Dimensions, weight, durability—factors like these matter when you’re storing and shipping furniture. End-to-end fulfillment solutions are essential, from obtaining the furniture, to managing inventory
, delivering it to the buyer, and processing returns (if you offer returns as an option for customers).
Furniture can be large, heavy, and prone to damage. Small nicks in varnish, or warping if climate control isn’t available in storage, are examples of problems that can reduce the value of a piece of furniture. So be sure to have proper measures in place to avoid stock issues, such as packaging protocols
to reduce the risk of damage during transit.
A spare room or garage might be sufficient to cover your storage needs when you first start out, but as you scale, you might want to coordinate with a solution like Fulfillment by Amazon
for warehousing, customer service, and other tasks.
