Legal & ethical policies

Furniture delivery and returns

Valid for orders placed via, in-store and over the phone.

  • Payment

    All card transactions will be processed on the day you place your order.


    Before you place your order, you must check your furniture’s dimensions and check that it will fit into your home and into your chosen room and through all access routes. You will also need space should any assembly of the product be required by our delivery crew.

    If the product does not fit, we will class it as a cancelled order and you will incur a €35 charge. This will show as a separate charge and not be deducted from your refund.


    Furniture delivery to ROI can take up to 14 days longer than stated on the product page.


    Occasionally, the delivery of your furniture may be delayed or postponed. We will, of course, make every effort to keep you informed and discuss revised delivery timescales.

    Cancellations and amendments

    Should you need to change your order, please contact our service team on (0044) 3330 148 000. If you amend your order, you may find there are changes to your delivery timescales and/or the price you pay for the item(s) (you will be charged the current selling price on the day you amend the order). You have a legal right to cancel your order within 14 days after the day on which you received your goods. All items returned must be in a reasonable condition and there will be a collection charge (€35).

    Furniture Disposal Service

    This service is ordinarily available for upholstery, mattresses and beds, but please note the points below.

    This service must be ordered with your new product and cannot be ordered after you have placed your order.

    Removal charges are €49 for upholstery (per item) and €39 for mattresses and beds (per item), e.g. disposal of two sofas would cost €98.

    We will only collect products from the same address as your new furniture is being delivered to.

    The product(s) will not be removed if infested, wet, heavily soiled or dangerous to remove.

    You must arrange for bedsteads to be disassembled prior to collection.
