When you order your perfect furniture from us, we will estimate how long the delivery will take, monitor your order and let you know if there are any delays. We offer free delivery to any home throughout Cornwall and when arranged in advance, can take away your existing furniture for a small fee. Before you buy from Julian Foye, one of our professional staff will inform you of all our specific policies and product guarantees.
One of our many policies includes our price match guarantee, where if you find the same product at a lower price, we’ll offer to price match provided that the item you have found is an identical product and the price includes VAT, the item is brand new, found from authorised retailer and provide us with adequate proof. Please contact one of our showrooms for further information.
Occasionally, circumstances change and you may find that you are unable to proceed with an order which you have placed. We will always try to be as understanding as possible but you must understand that a charge will have to be made. If you find that you need to cancel, please inform us as soon as possible so that we can contact the supplier.
If we cannot cancel the order, we will charge you 50% of the value of your order, to cover handling, stocking and disposal of the unplanned stock. Orders which involve non-standard sizes, or unusual colours or combinations, will incur a higher charge because of the difficulty of disposal. If we are successful in cancelling the order with our supplier, a cancellation charge of 25% will be made.
If your order is delayed, we hope that you will accept that it is worth waiting a little longer for your chosen product. If, however, when the forecast delivery date has passed, you decide that you wish to cancel your order, you have the right to do so – but you must give us “reasonable notice”. We interpret this as a period of 21 days, starting from the forecast delivery date, or from any revised forecast date which we have advised and you have accepted. During this period of notice you will allow us to complete the delivery if we are able, before your notice to cancel takes effect.*
*Generally, furniture is delivered to us on time but occasionally a supplier is unable to keep to the delivery estimate. We will monitor your order and, if we find that there is a delay, we will contact you to let you know.
*We cannot be held responsible for possible delays as a result of any Government action stemming from a pandemic or Brexit, we cannot allow cancellation of orders or offer any compensation for delays resulting from these.

Expected delivery lead times are shown on your Order Confirmation.
When we have your furniture, we will contact you to arrange delivery. It is helpful to have both a home and mobile telephone number; and an email address. We deliver during the working day and we have scheduled delivery days for each area. If you require delivery on a different day, or outside normal working hours, we may be able to arrange this but it might mean a delay and we may have to make a charge.
If you are not ready for the furniture when it comes, we will ask you to pay the balance. We will store the goods free of charge for up to six weeks.
We will pre-arrange a delivery day and give you an approximate time of day. Although we will try to arrive close to the time arranged, road conditions or delays incurred in prior deliveries might prevent this. If there is any change to our estimated arrival time, we will phone to let you know. You must be prepared for the possibility that we may arrive up to two hours later than the time arranged. If you prefer, we can arrange to phone you at your place of work, shortly before arrival, so that you can meet us at the house. Alternatively, we are happy to liaise with a key-holder or neighbour if you cannot be there in person – or you can leave a key with us at the showroom. Please ensure that you make known where the furniture is to be placed.
Your furniture will be delivered by our own staff, who will bring the furniture into the room in which it is to be used and unpack and assemble as required. Any packaging will be removed. Polythene, cardboard and polystyrene are collected at our warehouse to be recycled. Where appropriate, we will give you a briefing on the operation, care and maintenance of the product.
If ordering multiple items, your order will automatically be grouped into 1 order according to the longest lead time. If you would like the items delivered in a different way, please inform your sales person. Please note that you may be charged a separate delivery fee for each delivery. If you would like us to delay delivery to coincide with your renovations please inform your sales person. Please note we will try and accommodate all requests but we have very limited space in our warehouse so if you choose to delay your delivery, we reserve the right to charge a storage fee. It is very important that the items you have ordered are able to fit into your property without any alterations to your property or items purchased. Any alterations made to your property to complete the delivery will be your responsibility and at your cost. If we are unable to complete the delivery due to items not fitting into your property and the order is therefore cancelled, we reserve the right to charge 60% of the cancelled order value. Our standard delivery is using a 3t truck, so please ensure there are no access problems for this type of vehicle. We cannot be held responsible for any failed deliveries due to access problems, but we can plan accordingly (& use a smaller van) if we are informed prior to delivery. If we are unable to complete the delivery because there is no one there to receive the order – and we arrived within two hours of the time indicated – you will incur a re-delivery charge of £30. This will also apply if a re-delivery is necessary because the access route was not clear on the original delivery day.
*We reserve the right to charge if we need to need use our tower scaffolding to make the delivery
*If we believe the delivery using the tower scaffolding or a scissor lift will be in our opinion unsafe for our staff we will let you know and leave your furniture in a safe place on your property for you.
*If we need a scissor lift to deliver your furniture safely you will be responsible for its hire and fee payable.
