Do you dream of furnishing your home or office with specialized and unique items, but the retailers and manufacturers you like are many miles away or even off Vancouver Island?
Perhaps you get over to the mainland on occasion, but you don’t have a vehicle capable of carrying a large load. Or you hesitate given the cost of ferry travel and fuel, not to mention the time it takes?
The number of Island residents in those situations is growing, says Kim Cordray, who since 2013 has operated Add2cart, a shopping, delivery and assembly service with pickup sites in Langford and Nanaimo.
Your time is valuable, she says, and being able to shop from home and receive your items quickly makes sense for many people.
You’re kept in the loop
Ordering is just the first step, but keeping track of where your items are in the shipping process is something Add2cart specializes in, Kim notes.
“We offer a very personalized, white-glove service. We keep in touch with people during the entire process, and we go over every week so often the items are here more quickly,” she says.
If you’ve chosen the pickup option, there are flexible times for you to collect your goods either during the opening hours or by appointment. “Plus we have people there to help you load your vehicle.”
After-sales details looked after for you
Add2cart has developed a wealth of knowledge about the products, warranties and customer service policies of the merchants they work with, from IKEA and Crate and Barrel, to EQ3 and more. “Knowing those kinds of things helps us make it easier for everyone to get their items as quickly and painlessly as possible,” Kim says.
If you need to exchange a damaged or defective item, Add2cart will facilitate that, as well as do complimentary returns on items you’ve ordered through Add2cart.
Here’s some other reasons to check out Add2Cart:
- Don’t consider yourself handy? Don’t worry, Add2cart offers an assembly service, – especially important for those more complicated IKEA items – so you can spend your time doing other things after your item arrives
- IKEA fans alert! If you like the styles and selection of this popular Swedish manufacturer, but find it hard to plan trips to the mainland, you can monitor exactly when Add2cart’s truck is going to IKEA by checking the top of their home page.
- Stay tuned for design options Kim and company will soon be partnering with a local designer who can help you plan your space, from kitchens to closets and colours to furniture choices.
