Frequently Asked Questions

Payments

I don't want to buy via the website, what do I do?
There is another way to place your order with us. You can call a member of our Sales Team on 1800 852 100 and they will guide you through the process and answer any questions along the way.

How can I pay for my order?
Most major credit and debit cards, including Visa, Mastercard, American Express, Maestro and Electron are accepted online, over the phone and in store. For orders over €1,500 we can process payments via a cheque.

How secure are my credit/debit card details?
All online payments are protected by one of the UK’s leading secure encrypted gateway services and there is a very strict privacy policy, meaning that none of your information is ever shared with third parties. All credit card numbers are encrypted when the order is placed using 256-bit encryption. Thereafter payment is collected through our online credit card system via Barclays. There have been no documented cases of credit card fraud using our shopping system online.

Products

Will I have to assemble the furniture myself?
At Oak Furnitureland the majority of our products are designed with no home assembly needed. However, to aid in delivery or to avoid damage, our designers have deemed it best that certain items may need a small amount of home assembly. This includes all dining, beds and some wardrobes, occasional tables and sofa products. Any handles e.g. for drawers and wardrobe doors may be on the inside of the drawers and doors. Items needing assembly will be clearly identified to you prior to purchase. Our designers ensure that any assembly is as straightforward as possible and in no way detracts from the quality or structural integrity of the product.

Is your furniture really 100% solid hardwood?
All of our cabinet furniture is made from 100% solid hardwood from top to toe; plywood and chipboard are never used. All drawers are made with dovetail joints for added durability. Each drawer and cabinet back is made from real hardwood; there is no skimping on any part of the furniture. The timbers used have been kiln dried using state of the art technology which ensures minimal movement and means if looked after correctly, your furniture will last for years to come.

How can your furniture be made from solid hardwood at these prices?
Because we design, manufacture, market and deliver the furniture using our own dedicated teams it cuts out the need for wholesalers and expensive middlemen. This methodology keeps our costs down meaning more cash in your pocket. Every step of the way, costs are kept to a minimum so we can say with confidence that the prices we offer are incredibly good value for money.

Do products from different ranges match?
We work very hard to make sure the timbers used in all our furniture stays consistent between ranges. As long as the same type of timber is purchased there will be very little difference in the finish from range to range. For example, our natural oak ranges should complement each other. However, it should be pointed out that over time natural oak will darken so there is always a possibility of slight shading differences between ranges.
