We don’t charge for a home visit even if it’s for an insurance quote or similar. All we’d like to know is whether you’re intending to buy flooring in the future.
We’ll beat any quote
One of the many ways we like to spread a bit of Tapiness is by ensuring our customers receive excellent service, at the best price for a beautifully fitted new carpet flooring. That’s why we pledge to beat any ‘totally fitted/on the floor’ bespoke carpet quote from another multiple retailer.
All items within the competitor quote need to be for the exact same carpet, underlay and accessories with identical product specifications including weight, dimensions and available widths, so we can compare apples with apples. Many retailers, including Tapi, rename the collections we sell, so if you’re able to provide us the with the manufacturer product names or a sample, this will really help us to check if we have the exact same carpet, underlay and accessories within our collections.
Our pledge is valid for 14 days after your order is confirmed.
All carpets are cut at 10cm intervals with a minimum order length of 1 metre. All sizes are approximate and manufactured within a tolerance of plus or minus 1.25% in accordance with British Standard BS3655. If your room is close to the nominal width of the carpet, please allow for extra in case a join is required.
All vinyl flooring is cut at 10cm intervals with a minimum order length of 1 metre. All sizes are approximate and manufactured within a tolerance of plus or minus 1.25% in accordance with British Standard BS3655. If your room is close to the nominal width of the vinyl please allow extra material.
