Delivery Terms and Conditions

Delivery cost

Deliveries are free of charge to most of mainland UK (some exclusions apply). However, we apply a £7.50 handling charge for orders under £50.

All other areas have different pricing structures, and delivery periods depend on the order weight. Prices vary quite widely but we merely pass on the cost. Your delivery cost is calculated automatically and shown in the shopping basket.

For overseas deliveries there may be an extra surcharge which we'll confirm once we've received your order.

Production and standard delivery time

All made-to-measure units are designed and manufactured to your exact sizes once you have placed your order. This normally takes approximately two weeks from receipt of your order with payment; however, this depends on the items ordered, their sizes and paint finishes. The two weeks may become longer during busy periods (please see note on home page). In exceptional circumstances we may be able to produce certain items more quickly.

All orders are sent on a next-working-day delivery service as soon as they are completed. When your order leaves us you will be notified by text or email around 4pm the working day before your scheduled delivery. If that is inconvenient you have until 9.30pm (about 5½ hours) to reschedule the delivery by going online as indicated in the text. You can defer delivery for up to five days with no charge. Statistically, more than 95% of deliveries are actually completed the next day - therefore the 'next day' is not guaranteed.

Delivery is between 8am to 6pm Monday to Friday, and you must be able to accept your delivery on this basis. If your house is hard to find or you want your order delivered to a neighbour please put a short message and a contact telephone number on the order form to help the driver.

Most of our deliveries are made by a third party courier parcel service. However, depending on your location and the size of the order we may use a direct van delivery, in which case you will not receive a text but we will call you in the preceding days to arrange any details.

The 'next day' service is available within most of mainland UK but some areas take additional days depending on destination.

Call When Ready

This service is the same as the Standard but instead of despatching your order as soon as it is complete, we hold it in our stores and telephone you to arrange despatch. If we are unable to contact you it will delay the order. We can normally hold parcels for up to five working days but we reserve the right to charge on a per-day basis after that period. Please tick the box on the order form if you require this service.

Receiving your order

Please check that the parcels are addressed to you and that all your parcels have been delivered - if not ask the driver to check the van. See the text for the number of parcels in the delivery. Your parcels may be large, heavy and/or cumbersome and you may be asked to help to move the parcels. The delivery service will take the parcels to the door of the building (or as close as is reasonably possible) but not necessarily to, or inside, the door of your residence. If access to the door is restricted (for example if you live in a block of flats or within a traffic-restricted zone) it is your responsibility to tell us this when you place the order, as it may affect the delivery.

Damaged parcels

When receiving a delivery please check it for obvious damage. If you receive a damaged parcel, sign for it with "damaged but contents unchecked" and let us know which parts are damaged. We will remake and send them free-of-charge as quickly as possible. Please do not assemble your item until we have resolved the issue.

Failed delivery

If the van driver is unable to deliver because you were out they will leave you a card advising of the attempted delivery. If they do this please call the number on the card as soon as possible (not us) to rearrange delivery. If the van is still in your area they will try to return that day to make the delivery. They will only attempt delivery three times; then they will return the goods to us. This will incur a return cost for us and a re-delivery cost for you the customer.

Late delivery

We will always do our very best to get deliveries to you without inconvenience, and our performance record is very good. However, due to the nature of the service we offer and the delivery companies, we cannot guarantee the delivery time or day, so please do not arrange to have fitters or builders waiting for a delivery. Therefore, if you use our services, you must accept these circumstances. We are unable to accept liability for any consequential losses.
