Do I need to be home to sign for my furniture?
We ship all of our furniture via UPS Ground, which means if you are not home at the time of delivery, the driver will leave it right at your front door or wherever large packages are usually left! Leaving the furniture is at the driver’s discretion, so in some locations, they may not leave the furniture so they can safely re-deliver it the next business day.
No signature is required to receive the furniture unless you’re shipping to a place of business, in which case someone will need to sign for the order. If you’d like to require a signature for a home delivery, just let us know and we can arrange for that. Please keep in mind that once added, a signature request cannot be removed and someone will need to be present to sign for the package.
Note: If you live in an apartment building or walk-up or have any special instructions for the driver, contact UPS personally at 1 (800) 742-5877 once your tracking number goes live, or you can reach out to us and we’d be happy to pass along any notes.

If Slim Furniture is so great, why does it cost so little?
Typically, furniture manufacturers sell their products through dealers, Furniture dealers like to get a wholesale margin, which is the minimum profit they would like to receive for vending a product. On top of that dealers like to add additional margin to see how much the public will pay for a new product, then mark it down at a later date to make buyers feel like they are getting a deal. This traditional sales model is great at adding additional fees that drive prices up and quality down. By selling directly to you, without having to cover the costs of brick and mortar locations, we get to work on driving the price down and quality up.
How does Slim Furniture compare to typical knock-down furniture?
Typical knock-down or flat-pack furniture is designed to be affordable and easy to ship. While these metrics are sound, the method achieve them is flawed. Most flat pack furniture boxes are filled with laminated particle board and an assorted bag of threaded fasteners. These materials often lead to structural or part failure when it comes to moving the furniture. With Slim Furniture you pay for a product that moves easily, but is also made from real wood, steel, high-resilience foam and utilizes only 2 ratchet straps that hold each module together.
Why are you called Slim Furniture?
When we started the company, we were looking for an acronym to capture the spirit of what we were trying to convey to the public. Slim is short for “See Logic In Moving”. As the company moved forward, the name has evolved into promoting utility and function.
Why is my order status not being updated?
We do not update the order status until your furniture has shipped. Once your order has shipped you will receive an email with the shipping details. If more than a week has passed, please send us an email at support or let us know by phone at (844) 600-7546 so we can further assist.
Can you ship internationally?
We are not currently shipping internationally. When we send our furniture to customers, it’s not just the product we’re providing but the full service. We want to be able to assist every customer to the best of our ability, though our 30-day trial and warranties.
If something happened to the furniture, like a warranty issue or you want to return, we’d want to take care of it. However, being out of our service region means we wouldn’t be able to. We wouldn’t want to put you in that position.
