Can you buy garden furniture online in 2016?

The answer is obviously of course, but choosing the right supplier of outdoor furniture could be difficult if you aren’t careful. So we go over the latest advice on purchasing this sort of product for home delivery in the United Kingdom.

Delivery Details and Problems

You need to know that the company is arranging the delivery for a date you will be able to receive it. The furniture will tend to be fairly large, and so it could be awkward if they start to deliver a large pallet onto your driveway when you aren’t around, not to mention the security risk of the package getting stolen.

Price Guarantee and Competition

If you are worried that the price of the furniture might be inflated, you may want to shop around on various other sites to double check. You could search for the brand name on Amazon and Ebay, as well as searching on Google for the cheaper or price search around your product. This may help save you some money, but make sure that the service level they are providing you is still going to be the same as you need.

The Type of Furniture You Need

There are many different type of garden furniture you can buy online, but you need to first consider the needs of your lifestyle. For example, if you often have friends over for dinner, then in the summer you will need at least a 4 seater, if not a 6 seater dining set.

If you prefer to leave your furniture outside all year, then you will need a weatherproof furniture set, such as those available from Gardencentreshopping UK here: https://www.gardencentreshopping.co.uk/weatherproof-furniture

You can also buy weatherproof benches if you prefer to not have such a large piece outside.


You can see the bench from Winawood above, which is a classic piece of weatherproof furniture, but if you want to assemble this then checkout BuildWinawood.co.uk.

For commercial inquiries of garden furniture, I have been personally recommended their service here: gardencentreshopping.co.uk/commercial-furniture

General Advice on Online Shopping

Of course all of the normal rules apply when doing online shopping, and you should consider the recommendations of the UK government on how to check retailers for credibility. We would advise going for someone who has a real UK business, as opposed to internet only businesses.
