When I used to go to parties, not so long ago, I get asked these questions constantly:
“Where should I go to get furniture?” “What is the best?” “I have made so many mistakes, and I am tired of wasting my money!” “Just tell me what to do!”
It’s no wonder. There seem to be so many options today. There are online sites now that frankly, only make shopping more confusing than ever before. The shipping issues alone are enough to pull your hair out. Wrap your head around this: 20-35% of all furniture and home goods shipped (yes, white glove included) end up damaged and have to be returned! Damaged pieces are a battle to get replaced and can take weeks and even months. Twenty to thirty-five percent! At Tran + Thomas, we have a full-time person on staff just to deal with all of those shipping issues for our clients so they never have to worry.
- Access to “unlimited” styles
- Can get good pricing/sales
- Shop from the comfort of your home
- Risky/quality unpredictable
- Must deal with delivery damages/repacking/returns on 20-35% of all items, including “white glove”
- Miss great items because they didn’t photograph well or couldn’t find them, best items are lost in the shuffle
- Vendor reliability and responsibility uncertain and slow, as you are “just a number”
- Can’t see finish/touch/sit
- “Unlimited” options add to confusion and are quite limited
- Must coordinate delivery/installation for each item
- Can be less expensive/deals, but like anything else, you “pay” with time, headache and shipping issues
- “Bait and switch” stories are everywhere
- Shifting and inconsistent pricing
- See finish in person/touch/sit
- Get a true sense of size/scale
- Free sales help
- Time consuming visiting locations
- Leave the house/crowds
- Limited selection by store and what each offers
- Generally mainstream (“everybody has one”)
- Sales help doesn’t know your whole vision, goals and concerns and may unintentionally steer you to left field.
