How To Order
It's really easy to order from The UKs Premier Online Interior Design Store
and we want to make your shopping experience as enjoyable as possible
where does Occa-Home get such great products?
Our hand-picked interiors collections and products are developed and sourced through our network of approved manufacturers from the UK, Europe and further afield. We have usually been working with these suppliers on our hotel projects for many years. These products are complemented by a range of designer branded home wares and accessories from key quality suppliers. Occa-Home's purchasing power means that you can be sure products are coming direct from the manufacturer to bring you best value. Occa-Home's buying department check our prices daily to ensure that they are competitive and where possible, using our buying experience, we price match on other online retailers, taking into account things such as delivery costs and stock availbility too.
Our products are displayed as clearly as possible throughout our website to give you as much information as possible about a product. If you need further information on anything, contact us at: email@example.com
do you hold stock?
We aim to bring you as much choice as possible in stylish home interiors and subsequently we sell a large selection of furniture, lighting, homewares and accessories and we can also supply any product from any of our suppliers, even if it is not shown on our website - simply contact us and let us know what you’re looking for and we'll do the rest.
We work in much the same way as a department store – many of our products are held in stock in our warehouse for next working day dispatch and we show stock availability clearly shown on the product page. With larger items including some furniture, lighting and more specialist pieces, we order these in for you and clearly show the delivery dates on each product and again in the Shopping Cart prior to Checkout.
Our aim is always to give you clear expectations on the likely delivery times of each product and to communicate with you regularly if there are any delays.
As hotel designers, furnishing large hotels all over the world, our design team often have to find solutions for supplier and manufacturing delays to ensure projects finish on time, so we understand how frustrating it can be when things don’t turn up as expected - that is why our Customer Service & Logistics teams are fully trained to minimise and resolve any such problems for you promptly and effectively
In the event that an item is temporarily out of stock, we will notify you of the delay as soon as possible, keep you regularly informed of the progress and dispatch it as soon as it arrives. Occasionally items will be more popular than expected and may sell out. Parts of our collection are also seasonal and therefore towards the end of a season products may become unavailable or discontinued. We will contact you as soon as possible if we discover any possible delays to your order and offer you an alternative date or if that is not suitable, a full refund. Our design team can also source handpicked alternatives for you that closely match your first choice.
Our collections include a variety of bespoke products such as [but not exclusively] headboards or sofas that are made to order specifically for you in your chosen materials or dimensions. Delivery of these items will generally be agreed with you prior to ordering. From time to time, textiles or materials that make up our bespoke products may be out of stock with our manufacturers and this may lead to a delay in the estimated manufacture times. Should this be the case, it is our policy to notify you of the delay as soon as possible, keep you regularly informed of the progress and dispatch it as soon as it arrives.
Please ensure that you read and understand the conditions that apply to the sale of customised products as noted in our Returns Policy prior to purchasing.
We partner a variety of courier and carrier services and will select the most appropriate service for your order. However much as we try, sometimes due to circumstances out with our control, [e.g. poor weather or international holidays or delays during peak periods with the couriers] dates quoted for delivery can only be estimated delivery dates and may be subject to change depending on the carrier network.
This doesn't happen often, but it is possible. In these circumstances we cannot accept liability for any loss or damage [whether direct or indirect] for deliveries made out with the estimated date for delivery.
