Delivery of furniture is charged at £40.00 per hour, within the M25. The delivery charge is not added when you purchase an item of furniture and is paid separately. If you require delivery inside or outside of this area, please call 01372 842432 for a quote. One man will deliver your furniture to the ground floor. Please be aware if you are purchasing a large piece of furniture, that you take the time to measure both the space you wish the piece to fit into and also any doorways, staircases or spaces on the way to the location in your house. We will not refund items that "do not fit”. Week days and Saturday delivery only. A contact telephone number is required when ordering so we may reach you if there is a problem with your order or if your delivery requires a delivery quote. We may, unless you advise us otherwise, pass this information on to our couriers in case they need to contact you on or before the arranged delivery day. Once you have purchased your item online, we will endeavour to deliver your item to you within 2 weeks on a mutually convenient day and we will ring you prior to delivery with a time slot so you will not have to wait in all day!

If you have ordered a new piece of furniture which may not be in stock and your purchase has been placed on back order (items out of stock will be clearly indicated) we will contact you as soon as the purchase has gone through to advise you on expected delivery dates.
