The service every customer can expect from us
Friendly consultation from the outset
The world of carpeting and flooring can seem confusing, but our team excel at guiding you through every stage of the buying process. We work hard to understand your unique requirements and then suggest bespoke solutions that match your individual needs.
Free estimating and measuring
Once you’ve found the perfect flooring, we will arrange a suitable time and date to visit in order to accurately measure up the space. With this information we can guide you through all available options and provide a detailed estimate, completely free of charge.
We want to make sure your new flooring is installed perfectly, and that’s why we offer subfloor preparation services. Our team will survey your floor and recommend the best method of fitting your flooring. If required, we’ll even advise on the type of preparation needed to ensure your new flooring looks its best from day one.
Uplift and disposal of your old carpet or flooring
We understand that removing and disposing of old flooring can be a hassle, so we’re happy to do it for you. Our team can expertly remove your old carpet quickly and dispose of it in an environmentally-friendly way.
Our high standard of customer service keeps our customers coming back, which is why we guarantee that you will never be hit with any hidden charges. Our delivery service is free with all installations, so you can be sure that you won’t be surprised with any extra fees.
Moving of your furniture
Over the last 9 decades we’ve gotten very good at moving furniture in order to have flooring installed, so let us worry about the heavy lifting. We will carefully and efficiently move your furniture out of, and back into, your room once the new carpet, rug or flooring has been laid.
