Furniture Delivery Services | How Companies Operate

April 29, 2011 Leave a comment

Furniture Delivery ServicesGenerally, a furniture delivery company will have several different levels of exemplary service that they will offer you, depending upon the value and nature of your purchase.  Services can expand from white glove services transporting valuable antiques or simple everyday furniture being delivered to your office.

For a small business you want a furniture delivery company that will work for you no matter what the size of the order is.  You should expect your furniture to arrive undamaged and in good time. You should be given a time frame within which to expect your delivery: a good company will clearly stick to this time frame, or call ahead to let you know if there has been an unforeseen change of plan.

A furniture delivery company works much like a removals firm. Your furniture should be securely wrapped in professional quality packing blankets, and anchored to fixings inside the van with removals ties. Your furniture delivery company will pack its vans so that furniture is delivered in a logical order, thereby removing any danger that your purchase may be damaged either when trying to get out someone else’s item, or by trying to release your item from behind other pieces of furniture

As with all companies whose business involves safeguarding and transporting items from people’s homes, the key quality you are looking for in your delivery company is understanding.

There are many reasons why 3PD is the heavy-duty market leader in third-party logistics (3PL) and last-mile delivery.

For one thing, we make nearly 5 million residential, business and job site deliveries every year — all with the help of more than 1,500 highly qualified, uniformed delivery teams.

For another, we’re one of the only last-mile providers with an extensive North American reach. Our presence in approximately 500 locations throughout the United States and Canada enables us to meet nearly every U.S. and Canadian delivery need you might have, all with award-winning service levels.

Finally — and perhaps most important of all — last mile isn’t just our specialty. It’s our only line of business.

We prefer it that way — and so do our clients, because as we see it, companies have a lot riding on that last mile and that last contact with the customer. And we think it deserves nothing less than 100 percent focus, dedication and commitment.
