a) We aim to deliver all orders within 7 - 10 working days of placing your order.
If the estimated delivery time is longer than 10 - 14 days and we can obtain a confirmed delivery date from our supplier on out of stock items we will give the option to wait for the order or process a full refund. If we cannot get a firm delivery time on new orders we will process a full refund and the item will be marked out of stock until dates can be confirmed.
Delivery times on out of stock items vary from supplier to supplier, dates are given in good faith based on the best information we have at the time of order, but please be aware these dates are subject to change.
Although we do carry extensive stocks not all products are in stock at all times, if you do require a quick delivery service or a more accurate delivery date please contact us to check stock positions prior to ordering.

d) Once your rug is ready to be despatched a tracking e-mail will be sent to you allowing you to track your delivery status. We are reliant on our couriers fulfilling the delivery and therefore can not be held responsible for any error on their part. On the rare occasion that a delivery date is missed or a delivery error is made by our courier please contact us and we will do our best to resolve the problem.
e) If delivery is attempted and you are not available to sign for the goods our couriers may attempt to deliver your order to a neighbour. If you do not wish for your order to be left with a neighbour please contact us with this request and we will instruct our couriers to deliver to your address only, this information can be typed into the comments box on the checkout page.
f) If our couriers are not able to deliver your order they will leave a card through your door asking you to contact them to arrange re-delivery on a different weekday and will hold your package at your local delivery depot for 5 working days. You must contact the couriers within this period to re-arrange delivery. Faliure to do this may result in your order being returned to ourselves.

We do our very best to ensure that the majority of our rugs are in stock and ready to be despatched, or in stock with our supplier and can be delivered within the estimated delivery dates on the product page or delivery information page, however occasionally an item may be out of stock. If this is the case we will notify you by e-mail with an estimated delivery date for your chosen rug, you have the choice to wait for the rug or cancel the order and we will process a full refund. If we cannot obtain a firm delivery date from our supplier we will process a full refund and cancel the order.
