We are super passionate about our products and customer service. That’s why we always carefully select and offer the most suitable delivery options for your order. This ensures it arrives with you exactly how it left us!

COVID 19: This Notice is in addition to our other delivery terms and conditions on this page.

If you have any special delivery requests, i.e. a safe place to leave deliveries, 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 individual product listing for lead time details. Please be aware that there could still be possible delays, should any ‘lockdown’ measures continue.

Stay Safe! – Team EC

When all is said and done, we know that “free shipping” isn’t actually free. Someone has to pay for it. We would rather keep our product prices as low as possible and our delivery service the best it can be – this costs the following:

New furniture charges and zones
New Accessories delivery charges

Furniture Delivery

Delivered by our professional 1 or 2 man teams to ensure safe arrival to you

Courier Notice – March 2020: In light of the Coronavirus pandemic, and in order to protect the safety of both consignees and the delivery drivers, we 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.

  2. Someone is available at your property when arranged to accept delivery.
  3. There is suitable access, otherwise failed delivery charges will apply. For advice on access issues please see our FAQ’s>

Don’t just take our word for it…

We urge you to select this option if you are in ANY doubt whatsoever that access may be an issue. This service is only available with our Premium delivery service.

We strongly recommend you choose our assembly service for a select few products on our website due to the size and complexity of the items.
