Cabinet Shipping Policy

    In order for cabinet orders to go as smoothly as possible, please read the following cabinet order specifications and conditions. 1. Sewing furniture ships via freight truck and not UPS or Fed Ex Ground. Because of this, someone needs to be at home to receive, inspect and sign for the product at delivery. 2. Provide us with as many phone numbers as possible to ensure that the shipping company can contact you and make a delivery appointment. 3. We will request that the freight truck will include lift gate and pallet jack service. Lift Gate will unload the product off of the end of the truck. Pallet jack service will roll the pallet of furniture up to your garage or porch as long as it is a somewhat flat surface from the road to the house. This ends the driver’s responsibility. The driver is not obligated to remove the cabinets from the boxes or to get the furniture inside the house. We do offer that service in many of the markets in Canada and the U.S. Just discuss if that is the option you would prefer. 4. When you sign the delivery receipt from the freight companies driver it is a legal contract that states that you received the product in acceptable condition. Always inspect your shipment thoroughly before signing for it. If you notice slight damage where a replacement part could be sent to you and you can install it, just note the damage on all copies of the delivery receipt and we will send you the replacement parts. If the product is damaged beyond this then refuse the shipment. It is your right to inspect your product. Do not sign for or accept the product if the driver does not allow you to inspect it. If the merchandise leaves the delivery location, you assume all responsibility. It will not be possible to file a freight claim. Freight claims on hidden or concealed damage rarely get approved so again always inspect your shipment thoroughly before signing for it. Please call within 24 hours to report a problem. 1.800.428.2804 in the U.S.A. and 800.565.7557 in Canada. 5. Save your box and all packaging materials until you are certain that your cabinet and all accessories are in satisfactory condition. 6. If we need to ship replacements for damaged goods, we will ship them out as soon as possible. We cannot overnight or expedite your replacement shipment. Replacement of accepted damaged products will only occur when funds are received from the shipping company. If the freight claim is denied and you did not inspect the cabinet and have signed for it in good condition, the damaged product is your responsibility. 7. Inserts are usually shipped out via UPS and customarily do not arrive at the same time as your cabinet. Delivery on inserts can take up to three weeks for delivery due to the time it takes to custom manufacture your insert for your brand and model of sewing machine. 8. Remember to call us before signing for the product if you do not understand this delivery agreement. It is no problem. We will be happy to walk you through the steps.
    Problems can always be solved more smoothly if the proper channels are followed. In order to ensure your satisfaction with your purchase, we need your cooperation with these guidelines. Please Note: By ordering from our website, you are indicating that you have read and understood these guidelines.
