Always ask the sales person the delivery fees of that furniture, appliance or stereo system you’re getting for your home. That’s the bottom line of this post. OK, there’s also some other tips you’ll want to know if you’re having home furnishings delivered.
Many stores, such as rent to own stores, offer delivery in their pricing. They also factor in pick ups as well so if you’re through renting then they come to your home and pick it up. Rent to own employees will also set up your electronics and appliances which is an added bonus. And many times have same day delivery. It’s all a part of their pricing and the convenient factor of renting to own.
Other stores also have free delivery but it’s factored in their overall price.
Those stores that do not factor in delivery in the overall costs will charge you extra, sometimes up to $300 for a living room set. So, be watchful of the costs of the item being delivered to your home. You can get quite the surprise when an additional $100 is added at the end.
Other factors are what to do with any old furniture, refrigerators or TVs. Most will take your old appliances but not TVs nor furniture but it never hurts to ask. Make sure the delivery techs don’t have mud or dirt on their shoes and ask about the timing of delivery. Some stores such as Lowes will take several days to deliver so make sure you ask all of these questions before committing.
