Getting Your S.W. James To You

delivery and shipping

Production Process

From the start

Every S.W. James produced is made from scratch, by hand, in the most time-honoured manner. When you order your new S.W. James via the website, it is specially commissioned just for you, to your requested specifications. As a result, we ask for your patience during the production process. …Your new S.W. James will be worth the wait.

Production time

Product ETA's

Your order takes on average 6 – 8 weeks to create, and as your item is being produced, we will keep you updated with regular emails and calls.

Just can't wait

Express shipping

For the customer that just can’t wait to get their hands on a new S.W. James, we created express delivery items. This means on a certain selection of S.W. James models we can finish an item in as little as 16 days and have it on its way to you as soon as it’s been finished.

Express items are meticulously handmade in exactly the same manner as every other S.W. James created in our workshop, however on certain items we can shave completion time by holding specific components such as our solid hardwood frames, cushions and leather in stock.

If your interested in express shipping, please contact us

Approval & Delivery

Ready, Set, Go!

Before we start the production process we always confirm a few details with you. We will contact you to discuss access for our delivery team and any possible issues we may have getting your new S.W. James into place in your home. Once this is done and we are sure your S.W. James will fit, we’ll get started.

Once your new S.W. James is ready, we will contact you to arrange a convenient delivery date.

Almost there

Stand by...

When your item is nearing completion a delivery date will be confirmed with you. This will be confirmed by our furniture delivery specialists. This will normally be around 10 working days from dispatch date.

In order to keep our delivery prices free to all our customers, we ask you to be a little flexible with us when it comes to the date of delivery. This means we can't give you a precise delivery date until closer to the time of shipping. We are always as flexible as possible, but we need to fit around our logistics team, so if you require a specific day for delivery outside of the dates we can offer, a surcharge of £95 may be applicable.

It's Time
