By law, any upholstered items such as beds, dining room chairs and lounge furniture must carry a label on each item.

This indicates that it complies with the Furniture and Furnishings (Fire Safety) Regulations 1988. Please check that your item has such a label. If it doesn’t we will be unable to accept it.

We are happy to undertake complete house clearance projects, and once you have removed the items you wish to keep.

We will take the remainder(so long as it still complies with what we accept) and they will be reused somewhere else.
