FAQs (Frequently Asked Questions)
Shipping & Delivery
How long will it take for my office furniture to be delivered and arrive?
Once your order is received and processed on our website then the deliveries are scheduled to arrive within 7 working days. If you require your furniture sooner then sometimes we can speed up an order delivery, but you will need to contact us to arrange a quicker delivery.
Do you really offer free shipping on all orders?
Yes, we do. Free shipping is applicable to all customers who reside in the UK mainland. If you are outside of the mainland in the Scotland Highland and Islands then we might have to make a small delivery charge. In cases such as this please contact us so we can detail the charges once we have your postal address.
How can I chase up an order that I have made?
Please use the contact form on our contact page if in the unlikely event that your delivery is late. We also have an option to track your order which you can find on the shop navigation in the footer of the website.
How much do you charge for delivery outside of UK mainland?
Nothing. Zero. Zilch. Part of commitment to customer satisfaction and reducing the costs your business has to spend on office furniture means that we offer free delivery to all addresses in mainland UK.
The only exception to this is UK addresses outside of the mainland, so for example Scotland Highland and Islands will incur a small charge. Please call us when ordering if this applies to you so we can calculate the applicable charges.
Do you deliver abroad and to foreign addresses?
Currently we do not ship abroad, only to addresses inside of the United Kingdom.
Do you offer next day delivery?
Yes we do, but there will be a small delivery charge incurred. Once you have ordered please contact us to arrange quicker delivery and we can put together a quote based on your order value and weight.
Assembly & Fitting (Plus Clearance)
Are you able to install the office furniture for me?
Yes, of course. That is no problem at all, but we will need to charge a fee in order to do so. When you order from us, drop us a line and we can prepare an installation quote for you.
Our professional installation team will even tidy up and remove any waste afterwards so you have the perfect office and can get straight to work.
Do you charge for assembling, installing, and fitting furniture?
Unfortunately we do have to charge a small assembly fee. If you require our professional assembly team to fit and install your furniture then contact us after your order and we will prepare a small quote for you.
Can you take away my old office furniture or provide a clearance service?
Yes we can! We have been providing office clearance services for many years, and will happily do this for you. Just call our team today to find out more.
Returns & Refunds Policy
What happens if I don’t like the furniture and want to return it?
We can only return items that are unopened and in their original packaging, once opened we cannot return unfortunately. Returns also must be requested within 14 days of receiving the item. If item is in original packaging, unopened and requested within the timescale, the return charge would be 25% off what you paid for the item.
My delivery has arrived but a part is damaged or missing what shall I do?
This has yet to happen with any of our customers, but if it does rest assured we will be straight on the case. Simply contact us and explain the issue and one of our team will get a new part sent out immediately at no charge to you.
