At Shelter, we understand that planning a delivery to get your precious new pieces safely can be a difficult task. Thats why we offer a few simple ways and tips for you to receive your products.

Preparing For Your Delivery

  • To prepare your home for a safe and efficient delivery, be sure to set your rugs in the desired place, remove any frames or artwork from walls that may be susceptible to damage, secure any low-hanging light fixtures, remove any doors that may be necessary, and place any pets in another room of your home.
  • If you live in a building that requires the use of an elevator, be sure to book its use in advance.
  • During the winter, please make sure that any driveways and walkways are clear of snow and ice as the safety of your products and our delivery team are of the highest importance.

     Inspecting Your Merchandise

    • Our team thoroughly inspects every product before it leaves our warehouse and you (or the person you’ve deemed responsible as your designate) must take the time to inspect the merchandise to make sure that there are no damages or manufacturer defects.
    • Many items are hand-crafted and utilize natural materials and therefore one can expect variations between a floor model, photos, or swatches.
    • Upon pick-up or delivery, you will be asked to sign as acceptance of your merchandise and affirm that it is free of damage and manufacturer defects. If you should notice any damages or manufacturer defects upon delivery, please email our customer service manager at Jason@shelterfurniture.ca with images of the damages so that we can properly assess the nature of the issue and deal with it accordingly.
    • Failure to provide immediate notification of damages or manufacturer defects may impede your ability to submit a claim for resolution.
    • Please note that after we have been made aware of the issue, it may take up to five business days to formulate a plan that addresses your claim. Depending on the nature of the claim, we may have one of our trained technicians resolve the issue to your satisfaction, arrange a replacement of the product altogether or offer an alternate product if stock of the original item is not readily available.
