Delivery and Installation
Buyers may purchase just delivery, or delivery with installation. For all orders placed online, please indicate interest in receiving an installation charge. As installation charges are unique to each order, a Transfer Enterprises’ team member will contact you directly with the fee.
Delivery is charged by zone pricing to a business loading dock or outside entrance during normal business hours. Normal business hours are stated as 8:30am – 4pm. Delivery charges do not include installation of product, placement of product, or unwrapping of product. The driver will not bring the purchased product into the building.
Installation charges are determined by the quantity and type of products purchased, as well as the conditions of the building in which the product is being installed. Installation conditions include, but are not limited to: dimensions of doorways, number of doors that the product must be carried through, availability of a loading dock, access to the building (i.e. elevators, stairs), structure limitations, parking limitations and the presence of a person to accept delivery at the time scheduled. Delivery conditions are based off representations made by the buyer at the time of sale. Any variations from the buyer’s representation of delivery conditions are the responsibility of the buyer. The buyer will pay additional charges for any misrepresentations. The seller will provide the cost of any additional charges prior to the start of the delivery. If a delivery is not completed as a result of any misrepresentation of building conditions and/or the buyer declines to pay the determined, additional charges, the buyer will pay a restocking fee of 25% of the total invoice price. The delivery charge will not be refunded.
All office space areas must be cleared prior to installation. There will be an additional fee if the buyer’s existing furniture needs to be moved in order to complete the installation. There will be an additional fee for Transfer Enterprises to remove and/or dispose of existing furniture.
The installation team will follow space plans provided by your sales representative. Please confirm any layout modifications with your sales representative prior to your installation date. All cubicle installations must have a layout for installers to follow. Transfer Enterprises will supply one at no cost, or the buyer may provide their own. Installers will not deviate from the cubicle layout. For all product purchases other than workstations, the installation team will place purchased furniture at the direction of the buyer unless a predetermined layout is provided. The decision-maker for product placement must be present at the time of the installation. Additional fees will apply if the installation team places, installs, or moves the same product multiple times.
