Handling New Furniture Delivery With 3 Simple Guidelines


Furniture is what turns an empty house into a warm and cosy living space. You can have custom-made furniture for your specific taste, or you can choose to have ready-made pieces delivered to you from an online supplier. The second method is becoming very popular because all you have to do is choose the colour, style and design that suits your taste and budget. The companies deliver the furniture to your location.

However, before these deliveries are made, it is crucial to make sure you follow the right steps. Here are the steps to follow when handling furniture delivery. 

Check the Measurements

When assessing online furniture, it is advisable to look at its length, width and height. If the item is posted on an online webpage, it should have a description that includes all the dimensions of the pieces. 

When you get the dimensions, take a measuring tape and measure out the space you intend to place the piece. If it is a sofa, measure the space in your living room and see if it fits. Do not make an order before confirming it can fit your space to avoid having to return it.

Measure the Path From the Street to Your Room

Most people have a very easy time when dealing with measurements inside the house. However, corridors, verandas and paths from the street might be narrower than the room. When the furniture is wider than the opening it is going through, it becomes extremely difficult to get it inside the house without damages.

If the piece of furniture cannot be disassembled, make sure that you measure the path from the street to the house. This will help you determine if it can safely get inside your house. If the furniture cannot get inside the house, check for other delivery routes or order something that will comfortably fit the space.

Check the Delivery Terms and Conditions

Every company has its terms and conditions on selling goods online. The terms include possible payment for the delivery and whether goods that have been sold can be returned. Deal with companies that have insurance because this makes it easy to return and have it replaced if the delivery company ruins it.

These are simple considerations that will improve your furniture delivery experience. As long as you order your furniture from trusted dealers, you can be assured that it will arrive in perfect condition, and you will have a positive shopping experience.

Storing old books

My dad was a huge collector of old books. He had such a beautiful collection when he passed away, and he left it all to me. I don't have enough space to display them yet, but I do want to hold onto them so that when I have enough space I can set up a library at home and really enjoy them. This blog is all about how to store old books for a long period of time, so that they stay in great condition. I hope it will be useful for other people with big collections of vintage books.
