FAQ and Information

Frequently Asked Questions

Do you supply everything needed to assemble the desk?

Each desk can be assembled by an average person, with no experience, in 30-40mins.  Your HiDesk includes all components and screws necessary. You will need a screwdriver to attach the Top which we do not supply.

We recommend using a power drill with a) a screw bit and b) allen key bit, for quickest assembly.   We also suggest a 3mm drill bit for any pilot holes.

Is the Top pre-drilled?

Yes our Tops are pre-drilled for quick assembly.  However HiDesk frames are extendable to be set to your personal preference and Top size.  As a result you may want to drill your own pilot holes.

We recommend pre-drilling any holes in the Top when the frame is in place. This ensures an accurate position, protects the Top, and makes adding the wood screws easier, cleaner and faster.

Can I purchase accessories at a later date?

Yes, you can purchase any accessory or top separately and at a later date.  Some discounts only apply to accessories when purchased in the same order as a HiDesk.

Do you offer discounts for bulk purchases?

See our Office Packages page and section.

What desk size is right for me?

Our Tops come in several styles, and sizes common for most offices and homes.  See below.

The frames are extendable from 1100mm – 1400mm and can support Tops up to 1600mm in length.  For large orders we offer custom size tops; see our Office packages.

What accessories do I need?

None, but we recommend a cable tray and power extension.  By placing a power extension in the cable tray, all power cables can go to the tray.  Office users today have as many as 4-5 plugs:  2-3 monitors, computer and printer/lamp.

Only one cable then connects your HiDesk to a power source.  This is not only neater, but safer too.

Our cable tray is affordable and matches with pre-drilled holes in the Top.

You can buy a power extension lead from an electrical retailer.  We recommend paying a little more and buying one with ‘surge protection’.  This prevents damage to all your electricals.

HiDesk Guarantee

You get a 2 year replacement guarantee on faulty items, and the guarantee period starts as soon as you receive your goods.  This is separate from your 30-Day Money Back guarantee regardless of the issue.

Unlike other companies that offer repair guarantees, our replace guarantee goes further.  We recognise that a desk is a considered purchase because of the financial outlay and time incurred, so we want to offer you some extra reassurance that you won’t incur too much disruption, or expensive repair bills in the unlikely event of something going wrong;  we will replace your item and if the same model is no longer available we will send the latest equivalent or better.

Simply contact us as soon as the problem arises via the Help or at support@hi-desk.com so that we can help.

What’s the small print?

We’re covering the product to remain in working order for the life of that guarantee – in other words against manufacturing defect causing breakdown. If the product’s used in the prescribed way and it breaks down we’ll replace rather than repair to get you up and running with minimal disruption.

What happens when you replace? Does the guarantee start again?

Yes, you get a full 2-year guarantee again.

What doesn’t the free guarantee cover?

The main things not covered are damage caused by accidents or misuse. I’m afraid if you damage the HiDesk motors, you’d need to be looking to your contents insurance to cover that.  As long as you’ve used your appliance for the purpose it’s intended for, then we’ll repair or replace.

So what do I need to do to claim under my guarantee?

Just keep the paperwork we give you – including the receipt – somewhere safe, and if you have a problem with your product email support@hi-desk.com.
