Havertys Furniture Gains Competitive Edge Over Competition in Home Final-Mile Delivery Using Containerized Mobile Warehousing

Since 1989, we've been revolutionizing final-mile delivery with our demountable truck body systems. In particular, Havertys Furniture, a Top 100 furniture company, has been using our Warehouse-On-Wheels system to provide their customers with best-in-class furniture delivery for over 15 years. With over 425 demountable containers and over 75 demountable semi-trailers, Havertys has transformed their delivery fleet to become more productive, sustainable, and cost-effective. Before using our demountable system, Havertys was using "back of store" warehousing, which led to high inventory costs and was quickly becoming obsolete. Greg Johnson, Havertys' Vice President of Distribution, has seen firsthand the benefits of using our system saying, "The Demountable system allows Havertys to be best in class in home delivery. Pre-loading containers at our distribution centers for remote delivery is an important step in providing a high quality customer experience. Delivering a quality product on time is part of why customers have learned to count on Havertys for over 130 years."
Not only has Demountable Concepts helped Havertys become more efficient, but our equipment has also been proven to last! As well as purchasing new equipment, Havertys continues to recondition older trailer and chassis lifts, extending the life of assets that are already over 15 years old. Overall, customers have found the following advantages from using our system:

  • Increased amount of stops per day.
  • Increased revenue and customer base by accessing new regional markets.
  • Increased customer satisfaction by delivering purchases sooner.
  • Reduced fuel expenditures by consolidating furniture hauled to regional markets.
  • Reduced costly product damage and returns by eliminating double handling of furniture.
  • Reduced overtime, insurance, and workers' compensation expenses.
  • Reduced driver payroll by utilizing non-CDL drivers for home delivery routes.

Demountable Concepts will work with your suppliers to install the system onto your new or existing straight-trucks. The Demountable Concepts semi-trailer for hauling multiple bodies is delivered road-ready, and we'll provide you with free driver training upon your equipment's delivery. It's also important to know that we make sure you experience little or no impact to your productivity during your transition to our system.
