry a surcharge for delivery. We will contact you once you have placed an order if this is the case. 

Smaller size and weight parcels are delivered by Royal Mail and DPD. Our standard delivery service does not include any room delivery, furniture assembly or removal of packaging. 

For larger furniture items marked with VIP Service in the delivery information tab on each product will be delivered by our two man VIP delivery service. 

Once your order is ready for dispatch on the VIP delivery service you will be contacted to arrange a convenient delivery day with a three hour time slot for delivery. The day prior to delivery you will be sent a reminder about your VIP delivery slot and then on the day you will be telephoned approximately 45 minutes prior to your delivery.

On arrival your order will be delivered into your desired room (provided it is safe to do so). The VIP delivery service includes product assembly and removal of packaging should this be required. 

Delivery times are estimated, we will of course endeavour to deliver within this time but occasionally there may be delays. 

Any deliveries beyond your doorstep are carried out at your own risk. 

DPD will attempt delivery for 3 consecutive days, after which your order will be returned to us here. If your order is being delivered by Royal Mail they will pop a card through your door to advise you on the next steps and to rearrange the delivery.

If you have ordered a large or fragile item using the VIP delivery service, it will need to rebooked which can take up to 2 weeks. Please note redelivery charges will be charged at full cost to the customer. 

Where a safe place is specified for delivery, should the parcel go missing the customer assumes full responsibility. 

We cannot dispatch large furniture items internationally, however we are able to send all other products. If you would like to arrange shipping anywhere elsewhere overseas please contact us for a delivery quote.
