Making a Purchase
Making a purchase couldn’t be easier. Just browse our store, and add any items you wish to buy to your basket. When you’re ready, click ‘Checkout’, and you will be asked for a few details that we need to complete your order. If you need to change the quantities in your cart, click ‘View Basket’, change the quantity and click ‘Update’.
We accept credit and debit cards in the form of Visa, MasterCard, Switch, Solo, Maestro, Delta, PayPal, Electron and American Express. You can also call our sales team on 0121 230 1644 to place an order.
When confirmation of the order is received, this is to indicate that we have received your order. It does not indicate that a contract exists between us. We will indicate acceptance of your order, and hence a contract between us, when we dispatch your product(s). We have included this term to protect us in the case that a mistake has been made in pricing, we have inadvertently under-priced goods, or we are no longer able to supply a particular product. In the case of a change of price, we will always contact you first to ensure that the new price is acceptable.
If you have any other questions, why not take a look at our Payment FAQs.
We guarantee your satisfaction. All of our products come with an easy return 14-day no quibble money back guarantee and all products come with their own domestic one-year guarantee. In the event that the goods purchased are used, for any period of time, within a commercial or public environment, any warranty or guarantee will be rendered null and void. Please see below for our Returns Policy.
For orders made from the UK or European Union all product prices shown include VAT at a rate of 20%. For customers in the Channel Islands, VAT will automatically be deducted from the total price at checkout. Business owners in Southern Ireland who require a VAT refund should contact customer services.
All orders that you place on this website will be subject to acceptance in order with these terms and conditions. The confirmation stage sets out the final details of your order. Following this, we will send you an order acknowledgement email detailing the products you have ordered, followed by your invoice. Please note that this email is not an order confirmation or order acceptance from us. Acceptance of your order and the completion of the contract between you and us will take place on dispatch to you of the products ordered unless we have notified you that we do not accept your order or have cancelled it.

In the unlikely event of your goods being delivered faulty or damaged, you must contact us within 14 days of the date of delivery in order for us to arrange a replacement. Warranties issued by the manufacturer and ourselves concerning faulty or damaged goods do not in any way exclude the statutory rights of the customer under the Sale of Goods Act. We will in turn be responsible for the shipping costs to you if the goods are faulty during this period.
We aim to deliver goods to mainland UK destinations on the next working day using our nominated courier once we have dispatched them. However, we cannot be liable for any loss caused to you by late delivery. If the goods are not delivered within the delivery time quoted for that item, please contact us. We will endeavour to inform you if we become aware of an unexpected delay. We will try to ensure that you receive your order, as quickly as possible, or if you wish you may cancel your order and we will refund you any money which you have paid so long as the goods are awaiting dispatch by ourselves.
If your item is not in stock, we will backorder it for you. You will always be emailed giving you details of the anticipated delivery date.
Pricing & Availability
Whilst we try and ensure that all details, descriptions and prices which appear on this website are accurate, errors may occur. If we discover an error in the price of any goods that you have ordered we will inform you of this as soon as possible and give you the option of reconfirming your order at the correct price or cancelling it. If we are unable to contact you we will treat the order as cancelled. If you cancel and you have already paid for the goods, you will receive a full refund.
All prices displayed on the site are inclusive of VAT. We offer free Delivery for all UK mainland customers as standard; any additional upgrade charges are clearly displayed where applicable and included in the 'Total Cost'.
Upon receiving your order we carry out a standard pre-authorisation check on your payment card to ensure that there are sufficient funds to fulfil the transaction. Goods will not be dispatched until this pre-authorisation check has been completed. Your card will be debited once the order has been accepted.
Account discount codes- Discount codes may from time to time be offered to account holders. Such codes may only be applied to purchases made through the account in respect of which the discount code was offered and registered.
Promotional discount codes- We may from time to time offer promotional discount codes which may apply in respect of any, or certain specified, purchases made though this website.
Your rights to return goods are protected under the Consumer Contracts Regulations 2013, which can be found at www.legislation.gov.uk.
Returns are easy. You can return goods you have ordered from us for any reason at any time within 30 days of receipt for a full refund or exchange. This does not affect your statutory right to cancel. There will be no charge for returns if the goods are deemed faulty. If you have a change of heart and decide you’ve ordered the wrong product we can arrange a pick-up for you. This is done at a cost of £10 per box for mainland UK (please note- most bar stools are packaged two in a box). If you are unsure of the exact price, please do not hesitate to contact us. For returns, whereby you have ordered the wrong product or had a change of heart, we ask that the item is unused and unassembled, and in its original packaging in a saleable condition. Please take reasonable care of the items whilst they are in your possession, and repackage any items with due care and attention.
Upon cancellation of the order we will give you a full refund of the amount paid, or exchange credit, as required.
As an addition, the rights to return the goods to us will not apply in the following circumstances. This does not affect your statutory right to cancel:
In the event that the product has been used - unless the product is faulty
In the event that the product has been assembled - unless the product is faulty
To any products that we have made or customised specifically for you
The items were ordered especially for yourself from our supplier
Right to Cancel
You have the right to cancel the purchase of an item without having to give a reason at any time within the "cooling off period" of 14 working days, beginning on the day after you receive the goods. Please notify us of your cancellation in writing or in another durable medium to our contact address.
If you are in possession of the goods you are under the duty to retain them and take reasonable care of them. You can either send the goods back to us in their original condition to our contact address at your own cost (unless we delivered the item to you in error or the item is damaged or defective) as soon as possible once you have cancelled the contract. We reserve the right to make a charge not exceeding our direct costs of recovering the goods if you do not return the goods or return them at our expense. Alternatively we can collect the goods from you. This service is offered at a standard charge of £10 per box for mainland UK. You must make the goods available for collection. For further arrangements we will contact you. Once you have notified us that you wish to cancel the contract, any sum debited to us will be refunded to you as soon as possible and in any event within 14 days of your cancellation.
You will not have any right to cancel a purchase for the supply of goods made to your specifications or clearly personalised or which by reason of their nature cannot be returned.
The Waste Electrical or Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Directive requires countries to maximise separate collection and environmentally friendly processing of these items. In the UK, distributors including retailers must provide a system that allows all customers buying new electrical equipment the opportunity to recycle their old items free of charge. As a responsible retailer, we have met the requirements placed on us by financially supporting the national network of WEEE recycling centres established by local authorities. This is achieved through membership of the national Distributor Take-back scheme (DTS). You can tell which products are classed as WEEE by the crossed wheelie bin logo that is displayed on the product. This logo is a sign to discourage the unofficial disposal of the item. For more information on WEEE recycling, or to locate your nearest recycling centre, please visit www.recycle-more.co.uk.
