We'll Beat Any Quote

One of the many ways we like to demonstrate that we always offer the best prices is by ensuring our customers receive excellent service, at the best price for a beautifully fitted new carpet flooring. That’s why we pledge to beat any ‘totally fitted/on the floor’ bespoke carpet quote from another multiple retailer.

All items within the competitor quote need to be for the exact same carpet, underlay and accessories with identical product specifications including weight, dimensions and available widths, so we can compare apples with apples. Many retailers, including London carpet Solutions, rename the collections we sell, so if you’re able to provide us the with the manufacturer product names or a sample, this will really help us to check if we have the exact same carpet, underlay and accessories within our collections. 

We Beat Any Quote must be from a trading, currently open high street shop and not online or via any other digital channel.

Door Trimming

Doors may need to be trimmed to allow clearance depending upon the depth of your chosen flooring. This is not part of the fitting work unless this has been specifically agreed. Door trimming is charged at £25.00 per door. Fitters may remove doors to facilitate this service. If you have fire doors, external doors or non-wood doors that require trimming, this will need to be carried out by a specialist carpenter and this is not a service which London Carpet Solutions will either carry out or arrange. We are also unable to remove, or arrange the removal of, any glass doors / fire doors or external doors so arrangements must be made prior to the fitting date to avoid any delays.

Free 2 Year 'Fitting Satisfaction' Guarantee 

All carpets that we offer come with our free 2 year fitting guarantee, We guarantee that you shouldn't have any fitting defects with your carpets purchased though London Carpet Solutions. However in the rare occasion this happens, we will re-attend free of charge to correct any fitting errors that may of happened. This is on the basis that you have purchased new flooring, underlay, gripper rods and door bars supplied by London Carpet Solutions, and that the carpet remains in the exact same location where London Carpet Solutions installed it, and has not been tampered with or had any works carried out by anyone other than London Carpet Solutions. The free 2 year guarantee date starts from the date that you place the order with us. We reserve the right to revoke any guarantee at any time on any of our products sold by London Carpet Solutions.

Pile Reversal
Pile reversal or pooling is a phenomenon that can affect any carpet, but is usually more evident in velvet or cut pile carpet. It manifests as dark shading, and pools on the carpet as if water has been split on the carpet. It is down to local conditions and cannot be reasonably predicted. This is a rare occurrence and cannot be reasonably predicted, and therefore is not a fault. 

Administration

Where London Carpet Solutions has been asked to make the arrangements for your flooring to be fitted, we agree to act as your agent and for this service an administration fee per m2 is chargeable. The administration includes: introduction to a flooring fitting specialist and arranging the installation of your purchase under a separate contractual agreement between you and them. It also includes monitoring fitting standards, arranging a pre-cut service to aid an efficient and speedy ‘at home installation’, and on the rare occasion of a complaint being raised regarding the fitting, London Carpet Solutions will manage the complaint between yourself and the fitting partner. We retain full responsibility for the products and service London Carpet Solutions supplies and will act as intermediary between you and the deliverer/ installer should any liability arise from delivery and installation where London Carpet Solutions made the introduction to the fitter.

Product Guarantees

Certain products have additional guarantees provided by the manufacture. Where they are provided by the manufacture, we accept no responsibility for these additional warranties or guarantees. All manufactures' wear guarantees do not relate the appearance of the product but are specifically in relation to being 'threadbare'.

Wear Guarantee On Every Carpet, Vinyl, Laminate & LVT.

Our experts only select the best quality floors at the lowest price available and all our floors come with a free wear guarantee for peace of mind. Some of our floors carry up to 10 years wear guarantee! The ‘Free Wear Guarantee’ guarantees your carpet or flooring will not wear out within the stated number of years on the product.

Furniture Move

Our fitters will move a 'reasonable' amount of furniture (up to 4 items) free of charge. These items must be easily manoeuvrable by one person. Should there be excessive furniture, a charge of £40.00 per room will be applied for moving the furniture. This does not include any white goods, electrical goods, gas appliances, pianos, antiques, items that would require a specialist to move/disassemble, cast Iron items, items over 4ft in height or items of extreme weight. Please ensure that these items contents are cleared prior to the fitting date to avoid any delays or inconvenience with your fitting.

Pipes & Cables
We are unable to accept any responsibility for damage to non-visible pipes and cables (i.e under floors and skirtings etc.),  We are unable to accept any responsibility for damage to pipes if damaged by vibration, or if they have been pierced or when pipework is already loose. Solid pipework should survive even a direct hit. 

Carpet/Vinyl/Artificial Grass Widths/Lengths

All dimensions are in accordance with British Standards 3655 (1974) +/- 1.25% in width and/or length.

Free Home Consultation/Fitting Times and Dates

Fitting appointments and estimates are made in all good faith, however exact arrival and duration times cannot be guaranteed due to the nature and unpredictability of the work involved. We accept no liability for a delayed arrival of our fitter or estimator. A.M or P.M slots are available to all customers if available on a selected date or time slot. A.M calls are normally attended between 08:00 - 13:00, while P.M calls are normally attended between 13:00 - 19:00.

Damage and Scuff Marks

Our fitters aim to carry out their work with skill and care, but even with the greatest care home décor may be marked or scuffed during the fitting process. New paintwork and wallpaper is especially vulnerable and should be allowed to fully dry. A minimum of four weeks is recommended to allow the paint to fully dry. London Carpet Solutions nor any fitter we employ undertake to carry out any redecoration.

Special Order products:

Products that have been requested by the customer, which are not advertised on our website.

Carpets

The samples we show upon a home visit are intended to give a general impression of the colour and pattern of the carpet. When fitted into a larger area some patterns and seemingly random blends of yarn can have an inherent striped effect, or additional patterns and colours which may not be obvious from the sample. Colours vary from batch to batch and exact matching between pieces (especially from multi-width rolls) cannot be guaranteed. All carpets are cut at 10cm intervals with a minimum length of 1 metre. All sizes are approximate and within a tolerance of plus or minus 1.25% in accordance to British Standard BS3655. If your room is close to the normal width of carpet, please allow for extra in case a join is required. During transportation and storage, the pile may become flattened slightly and this will show as shaded bands across the pile. These will disappear as the carpet settles in to it's new environment and the pile is flexed through regular use and vacuum cleaning. If these lines do not disappear within a three-week period, please contact us.

Carpet Advice

Some carpets have been made using super soft fine filaments that give carpets a gorgeous soft feel. These filaments reflect light in different angles creating a 2 tone look.

Delivery & Care Package

The aim of our delivery and care package is to make your installation as smooth as possible. Within this package we include the delivery of your order, the removal and replacement of a reasonable amount of emptied furniture and the removal and disposal of off-cuts. In addition, we provide a complementary vacuum. We will also provide 8 weeks of storage for your new purchase from the order date. Not included within this package is the uplift or disposal of your old flooring although these services can be purchased separately. Whilst we will move a reasonable amount of emptied furniture, we are unable to move items such as grand pianos or the like for obvious reasons as well as white goods or gas installed items! We will need to be made aware, at the time of purchase, if any items require more than one person in order for furniture to be moved safely and securely, a charge of £40 per room will apply for moving larger amounts of furniture, of course if you are in a position to remove bulky and heavier items of furniture prior to your fitting date you will not be charged this fee. Should the customer utilise the assistance of the fitting partner for the movement of furniture they do so at their own risk and the fitting partner is not liable for any accidental damage which may occur during the movement of your furniture.

Storage Of Products

We will only keep products in our warehouse for a maximum of 8 weeks from the date of your order. This includes any part-fitted products. You must accept delivery of your products within this time. If not, you authorise us to dispose of your products with no liability on us. If we agree to store your products for longer than 8 weeks, we will advise you of the charges for storage, and you agree to pay such charges in advance. Further, you accept that during the period in excess 8 weeks, your products may be damaged, and you accept full responsibility for such damage.

Sub Floor

If you have asked a London Carpet Solutions home consultant to visit your home and check the suitability of a particular product to be supplied by us for your flooring, the home consultant is limited to checking what is physically visible without lifting existing floor coverings. If you would like the entire sub floor checked, it is your entirely your responsibility to lift all the existing flooring prior to our visit. Following our inspection, we will advise of any works that may be necessary prior to the installation of your product. You can then decide whether you wish our fitter to carry out any sub floor preparation, or whether you wish to arrange to carry out any appropriate works yourself. In conclusion the condition of your sub floor at your property you have asked us to install flooring is your responsibility.

Minimum Order

Our minimum order policy is 8m2 on all Carpets & Vinyl.

Orders Placed Using 'Customer's Own Sizes'

On the basis that you provided London Carpet Solutions with your own measurements, you accept that you are fully responsible for all information that you have provided, and that you've confirmed the measurements with us, and happy with the quote we provided you, before you have placed the order. Additional errors including, (but not limited too), missing/incorrectly ordered accessories, sub floor suitability or any carpentry issues are also your responsibility to check prior to placing an order. You understand and agree that any errors made while providing us with your own measurements will be of your own expense to rectify. At London Carpet Solutions we do offer a free measuring and planning service so please contact us should you wish to opt in for this service. Any orders placed on 'customer own sizes' will be clearly marked on quotes and sales orders.

Quotations & Fitting

All quotations and orders are on the basis that the sub floor is suitable for fitting the flooring you have selected without additional work. It is your responsibility to ensure that this is the case. We can carry out a free home consultation visit to check this for you. Our fitter will fit the product on your sub floor as it is when he or she arrives to fit the new flooring, unless you have asked us to arrange for any works to be carried out to your sub floor. If any damage is caused to the product as a result of your sub floor being inadequate, all costs associated with remedying the sub floor and replacing any product are solely your responsibility.

Top LCS Tips

  • After arrival, your flooring should be stored on a flat dry surface and allowed to acclimatise, as per the manufacturer’s instructions.
  • If you have a surplus box or two after fitting, we suggest these are kept in case of accidental damage, enabling you to swap a couple of colour matched planks or tiles.
  • We would also advise all customers to check their order in full prior to arranging fitting.
  • Please ensure the manufacturer’s own fitting and maintenance instructions are carefully followed.
  • Check the contents of your delivery
