A redelivery fee may occur if the customer is not at home when delivery is attempted.
For most furniture deliveries, we or our courier will contact the customer prior to delivery. If the customer confirms a delivery time but is then not at home to accept delivery at the arranged time, we will be charged a redelivery fee and in turn we will have to pass on that charge to the customer. (If the delivery was a "free shipping" delivery, we will pass on the original "redelivery bill" which is usually 75% of the original freight charge.) It is important that the customer arranges a delivery time when they are sure to be at home to avoid any redelivery fees.
