Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
Do you have a showroom?
We do not have our own public showroom but Gillmore products can be seen in a small number of design stores and furniture shops across the UK.
Alternatively by special appointment you are welcome to visit our warehouse premises in South Devon, UK to view any stock item.
Can I see an example of the finish?
Pocket sized sample swatches of individual wood or fabric finishes can be supplied free of charge within 48 hours. Please contact us by email us or call 01803 665362 with your full address and details of the exact finish you require.
Can Gillmore products be made to a special size or colour?
We sell from stock as opposed to manufacture to order so we are unable to customise our products. However for specifiers to the hospitality industry and other volume orientated trade buyers we do offer a bespoke design and supply service provided order quantities per design are in excess of 15 units.
How long does delivery take?
For stock items standard delivery time takes between 7 and 21 days depending on the product size. For furniture information please refer to the product delivery times

How secure is my credit card payment?
All card payment transactions are processed through the SagePay payment gateway which achieves the highest level of compliance under the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) as verified by Security Metrics. Full card information is never displayed to any individual at Gillmore or SagePay as data transmission is done using 128-bit SSL encrypted certificates. So you can be completely secure in the knowledge that nothing can be examined, used or modified by any third parties.
Do you offer discounts?
Special offers are available in the following ways:
- Sale Items : Discounted selling prices on selected products (depending on stock) throughout the year.
- Furniture Packages : Buying a full room set for some collections saves 10% or more compared against individual prices.
- Seconds : Huge clearance discounts are frequently offered on factory seconds and ex-display pieces.
I have seen your products on other websites?
Yes, as a successful design and wholesale business we supply many leading online retailers, some of who prefer to market our designs without the Gillmore branding or product names.
How can I apply for a trade account?
Professional buyers must tick the ‘Are you a Trade Customer?’ option when registering your company details on the website. Following registration your trade status will be verified. The verification process can take up to 48 hours so if you are applying for a trade account and have a very urgent order we recommend you call a member of the Gillmore sales team on 01803 665362.
How will I know to be at home to receive the delivery?
With the exception of small items delivered by courier every delivery will be booked in advance so you will know what day and time to expect your delivery.
