Renovations on Maggie

We researched our Captain and Co-Captain seats extensively for years and what always stopped us was the cost. It wasn’t the cost of the chairs that always bothered us, but it was the shipping and handling. Most companies were charging as much for the chairs as for the delivery of them, we were just not comfortable with that. Most places only had warehouses so we could not see the product prior to purchasing and that is why we leaned towards the Flexsteel brand for quality plus they had many positive reviews.


We did not need installation, Jerry is the man when it comes to any projects on our home. All we needed was to get them delivered without it costing as much as one chair was costing us. We checked with several Camping World’s but for the most part, they didn’t carry any in stock and would have to order them. We thought that would lighten the charges shipping to a retail store…not…their charge was phenomenal.


We went to a few salvage yards to find a set of used ones but that never turned out well either. Every time we were on a mission and every time throughout the years ended up in such frustration, we gave up on the idea of getting new chairs time after time.


Once again, another search began but this time with very different results. We found a company located in Pompano Beach, Florida that began with a simple email asking about pricing. We received an almost immediate response, then a follow up quote and before we knew it, the ball was rolling.

We were a bit concerned since we were clear across the country in California at the pumpkin lot and this quote had to be wrong. The prices of the chairs were the same as other places we had looked, maybe a little less, but it was the delivery that was unbelievable. The quote read, the delivery was only $128 for both chairs.


I immediately got on the phone with them so we could finalize the deal and he explained that since we were at a business location the shipping and handling would be as quoted. But, if we were at a residential location there would be an additional charge of $75, even with the additional charge, they would be less than half of what the others were charging per chair and this was for both. I had to ask him several times and read it over several times on the written quote.

Timing is of the utmost importance when traveling the way we do, he guaranteed we would have our chairs by the 19th of October. Even though we weren‘t leaving until the 31st , we gave ourselves enough cushion…just in case, after all we still needed to install them. The arrangements began, we ordered them, paid for them and then waited. Of course the thoughts of being ripped off or scammed continued to cross our minds since this all flowed so nicely, something had to be wrong…right? Wrong…those thoughts were far gone on the 19th when the delivery truck showed up with our perfect chairs in perfect condition.

Whoo-hoo! Good, comfortable chairs are a must, especially since you were going to drive across the country. It's great to hear about a company that quotes a good price and delivers as promised.
