COVID 19: This Notice is in addition to our other delivery terms and conditions on this page.
Courier Notice: In light of the Coronavirus pandemic, and in order to protect the safety of both consignees and the delivery drivers, we have temporarily relaxed the requirement of Clause 5 (2) and will be adopting the NO CONTACT DELIVERY PRACTICE. Consignees will not be required to personally sign the ePOD device or hard copy document, but will be required to provide their name verbally to the delivery driver whereby the driver will include this on the delivery record. Whereby a customer refuses to provide their name, the consignment will not be left with them but fall under the ‘refused goods’ process.
If you have any special delivery requests, i.e safe place to leave, or you are self-isolating then please make notes in the relevant section when ordering.
We are operating a strict warehouse policy, whereby social distancing rules mean dispatches are only being processed 3 times a week. To make up for this, where possible, we have replaced our usual economy services with EXPRESS delivery, therefore our lead times for stock items are generally unaffected.
For orders of non-stocked items and made to measure items, please refer to the usual lead time tab for each product, but be aware that there could still be possible delays, should any ‘lockdown’ measures continue.
We are really passionate about our products and customer service. Delivery is a huge factor, therefore we always carefully select and offer the most suitable options for the weight, size and contents of your order. This ensures it arrives with you exactly how it left us!
- 13th Jan 2021 – It is with deep regret that from this date forward we will no longer be offering FREE delivery on any orders. The cost of shipping, logistics and delivery has been rising throughout the current pandemic and is likely to stay more costly for the foreseeable future. As a small family run company, we have decided that in order to keep providing a high standard of service, it is no longer economical to offer free delivery. Our charges are now under review and may change over the next few weeks. Please ignore any reference to free delivery on our website; the shopping cart will give you the correct charge from now on. – Team EC

We are a small, family run company and are only human!

For advice on access issues please see our FAQ’s> For Scottish Highlands / Islands / Northern Ireland (Zone 7) and Worldwide, please Contact Us> for a competitive quotation.
NB: Some items of furniture require extraordinary dismantling and assembling for tight access. On the item listing a drop down box with an optional cost will be shown. We urge you to select this option if you are in ANY doubt whatsoever that access may be an issue.
