We get quite a few questions that start out something like “How in the world do you move that?”
Great question. Now you can see the answer.
All of our pieces are built to easily assemble and disassemble for shipping, moving and storage. This shows one of our most popular pieces, the Sleepers coffee table, both crated for shipping and set up for showing.
Shot some video that shows how our work gets assembled. We gets lots of questions about how we move these pieces and people have concerns about how to install them in their home or office. Truth is, the vast majority of what we build can be easily assembled by two able-bodied people in a matter of minutes as this video shows.
This one is our very popular Sleepers Coffee Table. We ship it out in the pieces just like this along with a video telling how the piece is assembled. We can also have white glove service install it on site at the client’s request.
This particular table is headed for the west coast to a client in San Francisco for their new corporate headquarters.
With a demand for authenticity, we insist that only railroad materials be integrated into a design. Furthermore, all of our products are completely “Made in the USA” and are crafted in large part by the same hands that work the railroad on a daily basis – honest, hard-working blue-collar laborers.
