ABOUT CUSTOM MADE

Custom made is a limited production item, not a mass produced product. Cost is generally higher because of the lack of mass production and optimized distribution. Ordering custom made is like hiring a contractor to do work for you. It takes several hours of skilled labor over several days to make a custom item to your specifications. Shipping carriers do not discount much for small volume shipping. Cost is not being subsidized by a foreign government like is occurring with many imported products. When you buy this item, you support the local economy and promote the general welfare of the society.

What makes custom made better? Price is not the only measure of value, otherwise everyone would simply buy the cheapest product available. With custom made you have the value of the custom size, good workmanship, healthier materials, and a nice looking finish. Having the right size item for your needs, no compromises, is peace of mind. In a work environment, custom made can help increase your productivity. With custom made, you can get something that is unique and cannot be bought as a mass produced item.

ORDERING TIPS

  • Order dimensions are outside dimensions. Make sure that the stand dimensions can accommodate desired inside dimensions, the top and side material thickness, the thickness of ordered panels, and the 1/8 inch manufacturing tolerance.
  • Provide at least 1/4 or 1/2 inch clearance around top and sides of objects placed under the stand. You may want to add more clearance depending on your needs and the look you are going for.
  • If the stand is for a TV, make sure the stand top is at least 1 inch larger than the TV base.
  • Make sure the proper material thickness has been selected for your weight handling needs.
  • If the objects to be placed on the stand top are approaching the recommended weight limit for a particular material thickness, consider upgrading to the next thickness for solid performance, particularly if the stand is large. 
  • If one desires more than a utilitarian look, consider upgrading the finish quality to enhanced or better.
  • To help with the design process, you can make cardboard cutout of the stand to get a visual idea of what things will look like.

 

HOW TO ESTIMATE COST

If the basic stand fits your needs, the cost is the price of this listing. If you need customizations that go beyond the basic stand, to estimate cost, you simply add the price of the basic stand and the price of the desired customizations.

Example pricing, if you would like the basic stand to be customized to be 24 front x 12 side x 6 height inches, with the enhanced finish, then the estimated cost will be the basic stand, plus the Up to 24 inch Front, plus the Up to 12 inches Side, plus the Up to 6 inches Height, plus the Enhanced Finish Quality customizations.

 

SHIPPING

Shipping price is for within the continental USA.

This is a custom made, made to prder item, and manufactured upon demand. There can be up to a 30 day delay before item is shipped. Orders are done in batches, not individually. Current turnaround time is 20-30 days.

Shipping price includes transport costs, shipping box, packing materials, packing labor, and drop off with carrier. Because this is a custom made item with many possible configurations, often custom packing has to be done and custom shipping boxes made.

In the listing, some of the item price is included in the shipping price so that prices can be simple and easy to calculate. I do not hide shipping costs in the item price like many sellers do. As an individual doing small volume shipping, transport costs are typically 2-4 times more than what large corporations such as Walmart and Amazon pay. Because this is a custom made item with many possible configurations, to keep things simple, the shipping price is an average flatrate based upon previous shipping costs.

When shipping locations are long distance or remote, an additional shipping charge may be added to help cover transport costs.

Shipping to Hawaii, Alaska, Puerto Rico, and APOs is available, but size and weight restrictions apply. Please inquire for more information.
