After you have created your dream custom furniture, you must consider the best way to get it to your home and in the perfect spot. There are two basic delivery options, one of which includes you picking up your furniture and bringing it home in a van, SUV or rented truck, which can be cumbersome and very difficult, or you could consider using the furniture store’s delivery service. Below are four good reasons why you should consider using a delivery service provided for and set up by your furniture store.
1. AVOID POTENTIAL DAMAGES
New custom, well-made furniture is an investment. The last thing you want is a beautiful piece of living room furniture with a scratch, stain or tear before you had the chance to sit on it. With professional delivery services, your purchase will be handled with the utmost care.
The furniture store will provide the right vehicles for transportation to your home, proper loading and unloading techniques. They have many years of experience going around sharp corners, up flights of stairs and even over balconies when necessary. They will also remove all the packaging that your pieces arrived in for the best chance of a perfect delivery.
2. ELIMINATE THE CHANCE OF INJURY
Moving custom furniture can be difficult and dangerous. It is very easy to over exert yourself when carrying or placing furniture on your own. Sore backs and aching arms are not the way to start your love affair with your new furniture.
Eliminate the potential for injury to yourself and those helping you by investing in the services of a professional delivery service. Sit back and watch the service bring your furniture into your home expertly placing it right where you envisioned it would go.
3. EASE THE WORRY OF COORDINATING A MOVING VAN FROM A NON AFFILIATED MOVING COMPANY
Using the furniture store’s delivery service is very convenient. Your get to sit back and watch the delivery process without worrying about coordinating schedules.
What you may not know is that many small independent moving companies promise excellent rates, but do not have the professional staff to complete a proper delivery without damages. When those damages do occur, it is very difficult to be compensated for the repair to your home or your furniture.
It is also common to have only one delivery individual with low cost carriers. This demands a set of strong individuals to help with the unloading process and delivery into the home.
4. AVOID MOVING FURNITURE ON YOUR OWN
Often, the most alluring opportunities to save money is to purchase a floor piece from a custom furniture showroom and pick it up yourself. This is not the best way to go. We contract with only established moving companies that come to the shop to wrap and prepare your piece properly to ensure that it is delivered to your home without damages. Our moving service professionals are even willing to take pictures when the pieces are unloaded so there are no issues with damages to your furniture and to your home during the moving in process.
We are proud of our track record in moving custom handmade furniture to our client’s homes without damages. However, this takes coordination and extensive wrapping techniques.
Our contracted movers are the best in the industry and are always available to help adjust schedules to meet your needs. We have successfully shipped all over the United States and many places in Europe, Hong Kong and even Hungary! We hope that this post has made it easy for you to make the final decision in your custom furniture creation process.
