Terms & Conditions

Terms and Conditions

These terms and conditions apply for online and store purchases.

Futon Company has been in business for over 40 years and for the most part we owe our continued success to being able to provide what you, the customer, really want. In our determination to ensure that you get a good service, our terms and conditions are shown below. Please read these terms and conditions carefully. By submitting an order you are agreeing to a binding contract with us with these terms and conditions.

Prices

The prices of the goods are as quoted on the website/app and in store, on the date the customer’s order is placed subject only to technical error for which Futon Company shall not be liable. If our system charges you less money than actual price of what should have been charged due to technical error, we will contact you asking for authorisation to debit difference in payment. Should our system charge you any extra due to any technical error, we shall refund you immediately. All published prices include VAT but exclude delivery.

As part of our continued efforts in fraud prevention, on very large orders where billing and delivery addresses are different, we may ask you to visit one of our stores to verify the pin on the card which you have made payment, or pay by bank transfer, in which case we will immediately refund any card payment made.

Damaged/Faulty Goods

Please inspect the packaging before signing for delivery. In the unlikely event of your order arriving damaged or appearing to be damaged, please refuse delivery and do not sign for it. However, if, after accepting delivery and opening the packaging, you find that components are either damaged or missing, you must inform us by stating order number and/or part number of the relevant part immediately, or at least within 48 hours of delivery. We will organise a replacement part or product to be sent to you as soon as possible.

Returns

If for any reason you find the product to be unsuitable or are not happy with it, you have the right to return the product to us for a full refund. All we ask is that you return the product in its original packaging in a saleable condition within 14 working days of receipt. Where products are not faulty it is your responsibility to arrange the return of any products at your own cost.

You can return your order to any of our 20 stores or to our warehouse address below:

Futon Company
Unit A2 Circular Point
Hickman Avenue
London, E4 9JG

A collection can be arranged by us for the standard collection charge which will be the same as your original delivery charge.

You are required to take reasonable care of items. Please return an item in its original and undamaged packaging with all of its components. If an item is returned undamaged in its original and undamaged packaging, we will offer you a refund in accordance with our refund policy.

Please note: There are certain products which cannot be returned unless faulty due to health and hygiene reasons as they cannot be re-sold including:

- Futons & Futon covers
- Mattresses
- Sleepover products

We cannot accept flat packed furniture that has been partially or fully assembled.

Cancellations

If you wish to cancel your order, please do so by contacting us and stating your order number within 14 days of placing your order. We can only cancel your delivery order if it has not been processed for despatch/or has been despatched. Please see the Returns section above in this case. Store collection orders can be cancelled any time before the products in your order have been collected. If your order has already been collected, please see the Returns section above.

Please note: We may charge a cancellation handling fee of £50 for processed store collection orders that include large items like beds, sofa beds, futons, mattresses etc.

Stock Availability

If any of our products are out of stock, our website will display a relevant message within the product information section or the current estimated arrival of when the item will return to stock. If ordered through a store, the sales assistants will be able to provide you with the estimated arrival date. Whilst we do our best to keep our estimated dates accurate, for reasons beyond our control the date may be extended. Should the estimated date be extended, you will be contacted by email or phone. Your order will be processed as soon as possible once stock is replenished.

We never take your money in the knowledge that the product is out of stock at the warehouse, without informing you at the time of purchase. However, it is not impossible that you may order something that, almost simultaneously, someone else had just ordered through another store. If this does happen, we will let you know so that you can discuss with us what you would like us to do.

Some things may occasionally still go wrong, for example, our quality control department will reject deliveries from suppliers that are below a standard that you would find acceptable. In these instances, we will inform you, and you will be given the choice to change your order or cancel the item/order and receive a refund.

Collection from store

If you arrange to collect your purchase from our store, we will be happy to keep it safely for you until an agreed date. Our stock rooms are small and furniture is bulky so please ensure you collect your goods within 7 days from the goods arriving in store. If you do not collect within this time, and do not contact the store to inform them, the order may be cancelled and sent back to the warehouse.

Please note: We may charge a cancellation handling fee of £50 for non-collected orders that include large items like beds, sofa beds, futons, mattresses etc.
