FAQ

GENERAL

Why are these better?
Thanks for asking. For starters, wood risers are more aesthetically pleasing, eco-friendly and heavy duty than the imported hollow plastic ones. These can hold 600 pounds each, so 4 risers can hold 2,400 pounds of weight. Of course, I could go on and on about why these are so awesome, but you get the idea.

Do you make custom sizes?
I am sorry, but I only offer the square ones in the Store.  Hopefully those will meet your needs. 

How many risers does my bed, chair or sofa need?
Count the legs. Many sofas, king and queen sized beds have five, six or seven legs, so be sure to check before ordering. Be sure to look for center legs under the bed, sofa or dresser. This is important.

What riser lift height do I need for my chair or sofa?
Refer to the image below and follow these 3 steps:

Step 1. Stand in front of your chair or sofa.

Step 2. Measure the distance from the top of the cushion to your kneecap.

Step 3. Order risers to fill that distance.

What is your return and refund policy?
Refunds are provided for any reason within 60 days of the purchase date.  Your refund is issued after the risers are returned and received by mail. Include the original Packing Slip if possible.   Click the Policies tab above for details.

What is your cancellation policy?
Any order may be cancelled within 24 hours of ordering and sometimes longer.  To cancel, call or email with the order number requesting a cancellation.  You will be refunded for the total order amount paid, less 10%.  If it has already shipped, then a cancellation is not possible, but a return for a refund may be made within 60 days.

How can I make an exchange?
Simply return the items for a refund. (See Policy tab.) Then order the new ones at any time. Note, there’s no need to wait for the returns to be sent before ordering the new ones.

Can I use risers on a child’s bed or crib?
No. Never use these on any furniture that will move or hold an infant, such as a crib or high chair. Not for youth under the age of 16. And not for anyone who acts like they are under 16 and you know who you are.

Can I use risers on a reclining type chair?
No. The motion of leaning back in a reclining chair causes lateral movement and can cause it to tip over if it is too high on risers.  Do not use risers on any moving furniture.

Can I use risers on dining room chairs or bar stools?
No. Because dining chairs and bar stools must slide in and out, so they will fall off any risers when they move.

What if my child sometimes jumps on the bed?
Never use risers if there’s any jumping on beds or playing under any furniture on risers. Sorry kids.

Are these stable to use to raise or tilt a bed for acid reflux or GERT?
Yes.  These risers are heavy duty.  If you raise the head of the bed, be sure to only use them in a safe manner.

Who is that cartoon man?
That is Rex Riser. He is the Mascot and wears a paper hat. Rex enjoys hanging out, woodworking and painting. He’s also a show-off, so thanks for noticing – he likes that.

Who made the ‘Winter 2018’ illustration on the home page?

PRODUCT

Do you sell sets of four?
No. All risers are sold individually, not in sets. To order a set of four, enter Quantity = 4.

Which risers should I buy?
Please see the Buying Guide for the 3 steps.

Will these risers scratch a hard floor?
Maybe. Wood risers can scratch wood and other hard floors. Consider getting the self-adhesive Felt Buttons (or use your own) and attach to the bottom of your risers to prevent scratching. Carpeted floors do not need protection from risers.

What if the furniture legs have rollers?
Do NOT use any risers if your furniture can roll off (or tip off) of the risers. Please be safe and use good judgement.

Can I use these outdoors?
No. These riser are for indoor use only.

 

ORDERING & SHIPPING

How much does shipping cost?
Shipping fees are calculated by the website based on weight. The larger risers are quite heavy, but we try to keep your shipping cost as low as possible. After you load your Shopping Cart, you can see your shipping cost in Checkout BEFORE you pay.  

Why no “FREE SHIPPING”?  
Postage for shipping anything (especially heavy wood) is never free, so we do not mis-lead our customers buy inflating the item prices to offer “FREE” shipping.  This allows us to treat all customers fairly.   Note, shipping to Hawaii, Alaska and other locations may require an additional separate postage fee.

What if I have special instructions about my order?
Enter any special instructions un ‘Order Notes’ in the Checkout section. 

Also, please let us know how you found us in the ‘Order Notes’ section.  That is very helpful!

How will I know if my order went through?
After you complete your checkout, you then automatically see a page reading “Order Received.  Thank you.  You Order was received.“. That indicates your order is complete and no further action is required.  If you’re not sure, feel free to ask via email at Guy@FurnitureRisers.com.  You will NOT automatically receive a confirmation email, but you may request email confirmation if desired.

How long does it take for me to get my risers?
Most orders are completed in 2-3 days and then ship for 1-4 days.  All shipments have a tracking number.  If I am too busy to email it, feel free to ask.

May I pick my risers at your shop or buy them at a store?
Sorry, but no.  Local pick-ups are not allowed and they are not available at any other retailers.  

Do you ship to International destinations?
Sorry, but no. Only US destinations at this time.  Some Canadian customers use a US shipping address. Hope that helps.

Who delivers the risers?
United States Postal Service (USPS) or FedEx (for larger orders).  P.O. Boxes are not acceptable with FedEx. We try to use the USPS Priority Mail service which is 1-3 days depending on how far the destination is from California. We do not ship with UPS.
