What the heck is 'fair delivery'?
We could have offered FREE DELIVERY and hidden the cost by hiking our prices, but we felt that would be cheeky. So we just charge one price for the largest item in your order. No funny business!
How much do we charge for fair delivery?
Small things cost £6 to deliver
(includes lamps, side tables, bed linen and other small squishy things)
Medium things cost £16 to deliver
(includes coffee tables, footstools, mirrors and other mid-sized designs)
Large things cost £39 to deliver
(includes sofas, beds, mattresses, kitchen tables and other large handmade pieces).
How soon can we deliver?
Delivery times for loafing wares that are in stock are as follows:
- Small things are delivered by DPD and will arrive within 2-4 working days.
- Medium things are delivered by Parcelforce and will arrive in 3-5 working days (but we won't despatch until you have selected your delivery date). Please note that due to the UK-wide lockdown Parcelforce are temporarily delaying deliveries. But don't worry! We'll be in touch within 10 working days to book in your delivery.
- Large things are delivered by Wincanton. While we usually deliver within 12 working days of the items arriving in our warehouse, some deliveries are currently taking up to 21 working days. This is due to very high demand and while it's not as quick as we usually like, we're confident it will be worth the wait! If your area is affected by local COVID government restrictions, we may only be able to offer a limited delivery service. We'll be sure to contact you if this is the case.
Smaller items, such as mirrors, rugs, bed linen, cushions, lighting and bedside tables, continue to be delivered to your doorstep using 1-man delivery crews from DPD and Parcelforce. DPD are operating as normal.
If the items you ordered are not in stock or the item is 'made to order' we'll provide a delivery estimate when you place your order.
