Buying furniture in Kassel

When shopping for furniture in Kassel, it is important to keep in mind that many furniture stores have long shipping times. Anywhere from 3-2 weeks isn't strange for a German furniture store to have your items shipped to you and in many cases, 2 weeks is the typical time frame.


To avoid having your comfort disrupted or the beginning of your stay in Kassel unpleasant, you want to ensure that you plan ahead. Will you be staying in a hotel until you find an apartment? Have you already found an apartment but are waiting for your lease to start? Do you already have an apartment and are actively looking to furnish. These are just a few of the questions you will have to ask yourself in order to determine just how long you can wait for your furniture to be delivered.


In the case that you are flexible and can stick out the long delivery times, then the options that you will have to furnish your home, will indeed be wider. If not, then you will want to communicate this with the stores that you are planning on purchasing through, to ensure that you will be able to get your items on time. If not, you may want to consider renting furniture from a furniture rental company until your items are delivered.

Buying furniture in Inglostadt

One of the most dreaded things when it comes to finding furniture in Germany, is the wait that usually accompanies it. Having found a piece that you would love to incorporate into your new Inglostadt apartment, it can be very discouraging hearing, “This will take about 2 weeks to get to you”. While this is something that is very common in German, those who are just making their way into the society may have their eyes opened in shock for a few minutes before things start settling in. Twelve weeks for furniture to get to you, are they kidding? They must be, right? Actually, they're not, the problem that you may come across is that quite a few stores only house the products that you see in the showroom. Upon purchase, the company will have to get the furniture from their supplier.


It may sound like a tragedy, after all, twelve weeks is a really long time. However, with viable options like furniture leasing and proper planning and preparation, 2 weeks isn't all that long, especially not where furniture that you just 'must have' is concerned.


Though many stores do take a while to ship items to the buyers, it's not always the case and thus finding out from the store is the best way to determine in which cases it's true and which one's its not. Who knows, you may get a lucky streak where all the stores you come across have the products you want on hand.

Buying furniture in Heidelberg

Are you moving to Heidelberg? Congratulations, it's such a fun and exciting city that's full of life. One of the things that you can't forget is that you'll need to furnish your home. Granted, with all the beauty that the city has to offer, you're probably wondering why on earth you'll need to furnish, after all, you could just live under the stars, taking it all in. Well, the winter gets cold, it gets so cold that at times you wish you could just admire all the beauty from your window, never having to step a foot through your front door. In these moments, the couch or your bed, along with a nice thick blanking will be your touching stone.


If you arrive in Heidelberg in the winter, one mistake you won't want to make, is taking the bus or train or attempting to walk to the furniture stores. It will be a long, dreaded walk, believe it! The majority of the times, furniture stores are freestanding buildings, a lot of them resembling a chic warehouse with a grandiose parking lot in the front. What this means is that they aren't typically found in city centers and thus you may be looking at having long waiting times for the bus and train in the not so friendly winter weather. Take your car, have a friend drive you, rent a car, but don't try to walk or count on public transportation, unless you really don't live too far away.


Here are some wonderful furniture stores in Heidelberg that you should definitely make a trip to:
