All items that are in stock ship within 1-2 business days and will arrive within 5 to 7 business days from the ship date. In the event of a delay, we will notify you by email. Items sent directly from our suppliers may take longer, and items ordered together may not arrive in the same box. Due to the custom nature of many of our items delivery lead times will vary, It is important to note these are estimated shipping times and are subject to availability of products and/or manufacturers availability. If a product you have ordered is out of stock or on backorder, we will contact you with a shipment date and you can decide to either keep the order as is, cancel the item or cancel the entire order. Occasionally issues arise that may lead to additional production time, such as our manufacturers experiencing a backup in production. If this is the case, you will be alerted as soon as we are made aware that a problem exists. If you need to verify stock, information and availability prior to placing your order, please contact customer service through "Contact Us".
Please refer to the chart below to calculate shipping costs. Some items require an additional shipping charge due to excess weight or special packaging requirements. If there is an additional shipping charge for an item, it will be noted on the product page as a "delivery surcharge". Please add this amount to the standard shipping cost listed below. Other products may have a set or "fixed" price to ship that one item, and that ship price will be noted on the product page.

If you are sending items to more than one address, please place separate orders for each address.
Order Status and Tracking
When your order is processed by one of our fulfillment specialists, a tracking number will be assigned to your package and you will receive an email notification that your package has been sent. The email will include the tracking number for reference. Please note that if you ordered several items, they may not all ship from the same location or ship at the same time. If this is the case, tracking numbers will be assigned to each individual shipment and you will receive notice and tracking numbers as each package is sent.
Freight Shipping for Oversize Items
Furniture and large items often ship via carrier. Most carriers schedule deliveries Monday through Friday between the hours of 9:00am and 5:00pm. Freight companies will contact you a few days prior to the delivery to schedule a delivery date and time frame (typically 2-4 hour blocks) that works for you.
If your scheduled appointment is missed, you will be charged a delivery trip fee. Please do not arrange for the item(s) to be delivered when no one is home to receive them. Although our suppliers take great care in packaging their goods for shipping, damages may occur in transit. Furniture items must be carefully inspected BEFORE you sign for the delivery. If the furniture happens to arrive with any defects DO NOT sign for the items. Contact us immediately while the trucking company is there so that we may discuss the best way to handle the situation. If you are not able to get in contact with us, please either refuse the delivery or note the damages and status of the packaging materials on the bill of lading before signing for the delivery. The Ritz Connection will be unable to assist you in the replacement of damaged goods or reimbursement if the above procedures are not followed.
If you need to reschedule the delivery with our carrier, please contact them as soon as possible so as not to incur any charges for missed delivery appointments. For standard freight delivery our shippers deliver furniture to your driveway. Premium in-home delivery is available if you would like items placed inside the threshold of your home or in a particular room with all packing materials discarded. Freight items can be ONLY shipped within the 48 contiguous states.
Freight Shipping Notes and Delivery Times
It is important to note that when we quote you a shipping time that it is an estimate and cannot be guaranteed by The Ritz Connection. Occasionally, issues arise that are beyond our control that may lead to additional production time, such as our manufacturers experiencing a backup in production. If this is the case, you will be alerted as soon as we are made aware that any problem exists.
It is also important to note that once a piece leaves our manufacturer's facility the remaining shipping time is beyond our control. The Ritz Connection functions as a liaison to ensure merchandise is transported safely to you, and although this process most often proceeds smoothly, delays and damages may be caused by the freight company. The Ritz Connection will do our absolute best to assist in getting your items to you in a timely manner and in good condition and will notify you immediately if we are made aware of any expected delays or problems. It is essential that you inspect all freight shipped items very carefully and DO NOT sign for your piece if you suspect any damage.
Premium In-home Delivery for Freight Items
In-home delivery is available for many of our large furniture items for $100.00. Upon delivery, our shippers will unpack, place these furnishings in the room of your choice (transport for up to two flights of stairs is included with Premium freight delivery) and discard the packing materials for you. Assembly service is not included and if Premium delivery is available for an item, it will be presented as an option on an item's product page. The $100.00 charge is in addition to the standard freight shipping price and applicable delivery surcharges.
Saving on Freight Shipping Costs
Ordering several pieces of furniture at the same time? Please contact us directly by phone to place your order. If the items you are ordering are shipping from the same manufacturer, we may be able to save you on shipping and freight charges!
When Damages Occur During Freight Delivery
While we do our utmost to ensure your items arrive in a timely manner and in perfect condition, there are some things that are beyond our control. We would like to claim that damages do not occur during transit, but unfortunately that is not always the case. Our freight handlers handle your pieces with great care but it is important to understand that from time to time damages do occur. If your piece arrives damaged, the freight company reserves the right to have the piece repaired and brought back to the manufacturer's standard at their expense. They do this by sending the piece to a furniture medic or back to the manufacturer for a repair/rebuild. If the freight carrier determines the piece cannot be repaired, you have the right to be reimbursed for your purchase or have another piece rushed at no additional charge and shipped out to you as soon as possible.
