Wooden bedroom furniture recommendation - no assembly required

Hi all,
We are hopefully moving into our new 1930's house before xmas, and will need some new wardrobes and chest of drawers, preferably oak to match our bed. Can you recommend some reasonable priced companies that make wooden furniture and deliver them already made? I loathe putting that kind of thing together, and know that if you don't do it properly you can wreck the item. I would rather it was solid wood throughout, as am a bit sick of my knackered PAX drawers with the sagging drawers. Any suggestions? I thought Cotswold company looked pretty good, but reviews have been pretty mixed. Maybe I'd be better off going to second hand places for some old stuff?
Any thoughts or suggestions appreciated!

We have some cotswold items. 2 bookshelves and a TV unit thingy and IMO they are good quality and look lovely. The price seems reasonable to me and we searched for a long time to find something not flat pack that wasn't eye wateringly expensive! The delivery and communication was good too.

That's good to know Alice - yes the prices do seem good. Can you can see them in a shop anywhere?

Just remember you have to get all the furniture into the house, round corners and up stairs. Do the people that deliver place the items in the correct room and are they experienced in do I g this as there is a knack, also if something doesn't fit are you stuck with it.

Indigo furniture is lovely. They deliver and assemble it for you. Good customer sevice. Oak stuff and pine plank. Good if you like chunky stuff.

Oak Furniture Warehouse have a returns/slightly damaged/discontinued outlet in Chippenham near the railway station. You can get some excellent bargains there. IME they deliver within a certain radius for a fee, if you are travelling from further afield you would need a van for big things like wardrobes as the furniture is assembled.

Thanks everyone, I quite like the Cotswold stuff (although there are some rather ropey comments on mn about them). Their showroom looks close to Norwich station, so I might go up and have a look.
Have looked at but not sure if the quality is much better for the increase in cost.
Am a bit sick of Ikea stuff falling apart, and would rather invest in a few bits now and hope they last.
