Chapter 5/Conclusion: Amish Furniture Delivery Process
If you’re excited to order custom Amish-made furniture, you’re probably wondering what the delivery process entails. Unlike mass-produced furniture, each piece of Amish furniture is made-to-order, so the delivery process is a little different. In this last chapter, we’ll show you what to expect with a furniture delivery from our store.
How Long Does a Furniture Delivery Take?
Because we partner with Amish craftsmen to make handmade furniture, it may take 3-6 months for your furniture to be built. Custom pieces may take longer. Once a piece is complete, it takes about two to three weeks for delivery.
How Do You Measure for a Furniture Delivery?
It’s important to measure the space for your new furniture so you can enjoy it the moment it arrives. You can also use these measurements to determine the height, width and length of a piece you wish to have custom-built. To prepare for your Amish furniture delivery, follow these tips:
- Make sure to measure points of entry first.
- Consider all doorways and hallways your furniture has to pass through and measure the width, height and diagonal width of these areas.
- Consider any corners you might have to turn with the furniture.
- Take note of any light fixtures or wall hangings that may get in the way.
Furniture should be at least 4 inches less than the passageway measurements so you or the delivery team have enough room to move the furniture easily.
If you see a piece on our site that you wish to have but does not meet your measurement needs, our builders can customize most of their pieces if you need to make changes. If you have any question about the dimensions of your furniture, please contact one of our representatives.
More About Our Amish Furniture Delivery Process
Here are a few more facts about the furniture delivery process at AmishOutletStore.com. You can rest assured that each piece is delivered with as much care as the craftsman put into building the furniture:
- Amish builders in Ohio and Indiana make all of our furniture.
- Professional furniture delivery companies deliver our furniture.
- All furniture is delivered blanket-wrapped to keep it protected.
Also, shipping is quoted as standard residential curbside delivery for $249 to most areas. With curbside delivery, one driver will deliver the furniture, and you will unload the furniture and move it into your home. If you choose this option, make sure to plan ahead and have help available on the day of delivery. Additional shipping charges may apply if in a remote area or ferry service is required.
If you opt for White Glove in-home delivery for an additional $199 charge, movers will carry the furniture into your home for you and place the furniture where you wish. They will also set up any items for you except for a baby crib, which comes with instructions or items that must be mounted to a wall such as Murphy beds. Beds and tables will require some assembly if you choose curbside delivery. All other pieces of furniture arrive fully assembled.
If you have any questions about our delivery process, please reach out to us. We are happy to answer your questions about shipping, assembly, moving the furniture and more. We are also glad to provide quotes for both furniture and shipping costs, so you know exactly what to expect and can plan accordingly. Once your new Amish furniture arrives, it will not be long before you can enjoy the furniture and the natural charm it brings to your home.
