Buying a piece of furniture online can be stressful, especially when it is high-end. Since you don’t have the physical object in front of you, it can be harder to convince yourself to buy it: will it look exactly as it does in the picture? Is it made of quality materials? Will it be the size you expect?
Rest assured, if you follow a few precautions, you can safely buy a piece of furniture online and make sure that you are satisfied with your purchase. The following guidelines will help you make an informed choice during your next online shopping session!
Buy your furniture from a reputable online source
The first instinct to have is to make sure you buy from a reputable furniture retailer. Choose a store with a name you are familiar with and that has been in business for several years. This makes it more likely to find a reliable and efficient online shopping service. If possible, we also recommend choosing a Quebec store so that you can benefit from a better after-sales service in case you are not fully satisfied.
Read the description of the piece of furniture before you buy it and check the dimensions
Whether it’s a new sofa for your living room or a dining table, it is always essential to be familiar with the product before making a purchase. Any good online furniture store should offer a description sheet for each of its products, including the dimensions and manufacturing materials of each piece of furniture. Knowing the materials the furniture was made with will help you guarantee its quality.
Furthermore, you should know the exact dimensions of the piece of furniture before you buy it to make sure that it will fit into your space. You certainly want to avoid receiving a table that is too big for the dining room, or a sofa that is too small to accommodate the whole family!
Understand how shipping fees and return policy work before buying furniture online
Make sure you understand how the retailer’s delivery charges work and ask about their return policy to avoid any unpleasant surprises. If possible, buy from a store that offers at least 30 days to return the furniture at no extra charge.
