Detailed terms of sale
Delivery to England and Wales is free of charge.
Additional charges apply for delivery to North Scotland, UK Islands, Northern Ireland and all other non-mainland locations.
Next day delivery for small parcel items.
For our medium sized items (such as patio heaters, dining chairs and rattan accessories) delivery is usually 3-5 working days.
For our larger items (such as dining sets and sofa sets) delivery is 5-8 working days
Our large furniture sets are sent with a two-man delivery service (except in the unlikely event that two-man delivery is not available). There is the option at checkout to include a preferred delivery date. If you choose to include a preferred date please make sure it is no sooner than the 3rd working day after the date of purchase. Although we will do our best to arrange delivery for a requested date, please be aware this is subject to availability with the courier and therefore cannot always be guaranteed. For our larger furniture items you must also provide a telephone contact number for delivery (mobile preferred) so the courier can contact you. Delivery may be delayed if a number is not provided as we are unable to dispatch without one. Once we have received your order we will arrange for the furniture to be collected by the courier. The courier will then contact you directly by text or email with your delivery date. You will also receive a call, text or email the day or evening before delivery with your estimated delivery time window. Please be aware once your delivery date has been arranged you may be responsible for any additional charges incurred from the delivery company should you then wish to change the delivery date. Please note delivery is dependent on courier performance, which can be effected by adverse weather, traffic conditions and other unforeseen circumstances. Deliveries typically take place between 7am and 7pm, Monday to Friday, although items may be delivered outside of these hours in busy periods.
If no one is home when delivery is attempted the courier will leave a calling card for you to rearrange delivery. If you do not arrange a specific date after the failed delivery attempt, the courier will automatically reattempt delivery on an alternative date. Should the second delivery attempt be unsuccessful due to you not being present or the goods are unsafe to deliver, the goods being unable to fit through the door/access point, or any other circumstances where the buyer is at fault, you the customer will be responsible for any further delivery charges which will be dependant on the size/number of items you have ordered.
A signature is required upon delivery. Please check your goods to ensure they are correct and free of damage. If you receive your item damaged, or with defective, incorrect or missing parts we will need to be notified within 48 hours of delivery. Please email us at email@example.com and include your order reference and a brief description of the issue along with photographic evidence. Failure to include any of the required information may result in your claim being rejected.
Once the goods have been signed for it is the buyers sole responsibility to ensure they are kept safe and undamaged in their original packaging (please see our returns policy for further information).
In the unlikely event that for any reason we cannot deliver your goods on any service described in the terms and on the estimated date, we reserve the right to amend, alter or postpone delivery accordingly and we will contact you as soon as we are made aware of any issues.

If we determine that the full item needs replacing we will arrange an exchange free of charge. Please be aware the faulty goods must be returned in their original packaging. If the goods are unused and the goods were received faulty then you may be entitled to a refund if you prefer.
All our items are covered by our 12 months manufacturer’s warranty, with the exception of our aluminium framed garden furniture which is covered by our 3 year warranty. The warranty is valid from the date of delivery and is activated automatically once you receive your goods. Please make sure you retain your proof of purchase as you may need this in the event of a claim. Our warranty covers the structural components of the furniture (such as frames and support brackets) and any issues that arise due to a manufacturing fault. It does not cover the goods becoming defective due to the buyer’s improper use (unless it is due to the manufacturer’s negligence), accidental damage, neglect, incorrect assembly or general wear and tear. It does not cover cushion covers, cushion fillings and glass. It covers the original purchaser of the goods only and is not transferrable or valid outside of the UK. Should you have a problem with your item please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org with your order reference, a brief description of the problem and photographic evidence so we can deal with your claim on an individual basis. Once the claim has been investigated Littleborough Furniture Company Ltd reserves the right to refuse any claim we find is not down to a manufacturing fault. Accepted claims will result in the repair or replacement of the item, or an exchange where applicable.
