Deliveries

If not already stated delivery times and prices quoted are for UK mainland only. Normal deliveries are carried out between Monday and Friday. There is also an option for saturday deliveries but please note this refers to packages under 20kg and postage must be purchased seperately through the addtional poatage options or through the sales team. For delivery to Highlands, Channel Islands and overseas including international sales please contact us for the accurate shipping costs before you order.

We will process your order as quickly as possible and aim to dispatch items in stock within 1 - 3 working days of accepting your order, however please allow up to 7 working days for your purchases to arrive. Please note that delivery estimates are not guaranteed. Some products are internationally sourced and may take several weeks to be dispatched to us. We therefore give an indication of estimated delivery times in the product information box. Please note that customers must take into account national holidays to allow for correct delivery times particularly around christmas and summer when some of the european factories close. If time is an issue or to avoid any disappointment please contact us directly for more details on manufacturer holiday periods or to find out if an item is definitely in stock before purchasing. In the event of multiple orders each product may be dispatched individually to prevent delays to the entire order. Any requests which are different to our standard delivery terms must be agreed on or as soon after order as possible. Please contact A White Room by email info@awhiteroom.com or telephone 01282 862626. 

Please note that from the moment a carrier attempts to deliver the goods they are then the customer’s full responsibility. The customer must also accept the goods when they are ready to be delivered unless we reserve the right to A. charge again for delivery, B. charge the amount for the return of goods after a failed delivery attempt C. issue storage charges based on us keeping hold of goods until a customer is ready to accept delivery.

Please note that once a customer signs for a delivery, they are accepting they have recieved the delivery in good condition. If in any doubt on delivery It is imperative you sign for all items as 'goods unchecked' as simply signing your name for on the couriers manifest is signing that you have received items in perfect condition and this will void any claim for loss or damage. It is the customer's responsibility to do this. Additionally if you notice any visual damage to the outside packaging this must be noted and written down at the same time of signing for the delivery. Please note written indication of damage on signature on the proof of delivery sheet is absolutely essential in order for us to validate any claim. Any failure to do this will negate any customer claim.

In the event of bad weather, road conditions or other unforeseen circumstances everything will be done to inform and update customers of delays and schedules, in these circumstances we cannot be responsible for carrier delays.

Deliveries do not include unpacking, assembly or installation. Standard kerbside delivery consists of a kerbside collection and drop off only, however, A White Room can offer a full installation service or 2 man delivery as long as there is a prior agreement. The cost will be subject to the size of an item and also the delivery location. If you would like a quotation in advance, please contact A White Room directly by email or phone 01282 862626.

On such orders please email info@awhiteroom.com or telephone us on 01282 862626 at the showroom and we can offer the facility of taking 50% of the total as a deposit, with a further 50% balance falling due for payment prior to dispatch of goods from our warehouse.
