Heavy Furniture Delivery
How will my furniture be delivered?
As a small independent company we do not have our own delivery team and our furniture and larger items are delivered by experienced national couriers. Please be aware when ordering large pieces of furniture that these companies provide a one man, kerbside delivery service. It is essential that there are at least 2 suitable persons available on the agreed day of delivery to help unload the furniture and take it to the final location. Bounty of the Sea Ltd is only responsible for delivery to kerbside.
We are unable to refund delivery charges if there is no one available to assist on the agreed day of delivery, and additional re-delivery charges will be applied. We are unable to guarantee the re-delivery as next day as there may be scheduling conflicts and an alternative date will have to be confirmed.
Please contact us on 01803 411 330 or email email@example.com for advice and information regarding your delivery.
Can I change my agreed delivery day?
We like to arrange your delivery with you as far in advance as we can, usually seven days before.
If, for whatever reason, you are not going to be available on the agreed delivery day, we will require at least 48 hours notice. Failure to notify us of a change of delivery day may result in additional delivery charges but we will try to avoid this additional cost wherever possible.
What happens to the furniture’s packaging?
Our furniture is well packaged to make sure that it reaches you in the best possible condition. As we use third party delivery firms to get the furniture to you, we are unable to take the packaging away after delivery. It will be your responsibility to dispose of the packaging once delivery has been completed.
How will I receive the glass for my dining table?
A) specialist glass suppliers
We use specialist glass suppliers that manufacture the glass for your table and deliver straight from their factory to you. This is a one man delivery service and it is your responsibility to have 1 to 2 persons available to maneouvre the glass into your property.
Any problems or damage to the glass should be noted on delivery and reported to the driver. The glass supplier will deal with issues directly and they will liaise with you to solve any problems that you may have.
The glass and the table will be sent from separate locations but we endeavor where possible to deliver both on the same day but not necessarily at the same time. There will be occasions when the table and glass are delivered on different days. If this is the case, we will inform you as soon as possible to make arrangements.
B) Private Courrier
We can sometimes use a private courrier of which is a one man service, the same as a normal courrier. You will need to arrange for extra help at the delivery address as our one man may not be able to lift items alone. The courier is not obliged to deliver beyond your front door. If the glass is being delivered with the base it is essential that you sign to confirm the items have been in perfect condition. If there is any issue with goods please contact us immediately on 01803 411 330 to discuss the return and replacement of the item.
What if the furniture doesn’t fit on Delivery?
It is your responsibility to advise us at the time of ordering your furniture of difficulties that may be encountered when delivering to you property, ensuring that we have all relevant information in written confirmation. Delivery and charges will not be refunded in circumstances where insufficient access is the reason for return.
