You are obliged to provide any required parking permits in advance of the delivery. If you have any doubts that the furniture will fit up stairways, through doors or any awkward or restrictive spaces it is vital that you seek advice. We can offer an access check for specific items of furniture. This involves our delivery team making an appointment and inspecting your property to confirm if access is possible. There is a charge for this service. You must inform us of any vehicle access issues or parking restrictions at the delivery address.

Cancellations

Our legal obligation to you, our customer, under the new European Directive incorporated into UK Law by The Consumer Protection (Distance Selling) Regulations 2000, is to grant you the unconditional right to cancel your order from the date of the contract and up to 7 days after placing the order. You may cancel an order by emailing sales@thelongeststay.com please remember to include your order number.

Many of our products are made-to-order goods of high value. Notice is given with the relevant product specifications that orders for these goods are considered CUSTOM ORDERS and may only be cancelled strictly within 1 week of ordering, as work on the product will, by then, have started. The majority of our products are bespoke items and so in the event that having placed an order you wish to cancel it, we will unfortunately have to charge a cancellation fee of 50% of the value of the order plus any other delivery or collection fee incurred.

Returns

When you return a product to us because you have cancelled the Contract between us within the seven-day cooling-off period, we will process the refund due to you as soon as possible and, in any case, within 30 days of the day you have given notice of your cancellation. In this case, we will refund the price of the product in full, including the cost of sending the item to you. However, you will be responsible for the cost of returning the item to us. For any other reason (for instance, because you have notified us in within 7 days that you do not agree to any change in these terms and conditions or in any of our policies, or because you claim that the Product is defective), we will examine the returned Product and will notify you of your refund via e-mail within a reasonable period of time.

Please note that bespoke furniture, special orders, flat-packed items that have been assembled, made-to-order items and personalised items can only be returned or exchanged if faulty.

Please note we do not accept returns from international orders unless the items are faulty. Faulty items must be returned by the same method as they were delivered and we will not accept return packages that have import duty or tax charges applied.
