Our customers are often our best advertisements and we really value their feedback. We regularly receive complimentary letters from our customers – here is just a small selection of them:

I would strongly commend Alpha Furniture for the high quality of their service and integrity.

The Drive Methodist Church, Sevenoaks


Dear Phil,

It is now one year since the completion of the refurbishment of the sanctuary at Trinity and we want to record our thanks to you and your company for your part in that. We found our dealings with you were most efficient and helpful and the whole process was carried out in a professional manner which gave us complete trust in you.

That trust was justified in that you produced the chairs of our choice at the time we requested them and they are of good quality. They have been put to good use during the past year and have met with much approval.

We have had several people people from around the country visit our church over the past months and we have never hesitated to tell them where the chairs came from…and the staging…we have found that of good quality too.

Once again our grateful thanks…We now have a really lovely sanctuary in which to worship God.

Trinity Methodist Church, Bury St Edmunds.


On behalf of the Caryford Management Committee and the many people who use Caryford Community Hall, I am writing to say how pleased we are with our new chairs. They have made all the difference to those who attend our film screenings or lectures, and I am even having people stop me in the street to say thank you. From the very beginning, when we requested samples, through to delivery at a date and time convenient to us, we have had tremendous support and help from you. The service throughout has been second to none and we would have no hesitation in using Alpha again. Thank you for making the process as easy as possible.

Caryford Community Hall, Somerset


Dear Paul,

We are delighted at the Cherith Christian Fellowship with the Waterfall Conference chairs that we ordered from you in April 2011. They are robust, look elegant, stack well and give both comfort and support.

We have been extremely pleased with the service we have received from Alpha Furniture; from our first contact with your colleagues at Beaconsfield and your helpful website through to on-time delivery in May and impressive after-sales help in June.

You were recommended to us by another church and we will certainly recommend both your company and the style of chair to others.

Cherith Christian Fellowship, High Wycombe


Dear Paul,

We have now safely received the seventy chairs which look splendid and are very comfortable. Thank you for your service and for helping to get this sorted. The chairs have been well received by the people using them in our village.

The Village Hall, Thoralby


Dear Vivienne,

We really are very grateful for all your help. Getting everything delivered to the docks on the same day was no mean task especially as the weather in the UK was atrocious that day. Please do pass on our thanks to all involved. The service we have received has been excellent and we would have no hesitation in recommending Alpha to others or indeed using your company again ourselves.

Philadelphie Methodist Church, Jersey


Dear Paul,

Thank you for the excellent service in delivering the chairs to Pett Methodist Church at the end of May as requested. You gave us excellent service. The chairs have been much admired and are extemely comfortable.

Pett Methodist Church, East Sussex


To all at Alpha Furniture,

Thank you for the new blue chairs. We were really impressed with the quick delivery and we have now been using them for a week. All ages really appreciate them.

Lindford Church, Hampshire


Dear Paul,

I thought you would like to know that we are absolutely delighted with both our sets of new chairs. The colour of the wood and fabric are blending beautifully with the remaining furniture and the comfort is second to none.

Thank you for the helpful and efficient way our order has been dealt with.

St Anne’s, Turton and St James, Edgworth


I must say the new chairs are absolutely splendid. To be honest the extra inch enhances the chairs…never mind the “bottom room”!

I notice that the new chairs are beginning to be used in other areas of the church so who knows whether the congregation will want to scrap the pews and go for comfort!?

Anyway, many many thanks for all the help you gave me in choosing the right style, the correct colour and your general support. And for the cheerful way you dealt with all my “problems”.

Broadstone URC, Dorset


We’ve had the Canterbury chairs for a few years now and so have  had some time to reflect on their use. We have been very pleased with them chiefly I think because:

a) they lend a wonderful “lightness” to the building’s look and feel. The chrome and light wood gave an impression of circulating air and freedom, rather than the solid dark wood chairs they replaced. People often remark about how light the church feels, and we’ve not underestimated their aesthetic appeal!

b) they are comfortable – maybe that goes without saying, but a lot of seating in churches isn’t…

c) they stack easily! We very often use the building for concerts, exhibitions, events and indeed different services, and the trolleys make it easy to put chairs out of site and easily move them about in great numbers. This flexibility is one of the key features we wanted and we’ve been pleased about how easy moving the chairs has been.

d) the linking book holders serve not just for practical book storage, but in keeping the rows neatly ordered.

We’re very pleased with them and would buy Canterbury chairs again.

St John the Evangelist, Upper St Leonards


Dear Phil,

A very big “thank you” for all your helpful advice and comments over a long period of time, prior to our order for the chairs which were greatly appreciated. The new chairs have been very much admired and also considered extremely comfortable. Many thanks for your efficient and helpful service.

Hanham Baptist Church, Bristol


Dear Sir,

We are very pleased with our new table and happy with prompt delivery, it has been a pleasure doing business with you and would recommend your company at any given time in the future.

Mr and Mrs Baillie, Duntocher


We were very impressed by the helpfulness of your sales staff, the prompt delivery following actual order, and the high quality of the product, Well done!

Dedham Assembly Rooms


Thank you very much for our recent order. We are very pleased how quickly this was processed and, though it was only the one chair, we were treated politely and efficiently.

R.C. Diocese of Southwark


The most helpful thing was the personal visit with different styles of chairs. We were able to try different ranges and that made our decision much easier.

Waltham Chase Methodist Church, Hampshire


Five Star! The chairs are very comfortable, hard wearing, easy to stack and enhances the overall look/image of the church. We explored other avenues – some of which were very hard sell. Your service couldn’t be bettered.

Highbury Quadrant Congregation Church


Thank you for all your co-operation and help throughout this project, which has been of great assistance to us. The congregation is delighted with the new seating.

Prestbury Methodist Church, Cheshire


Just a quick line to say thank you. Everybody is very pleased with our purchase and I would certainly recommend any other people I hear of who are looking for chairs to contact you. Our minister was only saying this morning how well we have done to get so many chairs for the amount of money we had available.

Crayford Baptist Church, London



Hello David,

I have seen the refurbished chairs and just wanted to say thanks for a good job done. The chairs look much better and I hope the colour remains fast. I have had some positive feedback. Thanks again.

Ipswich United Reformed Church


Dear Phil,

I would like to express my gratitude to you, to Michael and to Cathy for the outstanding new Sandvale chair covers and associated service for our order. In particular, I am extremely grateful that Michael and Cathy stayed an extra hour after work last Friday afternoon when my mother and I were delayed in reaching you after an accident on the M25. Thank you so much to all of you.


Pew Cushions and Hassocks

Just a short note to say how delighted we are with the pew cushions you supplied. All comments are favourable, indeed someone suggested that they were so comfortable, and the sermons could be longer. (I think this was a joke). The delivery was spot on time, in what was a very busy period (Christmas) and I compliment your company.

St John’s, Broughton


I wanted to thank you so much for the pew cushions, they have made such a difference and at the Crib service this evening there was a real buzz. I, and others, have been most impressed with your service. When you said you would get them to us by Christmas, I was surprised, but you were good to your word. It has been a pleasure to do business with you and I would not hesitate to recommend you to anyone who is looking at pew cushions or indeed any other upholstery.

St Bartholomew, Binley


Alpha Furniture has been very helpful, friendly, and had an eye for detail when they visited the church to give us their advice, even suggesting curved edges and how we should measure each pew. The pew runners are very well made, fit accurately and are well padded. We would recommend the company to other churches and organisations.

St Mary’s, Cheadle


Care Home

Dear Vivienne,

We did indeed take delivery of our 20 care chairs, and thank you. It was all rather manic as we had the flooring being done and it was National Care Home Open Day but it all went well. The residents love the new chairs and we had so many positive comments about them.

Thanks for all your support (and the lovely chairs)!

Swarthmore Residential Care Home, Gerrards Cross
