Frequently Asked Questions

Delivery / Orders information
Can I change the delivery address?
Yes – just contact us via email and we will change your delivery address. If you contact us after your order has left the couriers you may incur additional delivery costs, as the goods would need to be returned to our courier warehouse and re-booked and therefore this would be classed as a re-delivery and incur new delivery charges.
Can you take away my existing furniture?
Unfortunately, we do not offer this service which is why you should make sure that you have sufficient space in your home for your new furniture, so that it can be assembled in the right place upon delivery.
Do you assemble the furniture and take the packaging away?
Unfortunately, we do not assemble, although most of our furniture simply needs the legs attaching – please see the individual product pages for more information. Our delivery team also cannot take the packaging away. In the unlikely event you may need to return anything, this must be re-packaged using the original packaging, so please keep this until you are sure you are happy with your purchase.
Can I specify my delivery date/delay my order?

We cannot delay production once you have placed your order, but it is possible for our delivery company to hold this a little longer for you. However, if this is any longer than 3 weeks, you will incur storage charges as detailed below:

Up to 3 weeks after your estimated delivery date

no additional charge

3-6 weeks after your estimated delivery date

£50 per item

Over 6 weeks after your estimated delivery date

£20 per week, per item

3 months or over, after your estimated delivery date

your order will be disposed of and you will no longer be entitled to a refund

The delivery company will offer you a choice of dates and if they can accommodate your date requirements, then they will.

Do all deliveries arrive in the time specified?
The vast majority of our orders are despatched in accordance with our estimated dates. However, if you do live offshore or in the Scottish Highlands, your order will take longer. Please refer to our delivery information for further details.
Can I receive my order quicker than the website delivery dates?
Because we manufacture all our furniture to your specific order and we have a strict production schedule, we cannot produce any quicker than stated.
Is the payment information you provide to our store secure?
Yes, it is. Online security is extremely important to us, and you can be assured this is our priority.
Do we issue VAT invoices?
Yes, but we can only issue this after you have received your delivery. If you need a VAT invoice, just send us an email request at [email protected] and we will email this to you.
Can you get a VAT refund on furniture purchased at our store?
Our SLF24.co.uk store does not have the ability to operate as a retail seller. As a result, it is not possible to deduct the VAT from products purchased on our website.
What fees do we charge for product shipping?
All information regarding delivery and costs for each of the products can be found on our delivery information
Do I get a discount on delivery if I am ordering multiple items?
Unfortunately, the delivery cost is related to space in the van and not to the delivery address. So this is why we charge a delivery fee for each item and there are no savings if you are ordering more items.
Is it possible to pay on delivery or by cheque?
Unfortunately, we do not accept cheque payments. We also do not support the payment on delivery option.
Is it possible to place orders via telephone?
Orders can only be placed via the store’s website. We do not accept orders via telephone. If you are experiencing issues with placing an order, please feel free to contact us. We will help you go through the entire order process, step by step.
Order lead time – how long do you need to wait for your dream furniture?
On our store’s website, we provide the estimated completion time of every order. We do our best to make the stated time realistically feasible and to match your expectations. If you wish to know more about deliveries, please check delivery information
Is your data secure at our store?
Online security is extremely important to us and you can be assured this is our priority. We use the data you provide us with only for the purpose of learning what interests you the most and what products you prefer. Through this we want to offer you the best product quality possible.
Would you like to tell us more about delivery to your house or apartment?
Feel free to contact us. Any additional information you may have to help our delivery company find your house, just let us know and we can make sure they have information for when they deliver.
When will I know my confirmed delivery date?
The courier will contact you a couple of days before your estimated delivery dates to book the date with you. They will give a choice of dates to fit in with you and your schedule. Once you have confirmed the date, they will contact you the day before your delivery with an estimated time slot.
Would you like to know the status of your order?
We will send you a tracking link in your order update email (around 3-5 days after you have placed your order). We do try and keep you updated via email every step of the journey from order to shipment, but if you still require additional information, just contact us.
What if I am not at home on the date of the planned delivery?
You will be given a choice of dates from our delivery company, so don’t worry they won’t just turn up unannounced. Therefore there should be no reason why you wouldn’t be there. However, if due to unforeseen circumstances you are not at home when the courier arrives, your delivery will be returned to the couriers warehouse. With your consent, we can send the goods again; however, you may be charged additional shipping fees. We recommend that you plan the delivery of your goods carefully and if you think there may be any problems with your delivery, just let us know in advance and we can help re-arrange.
You have received a product, but there is a part missing, e.g. legs

Transporting furniture is not easy. We strive to ensure maximum safety of the transported products and legs are often stored inside the furniture piece. If a zipper lock is visible, then the legs are concealed inside.

If you still cannot locate them, just let our claims department know by clicking on this link and complete the form. Please include the required photos and give as much detail as possible to help us resolve the issue.

Have you received an incorrect item? What do you need to do now?
In the first instance, please contact us and our consultants will do all they can to resolve your issue.
My order arrived damaged – what now?

Any damages ideally need to be reported at time of delivery and if that isn’t possible, then within 24 hours of you receiving your order.

Please click on this link and complete a claims form. Please include the required photos and give as much detail as possible to help us resolve the issue.

Product / Ordering Information
Is the furniture assembled?
The vast majority of our sofas and chairs are assembled except for the legs/feet. This is to avoid them getting damaged in transit. So therefore you would just need to simply attach these when you receive it.
Do we have a showroom/retail store?
We are only an online company, so unfortunately, we do not have a showroom. This is how we keep our prices so low. It might be helpful to look at our Instagram page as there are lots of customer images there that might help you: https://www.instagram.com/slf24_sofas/ or you could look at our customer image gallery: https://slf24.co.uk/my-picture/
Is it possible to select any fabric or leg design for the furniture?
All our furniture is only available in the fabric/leg options as detailed on the individual product pages.
Can I have the furniture upholstered in my own custom fabric?
At this moment, we only supply furniture made with the fabrics indicated on our website. We strive to make the palette of material colours and textures as varied as possible so that everyone can find something to suit them and their interior design.
Can we provide material samples?
Yes, you can order swatches through our website, if you need to see any of the fabrics: https://samples.slf24.co.uk/. You can choose up to 6 samples and you should receive them approximately 5-7 days from receipt of payment. Fabric samples are free of charge, but you will need to pay £5 in advance for delivery costs. If you go ahead with an order, you will receive a voucher code for the £5 charge to be used against your purchase.
Can you explain further the difference between a left and right corner sofa/sofa bed?

A right-hand sofa has the long chaise part on the right as you are looking at it face on. So therefore, when you are sitting on it the long chaise part is to your left. The left-hand sofa is just vice versa.

Some of our sofas are universal corners though and this means you can choose the side you want the chaise to be when it is delivered as it is delivered in 2 parts, and you have to assemble.

Do we ever run out of stock?
The simple answer is no, as all our furniture is handmade to order, just for you.
Is our furniture covered by a warranty?
We give a 12-month warranty on all our furniture, which covers anything deemed to be a manufacturing fault by an independent furniture repair specialist.
Is the wood used in the furniture sustainably sourced?
Our suppliers for the wood - which is used in the frames and some legs - have FSC certification, which provides us, and you, with a guarantee that the wood we use comes from forests managed in a sustainable way. This means that every tree that is cut down is replaced with a new one. We use organic adhesives and eco-friendly water-based varnishes. The wood waste in the factory is turned into fuel – eco-friendly wood pellets – that are in turn used to heat the manufacturing plant and offices.
Do we offer payment plans?
The only payment plan we offer is through PayPal. That involves you setting PayPal Credit up directly with PayPal and your payment contract would be with them, not SLF24, but it would allow you to spread the cost over 4 months.
Can I have a VAT invoice?
Yes, it is possible for us to send you a vat invoice, but only after we have delivered the furniture to you. If you can send us an email request once you have received your sofa and we will send it over to you.
Can we take your existing furniture away?
Unfortunately, that is not a service we are able to offer currently.
How do I clean the furniture?
All our cleaning instructions are available to look at in the fabric specification on each of our furniture website pages.
Are there any extra hidden charges since Brexit?
Our sofas are made in Europe, but we are a UK company. You will not be charged any extra taxes since Brexit. The price you see on the website is the price you pay.
Can I buy spare parts ie. cushions/legs?
Unfortunately, this is not something we are currently able to offer.
Can I send you a picture of my new furniture for you to feature on the website?
Yes of course. We always love to see our furniture in real life situations as do our customers. Just email us an image to [email protected] and as a thank you we will send you a £10 refund.
