ESTIMATED SHIPPING TIME FRAMES
We have set up a timetable for shipping. We will be using business days as a time frame. A business day is any day not a weekend or holiday. For example, if you order a product Friday night at 6pm after business hours and the product ships in two business days, your shipping date at latest will be the following Tuesday. Most home theater seating is shipped by freight carrier with lift gate. Home theater accessories are shipped separately by ground. In addition, we offer white glove delivery as an option, be aware this can add about 5 to 7 business days to ship time.
In rare occurrences, some products will be back ordered or special ordered. We will notify if there is a back order on the product by e-mail. For most orders we provide a tracking number which can be used to track the progress of your shipment by clicking on the link in the order status e-mail. We verify all estimated shipping time frames with confirming e-mails to you. We do not compensate or offer credits for any delayed shipments as your purchase is for the value of the item(s) only not for time period in which they ship.

Curbside Shipping or White Glove Delivery
White Glove Delivery
HT Design is exclusively contracted with a National Home Delivery company that takes great care of shipping via common carrier and delivery of over-sized furniture like our home theater seating.
Items are delivered in your home with unpacking, debris removal, and room placement of furniture. All of our home theater seats are packaged in a carton 48" x 48" x 48" and each lounger weighs approximately 100lbs per carton.
Home Delivery Advantages:
- Cost is similar depending on location.
- Items handled via our common carrier home delivery service are picked up at the manufacturer (please note this service not available direct from manufacturer.) An email is sent to you upon pick up and you can track the shipment.
- Products are transported from their location to your location. Once they arrive in your area, you are telephoned by a representative from our home delivery service to arrange a 4 hour window for delivery.
- A window of time is agreed upon and the driver and helper will deliver your items into your home including one flight of stairs, remove debris from your location, and placing the furniture where you desire.
- Typically takes 5 to 7 business days to deliver to most locations after pick up from the manufacturer.
