Delivery

Nearly all our products are 'bulk' items which are despatched from at least four different warehouses. Each warehouse has it's own distribution arrangement with carriers who are have the experience in delivering that particular type of furniture product. Many items are large and heavy and require very careful handling.

As such we cannot we cannot offer a common delivery service for all our products. Delivery areas and delivery charges vary according to the product(s) you have ordered. Please go to DELIVERY INFORMATION for full details.

Please also refer to the DELIVERY tab which is found on every product webpage. This contains the following information that relates to that particular product: 

Product Group Code (PRODUCT GROUP A, B or C..) (identifies the warehouse or source of each product) Delivery Time (approximate delivery lead time from receipt of payment or purchase order)
Delivery Area (lists UK mainland postcode area/district delivery exceptions and restrictions)
Delivery Charges: (delivery rates and thresholds for free delivery for each product group)
Service Type: (one-man or two-man delivery service)

For access, handling and other logistical reasons we are are unable to deliver some products to private residential addresses. Information on which products are available for delivery to Private and Commercial Premises and which are only available for delivery to Commercial Properties only will also be found in the DELIVERY tab on every product's webpage

We always aim to deliver in the time frame stated but we cannot guarantee this as delays are occasionally inevitable due to unforeseen factors. ‘Care Home Furniture’ shall not be liable for any losses incurred by the buyer as a result of any delay in delivery of the goods. 

Delivery of the Goods shall be made to the Customer's address and the Customer shall make all arrangements necessary to take delivery of the Goods whenever they are tendered for delivery.

Delivery will be either by postal/parcel service (for small items and some mattresses), or by furniture van delivery. A pallet delivery service may be used on occasions to supplement the regular furniture van delivery service at busier times of the year, or to provide extra coverage to areas outside our normal delivery catchment area. Furniture van deliveries will arrive between 9am-5pm Monday to Friday (unless otherwise arranged with our office), and are made to inside front/main door at pavement level only.

 We will contact you in advance (Furniture Van Deliveries)  to advise when the delivery will be made. Failed deliveries may incur extra charges. 

Orders with several order line items may be delivered on multiple dates depending on the items ordered and which warehouse they are being dispatched from. Products are not automatically be sent together.

Damage in Transit 

As internal damage cannot always be identified on delivery, the customer must sign the driver's manifest as “unchecked”. Please advise us within 48 hours of receipt of the goods if damage is found upon opening packages. We will require pictures of damage products to enable us to resolve the problem as soon as possible. It is imperative that the customer does not dispose of any of the packaging, as this will be required to affect a claim against the carrier.  We cannot accept any claims for damage if the above time scales are not followed. 

Shortages 

It is the customer's responsibility to sign for the correct number of packages that are delivered; the customer is required to check that the number of packages delivered equal the number of packages on the delivery driver's manifest/consignment note. Any shortages must be noted on the driver's manifest and it is the customer's responsibility to thereafter notify us within 48 hours of delivery. 

Should the customer be missing an item but has signed for the full number of packages, the customer must notify us within 48 hours of delivery. The matter will be investigated immediately and the customer will be advised.

Faulty Goods 

If you think that the product you have purchased is faulty we may refer you to the manufacturer. If the manufacturer agrees that the product is faulty, in most cases they will be able to authorize a replacement/repair of the product direct to you. This does not affect your statutory rights. 

A fee of 15% plus carriage is charged on returns, which prove to be non-defective. It is therefore important that you contact with us before returning a product. The fee is non-negotiable.

Incorrect Goods 

It is the customers responsibility to notify us of any incorrect goods supplied within 48 hours of delivery. If the items are not as ordered the customer must not open the manufacturers packaging or use the item.

If the made-to-order goods have already been manufactured we will charge 100% of the order price as these goods cannot be returned to the manufacturer. 

If 'Non Made-to-Order' or standard 'ex stock' products have not been dispatched we will change the order as requested or cancel it and refund your full payment free of charge. If your order has been dispatched we will charge a cancellation fee of 20% of the order price which will cover the cost of returning and re-stocking the order. Refunds will not be processed unless the goods are packaged in their original packaging and are in a saleable condition.

Any faulty goods under warranty must be reported to us with a full description of the fault. We will also require pictures of the faulty item. If the fault is deemed to be a manufacturer fault and the item is under guarantee then we will replace the item free of charge.
