Returns, Refunds and your right to cancel
In compliance with the Consumer Contracts Regulations you have a cooling off period where you may withdraw your order and therefore your agreement with us.
The cooling off period is any time up to fourteen working days after the day we have delivered the product to you.
You must cancel your order in writing by either letter or email. We must receive this within the 14 day period.
If the goods are returned for any other reasons than being defective then you will be required to arrange and pay for the cost of returning the goods to us.
Alternatively we will collect the goods and charge you the direct cost of collection.
The product must be in its delivered form and must not have been tampered with in any way, you are advised to where ever possible use the original packaging to protect the product on its return journey,
unless assembled by our own delivery team.
The product will be inspected on return to ensure that the product has not been tampered with and is complete.
Please be advised that you do have a duty of care for the products during the period of cancellation of your order and the collection of the goods.
Where a refund is to be paid we will refund any money received from you using the same method originally used by you to pay for your purchase.
We will usually process the refund due to you as soon as possible and, in any case within 14 days of the day we received your cancellation instruction.
For hygiene reasons, divan sets pillows and mattresses cannot be returned or cancelled,
unless in accordance with your legal rights e.g. if confirmed as defective by us. Once opened and used these items are excluded from a 14 day cooling off period.
Bespoke Items or Special Orders
Any products that are special order, bespoke or purchased in bulk are not subject to the cooling off period, we will have commissioned a supplier to make them specifically for you.
This will include special order upholstery where a specific fabric and sofa style has been special ordered from a supplier to your order requirements.
