“Do I Have To Have Ready-Made Kitchen Units Or Can You Supply Them Flat-Packed?” Question of the Week 12/03/2017
“Do I have to have ready-made kitchen units, or are you able to send them flat packed?”
This week, our question has been sent in from Joshua in Reading who is concerned about storing his kitchen cabinets before installation.
“I’m not ready to start work on my kitchen, but I want to make the most of the 10% discount you’re offering for orders placed in March. If I order now, do I have to have ready-made kitchen units, or can you send them flat-packed?”
Thank you for taking the time to send in your query. All of our cabinets are sent out pre-made as standard, but we are able to offer them unassembled. To make assembly as easy as possible, we offer a pre-drilling service which may be useful when you come to build your cabinets and help speed up the process. However, if you are ordering items before you need them, there are a few different things to bear in mind to ensure that your cabinets do not sustain any damage.
Storing your cabinets properly before you are ready to use them is important – this action can help prevent warping. Your cabinets will need to be flat, and will also need to be stored in a room that has a constant temperature (which makes outbuildings such as garages and sheds unsuitable, as the temperature will often drop sharply at night). Consider making use of battens or timber offcuts if you are intending to store your cabinets for any length of time – when placed in between cabinets, these can provide valuable airflow.
In general – due to the issues that can arise when cabinets are placed in storage – we would advise against ordering far in advance of your intended installation date. You can make a purchase and schedule your delivery for a future date, if this would suit your installation plans – though do be aware that all cabinets are made to order (so if purchasing far in advance there could be stock changes that may affect your purchase). If you can, order ready-made kitchen units when you are ready to use them. Our 10% discount offer is available until March 31st and we frequently run promotions on the website; as such, it may be best to wait until you are ready.
We hope that we have answered your question to your satisfaction; however, if there is anything further we can help you with, please do not hesitate to contact us again.
