Finance4Furniture

Buying furniture is probably the most exciting and expensive purchase that many people will make for their offices. It involves style, design, comfort, practicality and of course budgeting. With normal day to day Cash Flow restraints inevitably our Customers consider ‘downgrading’ their requirements instead of buying a comprehensive suite of furniture that will achieve everything they require in a new office environment.
One thing that often gets in the way when considering a purchase is budget - the ideal solution therefore is a suitable finance package. Finance4Furniture is a partnership with one of the major players in the financing of new office furniture in the UK. Our partner has the resources to ensure any investment in office equipment and furniture is handled quickly and efficiently for all consumers. We can provide customers with suitable credit ratings with an easy-to manage funding solution that negating the need for an upfront large capital expense bill. The full cost can easily be expressed as a low figure over a number of years - and the tax advantages mean it can sometimes be the best way to buy. Finance4Furniture through FurnitureRunner.com would normally be suitable for customers looking to order products in excess of £1,000. Call 0845 5555 007 or Click Here for an instant finance quotation.

Delivery and Build Solutions (DABS)

At FurnitureRunner.com we pride ourselves on providing more than just a price and supply option. Our service pledge to you means we supply many more things than that, from in depth advice, design - right through to customer fulfilment. A key part of our service is the Delivery and Build Solution (DABS) that we are offering to all customers throughout the UK. A third party partner, who is experienced in providing a national service in the UK, provides our installation service. The delivery and installation service is effected by the DABS provider and a costing schedule can be provided on request. Call 0845 5555 007 or Click Here for further details.

Our Stocking Pledge

FurnitureRunner.com provide Office Furniture and Associated Products from Europe's largest specialist suppliers of office furniture. Whilst we endeavour to provide the highest standards of Supply and will always try to deliver within the quoted delivery time, sometimes this will not be possible. All delivery times quoted are meant as a guide only as all products may become out of stock depending on situations out of our control so we would always recommend, depending on your requirements that you should call our Customer Service Personnel on 0845 5555 007 to check on exact lead-times.

Colour Match

Make sure of the colour match:
We have taken a careful look at our desking and storage wood finishes. They need to be a uniform, stable wood representation (or real wood veneer where it applies). Our finishes come in three main options. They are wood foil, melamine and real wood veneers. Wood foil and Melamine - These are essentially photographic prints of a wood finish that are sandwiched in a protective bond. Amongst its advantages are durability (forget those coasters for hot mugs), consistency of finish and economy. Improvements over recent years in the photographic and bonding process now means that at times it is difficult for even the experts to identify the difference between a good quality foil or melamine and a real wood veneer. Real wood veneers - If you want to invest in “the real thing” then real wood veneers are still the optimum choice. Made by taking a thin layer of wood from a piece of timber and matching it to similar pieces of wood. These are bonded together to create stunning desktops and wood panels. They are usually placed on top of chipboard (as with melamine and foils) or MDF but have the unique beauty of being “one-of-a-kind” example of real wood grain in its most natural state.
Generally speaking veneers are mostly used in higher priced executive suites where appearance and style carry a premium consideration. Melamine and foils are mostly chosen for their practicality and value in general office settings.

Choice and Variety

Our customers demand variety. To help provide this choice we have selected different grains for different ranges. Therefore a beech finish in say the Influx range is different to the beech in the Trexus range. It’s another way of us being able to provide consumers with best selection. However, as a simple guide, if you need to match finishes do not mix ranges but keep your choice within one range.

Safety Audits

Health & Safety at Work regulations now require regular audits of any workforce at any location (including home workers). We have an electronic audit form that will help employers identify issues and our distributors to provide solutions, before they become a point of conflict - or worst the subject of litigation.
Anyone using a monitor needs to be assessed at least once a year and more frequently if equipment changes. A distributor, working with an employer, can interview each member of staff. If a problem is identified - such as discomfort in a chair, insufficient space or a monitor that is not close enough - a solution can be provided instantly from our comprehensive range of products.

Shaping the Future

Like any other part of life - Office Furniture is affected by fashion and changing times. In the 80’s and 90’s every office in the land was equipping itself with the latest technology. That meant millions of new computers with monitors, printers, fax machines and a wealth of other support equipment. All that meant a big pressure on office desk space needed to expand to house the extra items. Radial desks, with their distinctive L-shape one-piece desktops, were the answer. Then we had the advent of the affordable flat screen monitor at the turn of the millennium. Position these in the corner of a radial desk and they are normally too far away from the user to be ergonomically correct. It can create eyestrain, bad posture and in almost every case poor efficiency. Instead rectangular desks and wave desks became the ideal desk shape. These should be the logical choice whenever flat screen monitors are purchased.

Eco Friendly

Our biggest selling furniture range is Trexus. Our Suppliers have applied for the rigorous eco accreditation, which is in the final stages of accreditation. FSC Accreditation is the ultimate award relating to Eco credentials. It means that every component within a finished product has been inspected, its provenance and method of manufacturing checked. The rigorous tests mean that only products awarded the symbol are guaranteed to be eco friendly.

Spare Parts

It’s frustrating we know but occasionally mistakes happen. That can mean that a box of fittings for a piece of furniture like a desk comes minus a screw or bolt. Our fittings packs are packed by people and then checked to ensure they match the required items. However, mistakes happen and an incomplete pack can slip through. Should this happen to you our ExSpare service is there to help. We have a stock of all the major fittings components used in our furniture and seating. We can send a replacement pack to you by express delivery
FREE OF CHARGE, which usually means it will arrive the next day.
