Do you have a free measuring and planning service?
Yes we do! Once you’ve chosen your new flooring, we’re more than happy to come and measure up accurately. Alcoves and door recesses can make a difference to the amount of carpet or flooring you need. We would be absolutely delighted to visit you at home and accurately measure your space. We can then efficiently plan the exact amount of carpets of flooring you will need. This could reduce waste and help save you money. Reducing waste can also help us protect our planet.
I have a quote from another retailer but your service looks better, will you match my price?
Yes, we pledge to beat any quote for the exact same, identical product. If you find a high street shop offering a lower totally fitted price for a purely identical carpet, underlay and accessories, with the same high level of service, just bring us the quote, we’ll check it and beat it! Some high street competitors have a different nationwide shop price to their online price; Tapi Carpets & Floors only sell from a physical shop and not online, so we match our prices to the competitor’s physical shop price only. We also know that some high street competitors have a lower price in specific shops. Where these shops are within 10 miles of a Tapi Carpets & Floors branch, we’ll lower our price to beat your quotation.

If you have purchased the Delivery & Care Package, then our fitters will remove a reasonable amount of empty furniture from the room. If the furniture that needs to be removed is heavy or large and requires more than one person to assist in its removal, please inform the staff members when you are placing your order so they can inform the fitting partners. In some circumstances we may be able to offer a ‘room clearance’, again please contact a store colleague for more information on what this entails.

Yes, we can. We can place an order from any of our carpet ranges as long as a minimum quantity of 4 metres is placed. This can then be cut down and whipped into a runner for a stair or a hallway thus expanding your choice greatly. We do also sell a wide range of lovely stair rods.

Yes, we offer a ‘whipping’ service, which is the technical name for the action of edging an off-cut or carpet, so that it can be made into a rug or mat. If you bring your off-cut into your local store they will be able to confirm the price as well as the timescales this activity will take.

Can I get samples sent to my home?
The carpet samples we have in the store can be loaned out for a short period (normally 24 / 48 hours) as long as a deposit is placed. Alternatively, if we operate a mobile showroom in your area, we could send the home consultant to you for you to make your selection however you would not be able to keep the samples. A home visit often helps the selection process so that you can compare and contrast colours so that they match your furniture or décor.
You fitted my flooring some months ago and I’ve spilled something on it. Can you provide with me any advice on how to clean it?
We email a care guide out to you during the order process on how to best care for your new floor as we realise the importance of the correct maintenance for each flooring type. It is important any spillage is cleaned up as quickly as possible and, in most cases, it is important not to rub the affected area. If you would like us to send you the floor care guide please email info@tapi.co.uk and we will send it to you.
