Shipping

  • Shipping Policy

    Rates
    For orders totaling $999.99 and under (prior to any discounts/ promos), our standard shipping rate is 12% of your order total. For orders $1,000 and above (prior to any discounts), orders ship free. For example, if your order is $100, your shipping cost will be $12 (subject to tax where applicable). 

    Uhuru hoodies + tote bags ship free via small parcel.

    Standard shipping rates are eligible for uhurudesign.com orders (not contract or trade orders). If you would like to inquire about shipping to AK, HI, international destinations, or trade sales logistics, please contact us at hello@uhurudesign.com. 

    Shipping terms vary for trade and contract orders. At this time, we cannot ship to APO/FPO/DPO/PO boxes.

    Standard Shipping  
    Standard shipments will deliver via small parcel carrier (FedEx), or curbside via our freight partner, depending on size. For example, a pedestal may ship small parcel, but a credenza will be delivered curbside via our freight partner.

    Items may ship separately and with different delivery methods. We will contact you with any questions we may have if your order has split shipments.

    Curbside Delivery
    For curbside delivery, you must be present to meet your driver. If you need help with delivery inside your home and packaging removal, we encourage you to inquire about white glove delivery options by reaching out at hello@uhurudesign.com.

    Products that ship as freight will be delivered with our contracted partner. Our team will deliver your order to curbside, which does not include unpacking your order or bringing it inside. You may be left with the shipping pallet or crate depending on your item(s).

    Our freight partner will contact you to schedule a delivery time, from M-F between the hours of 9am to 5pm. You must be present to meet the driver and collect your order during your scheduled delivery appointment. If redelivery of your order is required due to a missed delivery appointment with our carrier, an additional fee of $150 or more will apply. You are responsible for evaluating the packaging and noting damages upon receipt.

    White Glove

    In response to COVID-19, Inside Delivery + Assembly service has been suspended in most areas. The availability of this option will depend on your shipping zip code and may be available in select markets.

    White Glove delivery is available with additional fees. Please reach out at hello@uhurudesign.com.

    An authorized individual must be home during your scheduled delivery window to accept and inspect your items and sign the delivery receipt.

    Our white glove professionals are not permitted to move furniture currently in your home, not allowed to move or set up electrical equipment, and not allowed to assemble any pieces that have to be installed in or on existing structures. For example, they will not install a wall-mounted unit (such as a mirror) or ceiling light fixture. We recommend you hire a professional to install our wall-mounted designs. To facilitate delivery, please clear the space where furniture or items will be placed prior to delivery.

    Since white glove delivery includes packaging removal, if you’re not 100% sure about your purchase, we recommend that you retain all original packaging. That will make it possible for you to return it to us.

    Ships in + Lead Time
    We aim to design and manufacture our products with the best care. On each product page, the ‘ships in’ time frame outlines how long your product will take to reach our warehouse. From the warehouse, shipping and delivery time is usually 10-14 days. These lead times vary per finish/sku. You will receive an email when your order is ready to ship or ready to be delivered.

    Please note that if you placed an order for products currently not in inventory or not in the Quick Ship Collection, the shipping time may vary. The "ships in time" is displayed on the product page, above the "Add to Cart" button. If you place an order with items of mixed lead times (some in stock, some on longer lead times), the Quick Ship items will still ship separately, within the displayed time frame.

  • Trade + contract shipping

    Trade and Contract customers have varying policies. Your discounts will be outlined by your account manager at the time of your pro account creation. Generally, shipping costs are quoted and charged separately, after your order has been placed. Alternatively, trade + contract customers have the option to arrange their own logistics or pick up from our warehouse. Please contact info@uhurudesign.com for more details.

  • Preparing for shipment

    Measuring
    To help your delivery go as smooth as possible, please measure your space ahead of time to make sure your purchase will fit in not only your space but also all the areas it will pass through during delivery (for example, all entry-ways, doorways, corridors). If you have any questions about item dimensions, please let us know.

    Remote Deliveries
    We try our best to get all orders delivered in a timely manner, but if you live in a remote area, there may be delays. Let us know in advance if you live in a challenging delivery location and we will work with you to come up with a solution.

    Scheduling your delivery
    If you cannot accept delivery for an extended period of time after your order has shipped, you will be charged additional fees to store your order. Please let us know if you are unable to accept delivery during the expected delivery time frame.

    Redelivery
    If redelivery of your order is required due to a missed delivery appointment with our carrier, an additional fee of $150 or more will apply. 

    What to expect on delivery day
    For curbside freight or white glove, an authorized individual must be present during your scheduled delivery window to accept and inspect your items and sign the delivery receipt. Curbside delivery requires you to meet your driver and collect your items at your curbside.

  • Assembly

    Many of our products ship fully assembled or require light assembly. For fully assembled products, there is minimal set-up needed, such as sliding on rubber feet. For items requiring light assembly, all hardware is included. Tools are not included.

  • Order inspection upon delivery, damages, missing parts

    Order Inspection
    Please inspect your purchase immediately upon receipt. While we do our best to design and package products for safe delivery, sometimes damages occur. Please save all of your paperwork and packaging materials and contact us immediately at hello@uhurudesign.com so we can evaluate the damage and arrange for a replacement.

    White Glove packaging removal
    Please note that white glove delivery includes packaging removal, so if you opted for this delivery option, elect to save the packaging or inspect the product before our white glove partners remove packaging.

    Damaged Products
    If an item arrives damaged, please notify us within 3 days of receipt by filing a claim, and we will make arrangements for a replacement or a refund as necessary. We require photos of the reported issue to properly access and resolve the situation.

    Missing Parts
    If you are missing parts we will make it right and replace them. Please contact us at hello@uhurudesign.com to receive the necessary parts.
