Our Policies

Stock Availability:

We take stock availability and timely delivery seriously. Here are important details regarding our stock and order terms:

1. Stock Inquiries: Not all items in our online inventory are stored at our warehouse. To ensure you have the most accurate information about stock availability and estimated delivery times, we recommend reaching out to us before making a purchase, especially if you have specific timing requirements.

2. Furniture Orders (Outside of Area): For furniture orders, please anticipate a 3-4+ week delivery period for in-stock items and 1-4+ months for out-of-stock items. We understand the importance of adhering to schedules and are committed to keeping you informed about the status of your order.

3. Stock Variability: Stock availability can occasionally change due to unforeseen or uncontrollable circumstances. Be assured, we make every effort to promptly notify you in the event of any delays.

4. Extended Stock Unavailability: Some items may experience extended periods of unavailability, lasting from 4-6+ months. Factors such as high demand, labor shortages, transit challenges, or other circumstances beyond our control may contribute to this. Your understanding in such cases is greatly appreciated.

  • For cancellations within 7 days, a 5% processing fee will be deducted from the refund which will be issued to the original form of payment.
  • For cancellations after 7 days of purchase a 5% processing fee and 20% restocking fee will be deducted from the refund which will be issued to the original form of payment.

Shipping - Freight

When it comes to shipping furniture and other oversized items, we want to provide you with all the details you need for a smooth delivery experience. Here's what you should know:

1. Freight Carriers: Furniture and oversized items are transported using freight carriers, which may result in extended processing and delivery times.

2. Delivery Scheduling: Once the items reach your local area, a representative will contact you directly to arrange a convenient delivery day and time.

3. Adult Signatures: Many of our items, particularly furniture, require an adult signature upon delivery for security reasons.

4. White Glove Service: We deliver the majority of our furniture and oversized items through White Glove service. This means that you'll have the opportunity to inspect the product at the time of delivery and report any issues immediately. When you sign off on the item, it indicates that you have received it in good condition.

5. Delivery Timeframe: After an item ships from our warehouse, you can typically expect delivery within 3-4 weeks, depending on the couriers schedule. Please be aware that if you've ordered multiple items, they may arrive in separate boxes and on different delivery dates.

6. Potential Delays: It's important to note that in some areas, delivery times may be longer due to geographic factors, weather conditions, or unforeseen delays beyond our control.

Our aim is to ensure your satisfaction and make the delivery process as convenient as possible. If you have any questions or concerns about your shipment, please don't hesitate to contact us. We appreciate your business and look forward to delivering your items to you in a timely and efficient manner.

In-Store Inventory

Our in-store inventory includes items that are flagged as "pick-up or local delivery" on the product page. These products can be found at our Middleton, WI storefront, or in transit to our location, or stored at our warehouse.

While most of these items are marked as available in-store, it's essential to be aware that our stock can change as we sell items directly from the floor. Some of these products are unique, one-of-a-kind pieces and may not be eligible for shipping due to being unboxed, fragile, or requiring special handling.

Additionally, you may come across variants on our website pages that can be ordered. Please note that selecting these variants for pick-up may involve longer timelines.

If you have questions about the availability of specific items, wish to inquire about stock, or need assistance with arranging a pick-up or delivery, please don't hesitate to contact us at hello@brownandbeam.com. We are committed to providing timely support and will respond to your inquiries within 24-48 hours during our business hours, which are from 9am to 5pm CST, Mondays through Saturdays. Your satisfaction is our priority, and we look forward to assisting you with your needs.

This includes precise measurements of doorways, stairways, ceiling heights, and entry paths, especially for larger furniture items. Failure to do so may result in merchandise that cannot pass through entry spaces, rendering it undeliverable and subject to the fees outlined above.
