How long will it take for me to get my order?

Our aim is to provide a first class service at cost effective levels. Orders for items that are stocked will be delivered within 5-7 working days and placed in the location you require subject to access. Bisley Filing Cabinets and Bisley steel cupboards are delivered to your office, site or home, unwrapped and the waste removed and recycled. Delivery is to UK mainland only.

Ebonium offer a wide range of non-stocked Bisley units which are manufactured to order on longer lead times of up to 28 days. However, it is worth waiting for these built-to-order items.

Please see individual product listings for details of the delivery timescales for the individual product.

If you need Bisley filing cabinets or Bisley steel cupboards quickly, please either:


phone 01276 536256

stating the product and the requirement.

ebonium will then advise on the shortest lead time. However, we aim to keep our promises so will provide realistic, achievable dates.

What happens if my goods are damaged, faulty or incomplete?

The focus for ebonium is to deliver right first time. The delivery company unwraps and inspects the product with you before a signature is requested. In the unlikely event that an item is damaged, the delivery note must be signed stating this and products will be replaced. If the unwrap and put in situ service is declined when it is offered, it is still the recipients responsibility to check the goods are complete and undamaged before signing.

What are the delivery charges?

Delivery is free on all orders apart from orders to Scotland & N Ireland. The free delivery is offered an all Bisley products that have been ordered through the standard delivery service. Any additional charges that may apply will be pre-determined and agreed before any item is despatched. We do not want you to have any misgivings or hidden charges. We do however reserve the right to make a charge equivalent to extra costs incurred if goods have been despatched and you are unable to receive the delivery.

Do products require assembling?

ebonium have selected a range of assembled products for our customers. Some items may require levelling and this will be done by the delivery team prior to leaving. Bisley Cupboards or tambours with shelves or internal fitments will be left with the internal items unfitted as most customers find them easy to install and may wish to change shelf heights etc once products are on site. It is important that all units are loaded form the bottom up to ensure stability.

Can I have a discount for a large order?

Of course we want to work with and for you. We have all seen the TV adverts on how this country does not negotiate. The answer is possibly. ebonium can only offer the service by investing in the solutions provided. We can cut corners but this is not what we want to do. Therefore, contact us by phone or e-mail and we will try and help.

Can I pay by cheque or BACS?

We accept numerous methods of payment. Most companies have business credit cards which are secure and trusted. However, we can accept a BACS or cheque payment. ebonium will provide a pro forma invoice and once payment is cleared we will release the product to you notifying you of the delivery date. We will also apply this to the 28 day lead time products, where payment must clear before we order the product to be manufactured.
