International Shipping and UK Delivery Information

The following information will explain how we ship and deliver goods to you and any charges that may apply.  We define shipping of goods from our manufacturers overseas to our UK warehouse as International Shipping and we define onward delivery from our warehouse by courier or white glove delivery as UK/I Delivery*.  

It is a priority for us,  and echoing positive feedback from our customers,  we offset our Carbon Footprint ensuring that all our deliveries are Carbon Neutral.

Shipping Of Goods From Our Manufacturers

All of our products are designed and manufactured overseas and are then shipped to the UK.  We do hold some items in stock, but most of our items are custom-made to order and are shipped across as soon as they are ready.  We, of course, handle all of the customs paperwork, duties and taxes before receiving the goods into our UK warehouse and before onward delivery to you.

Our range of furniture and accessories can vary in size and weight quite dramatically and the cost of shipping these goods can vary depending on their weight and cubic volume.  For some of our suppliers, we charge an International Shipping Fee, supplementary to the cost of the item, which we display at the product level and this must be accepted before the item is added to your basket.  You will find more information in the detailed product information for each product it applies to.  

Our Methods Of Delivery in the UK and Northern Ireland

All goods are initially shipped to our UK warehouse, before being checked and then delivered to your door. Every item’s product description advises whether the item will be delivered by white glove delivery or by premium courier.

*Where Do We Deliver To?

We deliver all items throughout the United Kingdom and we can deliver any items indicated “by courier” to Northern Ireland.  We currently provide delivery in the UK and Northern Ireland.  However, on a request basis we can ty to assist with delivery outside of the UK and Northern Ireland – please contact our team at operations@houseofdome.com and we will see how we can help.

Once goods are received in our warehouse, our team will make arrangements to get these to you as swiftly as possible.  For white glove deliveries, they will get in touch directly with you to plan a convenient time for delivery.  For any items being delivered by premium courier, you will receive notification directly from the courier service when they are on their way.

By White Glove Service Delivery

This is our premium delivery service and which we use for the majority of our furniture items.  It includes delivery to your specified room, careful placement or assembly, checking the item for any signs of damage, plus removal of any packaging, if you require.  Please note, if doing an eligible return, you must return it with all original packaging.

We include simple assembly so that the goods are ready for your use.  However, please note we do not include full installation – for example, we have some furniture items that may require affixing to a wall, such as a mirror or wall cabinet and we have some electrical items that require a specialist electrician to install.  If in any doubt, please check with our team.

Courier Service

Smaller items are delivered by our premium courier service direct to your door.

Ordering Multiple Items

When you place an order including multiple items (which may be from one or several suppliers) you will see that they may have different delivery methods or timeframes.  Our goal is to always get the items to you as quickly as we can and this may mean they are sent to you at different times and by the noted shipping methods.

However when ordering multiple made to order or shipped to order items from the same supplier and the items have different noted delivery methods, we would usually receive the goods from Italy at the same time and therefore deliver these together, upgrading all items to white glove delivery.

Special Delivery Information

Some items of furniture may have additional delivery information notes included in the product description should there be something helpful to share with you, such as the item being packaged and delivered in a wooden crate to protect it carefully during transit, together with its dimensions.

When Will My Order Be Ready For Delivery?

In-Stock Items

Any items held in stock and ordered before 1500hrs, will be sent out by premium courier on a Standard Next Day Delivery Service (Monday to Friday, except bank holidays).  

Custom Made and Shipped to Order Items

We have indicated the anticipated time to produce, ship and deliver the item to your door in every product description.  This information is provided as a general guide and, often, we supply items faster than indicated.  

There are times of the year in Italy, generally in August and at Christmas, when manufacturing temporarily shuts down and this may slow production a little. When we confirm your order, we provide an estimated delivery timeframe and we’ll stay in touch to keep you updated of progress and when we are ready to plan a convenient delivery slot.
