We’re here to answer any of your queries or questions you may have so you can call us on 0330 433 9899 or send an email to customersupport@ruma.co.uk . Here are some of the questions we get asked most often:

How do you keep to social distancing guidelines when delivering?

Our delivery services are all non-contact, so whether you’re self-isolating or working from home, our teams are well versed in ensuring all your precious orders are delivered to you safely, and following social distancing guidelines.

Orders and How to Pay

Can we still place orders with Ruma?

Yes, you can still order, please do - you will keep our warehouse team busy with your orders. Thank you.

I’ve placed an order, but haven’t received my confirmation email?

This can happen, although it shouldn’t! Please check your Spam folder just in case. If it’s not in Spam, then why not give it another 30 minutes, and if you still haven’t received anything, drop us an email with your order number, or if you don’t have that your name and address and what you’ve ordered. It has been known for some of us to type in the wrong email address, we all get tired, interrupted or fed up with online retailers demanding we enter our precious email addresses exactly as they are, just one digit out and that’s it! Again, no problem, please get in touch and we’ll update your order.

How do I Pay?

We take all credit cards, PayPal and Klarna (have we told you about Klarna, click here if you want to spread your payments or find out more
