Can I get a faster delivery if I dont want to wait ?
If the factory has your chosen items already built - then it could be packed and crated within a week - and 3 weeks to ship to the UK. If they dont have it in stock - we can build your furniture in around 6 weeks and then ship in 3 weeks via Crated LCL Delivery to Southampton.
To get an idea of the Fast Freight costs Click on any product on our UK website and select the Fast Freight tab. ( see below ).

Worldwide - We Deliver direct from the factory to your nearest Port !
If you live outside of the UK - we can offer fantastic deals based on shipping Direct to your nearest Sea Port from the factory .
As we do not have to handle the goods - we make only a token profit to cover the paperwork - and thus we can keep our costs VERY VERY LOW. For example if you are based in the USA - any retailer has to ship over containers, pay all haulage and handling fees as well as customs charges - ship to their retail outlet - and also cover the overheads of running their store and staff - BEFORE making any profit.
We just offer the same product shipped in a crate WORLDWIDE - directly from the Factory to your nearest Sea Port - where you can then simply hire a Uhaul or similar - to go and collect the furniture yourself - saving all the costs above.
Ask us to quote a deliver anywhere in the World - you will be amazed at how low the prices will be in comparison to your retail outlets. All our worldwide sales are shipped with full "All Risks Insurance" to cover you .
