Our normal price is the non-discount price that a product has been offered at, or will be offered at, in the near future.
Our design and manufacture expertise also helps us to set very competitive normal prices because we know what a product should cost and what goes into making it. Throughout the year, we may offer some of our products to you at a discount. The duration of the discount offer on any product is never longer than the time at the normal price. here the normal price is a future price (usually shown as an after event price) this is the minimum price we intend to charge once the offer has ended. Market forces beyond our control may sometimes mean we may need to increase the normal price.

Once collected you will receive a refund 14 days after the product is returned to site. Refunds will only be granted to the person who placed the original order and it will be your responsibility to take good care of the furniture.
You are the owner of the furniture once it has been delivered to you and you are liable for any loss or damage. We are entitled to refuse a refund if an item is damaged by trying to repair it yourself or getting someone else to do it. We always strive to please our customers so you may be asked the reason for return to minimise any issues in the future.
At ATPU we are so confident in the quality of our furniture that we offer a 10 year guarantee on our frames and a 1 year guarantee on our fabrics and leathers and additional products such as cushions. The guarantee starts from the date of delivery and offers cover against manufacturing defects on the construction of the frame. There are some things that aren’t covered by your guarantee. For example, deliberate damage – like treating it roughly or not using the right products to maintain it. It also doesn’t cover your sofa for use in a workplace or business – only for use in your home. And, don’t forget your 15 year guarantee only belongs to you. So if you sell or give away your sofa, the guarantee ends.
As a consumer you have certain rights regarding defective goods and this guarantee is given in addition to and not in substitution of your statutory rights. This guarantee applies to mainland UK only. Additionally, any product bought directly from the ATPU website or from talking to the team here at ATPU we will always carry out repairs to your furniture within the first year of purchase at no additional charge. Any repairs or services can be carried out after the guarantee period has ended under the discretion of ATPU but may we may charge a service fee.
