There is a £29 delivery cost, but this may increase if you live outside of a 30-mile radius of your nearest ScS store. Read more about delivery charges here.
The fitting of your new carpet is not included in the carpet delivery cost, and we do not fit flooring ourselves. However, we can arrange for an independent fitter to fit your carpet for you. If you are buying online call our online sales team on 0800 731 0048 after you have placed your order and they will help you to arrange your fitting.

Payment should be made to your carpet fitter on the day of installation and the contract for the work is between you and the fitter. Standard fitting rates for carpets are: £4.20 per square metre, with a £84 minimum charge for halls, stairs and landings, or £63 for all other rooms (£5.00 additional surcharge, per stair, for fitting carpet on open plan or wrap around stairs). You can find out more about our carpet fitting charges here.
At ScS, we offer a 12-month guarantee on any parts and labour should anything go wrong when fitting your new carpet, but many of our carpets carry wear and stain guarantees of up to 20 years. Further information on guarantees can be found in the product information when you view any of our carpets online.
Buying a new carpet is an investment and we understand that you want your carpet to look good for years to come to get the best value for money. That's why we would always recommend buying our SOS Carpet Care Kit to help remove any stains when they occur. You can buy this in store or add it to your order online when you checkout.

New carpets can shed fibres and flatten after fitting, but with regular vacuuming to remove excess yarn and help to lift carpet fibres back up, your carpet will stay fresh and fluffy for longer. For more advice and tips to care for your carpet, please read our carpet care guide.
