    Is it safe to buy furniture online?

    Planning to buy furniture? Confused whether it is safe to buy furniture online? Check out this page for responses from experts to your queries.

    I am seeing many online furniture shopping sites, which offer wooden as well as iron furniture. Nowadays, the return polices of online shopping websites make us easy to return a non-functioning or damaged item if it is a small one. But what about large items like furniture, which can't be returned back so easily if we a got a damaged item. How to deal with such a situation? What are the advantages of buying furniture online vs in store? Is it safe to buy furniture online?

  • I had made online purchases for many and varied products since last three four years. My experience tiil now is the problem post order is almost one or two percent. Even in that except for one case, all my issues were properly redressed. The balance one case would also would have also got solve, but I did not proceed with it as the amount involved was just a couple of hundred and I was telling myself okay let it be so. I can absorb that. I simply discontinued dealing with that online shopping portal.

    I suggest that as a beginning start with smaller amount purchase and test case. Purchase furniture online if the price difference is sizable. You can purchase some known brand items as they may have their own arrangements for installation if needed and service. Deal with established shopping portals only. Read their conditions and terms and ensure it is beneficial and convenient.
