General

Q: Are you open to the public?
A:Yes, the prices online are for the general public. For volume discounts please contact our office.

Click to return to the top of the FAQ.

Q: Why is your furniture so inexpensive?
A:We sell direct from the manufacturer to bring you near wholesale prices by eliminating the unnecessary overhead costs that retail stores must compensate for by charging 270% - 1000% mark-ups. Many of our partnered outlets are open to the public by appointment only, with no commissioned sales staff or glitzy displays. Reducing these overheads, allows us to pass the savings along to the customer! The price you pay is for the actual items, not extravagant expenses.

Click to return to the top of the FAQ.

Q: Is there any way I can view an item in person?
A:Wholesale Furniture Brokers Canada carries a large selection of furniture and it is physically impossible for the local warehouse to carry every item in stock. Also in doing so, the local partners would be subjected to higher operating costs due to the warehouse space required. To see a list of warehouse locations and their contact information, click here. Certain locations are actual stocking stores and have our popular items available on their showroom floor.

Q: What is the construction of the furniture?
A:Our pieces are made of both hardwood solids and fine hardwood veneers. Fine veneers are a hardwood which is thinly sliced and then glued to composite or wood. The fine veneers are used most likely on the sides of the lower cabinet, possibly on the drawer fronts and on table tops. Because solid wood tends to warp or split due to moist climates, fine veneers are very commonly used by the finest manufacturers. These fine veneers are also used because of their unique beauty. Some of our furniture is made from Rubberwood. Rubberwood (Hevea brasiliensis), also called Parawood in Thailand, is an eco-friendly hardwood from the maple family. Rubberwood, like maple, produces sap, but instead of maple sap it yields latex. All the latex in the world for rubber based products comes from Rubberwood. It has very little tendency to warp or crack and is the most ecologically friendly lumber used in today's furniture industry. The rubber tree's economic life span is normally 26-30 years, after which the latex production becomes very low. At this time the planters fell the tree and plant a new one. Rubberwood is only used after it is finished its latex producing cycle and dies, unlike other woods that are chopped down for the purpose of making furniture. Therefore, Rubberwood is eco-friendly in that we use what was going to waste.

Q: What is a platform bed? Do I need a foundation?
A:Platform bed frames are designed with slats or a board that can support the weight of a mattress without using a boxspring or foundation.

A:Scroll down to the bottom of the "product details" listing of the item you are interested in. These are setup dimensions; for shipping dimensions please contact our shipping department at shipping@GoWFB.ca. We strongly recommend you measure your door/opening the furniture will be required to pass through.

Q: What is the difference between Standard (Eastern) King size and California King size beds?
A:California King size is 4" longer and 4" narrower than a standard King size. Most stores only sell the Standard Eastern King mattress. California King's are a specialty mattress.

Cal-King Mattress 72" wide x 84" long
Eastern King Mattress 76" wide x 80" long

Q: What if my purchased items arrive damaged?
A:Although we try to ensure your order arrives safe and sound, everyone is aware shipping damages do happen once in a while. We request that you inspect your item(s) upon delivery.

If by chance you reach us after hours, please only refuse the item in question, and notate the damage to the item(s) and the box(s) in detail on the delivery receipt. Transporting additional items only increases the risk of damages and delays your delivery. Ensure you also verify the number of packages delivered with the packing slip you receive. As packaging differs from manufacturer, do use caution when opening your items to prevent scarring from knifes or misplacement of instructions and hardware. Should any damage be discovered upon opening your shipment, contact our office immediately and keep the shipping carton and inner packaging.

Upon notifying our office, we will file a claim and work with you on a case by case scenario. Please submit photos and a clear description of the defect to claims@GoWFB.ca. If your item arrives damaged and you do not wish to receive replacement or discounts our standard return policies will apply.
