What to expect on delivery day
On the day of your scheduled delivery, you will receive a call with an estimated delivery window of 2.5 hours. Let your delivery coordinator know who will meet the truck at your home and provide that person's phone number, in case of a delay.
On your delivery day, you can enter your order number or telephone number in our Delivery Tracker to locate where your furniture is in real time.
Drivers cannot deliver furniture unless someone 18 years or older is at the home at the time of delivery.
Please inspect your merchandise carefully upon delivery in your home, noting any defects on the delivery paperwork. All service claims regarding visual damage on a new furniture purchase must be reported to our service department within 48 hours of delivery. Please call your store to report any damages. If an item needs to be returned, please note our return policy.
Tips to ensure a smooth delivery
- New furniture often seems larger in your home than in a store setting. Consider how your new furniture will fit into your home. Use our handy "Will it Fit" measurement guide to ensure furniture will fit through your home's doorways, hallways and/or elevator before purchasing.
- Have your room ready for your new furniture -- clear of existing furniture.
- Lay rugs, blankets or cardboard down to protect floors.
- Remove pictures, mirrors, nails, plants and tables from walls and walkways in the path of the delivery.
- Our delivery team cannot move existing electronics or other fragile items in your home, so be sure to remove any breakable objects in the delivery area.
What our delivery team will do during your scheduled delivery
- Place your furniture in the location you select.
- Set up tables.
- Install handles.
- Put shelves in entertainment centers and china cabinets.
- Unwrap living room sets.
- Remove boxes and packing materials.

Information about deliveries outside our service area & items delivered via FedEx/UPS
Items marked 'Free Shipping' (sometimes referred to as 'Online Exclusives' or 'Factory Direct') are shipped via FedEx/UPS directly from the manufacturer to your door in their original factory wrap and some assembly may be required. These items normally ship within 7-10 business days and cannot be cancelled after the order is placed. Oversized items ship via a freight carrier and may take longer (14-21 business days). A tracking number will be provided to you as soon as it is available (this often takes 5-7 days). If you decide you no longer want the item, you will be held to the Return Policy described here.
Shipping dates are subject to manufacturer's availability and discounts cannot be given for backordered merchandise. You will be contacted by a Gardner-White representative if your merchandise is not available for immediate shipping to assist you.
If you live outside the Gardner-White delivery area and you would like to order an in-stock item: it can be shipped by a 3rd party home delivery carrier. The cost of the carrier shipping is determined by the weight and size of the items you purchase. Delivery is curbside only.
