We make every effort to display the colour of the furniture as accurately as possible.

Before you place an order
If you decide you would like to place an order with HSL by speaking to one of our sales advisors, please have the following information ready as it will help us process your order, however, we will be delighted to answer any queries you may have. Here are some of the most common questions for you to consider:
• Can access be gained easily for the furniture to be delivered? – are the doors wide enough, are there any awkward stairs, lift or passageways?
• Will the furniture fit in the room?
• Which range are you interested in?
• Which items from the range do you want to order? Please note that if you are thinking of buying extra items such as a footstool or chair at a later date, there may be a slight colour shade variance. It is therefore best to order all the furniture you require at the same time
• What colour would you like the furniture in?
• How would you like to pay for the furniture?
Acknowledgement and acceptance of your order
We reserve the right to refuse the fulfillment of any order in the event of an unsatisfactory verification of your order.
It is important that you appreciate and understand that if accepted, an order is a legally binding contract. Your statutory rights, including any cancellation rights, are unaffected.
If you place an order with HSL, we will send all your paperwork by 1st class post to arrive within 3 working days of receipt and approval of your order.
Processing your order and delivery dates
You will be informed of the likely approximate length of time until delivery at the point of order. Once your order is confirmed as available for delivery we will contact you to agree definite arrangements for the date of delivery. Where possible we will deliver on the first available delivery in your area as we are unable to store your furniture. Every effort is made to see that the approximate delivery date is accurate, but on rare occasions the manufacture of your furniture may be delayed through circumstances beyond our control. We will, of course, make every effort to keep you informed.
Delivery and installation
Delivery is free on all products and includes an installation service for products that require it (electrically adjustable chairs and beds). This service is only available to the UK mainland. Delivery lead times are dependent on the product type and stock status. Please allow for longer delivery times during the Easter, Spring Bank and Christmas periods due to factory holidays.
If you wish your order to be delivered outside the UK Mainland we will be happy to provide you with a personal delivery quotation. Please contact our sales team on 01924 507 007. Please note that HSL will not be liable for any issue related to its products once the item is delivered outside of the United Kingdom.

Orders received before 12pm will be delivered within 2 working days. The service is available for UK mainland delivery addresses only. The service is not available from 16/12/14 to 04/01/15 inclusive. The 48 Hour delivery service is available on selected items only. Guardsman fabric protection is not available on items in the 48hr Express service. Restrictions apply, subject to order status and depending on product availability. For 48hr Express delivery payment is required in full at the point of sale. Due to the speed of the service, the standard cooling off period does not apply to items in the 48hr delivery programme.
On the day of delivery, please ensure that the delivery team can gain easy access to the room that the furniture is going into. Please make sure that the area you want the furniture placed is cleared. On a 2-man delivery service, our delivery team will also unpack your furniture, install it in the room of your choice and if you wish we will remove all packing materials from your home and recycle wherever possible. On an express and/or 1-man delivery service, delivery will be to your door only. To make sure you are completely satisfied with your items the delivery team will ask you to sign for your items once they have been delivered.
On delivery of your new HSL furniture, HSL can take away your old pieces on a like-for-like basis and, where possible, recycle them. This service is hassle-free and eco-friendly, and is FREE for your old bed and mattress when you purchase an HSL bed and mattress combination (excluding items from the Cornwall range). For other HSL items, this is available with a small service charge of just £60. Please note responsible disposal is available in mainland UK only, and while it does apply to items with 48hr delivery, the collection will be arranged for a date after delivery.

On our 48hr Express and 7-14 day delivery service products, full payment is required with initial order.
If HSL have agreed that you can pay for the balance of your order by card on delivery, any outstanding payments should be made before the delivery and installation of the furniture will take place.
In accordance with the Consumer Contracts (Information, Cancellation and Additional Charges) Regulations 2013, telephone, website and postal ordering customers can cancel an order within 14 days of delivery for a full refund providing that the item has not been used beyond the handling necessary to see whether the goods are as expected, and has been returned within 14 days of cancellation. Customers should notify HSL in writing of their cancellation, with full details of the order in question (including items, date and relevant name and address information). Cancellation forms are provided in the catalogue pack and online here if required.
Distance selling regulations only apply to your order if the goods have not been custom made to your specification or if you have not examined the product in and purchased in one of our showrooms.
Should you wish to return the goods it is your responsibility to take good care of the furniture. You are the owner of the furniture once it has been delivered to you and you are liable for any loss or damage. Failure to take reasonable care may result in a claim against you. To minimise the risk of any such claim we ask that you return the goods in appropriate packaging such as to prevent damage in transit.
Due to their intimate nature, all mattresses will be delivered sealed in clear plastic wrapping that will allow for inspection. Any mattresses that have been unsealed will be deemed as having been used. Therefore they cannot be returned for any reason other than because they are not as described or are not of satisfactory quality.
For telephone, website and postal ordering customers, HSL will issue refunds within 14 days of receipt of your notification to cancel. HSL reserves the right to deduct monies where goods show signs of unreasonable use leading to diminished value, including wear and tear or damage where the item has not just been checked but used.
HSL is committed to go to great lengths to ensure that everything we sell is of the highest quality. We offer a 1-year guarantee on everything we make and on products that we have exclusively sourced from our supplier partners, which rises to 5 years on electrically-adjustable chairs and beds.
The guarantee starts from the date of delivery and offers cover against manufacturing defects on the construction of the frame and frame springs. This also covers your items against any defects which may arise, under normal use, through faulty factory workmanship, including sofabed and recliner mechanisms.
Products bought with Guardsman Stain Protection are also protected for 5 years against everyday spills and stains (for more details, please see in store or contact 01924 507 007.
