Delivery & Refunds

Delivery details

Please note: Acceptance by us of a payment made by you in connection with any products does not constitute our acceptance of your order. A legally binding contract is not formed until you receive our order confirmation email and we will not be obliged to supply products to you until then.

Also please note the warehouse team will use their experience and discretion when packing and delivering items. Not every item can be delivered on a weight only basis and the warehouse delivery team will alert you to any changes where possible. Some products are excluded from soft/light package deliveries and may require to be shipped at pallet rates.

Most tiles and timber flooring will need to be delivered on a pallet, even if they’re a low weight. Pallets help keep your tiles and timber flooring safe.

Our delivery partners will drop your products as close to your door as is physically possible and safe. But, they will not carry your products inside the door. The nature of our products involves some quite heavy items and boxes please ensure you have assistance to bring the goods indoors.

If you require your products to be brought inside, please contact us directly well in advance of your delivery date and we will do our best to schedule a special delivery. Please note extra charges and time restraints apply and the delivery teams safety is paramount. Please treat the delivery team fairly. Tailored special deliveries are best organised well in advance, it keeps costs to a minimum and hopefully allows for wriggle room should any unexpected delays arise. 


If your product is in stock, we aim to deliver it within 3 to 5 working days. If you need it faster contact us and we will do our best for you.

If your product is not in stock, we’ll order more. But, this will increase the lead time for your delivery. 

Restock guide lead time estimates are included on the item’s product page. Our products are physical, heavy and come from every corner of the world. Weather, material availability and sheer distance can all have an impact on lead times. 




Our delivery partners will deliver your products, but they need your help! Please ensure there is a dedicated, safe, level place to drop your products. Please alert us if there are any access issues with your site. Remember your delivery could arrive by articulated truck so if it doesn't fit down your road alternative methods may be required and there may be a charge involved. If we are not advised and a second delivery is required then additional delivery charges will accrue
