4.4 When you order through our website, it is your responsibility to check all details of the goods (items colours, texture, measurements etc.) in your basket. In pressing the checkout button, you agree that the order and the specifications and options that you have chosen are correct.
4.5 When placing an order, it is your responsibility to check when products will be available for delivery and if the timetable accords to your needs.
4.6 Once you order from us, you will receive an email confirming the details of your order, this is the order confirmation. At this point, a legally binding contract will be in place between you and us.
4.7 It is your responsibility to check the order confirmation and notify us immediately by telephone or email (our contact details are provided above) of any errors. We will use our reasonable efforts to promptly respond by telephone or email to any queries that you raise.
5.1 We will advise of a delivery date to fit with the requirements on the order confirmation. Usually within a timeframe of 6 to 8 weeks from the order confirmation date the goods arrive to our warehouse. If this does not suit you, you must advise us within 48 hours of receiving the order confirmation by contacting us on 01708 947486 or by email at email@example.com.
5.2 Please note that we shall require 7 to 10 days to arrange delivery once the estimated timeframe of 6 to 8 weeks is completed and the goods arrived at our warehouse. Please note that once an order is confirmed, you will be contacted by our delivery partner to select a convenient delivery date for any larger items such as beds, mattresses, or furniture. For accessories, bed linen and bedding, you’ll be contacted by DPD, who will advise you of the expected delivery date.
5.3 We are not responsible for delays outside our control. If the supply of the products is delayed by an event outside our control then we will contact you as soon as possible to let you know and we will take steps to minimise the effect of the delay.

5.8 For orders containing more than one item, the delivery fee charged is for the single largest item in the order. Our delivery rates include two-person delivery. The majority of our furniture comes fully assembled, except for beds, which require simple assembly. We are able to offer assembly service. Where assembly service has been requested from us, it is your responsibility to provide somewhere for a delivery vehicle to park for the duration of the in-home assembly at your cost, which can be up to 2 hours per item.
5.9 We will deliver the goods to the delivery address as specified in the order confirmation unless an alternative place and time has been requested from you in writing 48 hours prior to the delivery date. The goods will be at your risk and your responsibility from the time of delivery.
5.10 We will only deliver to ground floor residences, or to the first floor where access is adequate and easy, or to higher floors where there is an appropriate sized and working lift. If delivery is required to higher floors and there is no lift or the lift is not big enough to take the items, we will deliver to the ground floor only and ask that you get help in taking the products upstairs.
5.11 It is the customer’s responsibility solely to ensure the dimensions of the purchased product will fit into the room requested and without access issues. Please check before purchasing an item that it can be delivered to the room you wish. We will not be responsible if your order does not fit into the building or room of choice. It is strictly your responsibility to measure the doors, hallways, staircases, and rooms to ensure the goods ordered can be delivered having regard to its dimensions. You must ensure it is safe for the goods to be delivered to the relevant room in your house. Should windows or doors need to be removed or any alterations (including dismantling existing furniture) are required to allow access, it is your responsibility to arrange this at your own cost and your own risk prior to delivery of the goods.
5.12 When possible the goods will be delivered to the relevant rooms but should access prove in any way difficult, or our delivery partners are concerned for their health and safety, delivery to the relevant rooms will not be made. It will then be your responsibility to arrange delivery of the goods to the required rooms. We will not accept any cancellation or refund requests due to any reasons stated under Terms 5.11 and 5.12. If an item cannot be delivered due to reasons stated in Term 5.11 and this Term 5.12, it will be returned to our warehouse and a delivery return fee of £100 and a storage fee of £50 per week (this is subject to change depending on the size and delicate nature of the product in question) will be charged.
5.13 We will not accept liability for any damage caused to the goods or to any premises as a consequence of delivering to a location where access is restricted as ensuring there is sufficient and adequate access for the installation of the goods is strictly your responsibility.
5.13 You may incur additional charges to cover delivery, storage and insurance of goods (which will be confirmed by us case by a case basis) if:
5.13.1 no one is available at your address to take delivery during the agreed delivery window (although we will contact you using the details you provided for further instructions);
5.13.2 there are no safe and/or adequate means of access to the place of delivery or we are otherwise unable to deliver because of the limits on delivery listed above; or
5.13.3 you cancel the delivery 96 hours before the delivery date and want to rearrange delivery.
5.14 You will be asked to check the goods where the drivers have been able to leave them and sign the delivery note. We cannot be held responsible for any damage occurring after the delivery has been made whether as a result of you moving the goods into another room or otherwise.
5.16 It is your responsibility to inspect the goods immediately upon receipt and to sign the delivery note acknowledging that the goods have been received complete and in good condition. If a third party is checking on behalf of you, you warrant that they have your full authority to sign for the goods and to add comments on the delivery note or to confirm that the goods have arrived in good condition.
5.17 Where the goods form part of one order and are to be delivered in instalments, each delivery shall constitute a separate contract and failure by us to deliver any one or more of the instalments in accordance with these Terms or any claim by you in respect of any one or more instalments shall not entitle you to treat the contract as a whole as repudiated.
5.18 For bespoke goods, we will notify you of the estimated delivery date. The estimated manufacture/production date for the goods will be notified to you during the order process. Given the bespoke nature of the goods, you have agreed that any such date shall be an estimate and time shall not be of the essence in our contract with you.
6. PRICE AND PAYMENT
6.1 The price of the goods (which includes VAT) shall be the price indicated on the order pages when you placed your order. We take reasonable care to ensure that the price of the goods advised to you is correct. VAT shall be charged at the prevailing rate. If the rate of VAT changes between your order date and the date we supply the goods, we will adjust the rate of VAT that you pay, unless you have already paid for the goods in full before the change in the rate of VAT takes effect.
6.2 The price of any goods is the price in place at the date and time of your order. The price may increase or decrease at a later date but this will not affect your order subject to 6.4 below. At the time of order, your payment will secure the current price of the goods you order only.
6.3 Prices displayed on our website are for online purchases only and are not guaranteed for sales through any other method.
6.4 We will normally check our prices regularly as part of our advertising and dispatch procedures. Despite our best efforts, some of the goods listed on our website may be incorrectly priced.
