Furniture Deliveries - What You Need to Know

Large items, such as furniture pieces, are shipped ground freight with curbside delivery. 

The items are boxed and secured to a wood pallet, then shipped using a freight company. Shipping times are 1-2 weeks, depending on the destination.

  2. The delivery terminal will call you when your order arrives to schedule a date and time you can be home to receive and sign for it.
  3. Consider planning to have a friend, family member, or hired help available to help you the day you receive your freight order.
  4. Your order will be delivered on a lift gate truck and will be taken off the truck by the driver.
