We have an excellent courier for furniture who will collect your purchase from us and contact you direct to arrange delivery. You will pay him on arrival. He uses plenty of blankets and straps to look after your item. He works alone so would need help unloading if the item is large or heavy. We can arrange a two man service if required. The price generally means delivery to the ground floor. We will need your post code to give an accurate quote for delivery
We use state-of-the-art water borne lacquers as used by manufacturers. They have been certified to FIRA Standard 6250 for surfaces in heavy/severe use.The finishing process we have developed maintains the timber's colour and warmth and enhances figure, grain definition and chatoyance. On Antiques we use traditional French polishing methods.
