Frequently Asked Questions
Do you charge sales tax?
We do not charge sales tax in any state except New York & New Jersey.
Do you price match with other retail websites?
Unfortunately, we do not price match with other retail websites. Various online retailers purchase World Mod Inc items and sell them directly, much in the same way they’d purchase a particular brand of shoe factory direct and resell them to customers. This allows retailers to apply their own pricing rules to our products, such as applying different shipping methods, whereas we never charge for shipping.
Can these items be used outdoors?
Most of our items are suggested for indoor use unless specifically mentioned in the item’s description or "Details" tab. If you’re going to use any item such as chairs outdoors, it’s suggested that you not leave them uncovered in the elements, and bring them inside or cover them to extend their lifespan.
Will you send someone to help with assembly/installation?
Instructions are included with each item we make available. If you need further help with furniture assembly, there are a number of product pages which have video guides on how to assemble your item. For lighting installation, we always suggest utilizing an electrician’s expertise to mount your fixture. For either furniture assembly or mounting installation, we also suggest using a service like taskrabbit.com to get some extra help!
I have a question that is not answered here, can you help?
Our awesome customer service staff will be glad to help you with any other questions! Just drop us a line via the chat widget on the site, send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org, or give us a call at +1 718-302-3490.
Are your products commercial grade?
Products that are tested to official commercial grade, will be noted as such in the "Features" tab on the product page. However, all our products are stress-tested to commercial standards. Those stress tests are how we came up with the weight capacity you see on every product page under the "Details" tab.
Can I purchase extra/spare parts?
Most of our items come as closed kits, and at present, we're not able to make the kit components available for individual sale. However, always reach out should you need something and we will check to see if we have what you need.
Do you have a showroom or brick & mortar location?
Currently, we don't have any showrooms. This allows us to offer the great pricing you see since we do not have any showrooms or sales people.
Where are your products manufactured?
Our products are manufactured in India, Malaysia, China and Taiwan.
Do you use BPL, flame retardants, or formaldehyde in your furniture?
We do not use these substances in any of our furniture.
Are the finish colors shown in your photos accurate?
Our product photography was taken in-house with professional lighting to ensure that the colors are accurate. However, do be advised that your screen settings (such as brightness, contrast, and resolution) may affect how you see the colors and textures on your device.
Are swatches/samples available?
Swatches are available for most Fabric products.
Wood chip samples are available for the leg bases of the Vortex Side and Armchairs. Vegan leather samples are also available for all office chairs. Please reach out to us and let us know what items you are interested in and we would be happy to send you the swatches that are available.
What kind of warranty is provided on your products?
All our products come with a 1-year manufacturer’s warranty, valid from the day of delivery.
How will my order ship?
Our products are delivered in two ways, either:
- Products marked "Parcel Delivery" in the "Details" tab on the product page, ship via UPS or FedEx and once shipped you can expect delivery to take about 3-5 business days or less to deliver.
Truck Delivery (e.g. large tables, large order quantities, etc.):
- Products marked "Truck Delivery" in the "Details" tab on the product page, ship using a freight truck and will be delivered curbside only. (this does not include inside delivery, upstairs or room of choice). Please contact us if you need help with room of choice, unpackaging, debris removal or upstairs delivery. Once shipped, the delivery may take up to 2 weeks depending on your delivery address. Our delivery partners will contact you prior to your estimated delivery date to schedule an exact date of delivery.
Where do you ship from?
All our orders will ship from our New Jersey Warehouse Facility
How long does it take to ship my order?
Most orders take 1-2 business days to process and ship out of our fulfilment centres unless a specific estimated shipping date is displayed.
How much do you charge for shipping?
Regardless of the shipping method, shipping is ALWAYS free!
Can I choose an upgraded/faster delivery service?
We may use any shipping you provide us with if you need something faster than Ground shipping. Just send us a message so we can tell you all the shipping dimensions and weights for your order, and once you’ve got your shipping arrangements in place we can apply them to your order. We'll specifically need you to send us digital copies of the shipping labels to apply for expedited shipping.
Can I upgrade to in-home delivery/assembly?
Freight services that deliver to your home often have white-glove services available as an upgrade. In this case, instead of delivering curbside, they will bring the items into your home and unpack them for you. You may request this service after your purchase by contacting us with any of the Contact Us methods.
Can I track my shipment?
Yes, an email with a link for tracking your order will be sent once we’ve packed and shipped your order.
Will I get a call when the furniture is going to be delivered?
With Parcel Delivery shipments, you’ll be notified with tracking that will indicate when your shipment is due to arrive. If you would like notification, you can log into the UPS or FedEx site to request notifications to be sent via email when your shipment is near. All Truck Delivery services will call you ahead of time to square away a good delivery time.
Can I place my order on hold/can you deliver after a certain date?
As long as your order hasn’t already shipped, we can put a hold on your order until you’re ready for us to send it! Just leave us a message in the order notes section that you need us to hold it and we’ll honour the request.
Do you ship internationally (i.e. outside the US)?
At present, we only ship to the contiguous 48 United States. If you need to ship out of the country we’re happy to work with any freight forwarding service you like! UPS and FedEx make such services available, and Serra International is a trusted service that specializes in international freight forwarding.
Can you ship to a PO/APO/FPO Box?
We do not currently ship to PO Boxes or the like and require a street address in order to ship.
Can I change my shipping address after I place the order?
As long as your order hasn’t shipped, we can make any changes to the order that you need! If your order has already shipped, it will be necessary to contact UPS about changing the address.
What happens if I miss my delivery appointment?
Parcel Delivery services like UPS and FedEx will make up to three attempts to deliver your packages, so don’t worry if you miss the first attempt! All Truck Delivery services call ahead to arrange delivery and will hold your shipment locally for a few days while they call again to arrange another drop-off.
I ordered multiple items but they did not arrive together, what’s going on?
In a multi-pack shipment, part of your order may get separated from the rest of the order. This usually happens because one truck was filled before the entirety of your order was loaded onto it. If you ever notice that your whole order hasn’t shown up, be sure to check your tracking link; on the tracking page, you’ll see a link reading “Packages in shipment”, which will show you the individual tracking numbers of each piece of your shipment.
My estimated delivery window has passed and my order hasn’t yet arrived - what should I do?
First, check the tracking link we sent you -- the source of the delay may be on UPS’s or the freight carrier’s end, and you can contact them about what may be happening with your shipment. Of course, you’re also always welcome to give us a call so we can give you an update on your order!
Do you charge a restocking fee?
Please note that World Mod Inc eliminated the restocking fee on all orders.
How Do I Return an Item?
Repack the item in the original boxes and email email@example.com for return instructions.
Can I return a custom order?
Please note all Custom Orders are not eligible for return or cancellation once items have gone into production.
How can I cancel my order?
Please email firstname.lastname@example.org to send a cancellation request. All cancellations must be confirmed in writing by World Mod Inc.
What happens when I receive an item damaged?
Although it is unfortunate, items are occasionally damaged in transit or have concealed damage. If your order arrives damaged, please email email@example.com with pictures showing the damages. We will ship the replacements on a priority basis.
