Upon placing an order, you will receive an email confirmation upon request and a mailed copy of your purchase for review and confirmation of your order.
We are Glad you asked!!
Since we sell so much furniture, we are able to work on a much lower profit margin than your local store can. Because of our volume on the name brands we carry we are able to qualify for bulk discounts that we can then pass on to you.

We do not charge sales tax, except on items shipped to South Carolina (8%). Local or state laws may vary concerning purchases shipped to you from "out of state". We will leave it up to you to report if you deem necessary. Some states do randomly check our delivery slips at interstate checkpoints and send out requests for individuals to pay the sales tax.
We ask for 1/2 of the total purchase price to be paid upon ordering. The remaining amount is due when the furniture arrives in our warehouse. The delivery amount is due at the time of order. The delivery company will take cash, certified check or money order.
2. Most credit cards unlike other forms of payment offer you better buyer protection and in many cases, extended warranties.
The delivery times depends a great deal upon availability. If the items are in stock at the manufacturer, we average 4 – 8 weeks on the East Coast and 6 – 12 weeks on the West Coast for delivery. There is a great chance you will receive your items quicker and we will always do everything we can to insure timely delivery. Please Note: These are estimates, not guarantees. When it comes to delivery times, we are at the mercy of the manufacturer. Normally we are able to pick up your furniture from the mfg. within 2-4 weeks of your order. At that point your furniture will be on the next truck to your area which is about every 1- 3 weeks on the East Coast, and 3-5 weeks on the West Coast. If we see there's going to be an unusual delay in your shipment, we will notify you.
You may cancel your order anytime after placing your order. If your furniture has not been put into production at the factory, you may cancel it at no charge. However, if the item is already in production, you will be responsible for up to a 50% restocking fee. If at the time of delivery you decide you do not want the furniture or thought it would match your decor better, you can refuse the shipment, at this point you would only be charged the delivery fee and a restocking fee. After our delivery team has left your house and you decide to return the furniture, simply return the furniture to us at your expense and we will gladly give you a refund less up to 50% restocking fee. You may contact us at any time to check the status of your order.
You will be contacted by our in-home delivery service approximately 3-4 days before delivery. They will give you the day and time (within a four hour window) the delivery should be made. Deliveries are made seven days a week from 8am to 10pm. If you have a special request for delivery to be made during certain times of the day or days of the week please tell us when placing the order so it can be scheduled appropriately.
Please note: -- Since our delivery service makes on average 25-50 deliveries per trip over a 3-5 day period, they may experience unforeseen situations which may cause your delivery to be delayed into a new time frame or to the next day. If this does happen, our in-home delivery service will contact you with a new delivery time. We will always try to be on time for deliveries, but we do ask for you to be flexible.
Our Suggestion – Our home delivery service will be glad to try to accommodate any special request you may have, so please when they are scheduling your delivery please ask them so that they may accommodate you.
White Glove Delivery Includes - Our delivery service will unbox the furniture, place it in the room of your choice and assemble any items that need assembly. They will attach the mirror to the dresser, assemble the bed and level any items that may have shifted during delivery. Due to insurance restrictions, our delivery service is unable to hang mirrors directly on walls. Due to the large number of deliveries made on a single trip, our delivery personnel cannot transport the used packaging materials and cannot be responsible for hauling off the cardboard or packaging debris. Please instruct the delivery personnel where you would like the debris to be placed for your local bulk garbage pickup.
Drop Off (Curbside) Delivery Includes – Our delivery service will unload the items from the truck and place them at your discretion in your garage, driveway, or at your doorstep. They will not unbox the items. You will need to be prepared to inspect the furniture as our delivery team will be on a tight schedule and will have limited time to wait.
2. Please measure your room and stairways if applicable to make sure the furniture will fit properly. Some of the items we sell are very large and do not go up stairways with turns very well. If you are unsure if an item will fit, please ask your sales person for exact measurements prior to ordering. It is the customer’s responsibility to make sure all items will fit.
Yes, you can. We have two locations you can pick the furniture up from. Either our warehouse here in Florence, SC or from our delivery service in Highpoint, NC. There is a pick up fee which varies by order, if you would like to pick it up let us know and we will get the pick fee amount form our delivery service. This amount helps cover shipping from the manufacturer.
Special Note: We do ask for you to completely inspect the furniture at the time of pick-up. Once it leaves our dock on your vehicle, we can not be responsible for damage. If you do find a manufacturer defect once you get home, please call us so we can assist you with getting it corrected. On large orders, we strongly recommend that you allow us to delivery the items. Delivery includes insurance and by the time you add up the cost to rent a truck, you will most likely not be saving very much.
If at the time of delivery you decide you do not want the furniture or thought it would match your decor better, you can refuse the shipment, at this point you would only be charged the delivery fee and a restocking fee. After our delivery team has left your house and you decide to return the furniture, simply return the furniture to us at your expense and we will gladly give you a refund less a restocking fee. You may contact us at any time to check the status of your order.
I have searched a great deal and found another discount dealer with slightly lower prices. Will you match their price?
We normally have the lowest prices around and we are constantly checking with our competitors to make sure that stays true. If you are able to find a lower price, we will certainly try to match the entire price including delivery and setup. Many companies may offer slightly lower prices on the furniture but charge more for delivery.
Remember, price certainly matters but is not everything, we are confident overall you will have a much better experience with us than other discount dealers. CONTACT US
What happens if I order something and it comes in damaged or defective? Occasionally, the furniture may experience minor damage during shipment or it may contain manufacturer defects. Please take your time an inspect all the furniture upon delivery and denote any damages or defects on the delivery ticket(bill of lading), as it is much easier to have these problems corrected when denoted on the delivery ticket. PLEASE DENOTE ON DELIVERY SLIP EVEN IF YOU KEEP AN ITEM
If your delivery is taking place during our normal business hours, 10-6 Mon. – Fri. & 10 –4, on Sat., please call us and we will help you determine what to do.
If your delivery is taking place after our normal business hours please contact our on call customer service person and they will help you determine what to do. The phone number will be provided before your scheduled delivery time. If you have misplaced the number the delivery team will be able to give you the number.
Damaged Furniture: If you are directed to keep the piece of furniture that is damaged we will we have a professional furniture technician come to your home and correct the problem. If the problem is not corrected to your satisfaction, we will have a new piece sent to you at no additional cost. If you are directed to refuse the item we will have it replaced or repaired (per our manufacturer’s recommendation) and redelivered to you at no additional cost. In the event an item is returned you may request a credit for that item until the item is returned to your home. Please take your time and inspect the furniture upon delivery, as it is much easier to have any problems corrected if they are noted on the delivery receipt.
For extremely simple fixes such as replacing a broken handle, we will Fed-ex the parts to you and ask you to install them.
When a repair is done, you will never know it was repaired!! The in-house repair technicians used by our delivery service are more than simple repairmen, they are more like artists. We guarantee their work and if you are not completely satisfied when the item is returned please refuse the item and a new one will be ordered. We have that much confidence in their ability.
In trying to keep expenses low (and in turn your prices), we do not print paper catalogs. Instead, we encourage you to add items that show no price to your quote cart and submit it for pricing. If a picture is not available on our web site of the piece you are interested in please let your sales rep know and one can be emailed to you. If you find an item on one of our manufacturer web sites that is not on our web site please email it to us and one of our sales associates will contact you with pricing information. CONTACT US
You can contact us anytime to check on your order but please allow 6-8 weeks from point of purchase before making an inquiry.
Our address is 813 West Bobo Newsom Hwy Hartsville, SC 29550 Our e-mail address is mailto:email@example.com
Adding items to our Quote Cart will not get automated pricing sent to you via e-mail, one of our sales representatives will contact you with pricing and information. We do this for two reasons, one we want to make sure you receive the most up to date specials and pricing and two we want to build a relationship that will last beyond one purchase.
