What We Mean by In-stock, Made to Order, and Custom Made
In Stock products are products that are physicallyin our warehouse at the time of order placement. In Stock products can be shipped out within 2-3 business days from our warehouse. Made to Order products are items that are standard design products, but are not physically in stock. Made to Order products are made only when an order is placed and typically have an estimated 10-14 week lead time. Custom Made products are furniture designed to meet a client's specifications. Made to Order and Custom Made office furniture requires a 50% non-refundable deposit.
Made to Order and Custom Made office furniturehave an estimated lead time of 10-14 weeks, depending on the item purchased. The lead time of 10-14 weeks is an estimate and may take longer due to variables that are beyond our control, such as customs clearance and weather conditions that may affect transportation. While we strive to have our products in within the estimated lead time, sometimes this is not possible. In the event of delay beyond the estimated lead time, the order cannot be cancelled without forfeiting the deposit.
Deposits are non-refundable. We require a 50% non-refundable deposit for made to order or custom orders and the balance due prior to shipping. We require a 30% non-refundable deposit to hold for in stock items. Full payment is required prior to shipping.

We ship our orders via standard ground freight service to anywhere in the 48 continental U.S. Typically,freight carriers include, but are not limited to Estes, Saia, R&L Carriers, ABF Freight System and Daylight Transportation.
Delivery is curbside. Curbside Delivery is delivery dropped off at the curb, at the end of your driveway, or near your building. Merchandise cannot be delivered without a signature. Drivers do not bring freight into the building, house, or garage, nor assist with un-packaging or set-up. Customer must make arrangements to bring the furniture inside your office suite.

Our products require assembly. We recommend hiring professional installers to assemble our products. All cabinets, bookcases, and credenzas are shipped in knocked down condition and require installation on site. We recommend professional installation since some custom made, made to order, or contract manufactured furniture may need to be fitted or adjusted during the installation process. There are often no pre-drilled holes for door hinges and drawer slides. Special tools may be required.
All installers (professional or self-installers) are required to review and sign our installation policy.
We offer installation services. Please contact Executive Desk Company for a quote.
We work with several networks of professional furniture installation companies to provide white glove services.
Executive Desk Company is committed to delivering quality products to our customers. We open and inspect every box before they are shipped. The boxes are repackaged and taped thoroughly to safeguard from damage. We are very fortunate to have a very low damage rate due to our packaging and crating methods. Although we take great care to minimize mishap, damages may occur during transit and/or during installation.
It is the customer’s responsibility to inspect packages for box damages, document damages, and report damages to Executive Desk Company immediately.
Upon shipment arrival, inspect the exterior boxes for any noticeable damages. If there are noticeable damages, you must note on the delivery receipt, open the boxes, and document the damages with photos.The photos must be emailed to Executive Desk Company immediately. The photos must clearly show the following:
1) damaged exterior of the box(s)
2) damaged area(s) of the product while the product is still in the box
3) damaged area(s) of the product after it is removed from the box, but prior to installation.
Once installed, we cannot prove that the damaged area(s) is caused by the shipping company. If products arrived damaged, the boxes should be damaged. If we cannot prove that the damage is caused by the shipping company, we will not be able to recover the cost of the damages from the shipping company. Thus we will not be able to provide a refund or a replacement as damages may have occurred during installation.
If a valid email is provided when an order is placed, an order status will be sent to the email provided. Once a product is shipped, an email will be sent to the client with the tracking number, the shipping company name and contact, and clear instructions on what to do once the shipment arrives. Orders are typically shipped within 2-3 business days for In Stock products.
We will accept cancellation of your order with a 30% charge for In Stock products only prior to shipment. Cancellation of Custom Made and Made to Order furniture will be charged 50% of the total price. Products that are delayed beyond our 10-14 weeks lead time guideline cannot be cancelled without a cancellation fee. Once the items are shipped, no cancellation will be accepted. However, the products may be returned to Executive Desk Company. See Return Policy for details. If an order was paid by credit card, the same credit card will be refunded less fees. For orders paid by check, please allow up to two weeks to receive your refund check.
Full refunds (less shipping fees and 30% restocking fee for in stock items and 50% restocking fee for custom order/made to order, and installation costs if applicable) will be issued if merchandise is returned in its original condition within 30 days.

We take great care to pack shipments so that they will arrive safely, so be sure to retain the original packing materials, original receipt and all merchandise tags for any item that you wish to return to us. You may have to provide supplementary packing materials if the outer carton is worn during the original trip out to you.
