Shipping Information

I have been shipping furniture by UPS, blanket wrapped delivery and common carrier for over 30 years. I know how to pack your furniture so that it arrives in the same condition as it left my shop. All furniture is boxed, wrapped or crated with the same care as we built it. This is not inexpensive but it is less expensive than having to ship it back for repairs. We do not claim to offer "free shipping" and then hide the shipping costs in the price of the furniture. ( If you choose to pick up your furniture at the workshop rather than having it shipped you don't have to still pay for that "free shipping".)You pay what it costs us to pack and ship your furniture and not a penny more.

The following shipping methods are available. If you have any questions about shipping please don't hesitate to call or email.

Customer Pick Up:
If you would like to you can pick up your order at our shop in Putney, Vermont. Orders picked up at the shop as well as orders shipped or delivered to Vermont addresses are subject to Vermont 6% sales tax.

Some of my furniture is small enough (or disassembles) to fit into UPS size and weight restrictions. These items with their shipping costs are noted on their catalog pages and will show up in your shopping cart when you place your order if you choose UPS as the shipping method.

Blanket wrapped delivery service:
This is the best option for larger individual pieces or for multi-piece orders. With this option your furniture is blanket wrapped in my shop and delivered to your home by professional movers. There are several companies I work with that take extremely good care of your furniture, place it exactly where you want it in your home and will even do simple assembly of furniture if necessary. The transit time for blanket wrapped delivery is usually several weeks. In most cases the furniture is picked up at my workshop, brought to the shipper's facility and loaded onto a truck headed to your area. Occasionally furniture will be picked up by a truck as it is headed in your direction. When your furniture is completed we will get a transit time estimate from the shipper. The shipper will contact you directly to arrange the delivery. Please call or email for a delivery quote. If you pick this shipping option (delivery) with a shopping cart order no shipping costs will show up on your cart.

Common Carrier:
Occasionally none of the above shipping options are possible (ie shipping to Hawaii or overseas) so your furniture is crated and shipped by common carrier. We personally build the shipping crates and receive substantial discounts on the trucking costs. The disadvantages of this method are that you only get "curb side" delivery, the crates are very heavy on large pieces and you will need to handle uncrating and disposal of the crating materials. We would be happy to estimate your crating and shipping cost prior to your placing an order. Please call or email for a quote. If you pick this shipping option with a shopping cart order no shipping costs will show up on your cart.
