This touched off a nerve with me yesterday. Yesterday the fiance and I went to La-Z-boy furniture and picked out a new couch and love seat. We dropped around $2000 for it and we are back getting ringed up when they inform us that it will be $80 per delivery. The couch we bought was in stock but the love seat wasn't. The agent asked if we wanted to wait and consolidate shipments because it would save us money. This irritated me because:
1) Put the price of the delivery into the price of the furniture. Nothing is worse than spending thousands of dollars to have 80 or so takced on for a delivery.
2) Don't tell me that I should wait because delivering two times would be twice as expensive because you don't have one item in stock.
3) Furniture isn't that difficult to handle. If it were electronics or appliances then I would pay for delivery. I want those handled and hooked up because I don't want them broken or hooked up incorrectly. Furniture is more about lifting and turning. Ive moved it quit a few times and it isn't difficult at all.
