The majority of our furniture is made to order, occasionally we will have a few in-stock items that would be listed for purchase under the "In-Stock" section.  In stock items are packaged and shipped within a few days. Turnaround times for a standard build is 4-6 weeks, custom orders can take up to 10-12 weeks to design and build.


If you are in the Houston area local pick up is available and always free from our workshop in NW Houston. We'll wrap your piece in shrink wrap but be sure to bring blankets and/or cardboard for additional protection on the larger heavier items. Ratchet straps are also recommended.


Small items weighing under 140 lbs will be shipped via a common shipper such as UPS or FedEx. Transit times range from 1-6 business days depending on your location. Tracking numbers will be sent to you as soon as that information becomes available to us.


We occasionally offer free shipping on all orders. This includes standard Fedex/UPS and LTL freight items. Free shipping on LTL/Freight shipments is for “CURB SIDE” delivery to the lower 48 states only. Additional charges may apply if you do not have a loading dock or if you need a lift gate; see “ADDITIONAL FREIGHT INFO” below.


Larger and heavier items require shipment via a freight carrier and will be "CURB SIDE", meaning the item is delivered to your curb and you are responsible for placing the item into your home or building.

For residential deliveries the freight company will contact you to schedule an appointment. Typically you will get a call a day or two ahead and given a three to four hour window. Freight companies only deliver Monday through Friday during regular business hours and someone must be present at the time of delivery.


Please be sure you understand the following information regarding freight as it is very different from what you may have experienced if you've had local furniture deliveries or UPS/FedEx.

Flexibility on how much the driver is willing to assist after unloading depends on the driver and/or company. Or how far they can maneuver their pallet jack. If an item is shipped "curb side" and the driver does take this inside your home or building there may be additional charges.

These freight deliveries will be made with a full size Semi-Truck ranging from 20 to 53 feet in length. It WILL NOT be a box truck like a UPS or FedEx truck.  We cannot request a certain length of truck for final delivery, so please assume it will be a long truck.  The driver is only obligated to deliver curbside at the end of your driveway, it will be your responsibility from there.

PLEASE NOTE: We reserve the right to use any carrier. If you live in an area that is considered “remote” please let us know prior to placing your order. We will let you know your options if any or if there are any additional "Out of Area" or "Remote Area" charges to be expected. If you have a driveway or live on a road that is not accessible for a freight truck then you may need to meet the driver at the next nearest point.

If you refuse delivery because you wanted your shipment in a certain spot where the driver can’t get to or for any reason other than damage, please note you will be charged for all freight costs. It’s best to work with the delivery drivers if you have a tight delivery situation or better yet ask us before we ship your purchase.

*** If there is severe VISIBLE damage to the packaging where damage to interior is believed, you MUST INSPECT and NOTATE DAMAGE on POD (proof-of-delivery) OR a claim CANNOT be filed. If driver will NOT allow you to inspect the damage, please refuse the shipment and contact us right away, the shipment will be sent back. You as the consignee has an obligation to inspect freight prior to driver leaving.***

If you discover damages to your freight after the driver has left and you’ve signed the delivery receipt, please contact us within 24 hrs. Take photos and save all packing material.

Shipments To Alaska, Hawaii, Canada, and US Territories. Please contact us to see if your item can be shipped to your area and any extra costs it may be.


For large/heavy items, we highly suggest adding lift-gate service. A liftgate is a motorized platform attached to the back of the delivery truck that will physically lower your order to the ground so that you can take it inside your business or home. The truck driver will place your order on the ground using the liftgate and you are responsible for bringing it inside.

This lift gate charge covers the entire order, regardless of the number of items.

Smaller items such as night stands or end tables may not need a lift gate however its best to make sure you have someone available to help, if needed. Please note, the typical height of a semitrailer truck bed is four feet off ground level.


Select this service option at checkout for LTL freight shipments and the carrier will contact you to schedule a delivery appointment within a four hour window. The service is recommended for residential customers and strongly recommend it for businesses if your normal hours are not between 8 AM and 5 PM, Monday - Friday.


We can ship worldwide but please contact us for a quote, additionally we require all out-of-country clients supply their own shipping agent to oversee the procurement of exporting/importing our product.


The majority of our furniture is made-to-order unless specifically stated in the description as "in-stock". Turnaround times for a standard build is 4-6 weeks however custom orders can take up to 10-12 weeks to design and build. We can occasionally "rush" an order for an additional fee, please let us know if you need this.


Rush or expedited shipping options are available for select items only. For a special, product-specific quote, please an email to info@modernindustrialfurniture.com. We will determine the feasibility of meeting the required lead-time and will assess the following “rush fee” if the request can be accommodated.

In stock (non-custom) items can be returned within 7 days for a 25% restocking fee, plus the cost of shipping. You are responsible for the cost of shipping the item back. A refund will only be issued if the item is in like new condition, with no wear and tear or damage.

Balance payment is due in full prior to shipment, including packaging fees, freight, and storage fees, if applicable. If final payment is not received within 30 days of order completion, a storage charge may be applied until payment is received and the item is able to be shipped. If you need us to hold your item after its ready to ship please let us know.

Storage fees are $10.00 every business day ($50.00 per week), and will continue to accrue until the date that we ship the order out.
