Might have a bit of a drive to get something you want but it's just the cost of a Transit for the day.

My last purchase was a 1500 quid 6 month old Habitat 2 seater and I paid 15 quid + 45 van hire.

why do you care so much about the depreciation of a sofa Laughing out loud do you really see them as assets that you intend to sell on one day (unless of course it's some obscure mid century danish gear)? very very odd mindset

I think what he’s getting at is that why buy brand new when someone else can have the pleasure of doing so and he can then buy it from then for a fraction of the RRP.

It makes sense, but given how RickRude’s statement rings true in my case, will never buy a second have sofa. No steam clean is gonna remove the remnants of jism enough for me to lie my face against it.

fair enough, that I can understand. we actually bought a second hand JL one for a quarter of the price (plus +£45 van hire) for our new place.. was only a year old and the house it came from was spotless so didn't feel too weird about it. saved us like £800

don't tend to read rickrude's comments but i do understand his concerns

Am I the only one here who's never had a wank in my living room? Laughing out loud

Obviously I'm gonna swerve if it stinks of fags or Alsatians but really don't get the paranoia. Most of you guys are more than happy to buy from ebay or classifieds so what's the difference?

Someone's lovely faded Social Sculptures that have been through 6 owners are far more likely to have pus and smeg and afterbirth on.

Definitely complain. We got store vouchers (£250) and a throw.

They are useless. Called up again yesterday about mine and they’re ‘hoping’ to deliver it to us before Xmas.

Stupid thing is we sold our sofa (ercol daybed) to the guy who fucked up our order and he’s now getting pissy because I’m not letting it go until I get the new one. Laughing out loud
