Furniture Delivery Tips

Furniture delivery is a very specialised type of transport, requiring expert skills and knowledge. A few simple rules can prevent many potential pitfalls, and ensure that your furniture is delivered in perfect condition.

Whether you’re a bespoke furniture company with an order to deliver or you’re an antique dealer who needs to get stock moving quickly, you can find reliable furniture couriers and delivery services on Shiply. We work with thousands of independent couriers who compete against each other to win your job, so you can be confident that you’ll get a great rate for the transport you need.

When you submit your quote, we will match you with the best furniture couriers based on their profile and feedback score. You can then ask them questions, set your collection and delivery dates and accept their quote. It’s as easy as that! We also have quotes available for commercial and office deliveries if you’re moving your whole base and need a full furniture transport service.

You’ll be contacted before the day of your furniture delivery London Ontario to give you a three-hour time window for the driver to arrive. Please make sure that you or someone else is there to receive the delivery. If you require assembly of your new furniture, it’s worth checking that this is included in the price before the delivery driver arrives. If not, you should arrange for some friends to help on the day.

When the furniture delivery arrives, please inspect it from top to bottom. If you see any signs of damage, or if there is anything missing, make sure you note it on the delivery sheet before signing. If you’re not happy with your delivery, you should contact the furniture company straight away to resolve the issue.
