Shipping Information


Coronavirus (COVID-19) Update

Following revised government guidelines allowing home delivery with assembly to re-commence, we have adjusted the process in order to adhere to new regulations of enhanced santising routines and social distancing. Our crew of delivery professionals will be carrying out a no-contact service with the option of assembly as well as exchanges/ returns from Monday 3rd August. With a large volume of ‘Home delivery with Assembly’ orders having been on hold, we ask for your patience during this time while we work towards fulfilling these orders. As always, taking care of our valued customers, employees and service staff remains our top priority.

If you are waiting on delivery, we will be getting in touch as soon as possible to provide an update and book in a new delivery slot that works for you. Our website will remain open 24/7. Please call our customer care centre on 0800 404 9780 if you have any questions.

We continue to follow current guidelines and restrictions set by the UK government to ensure that we are doing all that is possible for our teams and community to remain protected, while continuing to serve our customers’ needs in creating a comfortable and functional home.
