10. How should I prepare for delivery?
Here are some tips for a smooth delivery experience: Someone 18 or older must be present at the time of delivery, including Doorstep Delivery. For White Glove, have your room ready ahead of time since our delivery drivers cannot move existing furniture in your home. Also, move any fragile items from the path of delivery, including from the walls.
11. What should I expect the day of my delivery?
On the scheduled day of your delivery (or the night before in some cases), you will get a text and email with a three-hour window of when to expect drivers at your house. After that, you can use the Track Your Truck tool to see what stop you are in the lineup, what the expected time for arrival is, and where your truck is at the moment. If you are receiving White Glove Delivery, make sure you have a clear path to the room where your items are going, including removing pictures from the walls. You will also need to move any existing furniture as our drivers will not be able move it for you.
12. Can I track my delivery truck?
Yes! On the scheduled day of your delivery/service, you will get a text and email with a three-hour window of when to drivers expect at your house. If you are scheduled for daytime you will be contacted the night before or early in the morning with your timeframe. If you are scheduled for evening you will be contacted in the afternoon (between 3pm and 5pm) with your timeframe. After that happens you can then use the Track Your Truck tool. It will let you know what stop you are in the lineup, what the expected time for arrival is, and where your truck is at the moment. The information is updated in real time so you can check as many times as you need to plan your day accordingly and know exactly when to expect your delivery/service.
13. What if there is an issue with my delivery?
Please inspect your items before our drivers depart and if you find any defects or damage to your items you can reject the delivery and they can take the damaged pieces with them and we'll contact you to schedule a follow-up delivery of your replacement item. You also have 48 hours after delivery to report any problems and we will schedule a service technician to come out to your home to assess the issue and make any necessary repairs. Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will be happy to assist you.
1. What is the difference between "shipping" and "delivery"?
At Gardner-White, we use the term "delivery" to refer to items we deliver with our own trucks out of our warehouse. "Shipping" refers to items sent by a third-party company, such as UPS or FedEx, and generally refers to our Online Exclusive items that ship directly to your home from the manufacturer.
2. What are the shipping times for Online Exclusives/Free Shipping items?
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).
3. What if I need to return a "Free Shipping" item?
If your order arrives to you damaged or defective, please notify us at email@example.com within 24 hours or we will not be able to replace any damaged merchandise. If you wish to return your item for any reason other than damage or defect, you have 7 days to contact us to schedule a return. The item must be in new condition and you will incur a 25% restocking fee. You are also responsible for the shipping costs.
1. What if I want to pick up my furniture myself?
Not a problem! Free customer pick-up is available at our Auburn Hills warehouse starting when the store opens and ending 1 hour prior to the store closing daily (check the store hours here). Please bring a vehicle that has adequate space to transport your furniture. We are not responsible for unsafe loads. Items picked up from our warehouse may require assembly and may still be in their original factory packaging.
