Important Shipping Information
The freight carrier will contact you 24-48 hours prior to delivery to arrange a delivery time. The phone number used to contact you will be the daytime and evening phone numbers provided during checkout. Available delivery times will vary depending on the freight carrier’s schedule.
Before signing the carrier’s delivery receipt please inspect the carton for any damage; crushing, dents, creasing, etc., and note this on the delivery receipt. Once you sign the delivery receipt and accept the shipment the driver will depart and it will be your responsibility to unpack the item. The driver is not required to wait for you to un-wrap the item and inspect it unless there is visible damage to the package. Always sign for any shipment with the notation, "pending inspection". This will cover us if the shipment arrives with concealed damage.
If, during delivery, it is obvious that there is damage, you may ask the driver to open the carton and inspect the contents with you. Upon inspection, if damage is found you may refuse the shipment and write, "Refused, due to damage" on the delivery receipt. Be sure to keep a copy of the delivery receipt with your damage notations and contact Open Air Lifestyles, LLC immediately. After accepting delivery, please keep all packaging materials for 30 days in case you discover damage or defects after delivery.
WHITE GLOVE DELIVERY
White Glove Delivery is a specific delivery option available on all orders. When ordered, we will ship the furniture to a furniture delivery specialist in your area. They will then contact you to schedule a time and date for delivery. They will send out uniformed delivery people, carefully unpack your merchandise and assemble it in the room of your choice. They then haul away all packaging. White Glove Service must be ordered prior to the shipment of your furniture.
CURB SIDE DELIVERY
Unless otherwise specified, all shipments are shipped via common carrier and arrive for a curb side delivery. The carrier will call you to schedule a time and date for delivery. The trucking company will use a liftgate or assist you in bringing the merchandise off the truck. They are not allowed into the home and generally there is only one driver and he will not have dollies or tools necessary to move furniture. For curb side deliveries, please make all necessary arrangements to take possession of the furniture at the truck.
Although, most items are in stock, it does not mean they can ship within 48 hours. Many of them require careful inspection and extensive packing. We understand that you are eager to get your beautiful furniture, but we feel protecting your investment is just as important. Many items are delivered within 14 days but please allow up to 4-6 weeks on some items. Your credit card is NOT charged until the merchandise is ready for carrier pick up.
PREPARATION OF MERCHANDISE TO PREVENT DAMAGE
All merchandise is inspected prior to shipping, everything is corner protected, put in boxes, placed on shipping pallets and shrink wrapped. We also have special handling agreements with all carriers we use.
WHAT SHOULD I EXPECT FROM THE FREIGHT COMPANY UPON ARRIVAL?
On all freight orders, the shipping company will contact you when they arrive in your town to arrange a time and date for delivery. The delivery drivers are not insured to bring your merchandise into the home. Please make all necessary arrangements to assist with the delivery of your items. Also, we do offer white glove service with inside set up and packing removal at an additional cost, please inquire. Please note: unless you purchase white glove service some assembly may be required. Level of assembly will vary based on merchandise.
