Unlock the Secrets
When you’re in the market for new furniture, it’s necessary to receive quotes from trustworthy dealers. However, to ensure that you’re getting an accurate quote, vendors will typically ask you several questions to better understand the scope of your project. By preparing answers to these questions ahead of time, you can significantly expedite the process.
Preparation is Key: Knowing the Answers to Important Questions in Advance
1. What Size Space Are You Working With? Can You Describe the Layout?
It’s important to determine the size of the space you are working with and describe its layout. If possible, get accurate measurements of the rooms or areas that require furnishing. Suppose you cannot obtain precise measurements immediately. In that case, you can estimate the space or describe it by the number of people who will be using it.
2. What Are the Key Functional Needs of Your Space?
To ensure that you are provided with appropriate furniture options, it is important to identify the specific needs of your space. You can achieve this by defining the functional areas, such as the customer seating, the main lobby area, or a collaborative work zone.
3. What Is Your Budget Range for Furnishing Your Space?
While you may not know what prices you will pay, you should be able to understand the 3 tiers of furniture pricing.
- Budget Oriented: You are willing to sacrifice features to stay within a budget.
- Balanced: You are looking for a good balance of quality and budget to get the best value.
- Premium: It is crucial that your brand communicates the quality, luxury, and innovative features that customers desire.
Now that you are familiar with the different pricing tiers, you can have a more informed discussion with the dealer regarding the level of service you desire.
4. Are you considering specific furniture pieces?
If you’re in the process of selecting furniture pieces, it’s worth considering options that can enhance productivity and comfort. Cubicles can provide privacy and a quiet workspace, while height-adjustable desks can help prevent back pain and improve posture. Tech-enhanced furniture, such as standing desks with built-in charging ports, can help you stay connected and productive throughout the day.
5. What is your timeline for completing the furnishing of your space?
Determining the timeline for furnishing your space is an important decision. If you need your space furnished fast, you can opt for the quick-ship option, which will take only 2 weeks for delivery.
However, if you have more time to spare, the traditional delivery option can take up to 14 weeks. This might be a better fit when you desire specific features.
