We do our best to quote freight prices on furniture deliveries. Due to the nature of the product and our country, sometimes we are unable to automatically generate the most accurate price. This is especially apparent for the South Island, remote areas and rural areas.
SOUTH ISLAND - For deliveries to the South Island, please contact us for an accurate freight price. Our website will not automatically calculate shipping charges for orders going to the South Island.
RURAL AREA'S - We can sometimes deliver to rural areas for no extra charge. This depends on how far away you are located from the nearest main township. If you are unsure please contact us for an accurate freight price.
WAIHEKE ISLAND - We can deliver to Waiheke Island, however we will need to generate an accurate freight price. Please contact us for Waiheke deliveries.
ACCURATE PRICE - If you believe the freight cost calculated is incorrect, or you want us to quote your order exactly, please contact us for an accurate freight price.
EXCLUDED DELIVERY AREAS - We do not deliver to: Great Barrier Island, Chatham Island, Matakana Island & Stewart Island.

Deliveries - General Information & Delivery Timeframes
- Depending on the quantity and nature of the items you have ordered, delivery times may vary. For example, in-stock items are often available for prompt dispatch within a week or so, but in some cases there is an additional lead time for us to receive the product into our warehouse first (such as with NZ made mattresses and custom made furniture). This will normally be stated in the product description.
- For most orders, please allow approximately two weeks for delivery. Some custom or made-to-order pieces can take longer to process. We will always endeavor to deliver your goods in the shortest possible time.
- If you are needing your goods delivered for a specific date, please get in touch with The Furniture Store team to make arrangements - for example we are often able to assist with furniture delivery on a moving day within our local Auckland delivery area.
- Please note that during busy periods such as Christmas, the time for delivery may be longer than usual.
If you are needing an item urgently, we will endeavor to meet your requirements given enough notice to do so. Feel free to contact our team if you require any additional information regarding delivery times for your order.
Large Quantity & Custom Orders
Generally, all items shown on our website are in stock. However in the case of large quantity or custom orders, we will do our best to have these ready for dispatch within a reasonable time period and will liaise with you to do so. In the odd occasion we are unable to deliver within a normal time period, we will contact you within 48 hours of your purchase. Ask our helpful team for an estimated lead time, or to otherwise request a due date if required.
We offer delivery to rural Auckland addresses at no extra cost. Other rural regions in the North and South islands may incur slightly higher delivery costs. These will be reflected in the shipping costs at the time of checkout.

This may incur additional charges at time of delivery - please get in touch with our team for more details about assembling a particular product for you.

Our range of classic, platform-style bed bases are suitable for all types of mattresses and come in a range of stylish fabrics - no valance needed!
Made to order from Single to California King sizing, these bases offer all the support your mattress needs, with a solid internal structure to give an even weight distribution across the length and width of the bed. All bases are also supplied with standard headboard fittings and bolts.
Please note, all bases made in King, Super King and California King size are made in two pieces with brackets to join them at the center, due to their large overall size. If access to your room is limited, we can also have Queen bases made in this same "split" style - simply select "Queen Split" as your preferred option when ordering.
Being custom made to order, please allow approximately 1 to 2 weeks for manufacturing if we don't have your preferred size and fabric choice in stock.
