Futon Inventory Information

All of our Futon Mattresses are Made In America so they are always in stock. All of our Futon Frames are currently in stock but they are manufactured in Indonesia and Malaysia. When I see those cargo ships off the coast of California that can't get in to port to unload, I can see why I can't get the Futon Frames that I've had on order for over six months. This situation is not going to change this year. My advice is, If know you are going to buy any products that are shipped in over the water, buy them now while they are available and especially if you're buying for Christmas. Plus, the longer you wait to purchase the higher the prices may be. We have been hit with three Ocean Freight Surcharges this year. The surcharge is a handliing fee based on a percentage of the cost of the products. The first surcharge this year was 3% and then it went to 6% and on October 1st it went to 14% and may go even higher. Then we have to pay the increased trucking freight costs plus a fuel surcharge to get the merchandise (hopefully) to the store and pay a price increase on the frames from the manufacturer. All retailers and online sellers are forced to pass some of these costs on to their customers. By the way, we constantly get negative reports from customers buying from online sellers so I suggest you buy from a dealer that has the products you want currently in stock. That way you can see them before you make a purchase and pick them up and take them with you. If you order from an online seller, you usually will not know exactly when, or even if, your order will really ship. Your futon mattress, futon frame and futon cover may be shipped by a third party shipper from different shipping points around the country meaning they will not all deliver to you at the same time and freight damage is likely.
