Before Placing an Order
When looking to place an order for home delivery with our EZ Living Furniture Home Delivery Service it is extremely important to remember to follow some quick steps before placing an order to ensure that your delivery runs as smoothly as possible.
- Step 1 - Check Measurements:
Double check the measurements of the item by visiting our features & dimensions section on the item's webpage on our website. Every item available online comes with dimensions (however if there's a particular measurement you are looking for that's not listed on this page please don't hesitate to ask us!)
- Step 2 - Check the Desired Location:
With the measurements obtained online check to see if this item will fit in the desired location and if you will need to move any existing furniture around to accommodate it.
- Step 3 - Check Path from Street to Room:
To ensure that your home will be accessible by our Home Delivery Team we advise our customers to walk the path that our delivery team will take with your furniture items to the destined room and have your measuring tape with you to take a few simple measurements.
- Measure entryways/front door(s) to ensure that your furniture will fit into your home.
- Measure any elevators (if applicable) ensure that you make a note of any railings/light fixtures that may be in the lift.
- Measure your hallway to the desired room making a note of any tight corners or fixed obstacles that cannot be moved.
- If your home contains stairs, we advise measuring from the top and bottom of the steps to your ceiling and making a note of any landings which may be difficult for our home delivery team to navigate through.
- Measure stairs width to ensure there is enough space to transport the item.
- Keep a note of measurements of light fixtures or any fixed obstacles which may interfere with your delivery.
- Measure all interior doors and door frames to ensure the items will be delivered to your desired room.
By now you should know whether your item is going to fit in your desired location and you can finally place your order with us. If you have any queries regarding measurements taken or if you're still unsure or have any questions about delivery please contact us here. Once you place your order you can sit back and relax while you wait for your delivery to be scheduled and booked in.
The Day of the Delivery
It's finally here! While you prepare for your delivery to arrive there is a number of steps we advise customers to go through just before our Home Delivery Team arrive, this includes preparing your home and clearing obstacles that may block our delivery team's path.
- Step 1 - Make sure someone is home
It is important to ensure that someone is at home at the time of your delivery to accept your order for you. This can be a friend, neighbour or relative who is above the ages of 16+.
- Step 2 - Ensure your driveway is clear
If you have a driveway or front garden we predict that you may need to move any obstacles between the road and your front door. This can include moving any vehicles that may be parked, clearing walkways/driveways or moving building materials.
- Step 3 - Clear all hallways/entryways
If there are any furniture items existing in your hallway or entryway which may obstruct our delivery team we would suggest moving these items out of the way until after our delivery team has left.
- Step 4 - Protecting your flooring
Our delivery team take extra care to ensure that flooring is not damaged when they assemble or deliver items to your home. However, we suggest that customers tape down brown paper or newspaper on their flooring to ensure that this is protected and kept clean during delivery.
And now you should be all set for your delivery to arrive! How exciting!
