frequently asked questions
How should I prepare for the installation?
We will move the big stuff (sofas, coffee tables, nightstands, beds, dressers, etc.). You’re responsible for clearing the small items on your furniture and emptying the closets. Please don’t empty your belongings onto the bed as we may have to move that as well. If we need to move appliances, please make sure that you’ve disconnected plumbing and/or electrical connections beforehand.
How long will it take to install my products after they've been ordered?
The length of the project will vary according to the material you’ve chosen. For in-stock material, installation can be completed in as early as two weeks after the signing of the contract. For special orders, the process will take longer. Your Sales Associate will let you know your specific timing based on what you’ve selected.
Who will contact me to schedule the installation?
As soon as we’ve received all the materials needed to complete your project, an Installation Manager will call you to schedule the installation.
