Just because you can buy something online doesn’t always mean that you should. And when it comes to buying new furniture, it’s a purchase that requires your physical presence so you can see and touch what you’re getting. Particularly when you’re getting full rooms of furniture at steeply discounted prices.
Unclaimed Freight – which has been serving the Lehigh Valley for more than five decades – has been able to continuously offer customers top-quality products to fit their everyday lifestyles simply because these items are canceled orders, closeouts, overruns and special buyouts that were originally destined for other brand-name stores. When Unclaimed Freight intercepts these orders, purchases them for pennies on the dollar and brings them to modest no-frills warehouses instead of expensive showrooms, they’re able to sell the products at a fraction of the regular prices.
This is exactly how Unclaimed Freight’s ownership team sees the company moving forward – with the same business model that has proven successful for years.
“Our business model has always been simple – we sell brand name furniture for less, and without gimmicky promotions. Period,” says Joseph Colabella, owner and originator of Unclaimed Freight. “We often see massive inventories come in where we’re able to liquidate them at extremely low prices. When they’re gone, they’re gone.”
One of the keys of furniture shopping is thinking about how that furniture will fit your lifestyle – not only now, but in the future. This is why it’s important to get into a furniture store to see pieces in person. You’ll be able to get a feel for the durability and the exact size, as well as know that you’ve chosen an exact color that will work with your home’s existing décor.
No matter which room in your home you’re outfitting, Unclaimed Freight has inventory to help fill it. The store currently carries living room, dining room, bedroom and home office pieces, along with mattresses, youth furniture and accent décor such as rugs, lighting, wall art and more. They also carry brand names such as Serta Upholstery, Simmons, Signature Design, King Koil bedding, and more.
Frequently updated circulars, website and social media alert customers to new inventory as it becomes available in the store, which also has locations in Reading, Clifton and East Brunswick. With new shipments arriving frequently, Unclaimed Freight receives a high volume of surplus merchandise and must act quickly to move it off the floor to make room for incoming goods. Unclaimed Freight also ships all over the Valley to make sure that customers get their orders as quickly as possible.
The holiday season is a time of year when you’ll want your home to be looking its best, and the good news is that you won’t have to wait for a Black Friday or Christmas sale to take advantage of huge savings. Nine-piece and 11-piece room packages, plus 2-piece sofa and loveseat packages are traditionally available for between $500 to $1,000, so you can have your furniture in place in your home before your holiday visitors arrive. You’ll also be the smart one relaxing on your new furniture when everyone else is out shopping the post-holiday “sales” at the big-box stores and still paying more.
“We have an atmosphere of constantly revolving merchandise so that you truly never know what you’re going to find,” says Colabella. “We encourage customers to take advantage and snatch up what they want when they see it. At the prices we offer, we just want to turn that value over to our customers and let them indulge in their sense of style.”
