Handy tips for the delivery to make it easy for you and us

Measure furniture and points of access into your home before placing your order. Access around doorways and stair cases is especially important and these areas can often be tricky to negotiate.Is your road and property lorry friendly? It’s a good idea to move cars off narrow drive ways to ensure the delivery team has enough room to get your goods on to the property.Hardwood furniture is very heavy so please make it as easy as possible for our delivery team to access your home. You know your property better than anyone else so it’s always good to be there yourself to guide the delivery team and make sure everything runs smoothly.If you are unable to be there yourself please ensure someone above the age of 16 is at the property to take the delivery on your behalf. The delivery team will require a signature on delivery.Please note our drivers are not allowed to remove their shoes due to safety reasons and unable to unwrap or assemble any items. Carefully check furniture and retain the original packaging. Please be careful when removing packing to ensure that it stays intact as you will need this in case you wish to return the item to us. Please check your order for damage or missing parts. Retain the packing until you are completely satisfied that there are no issues with your order.
