The manufacturer has requested that we give no free gifts with this stove.

Buying online is a little disconcerting for some. What if I get a lemon? What if I'm happy when I unwrap it?
 
If your stove's retail price is under £1300: Should you not be happy with your stove for any reason, within the first three months from purchase, we will arrange to have the stove collected from your premises (we pay first £48 delivery collection cost, covers most UK postcodes, you pay additional in rare situation cost rises above £48 for any reason). Stove installed and has been used? No worry. We will pay you up to £100 to have it removed by a Hetas registered installer.
 
As soon as the stove is back with us we will provide a FULL REFUND of the cost of the stove. We will even post you a pallet and straps as required (you will need to prepare it ready for our driver). This exceptional guarantee lasts for a full three months from date of delivery EVEN IF THE STOVE IS USED as long as normal wear and tear.
 
Between three and six months, we offer exactly the same but without the £100 stove-removal offer.
 
On this, you have my word.

Excellent Service

It's the second stove that we have had from Stovefitters. Both times they have been very helpful to help us decide on a stove and to answer questions on fitting and accessories.
The stove arrived on the day requested in a very well protected wooden box. The Arundel seems very good value for money, not like a lot of foreign imports. We haven't had chance to use it much so far as it has been so mild but it's perfect for our living room. Would definitely use Stovefitters again and have recommended them to friends.

Fantastic log burner

Very happy with the delivery of this product.
I was concerned when ordered it would not arrive in time for Christmas but the delivery was very prompt which enabled us to have the best Christmas with the fire installed. The product was very good value for money and looks fantastic in our new room. I would highly recommend Stove fitters warehouse to friends and family and as I am a builder to future clients
