Due to some feedback and inquiries, we have decided that the public needed more information about those trucks that go door-to-door selling furniture. This page is set up to answer questions that you have and give you real information about furniture peddling and those trucks that you see in your neighborhood. We hope you find the information that you are looking for in order to make an informed decision.

People in Charlotte, NC discussing the annual furniture trucks:
Check out this consumer forum. You will see a lot of people saying that selling furniture off the back of a truck is a scam and then you will see that other people say it's a good idea. If you look closer you will notice that the people complaining never bought any furniture off a truck, but the people who say good things about it, did buy furniture off of a truck and they are happy with the purchases. The first group was passing judgment on something they were unfamiliar with based on fear and the second group passed judgment based on experience. Which group would YOU be in?
Furniture Peddling is mobile direct to consumer selling of new household furnishings.
Most furniture peddlers are from the Piedmont Triad area of North Carolina. This area is known as the "Furniture Capitol of the World". For nearly 150 years most of the furniture manufactures in the country made their home within 100 miles of the Triad. Not just large well known brands but small family operated companies too. For nearly 50 years men have loaded trucks full of furniture and traveled around, selling recliners and seeing the country. As time progressed so did the business and what started out as one man selling recliners from a pickup truck progressed to a couple of guys selling living room suites from straight trucks and now crews of 3 or 4 guys in a semi-truck filled with dining rooms, bedrooms, sofas, recliners, clocks and anything else you need for your house.
Look at all the people who shop at Nebraska Furniture Mart and are unhappy with them. Any time you buy anything from anywhere you run a risk of problems. Just because it's a store instead of a truck doesn't mean you will be satisfied.
