Delivery + Installation

Does Berkowitz Furniture deliver to my area?

Yes, our trucks will deliver right across metro Melbourne and Geelong. If your home is further away, we can arrange an external carrier depending on your location.

Will Berkowitz furniture notify me prior to my delivery?

Of course! We will inform you once the furniture is received into our warehouse and we will then endeavour to find a suitable day for delivery to your home.

Can I pick up my order?

Orders can be picked up from the Berkowitz Head Office / Warehouse at 79 Rushdale street Knoxfield. In some instances, pickups can also be arranged at the store in which the goods were purchased.

How long will I have to wait for my furniture?

At Berkowitz Furniture, we do our best to keep as much stock on hand as possible. However, manufacturing times and delivery dates vary depending on the furniture supplier. Please contact one of our friendly sales consultants for more information about estimated delivery timelines.

Please note the delivery date listed on your invoice is only an estimate. We cannot guarantee furniture will be delivered in a specific week.

How much is delivery?

Our standard delivery rate for metro deliveries is $90. However, costs can vary depending on the number of items and the home location. We recommend you contact your closest Berkowitz Furniture showroom if you would like to find out the exact cost.

Will the delivery professionals assemble my furniture?

At Berkowitz Furniture, we aim to offer a superior delivery service that will involve a full assembly of the product placed in the desired position of your home. We also remove any packaging that comes with the furniture. However, this service is only available with metro deliveries.

What happens if I am not home when the furniture is delivered?

In this unfortunate instance, we will have to arrange another delivery date. You will incur a second delivery charge as our carriers are paid for each delivery.

Do Berkowitz Furniture make custom orders and/or can they change the configuration of the furniture?

As a family business that has been around for well over 100 years, we understand that you may want your own custom variations to fit personal needs, room dimensions etc. As such, on a wide range of products, we let you get the exact configuration you want. Many of our stocked items also offer a variety of configurations to choose from “off the floor”.

What fabric and leathers do Berkowitz Furniture offer?

At Berkowitz Furniture, we have a vast range of specialised fabrics to choose from, including fabrics from Warwick and Zepel Fabrics. Our leather collection is also extensive with an excellent array of colour options.

Are the products inspected before dispatch?

All products that enter the warehouse are carefully assessed and then repackaged before the product is delivered.

How do I care for fabric furniture?

Berkowitz Furniture recommends applying a fabric protection product to help remove any future liquid and food stains. This is done prior to your furniture being delivered to you. Three other key tips are to;

  1. Keep the lounge out of sunlight

  3. Remove stains immediately.
