How will my furniture be delivered to me?
Depending on the size and weight of your order it may be delivered by our own drivers or by a selected courier on behalf of Sustainable Furniture (UK) Ltd.
Generally, smaller items such as bedside cabinets, home accessories, parasols and cushions are delivered as a parcel. Larger and heavier items such as assembled picnic benches, assembled garden seats, teak root furniture, French furniture and dining sets may be delivered by pallet.
PLEASE NOTE: Where items are delivered by pallet, the couriers are only under obligation to deliver it to the outside of your premises and it is your responsibility to transport the goods internally within your property. The driver will not position or assemble your delivery unless you pay an additional fee which needs to be arranged and paid for prior to the delivery - please ask regarding this service.
I’ve placed an order online, what happens next?
After the payment has been processed you will receive an email confirmation of the order. Goods remain the property of Sustainable-Furniture (UK) Ltd until payment has been received in full (cleared funds to our Bank account and including VAT).
Once your order has been dispatched you will receive an email notifying you that the goods are on their way to you. On large orders (sent by pallet), you will receive a phone call with an estimated time of delivery. For smaller items you will receive an email with a tracking number.
Do I need to be at home to receive my delivery?
It is advisable to be at home to accept your delivery, especially if you have ordered larger items such as dressers, bedroom furniture, dining tables, sofas and teak root furniture. If it is very difficult for you to be at home then please discuss this with one of our customer services team. Arrangements can sometimes be made to leave the item in the garage, back garden, shed etc.
What do I need to do when I receive my items?
When you receive delivery of your order you are responsible for checking the goods whilst the delivery driver is present and before signing for them. Whilst the driver is with you, unpack the items. After unpacking, if there is any damage to the goods at all, then you must sign for them as ‘RECEIVED DAMAGED’.

Hints and tips of an easy delivery:
It sounds obvious, but checking that your new furniture will fit through your door is very important!
Check the measurements of the furniture you have ordered on our website and make sure that you have adequate access through doorways and into its final position.
This is particularly important with our Teak Root furniture, including dining and coffee tables. These beautiful roots are entirely natural, but that also means they can be quite obscure shapes. If you have narrow doorways or a layout that may cause difficulties please call our customer services team and we can advise on the best root to suit your needs.
