Below are some frequently asked questions about shipping our furniture:
What is customary in the industry?
Our shipping and processing charges are intended to compensate our company for processing your order, handling and packing the products you purchase,
delivering them to you, and covering related overhead.
Our freight rates are calculated by dimensional weight of the furniture. The size and weight of the carton and destination zip code will provide us with information to
pass on to you, our valued customer. Our store is located in Oceanside, California (north San Diego County); our furniture is warehoused in Brea, CA at our
distribution Center. This is in Los Angeles County, CA
How long will it take to receive my furniture?
You can expect your purchase to deliver within 2 - 8 business days. Exceptions, such as bad weather will be taken into consideration as to the time of delivery.
Once your order is at the HUB or receiving center near your delivery address, you can expect a call to set up a time for the delivery that is convenient for you.
How are shipping and freight rates calculated?
The rates we quote are "curbside" delivery rates. This means that the driver will deliver to your driveway or curb in front of your home or business. Most drivers are
friendly and accommodating and will set your box (es) inside your garage or out of the weather if there is a place to do so. This is not guaranteed, but in over 12
years of business, we have yet to hear of a driver who was not willing to help our customers if the driver has the time.
What types of delivery services are available?
White glove and threshold deliveries are offered at a higher rate, and we will be happy to give you a quote for this, as
well. With white glove service, the delivery agent will bring the box(es) into your home, business, or office, remove the furniture from boxes and remove the packing
materials and boxes. With threshold delivery, the box(es) are brought inside your front door or entry only.
What if there is assembly required?
The only items that require any type of assembly is our 5 piece sectional chairs, 3 piece sofa, 2 piece love seat, or chaise lounge. There is attaching hardware on the
bottom edge of each chair. By simply reaching and feeling for the swinging C shaped bracket, one can attach it to a bolt on the adjacent chair. Tightening the wing
nut will secure
the chairs from sliding apart. There are brackets on two sides of each chair so the chairs can be arranged in different
arrangements i. e. a 5 piece sectional with 3 corner chairs and 2 armless chairs can be made into the following designs.
Where do we ship to?
We ship to the contiguous U.S., and Canada. We, however, will be happy to get a quote for those of you who live in the Caribbean or Hawaii. The heavy furniture
is palletized and shipped to a coastal or border city, whereby a customs broker will help you make arrangements to get the furniture to your destination outside the
country. We will collect the freight or shipping to that particular coastal or border city, and from there you would work with the broker and pay him or her for the
shipping and freight charges are quite a bit less. If this is possible we can compare both rates for you.
How is the furniture packed and what do I do when the delivery arrives?
All of our furniture is packed securely in triple wall constructed boxes, have corner protectors, packing materials, bubble wrap, etc.; the cushions are sealed in plastic.
Heavy items are palletized and shrink wrapped for a secure journey from California to its destination. Boxes that are made in Bali are recycled and sometime appear
dinged or dented in, but the furniture inside will in most cases be fine, unless a fork lift misses its mark. :) That will be clearly evident. Ask the driver to make All of our
furniture is packed securely in triple wall constructed boxes, have corner protectors, packing materials, bubble wrap, etc.; the cushions are sealed in note on the
delivery ticket of any damage. We will change out the item(s) or credit your credit card. Please refer to returning an item.
We ask that you inspect each item quickly before signing off on the delivery ticket. Signing means you are accepting the furniture in good condition. If you see a
suspicious looking box, ask the driver to wait while you inspect inside the box. The driver is required to wait. If you have any questions or concerns, you may call us
and we'll speak with the driver. Most of the time, the drivers know that if there is something that looks suspicious they expect you to want to open the box.
What do I do if I find damage?
If you see there is damage on one of your items, you may accept the order, but please make note on the delivery ticket regarding the damage and the item
damaged. Get a copy of the delivery ticket from the driver. This way it will there will be fewer questions and to have an insurance claim paid to us. We would
appreciate that as well.
If there is only one item damaged, you can send that one item back with the driver, with a note on the delivery ticket that it's damaged and you are refusing that
particular item, i.e. chair. . Next give us a call within 24 hours notifying us of the damage, followed by an email to: Info@OceansideLivingAndDecor.com. Our phone
number is: 760-231-5959. Someone will contact you if you are leaving a message.
