Furniture and upholstery FAQs

From ordering fabric swatches and delivery, to learning how to care for your products, our helpful FAQs have you covered…

Can I order a fabric sample?

How will I receive my furniture order?

You'll receive a text from Argos on the evening before or morning of your delivery with a 2-hour delivery window. Our Argos drivers will call you when they're nearby to discuss delivering your order safely. If you're self-isolating, please make us aware so we can rearrange your delivery date.

Made to order items will incur an 8-12 week lead-time. Occasionally we experience delays; if this happens we'll contact you with an updated expected delivery date. When your item is ready for delivery, we'll phone you at least 10 days ahead of time to arrange a date.

Please ensure there will be a person aged 18 or over to accept delivery. We'll deliver to your room of choice if there is adequate access and space, and we recommend measuring your doorways and room to make sure your piece will fit before ordering.

How do I cancel a 'made to order' order?

'Made to order' upholstered furniture like sofas, armchairs and beds are created specifically for you on receipt of your order. If you need to cancel items like these, please contact our customer services team on 0345 640 2020 within 14 days of placing your order, so we can stop them from being made.

Should I consider measurements before purchasing my furniture?

It's important to measure your space correctly. We recommend measuring your entrance, route and the space your product will sit before ordering.
