Does anyone have any suggestions or ideas for how to get a piece of furniture from the San Marcos outlet to Austin? Anyone delivery services that anyone has used? The Pottery Barn Outlet does not deliver!

Yeah, I need some people to actually lift and carry the couch as well so I'm kind of looking for a full-service solution.

When I bought a large, heavy piece of furniture from PB outlet a couple of years ago, the checkout employee gave me the name and number of a guy who I could hire for delivery. It wasn't an official PB delivery. It was just a nice guy with a truck that customers could hire directly for a delivery.

There are several guys on craigslist who do this as a business. They own a truck, and they will pick up and deliver items for you. Just try searching for "furniture delivery" or something similar. You can even give them the money and have them go buy it for you so you don't have to drive out to the store, although whether you trust them enough to do that is your call.

You could use Square Cow, they will move anything anywhere, you don't need to actually be "moving."

Although, unless the couch weighs a ton I don't see why couldn't get two friends and do it yourself with a uhaul. We just did this.

You don't know why? Maybe you could just trust me that that wouldn't work.

Thanks for the suggestions all!

That's weird. We bought a bunch of stuff at both Pottery Barn and Restoration Hardware - though they didn't do deliveries themselves, they gave us the names of people who did - I think we used "Three Little Guys" - or a name like that - who delivered stuff to us on three different occasions. Call up Pottery Barn (or Restoration Hardware) and insist a little - the staff in San Marcos at both stores is not helpful, bunch of part-time, university student slackers - but you should be able to get a phone number for a delivery service. Only thing is, after you make the purchase the delivery guys are supposed to take the furniture from the store (both PB and RH) within 24 hours. Both stores gave us several names of delivery guys in SM, you can shop around among them to find the best price.

Hmm, guess you found a solution but as I found the numbers they gave me at Restoration Hardware for delivery services:
Little Guys Movers 512-754-0311, Doherty 512-738-6853. We used Little Guys (who aren't that little..)
