Our normal service and pricing structure is achieved by building up orders - and then placing an order for a full Container to be shipped from the factory to the United kingdom. This bulk shipping method enables us to keep transportation costs to a minimum - and enables us to buy the products more competitively - and pass on the savings to our Customers. Most people would rather use this method to maintain the lowest possible prices - despite the waiting time involved. These waiting periods can be as long as 6 months - although a lot of the time the containers will fill more quickly. If you choose to use this service - please note that we cannot be held accountable for lead times due to the unpredictable nature of Internet Sales.
Normal lead times from the point where we order a Container are ( approximately ) 8 weeks to build and finish the furniture - and around 3 - 4 weeks to freight to the UK. These are approximate lead times only as all of our orders are built to customers specifications - so we cannot be liable for any time variation caused by matters outside of our control.
Deliveries outside of our local delivery area
Where a UK based customer lives a long way outside of our local Free Delivery area we have found that the cheapest way to get the goods delivered to your home is to get the furniture Pre Crated in the factory and then loaded onto our container. When the container arrives - we can then send the goods on a standard carrier such as TNT to your home address. The cost of Pre Crating is US$2.00 per cubic foot - with the minimum charge of 50 cubic feet per customer ( so again it pays to fill your crate up as you will pay US$100 for a crate which can take this amount of furniture )
From July 1998 - we have negotiated a deal with our supplier to deal with customers who do not want to wait for their furniture. An average order takes 8 weeks to produce from point of order - with 3 weeks shipping to the UK. We have always had to order container loads at a time to hold our Prices static. However - due to the amount of trade which we now pass to our supplier - we have recently agreed a deal where we get the container rate on individual pieces of furniture - for people who want to have the goods Crated and Freighted individually - instead of waiting for our next Container shipment. Whilst the freight charge, packing charge - and Insurance are chargeable as extras - we can now offer this service for around 8 - 12 weeks from Point of Order to your door. Please ask for further details if you need a fast delivery.
All shipments outside of the UK will be handled by the Individual crating method - and will be quoted in this manner for logistical reasons. We are happy to price any of our furniture - delivered to your nearest port - Anywhere in the World !!!
For information on the anticipated date of our next container shipment to the U. K. - please e mail us Our prices include shipping to the UK via the next full container load - and also includes Insurance and Import Duty. Deliveries to your door are included locally - but for other areas in the UK - we base all of our prices on a Collected Basis. We can offer home delivery anywhere in the UK at an extra charge. Please ask for details.
We are happy to supply prices on a wholesale basis - collected from our premises - or delivered by 20 foot container directly from the factory - at extremely competitive prices. Please ask for details.
