Stock of products
Liang & Eimil proudly holds most items in stock and available to customers on short lead times. However, stock showing on our website is not guaranteed as it is not updated on a live basis and we receive orders from our customers in many ways.

Returns, damage and unwanted or dispute goods
In the unlikely case that you receive a product which is damaged or incorrect in any way, we will do our very best to repair, replace or refund the product. In some circumstances a replacement will be invoiced to you in order to send you a replacement. In this instance a credit or refund will be issued to you once the original items have been returned to us in the condition, they were delivered in. We reserve the right to collect the faulty goods and give a full refund without offering a replacement or repair. The Company will not be held responsible for any loss or costs caused to the customer.
In order to assist us in providing an excellent service and to avoid ambiguous situations we ask that all damaged or unwanted item be reported to our customer service team within 48 hours of receipt of delivery. Any such reports should be submitted by completing the Returns Form on our website https://www.liangandeimil.com/returns/ with appropriate pictures of any defects.
Where we are requested to deliver to a warehouse or other holding location it will be the buyer’s responsibility to ensure the goods are fully checked in line with our notice period above. We ask that the goods are unpacked and inspected within 48 hours so any issues can be reported within the claims timeline We will not be liable for damage discovered more than 48 hours after we have delivered of the goods. We do not accept damage claims that have resulted in misuse of the product or during installation. We do not accept damage claims once the product has been installed. Any damage must be checked and reported to us before installation.
Where the Company agrees to repair a product, we will work with the customer to effect this quickly and efficiently. Due to the nature of the product and often specialist finishes, we cannot always give accurate timescales for the completion of such a repair. We require skilled craftspeople to complete repairs to the appropriate standard. We will do our utmost to procure these services as quickly as possible but sometimes such services are not readily available. If we consider the time to repair unreasonable, we reserve the right to collect the product and supply a full refund.
Where goods are returned without defect, we are happy to accept undamaged, boxed product in its original inner and outer packaging for credit to the customer’s account. We ask that clients return unwanted product within 10 working days of receiving it. We will not accept a return of product more than 10 working days following delivery. We do charge 20% restock fee on the return of undamaged, boxed product in its original packaging. We also require that the product is returned to our warehouse. We will be able to process a credit in 3 working days following the receipt of the goods in the warehouse. Returns of goods from the Customer will not be accepted without the previous consent of the Company and any costs involved will be the responsibility of and borne by the Customer.
All items to be returned must be in the original packaging (including bubble wrap and cardboard) and must be ready for loading when the driver arrives to collect them. Drivers will refuse to collect any items that are not packed adequately as outlined in this section. Please ensure that the persons unwrapping the goods are very careful and keep the inner and outer wrapping of the original packaging intact. The original packaging is essential in preventing the items’ safe transportation and preventing damages on return. Under no circumstances can we accept returns that do not have the original packaging.
If goods are to be returned, the customer must request a collection in writing within 72 hours of receipt of the items, giving notice to the Company that the goods (or any part thereof) will be ready for collection. The Company will arrange for collection on the next available transport. All returned goods are subjected to a full Quality Control inspection before any decision regarding refund is made. MFUK Design & Furniture Ltd reserves the right to make the final decision on whether an item is defective or not. The value of the refund issued to the Customer is at the Company’s discretion and each case will be considered on its own merit. When the decision to refund has been made a Credit Note will be issued to the Customer.
Our contractual relationship is with the purchaser of the goods (our customer). Any dealings in relation to the return, repair, replacement or refund of a product, or any customer relations, will be conducted with our customer. Where our client is an interior designer and the goods have been purchased to sell on to a third party, we will have no contractual relationship with that third party. As such, all after-sales care will be conducted with our customer and not any third parties with whom we have no contractual relationship.
All deliveries are made Monday to Friday between 9am and 5.30 pm. The delivery date will be notified in advance by email. Standard lead-time for delivery is five to ten working days after receipt of full payment, unless otherwise stated. All the Company’s vehicles have a multi-drop schedule; therefore, it is not possible to state an exact delivery time. We can usually inform the customer in advance of the day and whether then delivery will take place in the morning or afternoon.
The Seller reserves the right to not arrange delivery for certain orders to certain areas in which case the buyer will be required to arrange collection from the Seller’s warehouse.
The Company’s standard delivery is one-man delivery only to a business address unless otherwise agreed in writing with MFUK. All deliveries are standard with a one man drop to the entrance of the front door on the ground floor unless otherwise specified and the surcharge has been paid. The drivers are unaccompanied, and they may require assistance with unloading, otherwise please enquire for our upgraded delivery service when placing the order.
We can also provide delivery to a residential address or we can deliver directly to a third party (i.e., the buyer’s client) at an extra service charge to be added to the standard delivery cost of the order. We require at least a representative of our trade customer to be present on the delivery address if the delivery is to a residential address or a third party. Alternatively, trade customers can arrange collection at our warehouse given previous notice.
All deliveries must be signed for and name printed by the Customer in front of the driver. In the unlikely event that the quantity of boxes is less than or exceeds the quantity indicated in the delivery note, the actual quantity unloaded shall be recorded in writing and counter-signed by the Customer on the delivery note. If there is no one to sign for the delivery, the goods would be taken back to the Company and the customer will be charged for the re-delivery of the goods.
Certain items are required to be checked by our trade customers in front of the driver at the time of the delivery. This will be stipulated in advance by the seller per email. In these cases, it is the Customer’s responsibility to arrange a representative to check these items. Failure to check these items could result in invalidating your claims on any damages.
Please note our insurance only covers us for deliver the goods to your front door and does not extend to moving items inside your property. Therefore, the Seller is not liable for any damages caused by drivers carrying stock into the Customer’s premises. The driver must remain with their vehicle and must not leave the vehicle unattended.
