Found 17th Mar 2008
Hi all,
I have found a wardrobe I like but it comes assembled. There is no way it will get up my curved stairs so I am wondering if anyone else has had this problem?
I thought that maybe they might leave it downstairs and we can dismantle it ourselves to get it up the stairs. I'm sure they'll love not having to get it up there but wanted to make sure there won't be any problems.
The only thing I can think of is that any guarantee will be void because we have rebuilt it.
Any experiences??
Thanks.

DONT DO IT,,,,,,,,,, once you tamper with the goods all your consumer rights go out the window.
We once did this with furniture and when the draws broke (I dont know how they knew we had re-built it) they refused to do anything about them.

When you say it comes assembled do you mean it originally was a flat pack product ?

To take any piece of furniture apart it really needs to have been made for that purpose in the first place.

A traditionally made wooden wardrobe would never normally be taken apart.

Yeah, I thought that would be the case. I once had a problem with the drawers of a REALLY expensive Stompa bed and because I used one of my own screws they told me they wouldn't do anything.
I think I will agree with you and not order it.

Wow it usually the other way round people want assembled not flat pack lol.

It's made by Consort and all it states is that it comes assembled.
I can see your point actually, it must have been put together from flat pack but I doubt their customer services would see that?! :whistling:

Haha, Not in a house as diddy as mine!!

Either take the bedroom window out or take the wardrobe apart.

What guarantee do you need with a wardrobe anyway? :thinking:

Ask them whether they can supply it unassembled!

how much did you pay for it and do they have a returns policy?

It's from a catalogue...I doubt they could even be bothered to attempt anything out of the ordinary!

If you really wanted this particular wardrobe you could phone the manafacturer up and ask for their advice.
