Cabinetry

The Cabinet en-Counter offer a free design consultation for cabinetry to get ideas of what our clients are looking for, budgeting and pictures or designs from our clients that excite and inspire them. We assess a $750.00 fee for the drawing this includes an in-home measure and a colored 3D rendering of your potential space with one revision.

The time frame in which you will receive drawing is 3 weeks, unless notified otherwise. Further revisions of the cabinetry for your space will be charged at an hourly rate of $100 per hour.

If the client would like to move forward and purchase the cabinetry, the initial fee of $750 will be applied to the deposit of the cabinetry.

If the client would like to pick up the cabinetry at our warehouse, we charge a flat fee of $100 for our time to help you load the cabinetry.

Note: Our cabinetry prices do not include glass shelves, hardware, or installation.

Payment

A 50% deposit of the price of the cabinetry minus the initial fee of $750 is required to order.

Upon delivery of the cabinetry to our warehouse, we will notify the client and hold the cabinetry for 30 days. After the 30-day mark, we charge a 1% storage fee of the total price of the cabinetry order, to be invoiced each month, per month. This rate will not be prorated.

The final balance of the cabinetry is due at the time of scheduling delivery of the cabinetry. If our client would like to pick the cabinetry up at our warehouse, payment is due at the time of pick up.

Note: If our client’s job site is running behind after the cabinets are delivered, the cabinets need to be inspected within 30 days of delivery to our warehouse or client’s job site. In the instance any of the cabinetry is damaged, the Cabinet en-Counter can put in a warranty claim to get the cabinet(s) replaced at no charge to the client.

Once cabinets are installed all our cabinet companies require a full year of a warming and cooling cycle of the cabinets before warranty issues can be addressed.
