If you require delivery by or on a specific date, please contact us either via email or telephone  to see if it is possible for us to accommodate your requirements.

All delivery dates and times quoted are approximate. Whilst every effort will be made to accommodate your requirements no guarantee of time can be given. In some cases, the delivery times we quote are subject to us or our suppliers having the item(s) in stock. On popular lines we occasionally run out. When this happens, we will let you know as soon as possible to avoid any inconvenience.

We will select the most appropriate carrier for your goods to ensure that your order is transported in the best possible way. This means that items in your order may arrive at different times.

If for any reason there is a problem delivering any part of our order we will contact you as soon as possible with the best information we have on expected delivery dates.

Delivery Charges

Our delivery charges are currently free of charge on all orders. You can see the delivery charges displayed on the right hand side of the shopping cart page.

The standard delivery charges apply to deliveries within the mainland UK excluding the Highlands and Islands of Scotland, Cornwall and Devon. If you wish to place an order for delivery to the Highlands and Islands of Scotland, Cornwall, Devon or overseas (including Northern Ireland and the Channel Islands) please contact us either via email or telephone to confirm the delivery charge for the order – this may well be higher than the standard charges due to the cost of delivering to these locations.

In the case where the customer insists on part delivery for whatever reason any additional costs incurred by us will be charged to the customer.

Where a delivery date has been agreed with our carriers but the customer is not present or unwilling to take delivery we reserve the right to charge the customer again for the total value of the delivery of the goods unless otherwise specified.

We will not accept claims for inconvenience, compensation or cancellation, etc caused by unexpected or unavoidable delays in delivery.

Delivery Terms

Where goods are delivered by our in-house courier, the courier will assist you wherever reasonably possible to open the goods and check their condition, and will assist you wherever possible in bringing the goods into the delivery address. However, moving the goods from room to room and/or up or down stairs will be undertaken only at the driver’s discretion. Our driver is under no obligation to do this and will not be insured under these circumstances. Our in-house courier will usually be able to dispose of the packaging should you wish them to do so, dependent on vehicle load and size.

When you place an order you must inform us of any access restrictions or circumstances which may prevent successful delivery being completed.

Where goods are delivered by a third-party courier, the delivery will take place under the terms and conditions of that courier, which will usually mean a doorstep delivery service only.

Deliveries requiring special requirements can sometimes be made but will be at an additional cost to the customer.

It is the responsibility of the customer to ensure that an authorised adult is at the delivery address to take delivery of the goods and sign for their receipt. Where such a person is unavailable, we reserve the right to delay delivery of the goods until such a person is in attendance. Where delivery is made by a third-party courier, another delivery attempt will usually be made on the next working day. Where delivery is by our in-house courier, another delivery attempt will be made on the earliest date possible given the courier’s working schedule.

It is your responsibility to ensure that any goods you order will fit into your home and its proposed final location and through the access areas at the delivery address: we recommend that you measure all access areas and the room where the items will be placed, bearing in mind that the packaging of the goods will mean that the dimensions of the boxed goods are larger than the measurements on the website. The furniture is handmade and all measurements are approximate. We are unable to refund orders which cannot be delivered due to access restrictions, or items that do not fit the room.

Delivery Insurance

Your goods are fully insured until they reach the delivery address, whereby the insurance liability falls upon yourself the customer.

Acceptance of Goods

All goods are quality checked by Dooley’s Furniture before despatch and wherever possible you will be given the opportunity to check the condition of the goods on receipt. An authorised adult must be available at the address to check your goods, sign and acknowledge receipt in a safe and satisfactory condition.

It is the responsibility of the customer to make a note on the delivery paperwork of any damage or defect of the goods, neither the carrier nor Dooley’s Furniture will be held responsible for any damage not noted on the delivery paperwork.

Where the customer has marked on the delivery paperwork “unchecked” but every opportunity has been given to check the goods please be aware that Dooley’s Furniture cannot be held responsible for any damages found after the receipt of the order.


Cancellation will not be accepted if goods have been reserved, stored or dispatched by us or by our suppliers.

To cancel an order, please contact us in writing by letter or email within seven days of placing your order. All emails will be acknowledged within 48 hrs of receipt. For letters this will take slightly longer.
