City Joinery furniture can be shipped all over the world. In almost all cases shipping is a separate expense. Customers are always welcome to pick up their pieces or make their own delivery arrangements.
Depending on geographic circumstances, we will perhaps use a local/regional mover experienced with fine furniture. They will carry the piece(s) into the customer’s home and unwrap them. Complicated assembly sometimes requires us to visit as well.
We contract with national blanket-wrap furniture movers of good repute when shipping to other parts of the country. All furniture is insured against loss or damage.
It is also possible to ship using companies such as FedEx and UPS, or a common carrier. In these cases furniture is packed in custom made crates built in our shop to protect the furniture during transport.
For international shipping, we use consolidation companies and commercial freight companies, depending on the client’s wishes and/or budgetary constraints.
In all cases, shipping costs are not included in the price of our furniture. Estimates are provided prior to delivery. Unless otherwise specified in advance, City Joinery is not responsible for unforeseen circumstances related to the delivery, such as narrow doorways or elevators that are too small to accommodate the furniture. Customers should be mindful that delivery costs are always an estimate and circumstances related to the delivery occasionally result in increased charges. PleaseÂ contact usfor an estimate of shipping expenses.
At times, some of our pieces require assembly and it is not possible or practical for us to do it. In these cases we send along all hardware and detailed instructions, and are happy to talk someone through the process.
