General Questions

Do you have a showroom or store?

Yes we do! We have a showroom specifically for ECE educators and school owners! We like to call it our "classroom" because it's designed to be a replica of a real junior kindergarten classroom, furnished with most of our products in an open layout. Customers are encouraged to get a feel for our products, move them and place our products in a way to help them imagine how our furniture will work in their home or classroom. Call us toll-free today at 1-855-ULFERTS (853-3787) to let us know when you'd like to come in!

My school opens on _____. When should I order?

From our experience with new school builds and renovations, we understand that there can be many unforeseen delays with construction crews and general contractors. Therefore, we highly recommend to select and place your order with us at least 2 months before your first expected open house date. This gives us enough time to manufacture and ship your order to our warehouse, where we can further assemble products where needed.

To prevent any damages or spilled paint from construction, we also suggest that your order can be delivered once your flooring is installed, 2nd coat of paint is complete, and ceiling panels are in place.

Can I rent your furniture?Back top

Unfortunately, due to the wear-and-tear our products may be subjected to at schools, we do not rent-out our furniture, or have any rent-to-own programs. However, occassionally we do provide loaner items for paying clients who have placed a deposit with us, and need to go through licensing or permit approvals while their order is being manufactured and shipped.
