Product Specification

We sell a combination of new and upcycled products.  All upcycled products will be clearly described as upcycled.

Whilst we spend a lot of time sympathetically restoring and reupholstering each upcycled item, some natural wear and tear should still be expected – we believe this adds to its general appeal and makes it truly unique.

We endeavour to provide very clear and detailed photographs of each upcycled product, however, if you would like further clarification on the condition of an item please contact us before making a purchase. We are very happy to answer any questions/queries and would much rather our customers make an informed decision before committing to buy.

Due to limitations and colour variations between monitors, there may be slight colour variations to those displayed. For upholstered items, we are always happy to supply fabric samples for a nominal fee – please contact us stating which fabric you would like and we’ll get a sample sent out to you.

Dimensions

For all items we provide approximate dimensions – if space is tight, or you need exact measurements, please contact us and we will try and provide more detailed information.

We cannot be held responsible if an item of furniture cannot gain access to, or does not fit in its intended space. Therefore, we strongly recommend that you measure all access areas prior to making a purchase.

Please note: Items cannot be returned because they are the wrong size or do not fit – please see our Returns Policy further down the page for more information.

Prices

All prices shown on the website are in pounds sterling (£), include VAT, but do not include delivery.

Payments

Phlexco Ltd will take payment in any of the following ways:

  • Bank transfer/BACS
  • PayPal payment platform (does not require a PayPal account)
  • Credit or Debit card via the Stripe payment platform

Both Paypal and Stripe are highly regarded, globally accepted payment platforms with recognised standards of compliance and security.

Delivery

Smaller/post-able items

For smaller items, that can be packaged and postage without too much risk of damage, we use a variety of postal services including Royal Mail, Parcelforce, Hermes and DHL. The price for postage and packing will be displayed when you add your item to your basket, but will also be mentioned in the product listing. We aim to post all items within 3 working days of ordering. If an item arrives damaged, please let us know within 48 hours. 

Large/furniture items – specialist courier delivery.

We use a network of trusted couriers to deliver our large/furniture items throughout the Mainland UK. A flat rate of £25 is applied for all Mainland UK deliveries – however, if you are located in Scotland, Wales, Devon, Cornwall or a remote/coastal area, then there may be an extra surcharge – this is to take into account the extra mileage/time required to deliver to these areas. Please contact us prior to ordering if you would like a quotation.

Once you have purchased an item either we, or the courier, will be in touch within the next 7 working days to arrange delivery. Please note that deliveries are usually carried out by a single driver, so assistance may be required for large items. Orders are delivered 7 days a week and at various times of the day, depending on where you are located on the driver’s planned route, so some flexibility is needed, please. If you do have any special requirements i.e. if you need a two-person delivery, or help upstairs to another floor, then please contact us ASAP so that we can make special arrangements for you (please note that extra assistance may require a surcharge).

Please note: It is the responsibility of each customer to ensure that the item ordered will fit through all access points and into the space intended. Items cannot be returned because they do not fit.

International delivery

We do NOT currently provide international delivery and do not have the facilities on-site to prepare/package items for delivery overseas. 

Wood products care & Advice

All wood products need to be treated with care – wood is a natural, living and breathing material. You should avoid placing wood furniture in direct sunlight as this will help maintain colour and avoid fading of the wood/dyes. Please also avoid placing furniture near heat sources such as wood burners, fires, radiators, or directly on underfloor heating, as this can have an adverse effect on the wood.

We advise using coasters and place mats to protect the wood from heat and spillages – a table cloth is also advised where there are increased chances of accidents/traffic/spillages.

Returns & Refunds

New items

We want you to be 100% happy with your purchase and will fully refund (or exchange if possible) any NEW item. Please inform us within 24 hours of taking delivery that you wish to return an item, by email: happy@wearephlex.com and we will liaise with you to organise the return. Your item must then be returned to us within 7 working days – please note that the buyer will be responsible for paying for shipping costs for returning any purchase. Shipping costs are non-refundable. Once returned to us we will refund the item, less any shipping/delivery charges (unless the goods are faulty or incorrect) within 14 working days. We cannot be held responsible for any returned items that are lost in transit, so please ensure that you obtain a proof of postage, and use a delivery service that provides an online tracking service and signature upon delivery.

Up-cycled or made-to-order items

For upcycled items we can ONLY offer a refund if your item is not as described or (in the unlikely event) damaged upon delivery. To process a refund we must be notified within 24 hours of delivery by email: happy@wearephlex.com, we will then liaise with you directly to arrange the return and refund of the item.

Please note:

– for re-upholstered items, it is your responsibility to request fabric samples before making a purchase – you cannot return an item because you don’t like the chosen fabric.

– It is the responsibility of each customer to ensure that the item ordered will fit through all access points and into the space intended. Sorry, but items cannot be returned because they do not fit.

Discounted / Sale Items

Only regular priced NEW items may be returned. Unfortunately, we are not able to offer returns on items that are discounted or on sale.

Stored items

If you want us to store any furniture that you have bought to collect/be delivered at a later date, then our return policy will not be valid on items stored for more than three weeks from the date of purchase. Please contact us for more information.

Order Cancellations

We reserve the right to cancel the contract between us if: • we have insufficient stock to deliver the goods you have ordered; • we do not deliver to your area; or • one or more of the goods you ordered was listed at an incorrect price due to a typographical error.

If we do cancel your contract we will notify you by e-mail and will re-credit to your account any sum deducted by us from your credit or debit card as soon as possible but in any event within 30 days of your order.

We will not be obliged to offer any additional compensation for the disappointment suffered.
