For Early November's delivery, all chairs that are not taken by the 31st of October will be taken by a company.

There won't be anymore in Late November as our coordinator will be out on vacation.

We also can't guarantee that we have sufficient chairs coming for Xmas.

Already received notifications that November's shipment had reached the docks.

Now waiting for load to be released and unloaded from container.
It's November/December and vendors are stocking for Xmas, so expect some delays.

Also note the next batch which i stated above January, maybe delayed to February instead as it's peak in November-January .

Take note we can only accept orders with clear information and specifications stated.

This is to prevent us from making any mistakes in order taking and delivering.

We can't accept orders providing vague information like, " I want the chair the minister is using", " I want to buy a normal herman miller chair", etc.

I regret to inform End Jan's delivery is bound to be delayed to Feb.

Chairs were ordered in December, that's towards the Xmas season, when suppliers around the world are ordering in massive amount thus there's a very bad delay in manufacturing.

When it's set out in sea, it takes 4 weeks to arrive, it coincides with the Chinese New Year in Asia. Thus it will be jammed pack and there will be shipping delays as well.

Quick question: If I buy from this MO, if I need to claim warranty, say 10 years later in the unlikely event that this MO is no longer going on, can I go direct to the agent in Singapore or the supplier in the US?

FAQ:

Difference between Hard castors and standard castors?

Ans: Standard castors is fine on carpet and still works on hard floors.

Hard Castors has an additional rubber coating for better grip and traction to reduce gliding from chair on hard floor.
Your chair keeps better in place even on smooth surface so you are less likely to get out of position.


What's the setting for fully loaded?
Ans: It's with adjustable arms, forward tilt and tilt limiter. You will have to add on the rest separately.

Headrest's difference?
Ans: Please check out:
http://deluxeforums.hardwarezone.com...3-post461.html

I personally highly recommend the fully adjustable mesh headrest.


Posturefit VS Lumbar pad's difference?
Ans: Posture fit can control exactly how much support with a knob, it can't go up-down and is fixed in position. Lumbar Pad can go up-down movement but with only two length of depth for support

I will recommend Posture fit, it not only supports the spine but the lower back muscles.
If you slouch, the lumbar pad may be pushed out of position.

Had not heard any complains before on Posture Fit, but sometimes on the lumbar pad.

Is it worth to get the Polished Aluminium?
Ans: Actually the polished aluminium is not only for the better look. IMHO the Chrome Plating seems to make it harder to scratch or scratches less visible.

Why it takes so long to arrive?
Even if you order from the local A.D, there's a good chance you will have to wait as long if it's not available on ready stock.
We go by ship which takes a long time to sail.
It's not only able to significantly reduce the cost of the chairs.
It reduces the chance of damage as handling by air freight is typically very rough compare to ocean freight.
When you go with air freight, they care about speed, not handling.
For Sea ship, there may be delays, subjected to
  • Enviromental factors - Weather or route taken for the best safety.
  • Customs delays - Need to pay for GST, apply permits, have inspections, etc
  • Warehouse delays - Need to que to unload
  • Fumigation process

So please be patient with your delivery as there's no way we can dictate the ship to sail faster nor have any tracking to know the exact location.


How long it typically takes to arrive?
If yours is an order with configuration listed on the MO, it's typically 8-10 weeks for delivery, but we always order in ahead of time so the waiting time narrows a little.

If your order is a configuration out of those listed on the MO, a custom ordered chair.
It will take much longer for delivery and subjected to delays.
As your order has to be made specially just 1 and have to fit into our available sailing dates.
Your chair may arrive too early, or come too late and need to wait for the next available sailing slot.

Typically a custom ordered chair takes 6-10 weeks just for Herman Miller to ship to the Vendor and the Vendor takes another week to ship to the Coast for shipping.
Shipping process takes about 6 weeks.

So it's necessary to wait at least 13 weeks for custom ordered chairs.

Once it's cleared from Singapore Customs, it only takes 1-2 days to arrange delivery on our side.
If self pick up, it will be fast, probably able to collect on next day.
If courier delivery, will take a little longer as the courier need to schedule on their own.
So you can see it's never us who is delaying, a bulk of the waiting time is actually from HM.
