Shipping and Returns
Most items (not freight items) are in-stock and ship from the warehouse in 3-5 business days. You should expect to receive your purchase in about 7-10 business days depending on the manufacturer location and ship times. Occasionally there are problems with a backlog in the shipping departments, weather, and/or customs, and the item may take longer to arrive to you. Herringbone & Company is not liable for shipping delays due to carrier issues, weather, delays by the manufacturer, and delays in customs. In the event of a delay, we will notify you by email. Items ordered together may come from different suppliers and therefore may not arrive at the same time. Due to the custom nature of many of our items delivery lead times will vary.
If a product you have ordered is out of stock or on backorder, we will contact you with an estimated shipment date and you can decide to either keep the order as is, cancel the item or cancel the entire order. Occasionally issues arise that may lead to additional production time, such as our manufacturers experiencing a backup in production, or products in transit from overseas factories or situations that arise that are out of our control. If this is the case you will be alerted as soon as we are made aware that a problem exists. If you need any item ASAP, please contact customer service to verify stock information and availability PRIOR to placing your order.
FURNITURE AND OTHER LARGE ITEMS SHIPPING FREIGHT Shipping time for freight items (this includes furniture, large light fixtures and some rugs) is approximately 2-3 weeks from the time that the item(s) are scheduled for pickup from our manufacturer. We act as your liaison to best assist you in a prompt delivery but again, there are variables that are out of our control as we are considered a third party.
Most carriers schedule deliveries Monday through Friday between the hours of 9:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. Freight companies will contact you at least 48 hours prior to the delivery to schedule a delivery date and time frame (typically 2-4 hour blocks) that works for you. If you need to reschedule the delivery with our carrier, please contact them as soon as possible so as not to incur any charges for missed delivery appointments. If your scheduled appointment is missed, you will be charged a delivery trip fee. Please do not arrange for the item/items to be delivered when no one is home to receive them. If the freight company contacts you to make an appointment for delivery and you are unable to accept the delivery for any period of time, you are subject to storage fees that the freight company will charge for storing your item.
For standard freight delivery, our shippers deliver furniture to your driveway and/or your front door ONLY! If you would like the item placed inside the threshold of your home or in a particular room up to 2 flights of stairs with all packing materials discarded you must contact us to arrange what is called “WHITE GLOVE DELIVERY”. WHITE GLOVE DELIVERY is an EXTRA CHARGE, and is not included in our standard delivery. We do not offer assembly for any of our deliveries. If you ask the delivery company to assist you in assembling an item purchased from us, you are doing so at your own risk and you are responsible for any charges in relationship to the assembly. Freight items can ONLY be shipped within the 48 contiguous states.
DIFFICULT OR CHALLENGING DELIVERY ADDRESSES
