FURNITURE SHOPPING IN HOLLAND
Expats shopping for furniture in the Netherlands should be aware that items on display in small, independent furniture shops (such as sofas, armchairs, dining tables) are typically made-to-order rather than being stocked in a warehouse. The lead time for receiving an item can run 4-6 weeks.
Online furniture shops (such as Home24 and fonQ), furniture retail chains (such as Beter Bed and Woonexpress), and flat-pack specialists (such as Ikea and Leen Bakker), on the other hand, do carry inventory and items can either be taken with you from the store or delivered within a few days to your home.
It is standard for a full-serve furniture or bed store in the Netherlands to make arrangements for delivery. Many also offer a take-away service for the old item in the case of larger items such as a bed or sofa. It is best to inquire about this extra service, if it is needed, at the time of purchase when delivery details are being made. If purchasing online, check the company’s delivery guidelines to see if they offer a takeaway service. There is usually a cost involved with this added service.
FURNITURE RENTAL COMPANIES
The concept of furniture rental is not widespread in the Netherlands. A few companies have started offering a leasing service but it is generally limited to a few key categories. Woon-Lease, for example, leases beds, sofas and dining tables, while Lease je Meubels offers just beds and sofas. Beter Bed, one of the largest bed store chains in the Netherlands, recently introduced a bed leasing option.
Most leasing companies offer a free moving service, in case you are moving house within the Netherlands, they will come and move the leased item(s) to the new location at no charge. Be aware, lease contract terms are typically 5 years in length (Woon-Lease does offer both 3 and 5-year terms), so if your planned stay is significantly shorter, furniture leasing will not be an option.
