Does Your Murphy Beds Come Assembled?
Most of our Murphy beds will arrive to you partially disassembled for shipping. We set every order up in our back showroom to take you some proof pictures. After your approval, we'll slightly break it down for shipping. One thing we do that no other Murphy bed company does (besides the proof pictures) is to leave the center section together. This saves a HUGE amount of time assembling the frame and attaching the face to the frame (about 100 screws).
When you receive it you'll need to reassemble the cabinet (2 verticals, header, headboard, and bottom support pieces) and then add the face. Not real difficult especially since we've assembled it once and the
holes are already located.
Other things we do to make assembly easier:
-No need to measure the position of the headboard, we put dowels in to set that position.
-We leave the mechanism attached to the verticals when we ship and the correct number of springs are already on there.
Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
Some questions cusomters have had about our products and you may have as well.
How big will the delivered items be? Will they fit into the service elevator of my building?
The biggest part is normally the Center section. It is slightly bigger than the mattress. The queen is about 66"w x 84"l x 6"d and it weights about 140 lbs.
That center section can be sent broken down if needed and you should have no problem with it.
Do I need a handyman to install a Muprhy Bed?
Most of our customers will install it themselves. Occasionally someone would like help assembling the bed for them. We suggest contacting a handyman service like Angie's list or a local Moving and storage company
How is it shipped to us?
We ship on a custom skid that is bigger and wider than the biggest piece. We ship how most everything comes by freight line, what is called "Curbside Delivery". The shipping company is only required to get it to the curb. You are responsible to get it inside. We do require that the shipping company contact you and schedule a window of time to be there. This way you can arrange help carrying the boxes. Even though we break it down, the individual boxes are still heavy and will require two people.
