frequently asked questions about rugs
I’ve ordered my rug, what happens now?
We aim for your rug to be delivered to your address within 3-5 working days of your order being placed.
The rug courier APC will be in touch, who will then let you know a planned delivery date. If the date given isn’t suitable to your plans, you can call APC directly on: 0800 37 37 37 to get this re-arranged to a day that fits better around you. If you do give them a call, you will need to have a note handy of your consignment number and postcode.
Can I check when my rug will be delivered?
Once the couriers receive your rug, they will be in touch with you. You’ll receive an email, that will have your tracking link included within the email for you to click on and track the delivery process.
Alternatively, you can call APC directly on: 0800 37 37 37, if you can call from your landline this will take you directly through to your local delivery depot. To check the planned date of delivery with APC, you will need your consignment number and post code to hand.
How should I care for my rug?
To keep your rug looking at its greatest for longer, where possible it is best to try to avoid placing your rug in direct sunlight as this can lead to discolouration.
It is also good practise to vacuum regularly to get as much dirt and grit out of the fibres as possible, to keep your rug looking in top condition. Another top tip is to clear up any spillages as quick as possible, to minimise the risk of staining. If you would like some more in-depth information about the best ways to care for your rug, please see our rugs care guide.
Do I need to buy rug grip?
It will depend on your existing flooring underneath as to how likely your rug will be to move but this is always an optional purchase. We do advise to purchase rug grips as some of the benefits are that it maintains the placement of the rug and provides you with peace of mind by reducing the risk of slippage and trip hazards.
