CRATING, CARTONING & DELIVERY
Crating and cartoning are an additional cost which must be included and acknowledged on the original purchase order. Individual crating fees are listed in the Price Guide, and are subject to change if special crating requests are made, whether for installation or assembly purposes.
Knockdown (KD) crating is available upon request, and is subject to approval by Joseph Jeup, Inc., as not all pieces are recommended for this option. This could be due to the nature of the design and structure of the piece, unlikely ease of on-site assembly and installation, or risk of damage to the piece during freight transit inside the crate.
In all cases it is the responsibility of the purchaser to determine if the size of the completed furniture can be accepted through entry doors, windows, etc. Joseph Jeup, Inc. does not accept responsibility or liability where on-site conditions and limitations prevent final delivery of items.
