Furniture Express sells a wide variety of products and has many different methods of shipping various types of items to guests all across North America. Many shipping methods will vary based on size, type of product, and how easy it is to ship. Delivery times and rates may vary widely. Select orders may be subject to additional surcharge depending on detail of information provided at time of order about delivery.
We allow guests to pick items up in store or at a warehouse to generally receive the best possible rate. Come shop in store or online, as pickup or delivery can be arranged. If a pickup is scheduled in advance, help can be provided to load items into your truck. Straps or shipping supplies are not provided free of charge. Loading docks available at select locations.
Common Carrier Calculated Rates:
These rates are automatically calculated by USPS, UPS, and FedEx to get smaller packages to their destination. Items that ship common carrier are items like soaps, sheets, pillows, and sometimes small pieces of furniture.
Economy LTL & Pallet Rates:
Economy LTL or pallet shipping is a curbside service that usually takes longer than a common carrier. Many larger items require special care before being shipped directly to a guests home. We take great care in ensuring our packages arrive undamaged.
Expect economy LTL & pallet rate shipments to take anywhere from 1 - 4 weeks from time a completed item or order is shipped and a tracking number has been provided. Additional lead time is typical for production, picking, and packing of select items. Total lead time from order to delivery averages about 1-8 weeks, and in some cases may take longer.
LTL is an economy service that is delivered curbside to the home on a pallet; generally delivered in a semi truck, unless other service is requested. Please contact Furniture Express for national installation details, or special delivery requirements. Delivering larger items can be more involved and complicated than smaller packages.
