In line with guidance from the British Retail Consortium we have significantly altered the way in which we process and deliver goods in order to meet strict social distancing measures. Our deliveries will be performed by our delivery teams or third-party couriers, who will enter your home whilst observing social distancing at all times. All delivery teams will be equipped with personal protection equipment and adhere to a strict hygiene regime.
In advance of your delivery, you will be asked to confirm that no one in your home has symptoms of Covid-19 or is self-isolating. If this is the case, your delivery will be rescheduled for a later time. Prior to your delivery, we will ask you to clear the route into the room of your choice, enabling our crew to quickly and efficiently deliver your new goods. We will also ask

When and how we deliver
This will depend on the product purchased and you will be advised by email of the estimated delivery time and the method of delivery. The Place for Homes Ltd will do all that it reasonably can to meet the date given for delivery. In the case of unforeseen circumstances, beyond the control of The Place for Homes Ltd, the customer will be contacted to agree an alternative date.
The majority of our products will be delivered via specialist furniture carriers. This is a one or two man service (depending on the items ordered).* You will receive a telephone call / text and / or email from the carrier at least 48 hours before the planned delivery to agree a date and time (usually am or pm). Deliveries will take place Monday to Friday (excluding Bank Holidays) and must be signed for.
You will be asked to inspect the goods for damage or faults and sign to accept the delivery. It is your responsibility to inspect your goods upon receipt and to reject or mark clearly on the delivery paperwork if the goods are damaged or there is a visible fault.
It is your responsibility to ensure that goods will fit and pass through all doors, hallways, paths and steps up to the property etc. In order to minimise the likelihood for damage it is your responsibility to ensure that access routes are clear, and floors are covered to prevent damage. We cannot accept responsibility for any damage caused to your home or goods.
For carrier deliveries you may be offered the option of paying a small extra charge for a premium delivery service. For example, your delivery will be made on a day and time specified or for your item to be unpacked and packaging to be taken away. All deliveries must be inspected & signed for.
* Where, in the opinion of our delivery crew, there is a problem with access, either due to size or weight issues then delivery will be completed to the customer’s door only. If you have concerns over access please contact us on 01446 772927 or by email on firstname.lastname@example.org where we will endeavour to make suitable arrangements with you.
