How To Return Furniture

If you change your mind about large furniture items, you must notify us by email of your intention to return the products within 7 days of receiving your order. Products cannot be returned to us because they are unsuitable after seven days.

We ask that you return products to us unused, in perfect condition and with their original packaging. Please ensure that furniture is packed carefully, and the completed Returns Note is enclosed.

It may be possible for us to arrange a collection from you, but please note, For all returns (except when the item is faulty), a collection charge will apply.

If you have seen an example of the product in store and then placed an order with us by way of 50% deposit or full payment, Maison Hartley Ltd. reserves the right to charge a cancellation fee of 20% of the total order if you change your mind about the product once delivered.  You will also be liable for all delivery/collection charges. 

Cancelling Your Order :

Once you have paid a deposit on a furniture order, the order is confirmed and cannot be cancelled without a charge or forfeiting of your deposit. 

Returning Defective Or Damaged Furniture

On delivery please ensure you check the products carefully for any faults or defects. Should your furniture arrive damaged or faulty please call us while the delivery team are with you so that we can organise a replacement, a repair or a refund. 

We reserve the right to repair an item rather than replacing it. We will not accept liability for visible damage not reported within seven days of delivery. Should you request a refund on faulty or damaged products we will refund in full once the goods have been returned and checked in our warehouse. If the defective products constitute the entire order the original delivery charge will be reimbursed.

As there are natural variances in wood and our furniture is finished and painted by hand, each item may be slightly different in measurements, appearance, colour and finish. We will not exchange items purely on the grounds of the character or colour of the wood or the paint finish.

Where furniture items have an aged patina and or vintage finish, this is a part of the design of the product and should not be seen as a fault. Many of our products are handmade or finished by hand not mass produced to a perfect finish.

 Furniture Repairs

If items are found to be defective we will, where deemed reasonable, attempt to restore the product or offer a replacement as soon as reasonably possible.

Please do not attempt to repair a damaged item yourself, we cannot accept faulty goods claims where you have amended, repaired or altered the goods yourself.

Made To Order Items And Non-Standard Paint Finishes

Please note we cannot refund any "Made to Order" items or any items with a non-standard paint finish, unless they are faulty.  

Clearance Items

We will not be able to give refunds due to unsuitability on clearance items. These items have been greatly reduced as they are old stock or slightly marked or damaged.

Return To Store Or Warehouse

You can return your furniture to our St.Albans store or to our warehouse . Due to space restrictions, large items or orders with multiple items can only be returned to our warehouse and NOT to our store. Please call our Customer Services team to arrange this.
