Direct Shipping FAQ
Don't want to deal with delivery or pickup? No problem! I offer factory direct shipping for a select group of products. Want some more good news? Now I've included the cost of shipping within the price of all my items that ship directly to your house. Pretty cool, huh?!
What is Direct Shipping?
Some Value Express products ship direct from the manufacturer. Shipping fees are included in the price for these products. Direct Ship products are shipped via Fedex typically within 3 to 5 business days, and are not available for pickup. An email with FedEx tracking information is sent once the order ships. Some assembly may be required for Direct Ship items. Look for the Shipping Included badge or browse all Shipping Included products here.
Is there a fee for Direct Shipping?
I believe in making things simple and easy, so I've included the cost of shipping in the price of the products. You don't need to do any extra math, trying to add the cost of shipping to the cost of the product. Math was not my favorite subject! Just shop, select, ship and sit back and wait for your product to be delivered right to your doorstep. And while you're wating, maybe binge on my favorite docuseries, "The History of Furniture"! The episode on the evolution of the sofa arm and sectional arm is amazing!
