Terms for Collection/Delivery of Cleaning and Repairs
Collection and return delivery of all rugs is FREE if you are within 35 miles of Fairford, Gloucestershire*.

These fees include both collection and return delivery. Over 85 miles away, please contact us for a quote and to discuss options and/or to arrange a courier.
