What is the minimum rental period?

You can rent our furniture for as little as one day. Naturally the longer the rental contract, the less you pay per week or month. As long as your overall rental charge at the end of your rental period exceeds £1140 (including VAT) and 8 furniture items, we can help you.

How quickly can I have my rental furniture?

Our streamlined process allows us to minimise stress and maximise efficiency, often installing our furniture for our clients within 24 hours of a contract signature. Please note delivery is subject to passing our Identity and Credit Check Procedure.

What standard of furniture should I expect?

All of our furniture is carefully selected for its stylish design and high-quality craftsmanship. We only provide top quality items that are built to last. Although some items may not be brand new, they will always be in showroom condition.

Soft furnishings comply with The Furniture and Furnishings (Fire)(Safety) Regulations 1988 and are for domestic use unless otherwise stated on the product description. If you require Crib 5 compliant items please do contact us for further guidance.

Will I have to unpack everything?

Absolutely not – not only do we deliver, we fully install. Our uniformed installation team will put the items exactly where you want them and install down to the finer details; TVs tuned and beds made.

I’m relocating – can I get my furniture delivered before I move?

Absolutely. The delivery and installation of your furniture can coincide with your relocation schedule, often before you arrive.

How can I pay?

However is best for you! We accept bank transfer and all major credit and debit cards.

One month’s rental payment* plus the delivery and collection charge is due prior to your order being delivered. A dilapidation deposit is also required prior to delivery and this is held against any damage that may occur during the rental period, please note we accept signs of normal wear and tear. On-going monthly payments will conveniently be made by Direct Debit.

Will my items be insured?

We understand these situations can be unpredictable, so simply let us know as soon as you can and we will be more than happy to extend your contract on a weekly ad hoc basis.
