Approval & Scheduling
Once your furniture is approved for consignment, we will provide you with a scheduled delivery date or delivery window. It is important to stick to this time frame as we are committing floor space specifically for your furniture. In the event that you are not able to commit to the delivery parameters, please let us know right away so that we can reschedule or adjust accordingly.
Note that all furniture must have a preset appointment before being delivered to our store. If furniture is delivered without an appointment or pre-approval, it is subject to space availability and inspection.
New consignors are required to complete a Consignment Agreement prior to bringing items into the store.
You approved my furniture, how do I get it to your store?
We highly recommend that you use a professional mover to safely deliver your furniture and set up your items on our sales floor.
However, if you prefer to bring in the items yourself, the set up, assembly and placement of the furniture on the sales floor is your responsibility as the consignor.
Due to insurance restrictions, we are unable to assist in unloading items from the car or moving them into the store. We always recommend bringing adequate help!
We are happy to help you make arrangements for pickup and delivery by a professional, bonded and insured moving company.
