Policies for Delivery, Shipping, and Returns
The Artful Lodger has built its business over the last two decades by offering quality and unique home furnishings to the central Virginia and surrounding areas. One of the most important and final aspects of your purchase is the delivery of your furniture, and for this reason we recommend our Local WhiteGloveDelivery service whenever possible. As furniture tends to be heavy and bulky, it is easily damaged during transit, shipping, and on delivery into your home. To alleviate any issues in this critical step we utilize our own employees and delivery truck, assuring a timely and error free delivery almost every time. We will haul away the furniture you are replacing, and orient your new and existing furniture exactly where you want it in your home. Deliveries take place Monday-Friday 9:00 am to 4:30 pm and we are usually able to arrive within 30 minutes of our appointment time.

What if my order arrives damaged?
If delivery is on our own truck please notify our drivers and have them contact us before you sign for the delivery. If drivers have left please take photos and email as well as contacting us.
If delivery is from an outside carrier it is very important that you inspect furniture closely before signing for delivery or letting the driver leave. Contact us immediately if damage is found. Take photos of damaged items and damaged packaging and note any damage on paperwork before signing. Obtain a copy or photo of the paperwork with your damage comments. Keep all original packaging until the issue is resolved. We will work with you and the shipping company to resolve the issue as quickly as possible. This may involve a repair, replacing the part of furniture damaged, or a replacement item.
