UK delivery refers to all parts of mainland United Kingdom, including the highlands of Scotland, and excluding Northern Ireland, the Isle of Man, the Isles of Scilly, the Scottish islands and the Channel Islands. For delivery to any of these please see below for information.
All deliveries must be signed for, except items sent by Royal Mail and which are small enough to be put through your letterbox. Please make sure you keep the receipt as it acts as your proof of purchase for warranty purposes.
3.2 Delivery of massage chairs
Deliveries are available Monday to Friday only although occasional exceptions may be made. We will endeavour to give you a week’s notice, but where a delivery slot becomes available at the last minute we will call to see if anyone will be available to take delivery of the chair. No delivery will be arranged for massage chairs bought on the internet before the expiration of the 14 days cooling off period required by the Consumer Protection (Distance Selling) Regulations 2000.
When your chair is delivered our team will make every reasonable effort to take it to the room of your choice, provided that there is sufficient access. The chairs arrive fully assembled and the drivers will not be able to remove any parts of the chair on site to fit it through tight spaces. It is not our responsibility to get the chair to your preferred location, only to the delivery address and the chair will be left downstairs or in a garage if it cannot be manoeuvred to your preferred location.
The packaging will then be removed so that you can inspect the chair fully, as you will be asked to sign to confirm receipt of the chair in good order. The drivers may remove the box if you ask them to do so, but we recommend that you keep it for a week or so in case the chair proves to be faulty.
Delivery is to be accepted within eight weeks of purchase, unless special arrangements are agreed at the time of purchase. Goods held thereafter will be subject to storage charges at commercial rates.
Please be aware that it is your responsibility to ensure that there is sufficient access to deliver the massage chair into the delivery address and into your preferred location. You should consider vehicle access, width of doorways, availability of lifts, awkward stairs, tight corners, etc. If windows or doors need to be removed in order to gain access it is your responsibility to arrange this in advance at your cost and risk. If you are unsure about access to or within the property, please call (0121 647 6477) or email us (email@example.com) to discuss this.
Please also note that where chosen access routes pose a serious risk to the health and safety of the drivers or risk damaging the chair or the customer’s property, a suitable alternate delivery address must be found within one mile of the agreed delivery address. If this is not an option the massage chair will have to be returned until suitable arrangements can be made. In this case any additional delivery would be chargeable. Our delivery drivers are experienced and their decision about access will be final.
Access difficulties are not an acceptable reason for refund so please ensure that any necessary measurements are taken before purchasing. There must be a minimum clear turning circle at any change in direction, for example on a staircase, in a hallway or between rooms.
3.4 Dismantle and Reassembly
Where access is expected to be tight we will ask, when arranging delivery, whether dismantling the chair is likely to be necessary. If you agree to a dismantle at the time of arranging a delivery there will be no additional charge above the ordinary cost of delivery. If we attempt delivery with the chair intact and find that access is insufficient there will be a charge of £300 for redelivery and dismantle.
3.5 Overseas delivery
For non-UK delivery please email firstname.lastname@example.org for delivery pricing and arrangements. Please note that we are unable to make deliveries to BFPO addresses.
If you wish to move your chair to a new location, we can offer a removals service please contact email@example.com for advice and pricing.
3.6 International shipping Policy
The customer is subject to all import duties, taxes and tariffs on any products ordered, which are imposed in your country, unless otherwise agreed with us in writing. Additional charges for customs clearance must be borne by you.
We have no control over these charges and cannot predict what they may be. Customs policies vary widely from country to country and you should contact your local customs office for further information.
Additionally, when ordering from us, you are considered the importer of the goods purchased and must comply with all the laws and regulations of the country in which you are receiving the goods. Generally, customs forms or shipping invoices for international packages will list the value of your order’s contents by product type.
For shipping of products internationally, you should be aware that cross-border shipments are subject to opening and inspection by customs authorities.
Once an order leaves our warehouse, we are not responsible for orders that are delayed through customs. If you believe your order/s is likely to be/has been delayed please contact your local customs office since we will not be able to track your package in your home country.
3.7 We ship internationally
We ship worldwide, including Europe, Asia, Middle East, America. Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org and our team will be able to arrange a special delivery.
3.8 Signature requirements for delivery
We will instruct the shipping companies not to leave packages at the shipping address without proper authorisation. International courier services generally require a signature.
It is necessary for you to provide a shipping address where someone is available to receive and sign for the package.
3.9 International chair deliveries
Where we are able to ship a massage chair to another country this will be performed by a third party freight forwarder. All deliveries are kerbside, not into the building, and are likely to be available only during normal business hours. The freight forwarder will contact you about a suitable delivery date once the chair is in the delivery country. If any arrangements are made with them which fall outside of business hours or kerbside delivery you must be invoiced for these directly, as we will not accept liability. Please ensure you have assistance available during the delivery slot to enable you to bring the massage chair into the delivery address as they cannot be handled by one person alone.
As with any delivery the onus is on the customer to make suitable arrangements to take delivery of their purchase.
- Payments can be made by Visa, Mastercard and debit card. Cash, cheques and some other electronic cards cannot be accepted.
- You are required to provide details for Billing Information. Billing Information submitted must be the same as it appears on your credit card statement. The billing address is held by the card issuer and helps link the card to the address as an extra level of security.
- To prevent any fraudulent orders and to verify the Billing Information provided, we may at our option, request that you send additional information to us via email. This may take the form of a copy of the front and back of your card, your card statement (the portion which reflects the card number, billing address and issuing bank’s name/logo) or other proof of address in the form of a utility bill, for example.
- We reserve the right to cancel your order and/or suspend delivery should we find that the information submitted is not in order or should we not receive the above documentation upon request.

This exclusion also applies to massage chairs so please ensure that you have chosen the correct product for your needs before finalising a purchase. We would strongly advise that you test the chair in our showroom as well as checking the measurements carefully before committing to the purchase.
Products purchased at a specially negotiated low price, below the currently advertised promotion price, or where the purchase is made on behalf of a business may not be refunded except where the product is faulty or incorrectly supplied.

Before returning any item for refund you must obtain a Returns Authorisation Number (RAN). Please email email@example.com with your invoice number, date of purchase, original purchaser name, the product you wish to refund, the serial number and your reason for refunding. If eligible you will be supplied with an RAN – this may take up to 72hrs. Please ensure this number is clearly visible on the external packaging to avoid your product being rejected. RANs are only valid for 15 days, after which you must re-apply so we can re-assess your eligibility.
Package the goods carefully to prevent damage, enclosing a copy of your proof of purchase and contact details, and send to the address below using registered post or another secure method of delivery. Please note that postage or other return costs will be the customer’s responsibility and will be reimbursed only in the case of damaged or incorrectly supplied goods, and only for standard tracked postage costs. Where an item was sold with ‘free delivery’ the usual cost of the delivery will be deducted from the amount to be refunded– this amount is shown on your invoice.
The goods must be returned, together with the original packaging, in the same condition as supplied to you, and where appropriate any free gifts should be included or the cost of these items will be deducted from the final refund amount.
