Your Delivery. Done Right.
Babette’s exclusive delivery service is second to none! Our delivery team is comprised of highly trained Babette’s employees that take pride in doing their absolute best for each and every customer, which is why we have spent the last 30+ years focusing on the details. From carefully padding your entryway upon arrival to the placement of your new furniture and the cleanup afterward, we guarantee you haven’t experienced a delivery team quite like ours!
When your furniture arrives at our distribution facility, you will receive a call from our delivery coordinator alerting you that your order is ready. Any remaining balance must be paid in full to schedule your delivery day. Items not delivered will retain a 50% deposit. If you aren’t prepared to take delivery just yet or to pay the final balance during this call, no problem. You can make your final payment and schedule delivery over the phone, at any location or via check in the mail. If you need us to hold your merchandise for more than 60-days after we receive it, your order must be paid in full at that time.
Accepted methods for paying your remaining balance:
You have the option to schedule your delivery day, Tuesday through Saturday depending on space availability. We can not promise morning or afternoon, so be sure to choose a day with full availability. To ensure safe loading of product and efficient scheduling, we route and prepare the trucks the day prior to the scheduled delivery. Your furniture is opened and thoroughly inspected before being padded and securely loaded onto our trucks. If for some reason you may not be available for a period of time on your scheduled day, please call as soon as possible to reschedule. If you fail to reschedule with at least 24-hour notice, there will be a rehandling charge of $150 applied to your order. This is due to the time and labor involved with unloading the truck to remove your items and then reloading all else back onto the truck for the scheduled route.
The day before your scheduled delivery, you will receive an automated, text message, and/or email giving you the 2-hour arrival time window that your delivery driver should arrive. Please note the automated calls go out after 12 noon.
