Preparing for Riley’s Real Wood Furniture Delivery

September 12, 2016

At Riley’s, we do all of our deliveries with our own drivers, in our own trucks.  Our crew has years of experience as well as being very knowledgeable about the products they handle. So, when you choose Riley’s for your furniture delivery, you’re making a smart choice. But here are some tips to preparing for the big delivery day! 



Now this may be a step to consider doing BEFORE you purchase your furniture, but nonetheless, you will need to take some measurements before our delivery truck arrives. First, measure the width and ceiling height of any doorways, hallways or stairways that your new furniture will need to travel through. Next, take the width, depth and height measurements of your new furniture pieces and make sure they are less than the measurements you just took. 

Clear items

Clear a pathway through your home to the room where your new furniture will be placed so that our delivery crew can get through easily and safely. Remove or secure any area rugs and door mats to help prevent any tripping hazards. You’ll also want to dispose of your old furniture so that there’s enough room for your new couch or mattress.

Secure pets and children

If you have any pets or small children roaming around the house, it’s best to keep them out of the way to avoid any accidents. During the delivery process doors are left open and heavy items are transported, and you don’t want your dog escaping or your child getting accidently hurt. 

Know the rates

Before delivery day comes, it helps to know how much it’s actually going to cost you. At Riley’s Real Wood Furniture our delivery rates start at just a $50 flat-rate fee for the Eugene and Springfield area. We also deliver to almost the entire state of Oregon and parts of California and Washington. See a sampling of most of our delivery locations and rates here.
