Due to their intimate nature, all mattresses will be delivered sealed in clear plastic wrapping that will allow for inspection.

It is your responsibility to return the items to our store at Unit 11 Lake Business Centre, Tarriff Road, London, N17 0YX in a good condition. However Furniture Domestic Direct recognise that many customers do not have the means to do this, and so will arrange collection during normal business hours (Monday to Friday) if requested. In such circumstances a charge of up to 25% of the price of the furniture will be made to cover the cost of collecting the items. This charge will be calculated according to the number of items to be returned, availability of a delivery vehicle, your location and complexity of removal.
