We do not undertake to deliver or collect any loads over roads or other ground which we consider to be unsuitable. If a vehicle is used for performing our contract with a customer, delivers or collects a load to or from a place situated off a hard roadway, the customer is to be solely responsible for any accident or damage resulting in consequence. We may also reserve the right to refuse delivery to any site with unsuitable access, it will then become the customer’s responsibility to arrange alternative transport.
In order to maintain the quality of our service we like to use our own delivery service whenever possible therefore the majority of our Furniture deliveries are carried out by our in house team. In order to keep costs down we use a one man delivery therefore, you will need to arrange someone fit and able to assist the delivery driver. If this is a issue then we can arrange a two man delivery for an additional fee. If a delivery is required urgently or if it is beyond our limitations then sometimes we will use a courier. When we use a courier, your goods are well packaged and loaded securely on a pallet – all furniture is bubble wrapped and encased in an MDF box where possible to reduce the risk of damage. The courier driver will only deliver kerbside so please make arrangements to carry your goods into the house. A signature will be requested upon delivery. All goods must be inspected for quality and quantity upon receipt, any problems must be notified within 24 hours.
If the item(s) you have ordered are in stock then we will endeavour to get this to you as soon as possible. You will be contacted to be advised of a delivery timescale. If you are having/waiting for an item(s) to be made then you will be contacted near the time of completion and a suitable delivery day will be arranged. Please note, all of our furniture is hand made and unique and our listed sizes are approxiamte. To avoid any dissapointment PLEASE DOUBLE CHECK your measurements for access into the house/room. We would much rather you ask us three times to measure your individual piece to ensure it is going to fit where you intend it to be. PLEASE NOTE: all deliveries are to the GROUND FLOOR ONLY.
Hard Materials & Flooring
For stone and timber deliveries, these are likely to be palletised and delivered by courier for further afield customers. You will be contacted to arrange a convenient day for delivery. When we use a courier, your goods are well packaged and loaded securely on a pallet – please note, the pallet will be left with you and is your responsibility to either re use or dispose of. The courier driver will only deliver kerbside so please make arrangements to carry your goods into the house. A signature will be requested upon delivery. All goods must be inspected for quality and quantity upon receipt, any problems must be notified within 24 hours. When we deliver using our own transport we use a one man delivery therefore, you will need to arrange someone fit and able to assist the delivery driver.
