Accuracy of content
John Long Furniture Centre has taken every care in the preparation of the content of this website, in particular to ensure that prices quoted are correct at time of publishing and all products have been fairly described. However, orders will only be accepted if there are no material errors in the description of the goods or their prices as advertised on this website. All prices are displayed inclusive of V.A.T. We make every effort to display the colour of the furniture as accurately as possible.

To help ensure that you purchase the sofa colour of your choice we will endeavour to send out a sample swatch of your chosen colour.
Before you place an order
If you decide you would like to place an order with John Long Furniture Centre after speaking to one of our sales advisors, please have the following information ready as it will help us process your order, however, we will be delighted to answer any queries you may have. Here are some of the most common questions for you to consider:
Can access be gained easily for the furniture to be delivered? – are the doors wide enough, are there any awkward stairs, lift or passageways?
Will the furniture fit in the room?
Which range are you interested in?
Which items from the range do you want to order? Please note that if you are thinking of buying extra items such as a footstool or chair at a later date, there may be a slight colour shade variance. It is therefore best to order all the furniture you require at the same time
What colour would you like the furniture in?
How would you like to pay for the furniture?
