IMPORTANT Delivery Information: All our furniture is very well packed prior to delivery. Customers are asked to check the integrity of the packing prior to signing for receipt, if the packaging is seen to be breached, this should be photographed in the company of the carrier. If assembly is required, when unpacking, each part should be checked for damage prior to assembly, as replacements due to damage in transit cannot be agreed after the furniture has been assembled. Where tables are involved and legs or pedestals need to be fitted, care should be taken and a protective floor covering should be laid down, before the table is placed top down on the floor, this to ensure no scratching to the table top takes place.
– Please inspect table top for any damage before assembly and it’s important that all packaging is kept if a table exchange is required.
– You must inform us as soon as you discover any damage by calling us on 01483 271236 or sending an email to [email protected] with a photograph of the damage.

7.4 Please be aware that hardwood is a natural product and that slight timber movements are a possibility, albeit a rare one. Although every effort is made to maintain conditions when shipping, the extreme climate changes sometimes cause slight swelling on doors or drawers, which makes them stiff to open. It is important not to return or refuse the items if this is the case as usually this problem will rectify itself once the timbers adjust to their new environment. Alternatively, you may find that simply swapping drawers around is a quick fix solution. If the movement does not settle, then you may need to sand or shave a small amount from a drawer or door. Cranleigh Furniture Ltd will not deem stiff drawers or doors as defective or faulty. Any adjustments need to be undertaken by the customer. However, if you do not wish to undertake any adjustments, you can return the items under the 7 day money back policy.
