More about our Pickup, Packing & Shipping process.
With over 300 warehouses nationwide it comes as no surprise that we can pick up from almost any location. And, once scheduled, we can typically arrange a pick up within just a few days’ notice. When on location, our normal procedure includes wrapping any furniture items with pad wraps and blankets, while tagging any boxes with identification markers so that everything can be easily and safely transported back to our local facility. We can also pack any smaller miscellaneous items into boxes on site, should you need assistance.
Our Packing and/or Crating Services:
Once the items are back at the warehouse, our standard pack protocol is to bubble-wrap and cardboard-box the furniture items. Then, everything gets safely banded and secured to shipping pallets. We do this for two reasons: 1) so that the items are consolidated and secured, which of course reduces the chance for loss during transit, and 2) so they can easily be loaded on and off the truck using industrial machinery eliminating the possibility of damage due to improper handling.
For items that are high value, fragile and/or delicate we can offer custom full wood crating. The crating procedure varies depending on the complexity and nature of the piece, of course, but some of our options include:
- Full wood, Styrofoam lined crates for items (antique furniture and artwork).
- Insulated sectional crates for electronics (high value servers).
- A-frame, lined crates for upright pieces (fragile mirrors and framed paintings)
- Suspended crates for items that can be damaged by their own weight (chandeliers).
- Skeleton crates for larger/heavier pieces that just need that little bit extra.
Our Shipping Options:
We ship via consolidation, so your cost is based on what you're shipping which is how we can offer such competitive pricing. Our standard transit times can vary depending on where you are shipping from and to, the time of year, as well as weather conditions. On average, these tend to run about two-four weeks, but you can always track your order at any point by simply contacting our customer service. And if you are under a time constraint, we can provide expedited services and offer guaranteed delivery dates and time frames.
Our Delivery Services:
We can offer full service, white glove delivery in which all the items are unpacked, brought inside and placed. Or, for those looking to save a little, we can offer curbside delivery instead; simply dropping the shipment off at your residence by appointment.
Satisfaction and Safety Guaranteed:
After reading about our services it should come as no shock that we have an A+ rating by the Better Business Bureau (BBB), are a member of AMSA (American Moving Storage Association) and have great online reviews. And, due to our exemplary packing protocols we are easily able to offer full replacement coverage on each order (even those extremely high value pieces).
