The Benefits of Furniture Delivery
Many manufacturers and stores offer their own delivery services, but they are seldom guaranteed. And nothing is more disappointing than brand new furniture arriving scratched, damaged, or unexpectedly unassembled. And if the furniture is coming in a box, often “delivery” means leaving it on the front porch to be moved in by the owner.
If a customer lives in an apartment building, he or she can be lucky to have it delivered at all, let alone carried up the stairs to their door.
When working with a professional furniture delivery service, expect:
- Delivery completed by experienced, licensed, insured movers
- Furniture unpacked/uncrated, inspected, and placed in home or office
- Delivery arriving on time and damage-free
- Furniture unpacked and assembled on-site
A good furniture delivery company will also offer pickup and delivery directly from the warehouse or showroom to save money!
Furniture is expensive. Protect investment by handling it with care. Jochas Moving and Delivery insures all furniture deliveries for 60 cents per pound–that’s double the industry standard! And if the furniture is damaged during moving or delivery, they will restore it to its original condition. Visit their Facebook and Instagram page to learn about their services.
If one chooses to use professional delivery services, there are a few things to do to ensure that furniture delivery goes as smoothly as possible.
Furniture Delivery Checklist
Prepare Space Ahead of Time
Before the day of the furniture delivery, clear out space where the new furniture will reside. Remember that, if necessary, the customer should clear a space big enough for easy assembly. Clear a path for easy maneuvering and carrying.
Make sure any stairs that movers will have to use are completely clear, remove dog and baby gates in their path, and remove any wall hangings that could be knocked off by large or unwieldy packaging.
Measure Twice, Unpack Once
A customer may have measured space multiple times before ordering that sectional sofa or baby grand piano. But before the delivery, it is important to also measure the width of doors and hallways. This will help find the best possible route for the movers to deliver the new furniture.
Professional movers will always assess and measure the space for any tight squeezes before unloading, but it saves a lot of time to do it beforehand. If concerned about an especially delicate piece, the customer should talk to the movers about extra wrapping, padding, or protection prior to unloading.
Be On-Site and Available During the Furniture Delivery
People are busy, but for furniture delivery to go as smoothly as possible, it is vital that the customer be available to advise and answer questions during the delivery and assembly process. There must be someone on-site to allow movers into the building and to receive the delivery.
The customer doesn’t have to be in the room every moment of the assembly, but try to stay nearby in case there are any issues or questions. Movers prefer that someone inspects and signs off on the assembled furniture before leaving the premises to ensure 100% service satisfaction!
