Shipping and Delivery

Shipping and Delivery Information

Standard Ground

We use this service to ship small, lightweight items. USPS and Fedex are the two carriers we primarily use for standard ground shipping. Your local driver will bring your order to your front door or main entrance Monday through Friday during normal business hours. This is the best option for fast, simple, and convenient delivery!

Inside Delivery

Inside delivery is a cost-effective way to have large, heavy items delivered inside your home or office. When your order reaches the local station in your area, you will be contacted to schedule a delivery appointment. Caveat: if you need debris removal, an item to be carried upstairs, or light assembly, you may want to upgrade to our White Glove service.

White Glove Delivery

Assembly is offered for select items only and will appear as an option during checkout (labeled "White Glove"). The assembly fee includes a delivery appointment, placement inside your room of choice, unpacking, installation and debris removal. If you are interested in assembly and do not see the option listed, please contact us at (866) 511-0534 for a custom quote.

Our Shipping and Delivery Rates Only Apply to the Contiguous 48 States.

If you live in Alaska, Hawaii, Puerto Rico, or on a military base, you’ll need a special quote. Please give our sales team a call and we'll be happy to help. Unfortunately, we do not ship internationally.

Quickship vs Custom, Shipping Timelines

Products labeled Quickship are in-stock configurations of our most popular products. Quickship products are in stock at our warehouse or our partner's and can be shipped either same-day or within a few business days. Products not labeled Quickship are made to order and their shipping timelines vary by product and manufacturer. Please contact a product specialist for a delivery estimate on a made to order item.

How much will I pay for shipping?

We do our best to provide you with the most competitive shipping rates possible. For most products, shipping will be free while other products will carry charges. This is determined by a number of things - including rules set forth by our partners that they ask us to follow, large items that require special handling, fragile items that require special packaging, and so forth.

We offer free shipping on most orders over $39. Certain brands tell us that we have to charge shipping, and you can read about those brands below. For the ones that leave it up to us, we cover the cost for you.
