Questions to Ask When Ordering Amish Furniture


Amish furniture is known for superior craftsmanship and durability. Most Amish-built pieces can be expected to last for generations. If you are in the market for Amish furniture, there are several questions you need to ask in order to make sure you are getting the best possible products. This quick guide provides a few starter questions for your shopping experience when buying Amish furniture or a classic storage shed.

Is This a Reliable Vendor?

It is easy for someone to claim that they are selling authentic Amish furniture, but you will want to ask some questions about the vendor’s authenticity if you truly want real Amish craftsmanship. This is especially important if you are planning to order the furniture or classic storage shed online. Do some research to find out if you are dealing with a reliable vendor.

Does the Company Have a Showroom?

If you are shopping for an online vendor, you will definitely want to find out if they have a showroom. If the showroom is nearby, you might want to make the drive to visit. This is really the best way to determine if the furniture being sold is authentic or not. If the showroom is not within driving distance, then you might want to do some online research to find reviews of the location or check with the business bureau in that area to see how the business ranks.

Are There External Reviews Available?

External reviews are an important way to find out if you are dealing with a legit business or not. Be wary of only reading reviews that are posted on the company’s site. Obviously, on-site reviews will only be positive. To really get the full picture, you need off-site reviews or external reviews. You can sometimes find these on Google Reviews or other review sites.

How Long Will Your Order Take?

This is a very important question to ask. Amish furniture that is built to order will usually take about eight weeks to complete, according to furniture experts. The reason for the long wait time is because this type of furniture is entirely built by hand and there is great care and attention taken with each piece.

What Is the Return Policy

You always need to pin down the return policy for any business you are dealing with before you make a purchase. If you are not fully aware of the return policy before purchase, you might get stuck with something you don’t want, with no way to return it.
