We have tried to answer any questions you might have int he list below.

If you have any other questions, why not try our chatbot, this is updated far more frequently and gets questions from our website as well as our social media channels and contains far more information than we could reasonably list here.

Our quote form and and booking process is so simple and quick, we recommend you give it a tryor watch our simple video to ssee how it works.

  1. Can I get a quote for building my furniture online
    Yes you can, would you like to start now? click here.
  2. I wish to cancel or amend a booking.
    Yes you can, just reply to the confirmaiton email you received for your appointment.
  3. I wish to make a complaint, how do I contact you
    If you require remedial work, we can arrange this, if you have a formal complaint we have a process that deals with this, do you require Remedial Work or to Register a Formal Complaint. All of the information about how to do this is found in your confirmation email.
  4. I need help assembling furniture
    We can help with all types of flat pack furniture and many other items.
  5. Do you install fitted bedroom furniture"
    We do not scribe panels to the wall or cut down plinths and cornices, because we do not carry the right tools to do this type of work.
  6. Is it safe to purchase furniture online
    Yes it is very safe to buy furniture online.
  7. Do you remove waste packaging - cardboard etc
    A waste carriers licence is required to legally remove waste and track waste disposal, this is costly to do, since the law was changed in 2006. We are no longer able to do so.
  8. Do you offer a kitchen or bathroom fitting service?
    No we do not install fitted kitchens or fitted bedrooms as we do not carry the right tools.
  9. Will you modify furniture to fit my room?
    Any modification of furniture will invalidate the manufacturers guarantee and possibly its compliance to British Standards (safety), so we will not do this.
  10. What if the furniture is damaged?
    If the furniture is damaged before we start you will need to take it up with the supplier. It is easy to spot as there are often tell tale signs of damage on the boxes.
  11. Do you have a minimum call out fee?
    Yes it is currently £50
  12. How much room do you need to build my furniture
    Generally if the item is lying flat on the ground, we require at least 30cm or 12 inches extra in each direction. If space is an issue let us know when we provide the quote.
  13. How long will it take to build the furniture?
    The time it takes to build furniture varies enormously. Ideally we need the supplier name, the product name and its part number, or an internet link.
  14. What if there are bits are missing?
    We carry limited spares for common components, but generally in our 16 years of experience, parts tend to be there.
  15. What if I am not happy with the furniture after you have completed it?
    If you are unhappy any way we will try to resolve it before leaving. If you notice something after we have gone, let us know and we will sort it out.
  16. What if I live in a remote location?
    Let us know where you are, we have commercial work all over the UK and can often respond to many remote locations even if we do not have someone nearby.
  17. Do you provide service on the Isle of white, Isle of man, Hebrides, Shetlands, Jersey or Guernsey?
    No sorry we only cover mainland Britain
  18. Where do you operate?
    We operate all over the UK in England, Scotland and Wales.
  19. Why have I received several quotes?
    You will only get more than one quote if you have asked us to do more than one job. This can happen if you want a disassembly doing at one place and a reassembly doing elsewhere.
  20. Do you reassemble / dismantle furniture?
    Yes we do, send us a photo of what you have, so we can see what needs doing.
  21. Can my skirting boards be trimmed?
    We do not remove skirting boards or cut them down. If an item needs to be attached to the wall, we will use discrete wooden blocks to make up the difference.
  22. Do you perform IKEA hacks on furniture?
    If it is something simple like a different suppliers handles because they are nicer of course, but otherwise we do not modify furniture in any way
  23. I am moving house and need my furniture moved, can you help?
    We can disassemble furniture, but we cannot move it for you.

    It is too expensive to provide this type of service, Ikea will deliver any size of order if you order online or over the phone for £29.
