  1. Hi thought I would update you.


    Thanks for the replies.

    the Manager called a few days ago and honored the cancellation and stated we would have a full refund of everything paid.

    This was sent in writing to us as well.


    They are picking up the faulty sofa we have and contract is now cancelled.

    it was cancelled under the 13.5 clause circumstances beyond their control lasting longer than four weeks.

    He confirmed our replacement sofa was not even made yet and was still on a schedule.

    Really pleased

So my order was made during lockdown? And received in a warehouse..during lockdown against government advice?? How this is possible I don’t know considering we were in lockdown a week after order and only essential workers were travelling out to work at the time. (unless SCS sofa manafactures took their work home) 


     21/04/2020   16:16     Further email stating deliveries suspended. Government guidelines are impacting their suppliers which included production delays. (So now my sofa isn’t in stock) they go on to explain a list of thing their doing with the supplier with regards to our order.
