How much is delivery? 

Portess deliver locally for free.


Will you assemble my furniture? 

Of course, we will always assemble your new furniture in the room of your choice (Unless agreed otherwise). We do ask that you ensure the space in which your new items are going is as ready as you are able to make it.


Can you dispose my old furniture? 

We can dispose of your old, mattress, divan and bed frame for a disposal charge of £25 per bed to be paid at the time of ordering your new bed. Unfortunately we can no longer dispose of upholstery, though there are many charity services such as the Furniture Project, which will be happy to help you as long as the fire labels are present. Otherwise you can always attempt to sell your old furniture on eBay, Facebook or local advertisement boards etc, failing that you can contact your local council who will usually collect and dispose of old furniture for a fee.  


How far do you deliver? 

Providing a free delivery service, our company policy is to group deliveries together to make them as economically viable as possible. We currently deliver in the areas of Melton Mowbray, Oakham, Nottingham, Leicester, Grantham, Market Harborough and Stamford. However we have travelled further a field when we have other deliveries on route or nearby. Please ask to see whether we will deliver to you.


When do you deliver?

We currently deliver and fit carpets throughout the week, Monday to Friday. However if the item is small enough to fit into a member of staffs car, we can drop it off ourselves at the weekend if required.


Will I need to stay at home all day to take delivery? 

If you require a designated delivery time we will try our very best to fulfill your requirements and provide an hours delivery slot. However, due to fluctuating traffic and unforeseen circumstances each delivery day is unique, so we are unable to guarantee an exact time. Please let us know at the time of ordering if a specific time slot will be required.


Can I collect from store?

Customers are more than welcome to pick up anything from either of our shops. We ask that you give us as much notice as possible so we can organise the item to be ready, i.e. brought into the shop from our warehouse. We also like to check and wrap the item up safely before its taken away.


What time are your shops open? 

Please see our contact page.


Can I order over the phone? 

Yes of course. Simply call us on 01572 722052 or 01664 565336.


Do your products come with a guarantee? 

All products will come with the statutory 1 year guarantee against faulty manufacturing. However there will be many other warranties and guarantees that change from one manufacturer to another. This can be discussed at the time of order.


I have an issue with something I bought from Portess, what should I do? 

At Portess we pride ourselves upon our service. So if you are unsure or unhappy with any part of your buying experience or the product please get in touch. We are here to help. If the product is faulty and under guarantee we will first come out to inspect then provide the best means of resolution.


What type of flooring do you do? 

Portess can professionally measure and install all types of carpet, both domestic and commercial, carpet tiles and vinyl flooring.


I want a new carpet, how should I go about this? 

We have all types of carpets at Portess. We hold discounted carpets on the rolls for immediate fitting and have hundreds of sample books that we can talk you through. Contact us by phone or email, or pop into either shop. Portess can then organise a suitable date and time for one of our flooring experts to come to your home with samples and measure up the relevant areas.


Do you contract flooring work out?

 We have 2 full time fitters at Portess that have been fitting carpets for many years and one contracted fitter for when we are extremely busy or need a helping hand.
