Refunds & Exchanges
If you wish to return goods, you must contact us as soon as possible to arrange the return. Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org (working hours Monday-Friday 9.30am-4.30pm). We can arrange to collect the items, a collection fee will apply; this collection fee varies depending on where you live. This collection fee may or may not be greater than the original delivery charge.
Alternately you can also return the item to our stores in Dublin, Kildare, Carlow, Wexford town or Gorey only after speaking with customer care at email@example.com (working hours Monday-Friday 9.30am-4.30pm).
You are responsible for covering the cost of the return, unless the item is faulty. You are responsible for the item until it is returned to us, therefore it is important to take reasonable care of the item, and use a recorded delivery service as proof of delivery. Refunds will only be given once the product is back with Murphy Furniture & Bed Store and in the same condition as it was sent out in.
Although we take every care to ensure your product arrives to you in pristine condition, on rare occasions a product may get damaged in transit. If you do receive a damaged product or incorrect product, please contact us straight away by emailing us with the details and photos of the item to: firstname.lastname@example.org
If any items were damaged in transit, this must be reported to us within 3 days of delivery of the item. If the items are visibly damaged upon receipt then indicate this on the delivery note when signing for the items. If possible, please return all items to us in the original packaging complete with all documentation and accessories that belong to it, alternatively for furniture we may arrange a technician call out for minor damages or an uplift and replacement of your item for you. For your own health and safety, please do not use the damaged item. Once we receive the item(s) we will issue a replacement or full refund using your original payment method.
We're committed to selling great value, high-quality furniture and accessories, we hope you'll enjoy our products but we also know that, for one reason or another, there may be a time when you need to exchange or return something you've bought for various reasons.
Following the Distance Selling Regulations, if for whatever reason you change your mind and would like to return your order after delivery, you have a cooling off period of 14 days.
You must inform us within 14 days of the receipt of your item that you are withdrawing your contract. From the date you inform us of this intention, you then have 14 days to return the item to us. You are responsible for covering the cost of returning the item.
We're happy to refund or exchange your purchase in full; however you must ensure that you have taken reasonable care of the item until it is returned to us. The goods must be in an 'as new' condition and returned in the original, undamaged packaging, along with any accessories and free gifts received with it. The product must not have been used or installed. Whilst the goods are in your possession you must take reasonable care of them and not use them.

Your refund will be issued within 14 days of the item being returned to us. We can arrange to collect the item from you; however this will be subject to a collection charge which will be deducted from your refund amount.
Due to hygiene reasons, mattresses and mattress toppers which have been removed from their original packaging cannot be returned unless they are faulty.
In the unlikely event of one of our items developing a fault, please report it to us within 3 days of noticing the fault. Please report this fault to us in writing, by emailing us at email@example.com and include a description of the fault and photos.
Please note that we may ask to inspect the goods to confirm the fault or ask you to carry out a telephone diagnostic to make sure it is not a problem that can be resolved quickly. If you are reporting the fault by email, we require that you attach photos of the damaged/faulty product so that we can confirm that the item is in fact damaged or faulty. However, we might need to carry out a more detailed inspection in person if these images are not conclusive. In this case, we will send out a technician to evaluate the item. Sometimes the product specifications from the manufacturer may change, in which case we will do our best to offer you a substitute. Where applicable, you may cancel your order. All sizes and measurements are approximate but we do try to make sure that they are as accurate as possible. Unfortunately, some items like mattresses cannot be exchanged or refunded for hygiene and safety reasons unless they are still in their complete sealed packaging, or they are faulty - this does not affect your statutory rights.
Refunds are available for online purchases only, subject to our Returns Policy. Returns of in-store purchases will be issued with a credit note. We would strongly advise customers before purchasing, to ensure that the measurements of all entrances are suitable for the intended purchase, as we are unable to offer a refund if the items are found unsuitable. The dimensions of every item can be found in the Features & Dimensions tab in each products individual product page.
If your purchase does not fit or suit we can issue you with a credit note, less a 30% restocking charge if out of packaging and a 20% restocking charge if still in its original packaging. Special orders cannot be returned or exchanged as the items are made to your specification.
If you wish to return goods, collection of these can be arranged by contacting us and a collection fee will apply, this collection fee varies depending on where you live.

Deliveries at holiday times i.e. Christmas & August may be somewhat slower and please be aware that if you are ordering for a pre-Christmas delivery, many of our suppliers have Christmas cut off times, so please order as early as possible.
Due to the large volume of furniture sold and the complex logistics of ordering, transporting & delivering these items occasionally delays can be incurred, Murphy Furniture & Bed Store apologizes for any delay and strives at all times to ensure lead times & delivery dates are adhered to.
Many frequently sold items on our website are actually held in stock in our warehouse and often these are delivered significantly earlier than the stated delivery time frame.
Before buying furniture, it is important customers confirm the measurements of their room as well as all access points before placing the order. Measurement details for each furniture item are displayed on their individual product information page in the following way: W x D x H cms or W x L x H cms.
Certain furniture items are fully assembled on arrival and it’s important to check that they will fit into openings of the room. We advise customers to check the item will fit through doorways, hallways and up stairs without damaging paintwork or windows. If our delivery team cannot get the furniture item into the house, they will need to return to us at your expense.
A useful way to check whether furniture will fit in a particular room is to map out the space using masking tape or newspaper. With dining tables, we would advise at least 60cm (24in) clearance from the chair when it’s out from the table to sit comfortably. When replacing older furniture, mark out the area of the new piece compared to the existing piece to check the difference in size.
Most items require no assembly or only light one person assembly which require minimal manual dexterity, little strength or specialist tools. However, some larger pieces may possibly require two-person assembly, a considerable amount of time and a moderate level of dexterity. In all instances full instructions, fittings etc. will be included with each item.
All bed frames, dining tables, bunk beds and some occasional furniture are delivered unassembled. If you require us to assemble an item you purchased, we can assist with assembly service. There will be a charge for this service from €25 - €99 depending on the product in question. If you require our assembly service, please contact email@example.com after you have placed an order.
After online purchase, a representative will contact you to schedule your delivery. Our delivery windows are limited by order, time and distance and your delivery will be assigned with those factors considered.
Not at present, due to present Covid restrictions.
Please allow up to 4 weeks from the day you received the order confirmation. For any additional concern, please do not hesitate to email us at firstname.lastname@example.org for updates.
