BUYING ANTIQUES ON LINE WITH CONFIDENCE AND TRUST.
Many viewers have concerns about making expensive purchases unseen and at distance over the internet, and this is totally understandable. Ruby Lane makes a great effort to address these issues by monitoring goods on the their site and offering solid customer protection policies. We would like to make some additional personal reassurances of our own ..
We have over 40 years experience of dealing in quality antiques, and for the last 5 years we have developed a successful record of selling pieces from our collection world wide by online antique sites. This 'journey' has allowed us to reach out and engage with some really lovely people, from New Zealand and Australia to China and the USA and Canada as well as people in our own back yard. These contacts have become an inspiration, they demonstrate that passion and enthusiasm for antiques is alive and well, and that so many people really do have a great depth of knowledge and are most caring in their choices and taste.
We have found that clear friendly and personal communication is always the key to having a really good relationship with customers, and that, combined with attention to the smallest detail over the packaging and carriage process makes for a happy experience and valued outcomes.
We have posted a couple of recent comments from customers below but please do get in touch if you have any concerns what so ever about buying online from us.
Purchase by installments.
We don't offer Layaway contracts as yet but we are more than happy to help customers spread the cost of larger purchases (over £1000) by paying for them in 3 monthly installments if preferred. No additional charges are made for this service and we will ship goods on completion.
ABOUT OUR ANTIQUE COLLECTION
We love the English Georgian period. It was an age of understated elegance, when furniture was hand built to very exacting standards by seriously skilled craftsmen. Their designs were properly proportioned, and quiet in manner, allowing 'Presence and Stature' to say all that needs to be said about themselves, ...... and their owners too of course!
To make the grade, all of our pieces are hand picked for having unique qualities and character, and everything is sold in showroom condition. Restoration work when required is always of the highest standard and sympathetic to the items concerned.
Please do get in touch if you want more information about our stock, payment options, or packing techniques and delivery.
Best regards to all our viewers,
Mark and Carole Middleton
