DIY Furniture Installation vs. Hiring a Pro

It’s the age-old question – should you install your new furniture yourself or hire a professional to do it? The answer isn’t always an easy one. It depends on the complexity of the installation as well as your do-it-yourself abilities. Some people are more adept at being handy and can install just about anything without breaking a sweat. Others are not so lucky. This article will attempt to shed some light on which choice is best for you and your new furniture.

Here at Bradd and Hall we respect your decision to go the do-it-yourself route when it comes to your furniture installation and we do our best to provide you with all the help you need to make it a successful endeavor. On our Measuring and Installation Help page here, we provide a Furniture Measuring Guide, a Installation Helps guide, and a Lambright Assembly sheet for your convenience. Please note that Bradd and Hall does not provide detailed installation instructions due to the uniqueness of each individual vehicle. However, in addition to the help sheets mentioned above, many installations are self-explanatory and if you do need assistance you can contact us and we will be glad to assist you in any way we can.

For those of you who aren’t sure which option is best for you, DIY or Hiring a Professional, let us try to show the pros and cons of each.

Many would argue that installing your new furniture yourself will save you money and in many instances that could very well be true. However, the reality is that someone with little experience and ability may actually cause the installation to cost more than having a professional do it. Mistakes can not only damage the RV but also the furniture and require further corrections or even replacements to be needed.

If you know you are not very handy when it comes to things like this and you are planning a visit to our area, we would suggest you contact our experienced installation technicians to have your new furniture installed professionally and right the first time.

Because we ship most of our furniture out of state it is not feasible for many of our customers to come to us for installation.  If you are not a DIY kind of person then we recommend finding a competent RV Dealer or RV Service facility in your area. We can also ship your furniture directly to them.  That said we do not have a list of dealers and service centers we recommend. A simple Google search can help you find a reputable installation center. Or maybe you already have someone who works on your RV.

If you would prefer your furniture to be installed by our experienced installation technicians at our warehouse in Elkhart, Indiana we would be happy to schedule that for you. As you would expect, appointments are necessary for these services. Installation estimates and appointment scheduling are available by calling our office at (800) 445-1830 or clicking here. Most furniture installations can be completed in 1 day or less, with most only taking a few hours to be completed. Please feel free to let us know how we can best help you.
