FAQs

Why buy aluminium garden furniture?

Unlike most wood and teak garden furniture, cast aluminium garden furniture does not warp or rot.

Whilst teak garden furniture requires regular oiling, our metal garden furniture is maintenance free and requires no staining or oiling.It is also a better choice than iron or cast iron garden furniture as it does not corode and rust.

Lazy Susan metal garden furniture is designed to be left outside all year unlike wooden patio furniture which is best stored inside over the winter months. Aluminium garden furniture can be left in place year round and will not clutter up your garage.

Is cast aluminium garden furniture really maintenance free?

Yes it is! All you have to do to maintain the look of your Lazy Susan metal patio furniture is to wash it down with soapy water. It is that simple.

Will cast aluminium rust?

Aluminium does not rust or tarnish.

Why should I buy from Lazy Susan Ltd?

Quality, service and price are probably the three key reasons for you to buy your cast aluminium garden furniture set from Lazy Susan Ltd. Our online customer testimonials show this.

Quality: All our metal garden furniture is made from premier grade virgin aluminium with a highly durable powder-coated finish. The coating is protected against ulta-violet ie sunlight. However like a new Car you must expect some gradual fading over the years, this is likely to be indiscernable, but I would like to point out that all aluminium patio furniture sets will do this.

The metal garden chairs are Carver Style and are designed to stack (except the April). Special attention has been paid to the design of the back of the chair to make them really comfortable, with or without cushions.

The larger round and oval metal tables have a lazy susan which allows you to pass items around the table simply by rotating it. The aluminium Lazy Susan simply sits on the table top and has a central hole for the parasol.

Service: As a small business, all telephone calls and emails are answered by Michael Scott, the business owner, David Bryant or Kate Hobson, allowing for a fast and informed response to any queries over prices or delivery options. Queries can be resolved immediately without being shunted around different departments. Lazy Susan Ltd prides itself on its prompt and efficient customer service.

Price: As a small business, our overheads are low. Lazy Susan does not run an expensive shop / showroom, though customers are very welcome to visit our warehouse in Chichester, West Sussex. We do not have a large advertising budget for brand building, but concentrate on using the internet to reach customers who are actively looking to purchase metal garden furniture.

Because Lazy Susan Ltd specialize solely in metal garden furniture, we are able to buy in large enough quantities to achieve very competitive cost prices from our suppliers and we pass these cost savings directly to our customers. As a result we are able to keep our prices really low.

The 2012/2013 Collection of Metal Garden Tables, Chairs, Benches and Bistro tables has been sourced directly from our factory in the Far East , this allows us to be really competitive and offer a great product at really good prices.

All of our cushions including those for the Benches have been purpose designed for the Chairs and Benches so they fit really well.The cushion pads are quite thick 5cm and therefore very comfortable.The Covers can be unzipped and washed, this means that your cushions will last a good few seasons.

How easy is it to build a chair?

No need to assemble any of our metal garden chairs as they are all assembled and welded at the Factory. They just come straight out of the box and onto your Patio. (The only exceptions being the April chair which takes around 8-10 minutes per chair and the Bistro Chairs.)

Can you build the table for me?
