Delivery and Returns
We offer a free Click & Collect service of large items from our warehouse in South London. Please indicate your preference in the checkout and we will let you know when your goodies are ready to collect.
When ordering multiple items, we will typically make one delivery when all items are in stock (there may be occasions when we deliver goods separately from different warehouses).
We offer free delivery on all orders over £1,500 to most locations in mainland Britain (northern Scotland excluded). For the isles and some of the Scottish peninsulas, we will need to provide a quote for delivery. If you are unsure, just add your chosen items to the basket, enter your postcode, and you will be either given a delivery charge or asked to call us for a quote.
For orders under our free delivery threshold: Small items are delivered by overnight courier from £5.95, and large items are delivered by our two-man team from £39.95.
For international deliveries, our prices do not include VAT or any other local taxes. Delivery charges will vary - the exact amount will be indicated when you add items to your shopping basket. If a rate is not automatically given, please do get in touch: [email protected].
Wherever you are, we can help arrange safe and prompt delivery.
Once in stock, small items are sent by overnight courier to most addresses in mainland Britain. The Highlands, isles and addresses over the Irish Sea take two days. Delivery is made to your door and will need signing for. If you would like delivery on a particular day, please let us know. We can offer delivery of overnight items on a Saturday or Sunday for an extra £9.95 to all addresses in mainland Britain except the Scottish Highlands.
Large items are delivered Monday-Friday by our two man delivery team to your room of choice (except armoires, which are delivered to ground floor only). They will be fully unpacked for your inspection, and the packaging left with you. Delivery to mainland Britain is typically within 2-3 weeks. Deliveries beyond mainland Britain may take longer and are usually not with a two man team, so they will not always be brought upstairs.
Please measure, measure, and then measure again! If our couriers have to bring an item back to us because it doesn't fit in your home, we will sadly have to charge the return fee that is listed on the page for that product.
Most of our beautiful products are made and carved by hand with love, skill and care in places like Indonesia. Because they are made so far away, delays can sometimes occur, but we do all we can to avoid this. We will let you know as soon as possible if a delay does occur as a result of shipping, customs, or hold-ups from our manufacturers, and our sales team will keep you updated on delivery time.
White Glove Service
If you would like your new furniture assembled (e.g. beds) and the packaging removed, our White Glove Service is £45. This should be booked before delivery and does not include the assembly and fitting of electrical items or attaching items to your walls. Just make sure any existing furniture you have is disassembled and/or out of the way before your delivery arrives.
If you need to get a large armoire upstairs, then some of our French armoires can be dismantled and then reassembled upstairs. The cost of this armoire service is an additional £75. There is a slight risk that the process may introduce some defects or damage, but we will carry out this work on a 'best endeavours' basis. The armoire will be strictly non-returnable once it has been dismantled. Before our delivery team carry out this service, you will be asked to examine the armoire to confirm it is in perfect condition, and to sign a waiver that confirms you agree not to hold us responsible for any damage or defects subsequently identified. It is extremely rare that any problems arise when this process is carried out.
Note: our delivery team will only take an armoire up or down a single flight of stairs. If you have specific access requirements please contact us.
At French Bedroom, we look forward to delivering your new bedroom furniture for you to enjoy.
Our specialist couriers invest time and resources planning delivery routes, allocating space on our delivery vehicles and in some cases making the journey the day before for harder to reach destinations. Missed deliveries unfortunately do come at a cost, which is why we ask for at least 24 hours’ notice should you no longer be able to receive goods on the day scheduled.
Why we charge for failed deliveries?
To offer a leading service to our customers, we subsidise delivery fees. On average, orders under £1,500 are subsidised by 60% and orders over £1,500 deliveries are free, which is a 100% subsidy from French Bedroom. If deliveries are cancelled at the last minute this leading service quickly becomes harmful to our operations and delivery overheads. Therefore, if you cannot make your delivery slot, please call us immediately on 01444415430 to have your delivery rescheduled to the next available route in your area.
Deliveries cancelled less than 24 hours before the allocated delivery slot, or missed on the day will incur a redelivery charge of £39.95. This amount will need to be collected prior to your delivery being rescheduled.
We hope you are delighted by the pieces you buy, but we know that sometimes you might have a change of heart.
You can return your order to us within 45 days, provided it is in the original condition, with any labels intact, unused and unwashed.
In the festive spirit, returns or exchanges on non-furniture items will be accepted until Friday 12th January 2024, for all orders placed in November & December.
Please keep all packaging as unfortunately we will won’t be able to offer a refund if your order is returned without the original packaging (please keep the packaging if you have a White Glove delivery).
The only items excluded are bespoke items and mattresses (for hygiene reasons). This right of cancellation does not apply to trade customers.
Royal Mail Returns
For smaller home accessory items delivered by overnight courier, we offer a Royal Mail returns option if your parcel weighs less than 20kg and is within the following dimensions 61cm x 46cm x 46cm. You can create a returns label through our Royal Mail Tracked Returns Portal here. Please note your Order Ref number can be found at the top of the returns docket included within your parcel, this is not your ‘1000’ order number.
For parcels which weigh, or measure over the outlined limits please refer to the Delivery & Returns tab on the product page of your item for more information on how to make a return.
We cannot make arrangements for returns from addresses outside the UK and Ireland, so you will need to make your own arrangements if you are overseas.
If your particular product is not available for returns via Royal Mail, we can only arrange for your return to be collected, between Monday-Friday only. Please check the Delivery and Returns section on each product page to see the exact return courier charge payable for that product.
Alternatively you can use your own choice of courier to return your goods, please do ensure you have adequate insurance.
We do all we can to protect our items in transit, but sadly damages can sometimes occur.
If you've received your delivery by overnight courier then please let us know within 7 days if you spot damage (and before installing electrical items).
If you've received items via our furniture delivery crew and you spot damage then the items will be returned with the drivers and a replacement will be re-delivered to you. You'll be asked to inspect your goods and sign a Proof of Delivery Note. We cannot accept responsibility for any damage reported to us after you've signed the Proof of Delivery note - so please do check your goodies really thoroughly!
All products come with a one year manufacturer's guarantee, which we will honour in the form of parts and labour.
