How do I go about getting a specific proposal?

Is there any cost for getting a proposal from you?
We will put together a proposal specific to your project. This normally follows the following path:
- We have an initial discussion - This is to establish what you are looking to achieve.
- We visit the site - We need to gather as much information about the project and the client group. If it is new build we will ask for a set of the relevant plans.
- We will put together a comprehensive furnishing proposal - this will include space planning, furniture suggestions, interior design ideas and detailed costings.
- We will present our ideas to you - This can be to just you, or a group of colleagues.
No there are no charges or fees for the initial furnishing proposal. This is all carried out on a speculative basis and there is no obligation to go forward with us by using this service.
How does the delivery and installation work?
Once you place your order with us we will agree the delivery an installation schedule. Everything that makes up your order will be delivered into our warehouse and on the agreed dates it will be delivered to site by our team. Delivery is normally about 6 weeks from placing and order, but this can be arranged to fit in with the completion of construction work as required.
Do you only work in a specific parts of the country?
We are happy to go anywhere in England and Wales. The logistics of going further tend to make us uncompetitive. Most of our work has traditionally been in these areas.
Can you supply anything as part of the FF&E fit out?
There are one or two things that we are sometimes asked to undertake that are best handled by specialists in that field, but even in these cases we can provide the link between them and yourselves making sure that everything will work and integrate as it should.
In most cases we can provide everything that is needed and fully install it as well.
