Online Furniture Stores Best for Seniors

Not too long ago, the idea of shopping for and buying furniture for your home, while never leaving your home to do so, would have been considered crazy. Today, thanks to the modern internet and software applications, more and more people are selecting furniture and purchasing it from the convenience of their home, including many seniors.

The advantages of doing your furniture shopping online are many. Instead of physically running around from store to store, you just keep clicking on your computer. You are now not limited to only furniture stores in your area, but have access to furniture stores nationwide – in other words, the stores come to you, rather than you go to the stores. The visible selection of the furniture available for sale is much larger online than in physical stores, providing you a much greater choice. Also, since there are many such online stores competing for your business, you have the opportunity to find and take advantage of sales and special offers.

Using modern internet technology, you often will be able to see photos in 3D and even where you can see the pieces from various angles. Some stores have design applications, that will allow you to virtually place the furniture pieces in your home, before you make a buying decision. All of this from the safety and comfort of your home, an ideal shopping solution for seniors.

What Makes A Senior Friendly Online Furniture Store

In addition to having fair and competitive prices, there are certain features that an online furniture store needs to have to be a good place for seniors to shop:

– Perhaps the most important feature is the availability of “white glove” delivery service. This is where the furniture is brought into the desired room of your home, unboxed, set up and the shipping materials taken away. While this always costs extra money, it is an essential service if you are buying many or larger and heavier pieces. Most of these services will even include going up one to two flights of stairs.

– Even though you usually will be able to “see” the pieces online, you never fully know until it’s in front of you – especially since you can’t check the comfort or build quality online. So, a fair and reasonable return policy should allow you to make returns and get a refund.

– There should be accessible and useful customer support available on the store’s website, including with a live person, to answer your questions – before you make a purchase.
