Shipments with other carriers:
For online customers out of state, you must arrange and schedule shipments to the customer’s delivery address through a third party carrier freight service.
For deliveries by freight carrier, the driver is only responsible for removing your items from the vehicle. The driver is NOT responsible for moving your items any distance from the truck. Items that are shipped via freight service are those that are heavy and or bulky, so it is generally advisable to have someone available to help you move you items inside. Many freight carriers do offer an inside delivery service in which they can assist in moving the items inside a doorway or garage. This does not include moving the items up any stairs, nor does it involve placing the items within your home or office or performing any assembly. An inside delivery can be requested involving additional charges. Freight carriers also offer a service with extra cost called Curb-side delivery this will be performed to avoid any possible damage that may occur while unloading and moving the furniture from the delivery truck to your home. All of our furniture pieces are securely packed using foam, carboard and shrink wrap as they travel directly from the factory.
It would be unfortunate, if the small trip between the delivery truck and your home, the furniture pieces are subject to unecessary damage. Curb side delivery is highly beneficial for the consumer, as the consumer himself can take the effort and time to appropriately manuever the furniture inside the home without any risk of a rushed delivery being preformed by the freight delivery company.
If you choose a third party delivery, neither Addison House nor the manufacturer of your merchandise make any guarantees or assurances that the merchandise, as packed by the third party, will fit through doorways or passages of your home, office, or other delivery destination. Upon reciept of your merchandise by the third party carrier freight servicem all risk of loss or damage is entirely the responsibility of that third party carrier. In addition, Addison house is not responsible for any delays in scheduling or actual delivery of your merchandise once the merchandise has been recieved by the third party carrier or any damages sustained in connection with the furniture delivery and set-up by the third party carrier. It shall be solely the customers responsibility to coordinate any claims for freight damage, repairs or returns with the third party carriers claims department and NOT with Addison House. Any unauthorized returns of merchandise to the manufacturers factory or to Addison House will not be accepted.
