Shipping and Returns
Free Shipping Policy
Certain products on our site are eligible for free shipping dock to dock within the continental United States. Shipping is available only within the contiguous 48 states. We do not ship to any P.O. boxes, international addresses or APO/FPO addresses.
UPS and FedEx Ground
Most of our chairs are are shipped via UPS or Fed-X Ground and are eligible for free shipping. Chairs that are shipped via UPS or FedEx Ground will typically be left at your door if you are not present at the time of delivery. Leaving the items is a policy/procedure of the local delivery service and not under the control of Atlanta Office Furniture.
Freight Deliveries
Certain items (as noted on the product detail page by Freight Deliverable Only) are too large to be shipped by UPS or Fed-X. These items will be delivered via common carrier truck line. Freight/common carrier deliveries will be setup by phone appointment and delivery window. All freight class deliveries are shipped dock to dock or you have the option to chose delivery and installation via HomeDirect which is calculated based on the total shipping weight of the order. 
Our HomeDirect deliveries and installations include moving the furniture into the room (including up to 2 flights of stairs), assembling the furniture, positioning the furniture and removing the packing.
Freight or common carrier dock to dock shipping to a business require a loading dock and for you or your representatives to move them off the truck. The drivers in this shipping method are not required and in some instances prohibited to assist in unloading.
Please note any special needs or shipping instructions for the delivery in the comments field on your order.

Large quantity orders (usually more than 5 items) are shipped via common carrier and may require a few extra days for delivery.

All items are shipped unassembled or partially assembled unless noted otherwise.

Shipping Damages
  All products ship FOB factory or warehouse. Damaged merchandise will be repaired or replaced at our discretion. 

Please make sure you inspect the shipment for damage. It is your responsibility to inspect the shipment for freight damage before you accept the delivery. The delivery driver must wait while you inspect the shipment. If the driver does not agree to wait while you inspect the delivery, note this on the bill of delivery. If the packages have been damaged in shipment or you suspect it has been damaged in shipment, request that the boxes be opened for inspection or refuse the shipment.
If you see any damage to the boxes write "Packaging Damaged" on the freight bill. Once the product has been unpacked if you see any damage of the product, write "Product Damaged" on the freight bill and contact us by email or phone within 24 hours.

In all cases of damaged or potentially damages shipments, you must contact us within 48 hours in order to support any potential claim for damages.
