Shipping Policy


In most cases “office furniture” is shipped using more than one carton from the factory to your location.  Manufacturers use a variety of freight companies and carriers with whom they have established relationships. 

We call these freight companies “Common Carriers”.  Shipping standards and policies for the freight industry are quite different from that of “Parcel” delivery services such as UPS and FedEx.  Parcels are generally smaller, lighter weight, boxes.  The maximum weight for most parcels is about 65 pounds.  Office furniture typically weighs more, the cartons are usually larger, and these shipments are performed by freight companies using “common carriers”.  

When a “common carrier” freight truck delivers your shipment, they will only deliver to a street address – not to a particular office or suite within your building unless prior arrangements are made. The driver will park his truck in an accessible location, open the rear door, move your cartons to the rear of the truck and his job is complete. Additional services such as inside delivery must be requested and paid for prior to delivery if needed.

Made-to-order, special order, and custom orders are not returnable.

Truck deliveries DO NOT include “inside delivery”. This is considered an extended service.

Our FREE freight policy includes “tail-gate” or "curbside" delivery (the driver will bring your cartons to the rear of the truck, but will not assist you with bringing the items inside…this is due to increased liability on the part of the freight company).  Our FREE freight policy also includes delivery to facilities that are equipped with a standard 4’ height dock and curbside delivery.

It is the responsibility of the receiving party to offload all cartons.

If your facility does not have a 4’ high receiving dock or a fork lift and your freight is too heavy to physically lift items off the truck, then you may want to consider an optional LIFT GATE service. 

LIFT GATES are mechanical devices which are attached to the back of specially equipped trucks. They allow the driver to lower your shipment to ground level for an additional fee.  We would be happy to provide a quotation for LIFT GATE service prior to placing your order.

After the freight is removed from the truck, it still needs to be carried inside, which is again the responsibility of the receiving party.  The truck driver can perform an optional “INSIDE DELIVERY” service to the “LOBBY OF YOUR BUILDING” for an additional cost. 

When we provide a quotation for “Inside Delivery” services, the driver must be able to use a pallet jack to move the freight.  This means the route to your facility must provide adequate space to accommodate the width of a pallet jack and the cartons on the pallet. 

Truck drivers WILL NOT carry your cartons up stairs under any circumstances due to liability. Any special delivery requests MUST BE discussed and planned for prior to delivery.

If your office location is on a floor other than the ground floor, an elevator of adequate size is required.  We would be happy to provide a quotation for “ABOVE GROUND FLOOR DELIVERY SERVICE” prior to placing your order.  A designated freight elevator is preferred, but we can utilize a passenger elevator if exclusive use is permitted. Freight cartons can often be quite large so we recommend verifying your elevator dimensions to determine if the size is adequate.

Additional Costs Which May Apply:

$200.00 delivery surcharge for zip codes in remote locations (call us for details).

$50.00 delivery surcharge for zip codes beginning with 100 through 104, and 110 through 116 (Areas include Manhattan, Bronx, Staten Island, Brooklyn, Queens, and Western Nassau County)

$50.00 surcharge for refusal prior to actual delivery.

Carriers reserve the right to charge the normal delivery rate for shipment refusal at the expense of the customer.

Storage charges after 15 days will be invoiced at $25.00 per/day at the expense of the customer.

Additional residential delivery fees may apply for certain items; this cost varies by manufacturer and we will provide you with advance notice if charges are applicable.

ASSEMBLY:

Basic tools are required to assemble most office furniture and office chairs.  Generally, you'll need a screw driver and possibly a hammer.  If assembly is required, instructions will be provided. In most cases disposable tools will ship with the product.

If you need a professional to assist you with receiving, assembly, or installation we would be happy to recommend a reputable installer, however our company does not typically arrange these services on a 3rd party basis due to liability.

RETURNS:

If an item needs to be returned, restocking fees and freight charges may apply.  These fees vary by manufacturer.  Return freight charges almost always apply and restocking fees generally range from 25-35%. If you have any concerns or doubts regarding fabrics, finishes, or matching, please request FREE color samples prior to placing your order.

DAMAGE:

DO NOT sign the shipping receipt prior to full and careful inspection. 

*IMPORTANT: Upon receipt of your shipment, carefully inspect the packaging and notate ANY carton damage directly on the receiving documentation and/or bill of lading.  Note any observation of rough handling on the delivery receipt.  If you notice cartons are dented or show evidence that other freight was stacked on top of it, make on note of this on the receiving documents; this helps us to insure a positive outcome regarding any potential freight claim that may develop.

W If you have the ability to take a picture of the damage, please do so. A cell phone picture is acceptable. Take a picture of the box or pallet where rough handling occurred and try to take detailed pictures of any dented, pierced, or creased cartons of any kind.

If there is obvious damage to any product, reject that item.  Accept other items that do not have damage.

If your furniture is damaged or incomplete, we will do everything possible to help you.

Often, the manufacturers wish to be contacted directly. Our manufacturers usually handle part replacements directly. There will be a note in the literature that comes with your furniture that will direct you as to who to contact in the event additional parts are needed. If you have questions, please call us at (800) 867-1411 or email nicki@officeanything.com. 

It is extremely important to follow these steps closely.  Failure to follow this process could result in rejection or disqualification of any subsequent freight claim.  Good notation and pictures help to legitimize and expedite any freight claim which may arise.

CONCEALED DAMAGE:

If the freight has been accepted and damage is found after receipt, there is still the possibility that we could file a “concealed damage claim”.  If this occurs, send us an email with the details and description of the damage, along with pictures to verify the damage.

Concealed freight claims MUST be filed within 7 days of receipt of shipment; NO EXCEPTIONSthese terms are universal and are established by the freight carrier and associated product manufacturers.

Remember, honoring of concealed damage claims is at the sole discretion of the individual freight carrier; we make no expressed or implied guarantees regarding replacement for concealed damage.

Please see above for our complete shipping policy.

 

How will my furniture be delivered?

Loading Dock or Common Carrier Deliveries: For business address deliveries; your order will ship tailgate delivery, meaning the furniture will be delivered to your dock, or, if there is no delivery dock at your business, customer assistance will be required to take the product off the truck.

For Home Office/Residential Address Deliveries; you will be asked if you “Accept Curbside/Loading Dock Shipping”.  The term “curbside” means the same as “tailgate” delivery.  Orders with smaller packages will be shipped via tailgate or curbside delivery method, the most economical method of delivery.

If needed, we can arrange for the trucking company to call 24 hours prior to delivery so that you will know when to expect them.  Additional charges may apply for advance carrier call notifications.
