All deliveries are carried out by the John McCarthy Carpet & Furniture Centre delivery team. If the item is in stock, we aim to deliver within one to two weeks from purchase. A member of our sales staff will be in touch with you the day before the delivery is planned. Our policy is to give you an AM or PM time slot, however, due to circumstances outside our control such as traffic and bad weather we may not always be able to meet this time slot. If, due to circumstances outside of our control, delivery might be delayed, we will contact you as soon as possible to discuss a new delivery time. Please ensure you provide us with a contact number that we can reach you on during the planned delivery day, and that someone is present to accept the delivery. If we cannot reach you on the planned delivery day, or if no one is present to accept the delivery, we cannot guarantee delivery on that day.

It is possible to have us take away an old item that is being replaced, at an additional charge. Please notify us at the time of purchase and we will discuss the extra charge with you. Please note that if we have not been notified by you in advance, the delivery team cannot take away the old item.

Returns Policy

We are happy to assist you with the return of items purchased in store, once we are notified within 3 days of delivery of the item and it is returned to us within 14 days. The item must be returned in its original packaging and in perfect condition. We are unable to refund or exchange faulty or imperfect goods where the imperfection was identified to you prior to purchase (for example, where you have knowingly purchased an imperfect display model).
Returns are not permitted on custom orders where an item has been ordered to your exact specifications or on any non-standard combination order. Mattresses and bedding accessories cannot be returned once the packaging has been opened for health and hygiene reasons. Any item which has undergone assembly cannot be returned.

Carpet & Flooring Fitting

John McCarthy Carpet & Furniture Centre accepts no liability for any fitting done by anyone other than our own delivery and fitting team.

At the time of purchase, please specify whether the room(s) that are to be fitted will be empty with a smooth, damp and defect free surface, or if you need assistance with lifting old flooring, moving furniture or surface preparation. If you are not sure of any preparation needed, a member of our sales team will be happy to advise you. In the case that our fitting team is required to provide assistance prior to fitting, the fees for the required assistance will be included in your quotation. Not notifying us of required assistance will result in additional fees to your quotation.

If the fitting team is assisting with moving furniture, please note that you are still required to move small, valuable, breakable and electrical goods. Whilst every care is taken whilst moving furniture, John McCarthy Carpet & Furniture cannot be held responsible for any damage that may occur whilst items are moved

All areas must be clear of other trades or their equipment so fitting work can proceed with continuity.

Pile Reversal in pile yarn carpets

All pile yarn carpets are subject to pile reversal which is most likely to be seen in smooth surfaces, densely constructed plush type qualities. This occurrence is difficult to predict or prevent. Pile Reversal creates a permanent change in the carpets’ appearance caused by difference in the way light reflects off the sides and tip of a yarn as the pile lays in different directions.
Shaded areas appear light from one direction and dark from the opposite direction. After a period of use the carpet may look as though water has spilled on some areas of the carpet hence the term “water marking”. This can also be described as “pooling”,” shading”, “highlighting”.
Pile reversal is not a manufacturing defect and does not affect the durability of the carpet. It is not due to the materials used to produce the carpet, the manufacturing process, or any combination of these factors. Watermarking or shading may develop on a carpet made with any fibres or manufacturing process. Once the condition has developed it cannot be permanently removed.
