Hernest currently operates six self-operated overseas warehouses in the United States, located in Los Angeles, Seattle, New Jersey, Atlanta, and Dallas. With a total storage area exceeding 900,000 square feet, these warehouses support various transportation modes including FedEx, UPS, LTL, and more. We have a robust storage and transportation system in place to provide users with efficient and cost-effective services.

II. EXPECTED DELIVERY DATE 
The 'Estimated Delivery' lead times displayed on each product page provide a range of dates for when your item is expected to arrive at your delivery location. This lead time includes the time for stock movement from manufacturing locations to our warehouse, as well as the last-mile delivery to your door. By entering your zip code on the product page, you can see an estimate of when you can expect to receive the item. Please keep in mind that these dates are estimates and unforeseen delays may occur. If you need us to postpone your delivery because your home is not ready, you can place your order and then reply to your order confirmation email with your special request. We will do our best to accommodate your request, but please understand that not all requests can be fulfilled. We aim to respond to your request within 1 business day.
