Smaller items are usually delivered within 5 working days, Monday to Friday, 7.30am – 6pm. Some couriers may deliver slightly earlier or later.
Once your item has left our warehouse, we’ll send you an email with tracking information.
Couriers we use for standard deliveries include Royal Mail, Hermes, DHL and DPD.
Larger items, including furniture and appliances, will either be delivered by a FIREHOUSE & Partners van or one of our approved suppliers.
See Delivery by our approved suppliers for goods delivered by external suppliers.
We cover the majority of the mainland UK with our van fleet, and when you place an order you’ll have the option to pick a delivery date and slot as you’re going through checkout.
We always offer a FREE 10-hour standard delivery slot for large items being delivered by Firehouse & Partners crews.
Free UK standard delivery takes from 3 to 5 working days, and the exact lead time we’ll offer you once we have received your order. The delivery timescale depends on your postcode and availability of delivery slots at that time.
The delivery slots are:
Monday to Friday 7am – 5pm
We’ll endeavour to contact you by text the night before your delivery to narrow your am or pm slot down to a 2-hour window, and we’ll confirm that on the day when the van leaves our warehouse.
We also offer next day delivery, as well as 2 and 4-hour delivery slots, for an additional charge – find out more here.
If you live in a Northern Ireland, highland, island or rural postcode, delivery may take longer than 7 working days. We won’t offer you a delivery slot during checkout, but our carrier will contact you after you place your order to arrange delivery. We always aim to deliver your order within 7 working days, but it’s subject to postcode and carrier availability. Check for your postcode in Delivery exceptions section below.
WHY IS THE DELIVERY TIME LONGER THAN I’D EXPECT?
Some of our products are made to order – so it’s made just for you and may take time before it’s ready to be sent to you.
We work with various approved suppliers, who help us offer you a wider range of products. These suppliers may offer different delivery times and options. Find more information on delivery by our approved suppliers here. Please wait until your delivery due time has passed before contacting us.
HOW WILL YOU ENSURE MY HIGH-VALUE ITEM IS DELIVERED SAFELY?
High-value items will need to be signed for. We’ll send you an email explaining how to track your item and letting you know when it will be delivered.
If no-one is available, the courier will attempt to leave the parcel with a neighbour. The courier will post a card through your door with further delivery instructions if they’re unable to complete delivery or if they leave the parcel with a neighbour.
The courier will attempt to make delivery and obtain a signature up to 3 times before the parcel is returned to our warehouse.
CAN YOU NOTIFY ME WHEN YOU’RE ON YOUR WAY?
For large items being delivered via a Firehouse & Partners van, we’ll endeavour to contact you by text the night before your delivery to narrow your slot down to a 2-hour window, and we’ll confirm that on the day when the van leaves our warehouse.
Our delivery crew will also try to call you at any time up to 30 minutes before they arrive.
WILL YOUR DELIVERY TEAM PUT MY ITEM IN THE RIGHT PLACE?
For delivery of large items, our delivery team will put your item as near as possible to the house, or garden. However, some items may be on a curbside delivery only.
WILL YOUR DELIVERY TEAM TAKE THE PACKAGING AWAY FOR ME?
If your item is being delivered by a Firehouse & Partners delivery team, they’ll gladly remove packaging at your request.
I’M WORRIED THE ITEM MAY NOT FIT THROUGH MY DOOR.
If the item is listed as fully assembled on the product page, before you make your order, check the item’s measurements (also on the product page) against those of your door.
You may need to arrange for your door to be removed to enable delivery for very large items, as neither we nor our approved suppliers are able to offer this service.
Some large items may be easier as they’re flat-packed for self-assembly. This information is shown on the product page.
If you’re unsure the item you’ve ordered will fit through the door, please call us to discuss your concerns on 01539766888, with your dimensions to hand.
I LIVE UP SEVERAL FLIGHTS OF STAIRS. DO I NEED TO TELL YOU?
Some of our items are very heavy and could be an issue if you suspect our delivery team may struggle to deliver to your address, call us to discuss any concerns on 01539766888 as soon as possible after placing your order.
MY ITEM IS NOW OUT OF STOCK, BUT I’VE PAID FOR IT. WHAT SHALL I DO?
If your item is out of stock, we’ll email you to let you know. If you’re happy to wait and the item comes back in stock within 28 days, you’ll be billed and the item will be shipped to you. If it’s still not available within 28 days, we’ll cancel your order and refund you.
If you’re not happy to wait, please contact Customer services to cancel your order.

If you order items with different despatch times, we’ll deliver them separately.

LARGER ITEM DELIVERY TIMESCALES TO REMOTE AREAS
There are a small number of postcodes, usually in remote areas, where we cannot guarantee delivery within our usual timescale and can’t offer next day delivery. Items will sometimes take more than 7 days; this is due to limited carrier availability in these areas. Our carrier will call you to arrange delivery after you’ve placed your order.
