Pallet Deliveries

Please be aware that the free delivery option for larger items is a pallet drop off at curbside only.

This service is provided to us by a third party, and you must be aware that:

  • You will have to be at home to receive and sign for this item.
  • Remove the large item from the pallet on the curbside.
  • Remove all packaging.
  • Carry the sizeable heavy item into your home or premises.
  • Assemble the item and dispose of the packaging.

Delivery Options

We highly recommend you consider having your item delivered and set up in the home by one of our fully trained Driver Technicians. This service is far superior to the kerbside pallet delivery and alleviates the problems and stress associated with the receipt and assembly of these heavy items.

This option is available on larger items at the product page. The default delivery option is free kerbside delivery.

The paid options to choose are

-Delivery & Room Placement Ground floor @ £45
-Delivery, Room Placement and Assembly to Ground floor or First Floor @ £95

VAT on Delivery

Unfortunately, VAT is chargeable on all deliveries whether the client is VAT exempt or not, as per HMRC directives.

Made to Order

Some of our products, our recliner chairs, for example, are custom made so require extra time to be manufactured. Under the Distance Selling Regulations, we have 30 days to deliver to you, but please be assured that we strive to do so as quickly as possible.

Out of Stock Items

Occasionally we might be out of stock of an item. In this situation, we will try to contact you by phone or email and offer the option to cancel your order for a full refund if you would rather not wait or receive a suitable alternative.

For orders outside the UK mainland, please contact us Shelden on 01788 833294 for specific delivery prices and we'll do our best to keep the delivery costs as low as we can.
