Clients are scheduled according to availability, on a first come-first serve basis, usually within 24-48 hours of us receiving notification that the product has arrived on-site, and ready to be assembled.

What if, I did not receive all my items when the assembler arrives?

It is the customer responsibility to call the office and reschedule the entire assembly.  If the assembler has to go back out to install/service the furniture’s, there will be a onetime service charge of $55.00 plus $20/hr to complete the assembly. It's important for the customer to call us in advance to re-schedule, in order to avoid these additional cost.

What if the assembler can not finish the work and have to come back out?

In most cases, this would probably be due how late the assembly has taken. In this case there would be no charge for the customer to have the assembler go out within 2-3 days to finish the services. Usually, the next day is always best.

Another way our clients show their appreciation is by writing positive reviews of our services. A good ole' fashioned hand shake, pat on the back, and words of kindness are readily accepted too! We always appreciate the monetary, written, and verbal, generosity of our clients!

​As a client, what is my role, and how can I help to ensure the service goes smoothly?  

If applicable...we request several things of the client: If you live/work in a "gated community,"  -on the scheduled day of service, please inform the guard ahead of time that Miami Furniture Assembly personnel will be arriving to perform service at your home/business location. When we arrive, someone over the age of 18 must be there to let us in and remain in house/on-site during services. Make sure the room or office has enough working room for our installers. A good rule of thumb is to have 3-4 times the amount of working room space for every 1 item built. Please have/provide adequate lighting in the room(s) the installers are working in. Please adjust the thermostat to a comfortable temperature in the room or office the installers are working in. For safety reasons please keep all other persons/pets/children out of the installation-work area until the project has been completed in full and we have left the premises. If you would you like a 30 minute call prior to our arrival "courtesy call," please let the office know when scheduling service. Please have all products pre-placed in whatever room it/they will remain in once built. We do not move cartons or products from room to room, or up/downstairs without additional fees. All employees must keep their shoes on at all time. Please let us know in when we arrive if you want our assemblers & Installers to wear foot booty"s. 

Will the installer(s) move the flat packed product carton after delivery?

Each service call is tailored to the needs of the individual client and situation. Ordinarily, we ask that prior to our arrival, the flat packed cartons be pre-placed in the room the furniture/product will remain in once built. However, many times due to health reasons or age, our clients are incapable of lifting these cartons into the respective room. In those instances with advance notification, for an additional fee, we will be happy to relocate your flat packed carton(s) elsewhere on the same floor within the home or office. For relocation to different level, a $29.00 fee (5 boxes max) will be included in the final bill. 

As a client, Can I assist the installers with assembly and/or installation tasks?

Unfortunately  NO. Due to strict liability reasons, we cannot allow our clients to physically assist us with any projects. For jobs that require heavy lifting or multiple tasks we use 2 or more installers for the job.

How long does it take to assemble an item?

Assembly times range anywhere from 10 minutes for chairs to several hours for a large executive office with multiple pieces. Note: Products that the retailer or manufacturer suggest be affixed or securely wall mounted take longer and are usually included additional fees.

The client upon notification may elect to have the furniture built with (slight defects only) or may choose to have the item(s) replaced by contacting the original place of purchase or the manufacturer. (We can assist with this step). If, at the time of assembly/installation, the client chooses to replace or exchange the item(s) and instructs our service personnel to discontinue the service, the client will only be charged for the pro-rated amount of work done, and will be instructed to reschedule when the missing pieces or new items arrive. If no work can be performed- an $45/hr will be collected for time lost, travel, etc. Regarding broken or missing parts relative to any furniture's- We will collect a pro-rated amount for the percentage portion of the furniture that has been assembled, even if the furniture cannot be used.
