There are many providers of Furniture, Fitout and Equipment services who focus on providing logistics and/or interior design services. So, when it comes to choosing a provider for your FF&E needs, how do you know you’ve chosen the right one? Here are five things you need to know before settling on an FF&E provider.
- Will this FF&E provider visit the site first?
Before work can begin in the FF&E space, a site visit and walk through are vital to properly plan the installation process. The FF&E service provider you choose should be willing and able to visit before, during and after the project so they can meet face-to-face with any of the designers and others involved in the project. At Grace, every project is unique, and we tailor our solutions to your individual business needs. To achieve this tailored and personal approach, we will always visit the site before we start the project. We’ll be on the live site working alongside builders, painters, and other tradespeople so we can work with them to complete the project for you on time and within budget.
- What past experience does the FF&E provider have in your industry?
The provider you choose should have extensive experience in your industry. With experience comes extensive knowledge and expertise required to complete a project to the highest of quality.At Grace, we have years of experience working on a live site in a number of industries, making us capable of producing successful FF&E services to suit every scale in every industry, including:

- Is the FF&E provider able to provide each turnkey service?
Will the provider you choose be able to handle logistics, project management, installation and purchasing? If you require particular turnkey services, you need to ensure that the provider you choose has the ability to provide them. From a centralised coordination of vendors to freight management and inventory management, you can trust Grace Business Services to provide efficient and specialised commercial refurbishment services. We tailor our turnkey solutions to suit your individual needs.
- Will you have a support contact for logistics?
Your provider should assign a dedicated coordinator responsible for all logistics and transportation. This coordinator needs to update you on timelines, budgets and the overall performance of the project. At Grace, we provide you with a dedicated project manager who will act as your point of contact throughout the entire project. We’ll be there with you from end-to-end so you can focus on what you do best.
