Frequently Asked Questions


Ordering - Shipping and Tracking - Returns and Refunds

Ordering:

Why have I not received an order confirmation email?

An order confirmation email is automatically sent when your order is placed. Please check your spam folder and wait a few minutes for the email to reach your inbox. If you believe you entered the wrong email address in the checkout process or have lost your order confirmation please contact support@grainwoodfurniture.com

Do you accept special or custom orders (unlisted sizes/colors, unfinished products)?

No, we do not accept special orders of any kind. All available products are listed on our website.

Can I only order on-line?

Yes, we do not accept telephone orders and do not sell at a physical location.

Can I pre-order items?

No, we do not have a system for pre-orders.

Do you offer any discounts or coupons?

We operate at a low margin to keep costs to consumers as low as possible and therefore rarely offer discounts or coupons. If any discounts are available they would be clearly displayed on our website and the product's page.

Can you hold my order? Can I schedule my delivery date?

We cannot hold orders. We recommend you make and account on our website and put items in your cart then order them the day before you would like them shipped. Take into consideration we do not ship Saturday or Sunday. Click here to see the FedEx map of shipping time. Virginia is 1 day with a 1 day increase for every adjacent color.

The item I want is sold out, when will it be available?

We have been unable to keep up with the demand on some of our products, but are restocking constantly. Enter your email on the product's page, follow us on social media, and sign up for our mailing list in order to receive updates. By the way, our website will always be first sales channel to restock products.

Do you ship wood samples?

No. The best way to get an accurate sense of the finish of a product is by looking at all the available images including customer submitted photos and images of other products in the collection with the same finish.

Are finish colors accurate?

We aim to accurately reflect the finish colors on all of our items – but, there are some factors that may create variation:
- Differences in monitor type/settings, video cards and printers – colors may vary from what you see on your screen and the actual color on the product.
- The perceived color of a product depends on the type of light that is present in the room (ex: fluorescent lights tend to make the color more blue and incandescent light make it more yellow/red).
- Finish colors also depend on the wood. Variations in density, tone, grain, and knots create the beautiful randomness of a truly natural piece.

Why do you need my phone number when I place and order?

Your phone number is passed on to FedEx to enable them to contact you if there are any delivery issues. We do not pass on or sell your phone number to anyone. We will only call you if we have a question relating to your order.

What is the cancellation policy?

You can request to cancel any order before it is prepared for shipping free of charge by emailing our support team. Please be advised that we do ship very quickly from our large warehouse inventory. If you missed the window to cancel the order, you can always set up a return or exchange ahead of time, and then send the item back once it arrives. Please note, a 20% fee will apply for returns.

Do your products come with a warranty?

Yes, there is a 90 days limited warranty for manufacturing and wood defects. During the warranty period, replacement parts will be provided at no cost.

How do I place an order as a tax exempt customer?

Email support@grainwoodfurniture.com with your tax exempt certificate attached. We will then let you know when we have marked you as a tax exempt customer in our system and instruct you to place your order. You must submit the proof of tax exempt status before placing your order as we will not be able to refund the tax from your order after it has been placed.

What is the California Proposition 65 warning?

The State of California requires any product that may contain chemicals known to the State of California to cause cancer, birth defects or other reproductive harm to contain a warning. In our specific case, our products are 100% made of solid pine wood, and the wood itself does NOT contain any substances from this list, but in our current paint, there are 3 components present in the liquid stage that once applied to the wood will evaporate to a level that is not harmful to the consumer. We take health safety in our products very seriously, not only for our customers, but also for ourselves as we spend extensive time around these products in our work.
