COVID-19 UPDATE - THINGS ARE NOT AS THEY WERE
The Coronavirus outbreak has led to unprecedented delays at our UK sea ports, where we, and many other retailers, are now seeing average turnaround times of goods being significantly extended. This is leading to delays and is affecting the times of when we are able to deliver the furniture to our customers.
Once the furniture does arrive at our distribution centre, we can deliver your order to you in a very short timeframe, we will notify you by email or phone when it arrives and is ready to be dispatched.
Deliveries are currently to doorstep only. The drivers will notify you that the goods are outside and will take a picture to show goods have been delivered, it will be your responsibility to move the goods into your house.
Covid-19 has had a serious impact on all areas of manufacturing and the availability of components. We ask that you bear this in mind when ordering as it can, unfortunately, impact our delivery time to you. For example, there is a national foam shortage due to the fact that the chemicals used to create foams are being used in Covid-19 testing kits. We will always be honest with our customers and give you the lead times we expect. Please be courteous to our staff, product delays are out of their control.
To keep things safe for you and our staff in-store we have implemented the following:
1. Masks and hand gel at the entrance to the store
2. Regular cleaning
3. Only allow 2 sets of customers in at any time
4. Keep 2 meters distance in store
We are regularly monitoring the situation and will keep you informed as and when things change.
Suez Canal Disruption
The disruption to global shipping will be felt by all of us as consumers for a while on all the products we buy. Any customers who have ordered products arriving between mid-April and May will likely experience delays of 2-3 weeks as there are nearly 400 ships with products queuing to get through the canal one at a time. Like any traffic jam, it will take a while for those waiting to get through and we expect to see congestion at UK ports a couple of weeks later as multiple ships arrive at the same time. As always, we appreciate your support and understanding during this time and we will have all of your Products to you as soon as we can.
