Have you ordered, or considered ordering furniture this year? If so, you may have heard a little about how international shipping and the supply chain will affect the date of your delivery. Perhaps you were told to expect delays and that any projected delivery dates are merely estimates and not set dates.
Here at Furniture Fair, we’ve had over 55 years of experience delivering furniture to homes throughout the Cincinnati, Dayton, and Louisville markets, and we can safely say that the current lack of in-stock furniture and delayed wait times is unlike anything the furniture industry has ever experienced.
Waiting for a new piece of furniture, or mattress to be delivered after you’ve paid for it can be trying for even the most patient people, and many might be wondering, “What on earth is holding up my furniture delivery?” As it turns out, several things may be holding up your furniture shipments, from the after-effects of the pandemic to a lack of the resources needed to build furniture.
Another factor contributing to long delivery times and frustrated furniture retailers and consumers alike is a lack of available overseas shipping container space. This article will detail what shipping containers are and how they could be holding up your furniture or mattress delivery.
