Delivery Information

Orchid endeavours to offer a date to deliver furniture (in stock items) within twenty working days from purchase and smaller items within 5 working days of purchase, so long as items are in stock. If the delivery date offered is not accepted we will offer an alternative date, however the next availbable date may not be within 20 days of purchase. All purchases must be paid in full prior to delivery. All deliveries must be signed for. It should also be noted that goods have been checked. If there are signs of damage to the goods, or the packaging, upon delivery, this should be noted with the delivery signature. It should also be noted with the signature if the goods have NOT been checked.

Orchid must be notified immediately should the customer not wish to accept delivery.

Small delivery items

Smaller items will be delivered by Royal Mail and will require a signature upon receipt. Orchid should receive returns or be notified of non-delivery, or the intention to return items, within 14 days of receipt. If items cannot be delivered, Royal Mail will leave a notification card for re-delivery or collection from a local Royal Mail depot. When couriers are employed to deliver parcels, including Myhermes and DPD Local, customers willl be advised when the courier has collected the order and a Tracking number will be supplied.

Large delivery items

UK delivery of non-postal items, such as fragile items, or larger pieces of furniture will be delivered by arrangement at the time of purchase. Charges of £35 for small furniture and £75 for larger pieces will be applied to deliveries to UK mainland addresses, regardless of the number of items in each delivery. Please contact Orchid for delivery charges to non-mainland addresses. To avoid delivery charges, pieces may be collected from Orchid’s stores.


Delivery process & times

Furniture deliveries will be made on weekdays only, within normal office hours. If the deivery is by the Orhicd team then a 2 hour deivery sloto n a confirmed date will be allocated. The driver will call 30 minutes before his estimated arrival time. Orchid reserves the right to use a sub-contracted delivery company, in this instance assembly of furniture and removal of packaging is not included in the purchase and delivery price. When signing for receipt of an item, please state whether the item has been checked. Courier companies presume that signed for goods have been checked – should damage be found after signing then compensation cannot be claimed. For stock items, or bespoke items on order, arrival times in the UK are approximate. Upon arrival, pieces will be checked and upon receipt of any balance payment due, a convenient delivery time will be arranged.

If using Orchid personnel packaging will be removed, courier companies will not assemble any furniture.


Please check, prior to arranging delivery, that both access to the building and the designated room will allow access for the furniture. Check ceiling heights of passages, corners, doorways & stairways as well as width & depth.

if you require delivery to any floor, other than ground level, this should be requested at the time of arranging delivery. Please also notify us of the location and number of any lifts of staircases, (internal or external) which will be involved in the delivery process.

Excepting some dining tables, Orchid's furniture is NOT knock-down.

It is the customer’s responsibility to measure correctly, including all access, prior to purchase. The customer is responsible for any item which does not fit into the property, or room, for which it was intended.
