The Hobby Hideaway armoire consists of a lower and upper cabinet. They are fully assembled in our plant with all options and accessories (where applicable) and no further assembly is required. For shipping purposes, however, we must remove the upper cabinet from the lower cabinet. Both cabinets remain assembled and are crated on individual pallets for safe shipping. An average lower cabinet (crated) weighs around 200 Lbs and an average upper cabinet (crated) weighs around 225-250 Lbs. A pair of side cabinets (if ordered) is shipped on a third pallet weighing approximately 150 Lbs.
In Southern California we normally deliver the armoires or they can be will-called with a standard size pick-up-truck or full sized van (not a mini van or SUV). The Mini Workstation will fit in a standard size SUV.
The pallets are shipped by motor freight. These trucking companies are only required to deliver a shipment to the consigned address, Every delivery situation is different but normally a driver will assist in placing the shipment in a reasonable location such as a garage etc. They do not deliver inside a residence or up stairs and they do not unpack the shipment. To be safe, our advice is to have someone besides yourself to help receive the shipment.
In many areas a service known as "white glove delivery" is available. They will deliver, unpack and assemble the shipment, and remove the shipping debris. Please let us know prior to shipment if that service is desired.
A delivery time window will be confirmed with you by the freight company. Payment for freight charges will be due by prior arrangments with the freight company or us.
If you have relationships with certain carriers we will be happy to ship via the carrier of your choice.
