Thank you for visiting our Customer Care Page.
PLEASE NOTE: THERE ARE TWO WAYS TO PURCHASE TIDEWATER WORKSHOP FURNITURE IN 2017, FAST OR INEXPENSIVELY. If you want your order FAST, please order through one of our many, many online or retail affiliates, including the most popular shopping website. Google us for our online partners and you will have your order promptly. You will pay substantially more.
If you want to pay 50-100% less than our online partners and you are willing to wait patiently and order INEXPENSIVELY, please order directly from this, our factory wholesale website. Please do not be surprised if your have been waiting a while since we are happy to take online orders on this site for wholesale customers who do not require a lot of hand-holding and multiple email/phone contacts AND ARE WILLING TO WAIT!
THAT SAID, IF YOU ARE HAVING AN ISSUE OR YOUR ORDER HAS BEEN DELAYED MORE THAN 5 WEEKS, PLEASE EMAIL THE CEO AT HELP@TIDEWATERWORKSHOP.COM. PLEASE BE ADVISED WE MAY BE TAKING 6 WEEKS OR SO FOR MANY OF OUR POPULAR ITEMS. This is normal for this time of year. If you have been given multiple shipping dates, have a quality issue or need a complex problem solved, there may be a processing or communication problem with your order, so email our customer service at email@example.com or our CEO at firstname.lastname@example.org with a brief message. This email goes directly to the cell phone of the CEO, so please be assured that your issue will revive immediate attention if not an immediate personal reply. The CEO help account is set up with an auto responder so please don't create a loop by complaining about it. Less than 1% of the customers take issue with the auto response and 100% are satisfied after the fact. You will be satisfied as well.
This page is designed to give you the all the information you will need and as much information as you would get if you were to call us at
(800) 666-8433 or email us at email@example.com
Please do not send us emails requiring immediate attention between 4:30 on Friday until 8:30am on Monday. We don't charge enough for our products to provide around the clock and weekend customer service. Thank you for your understanding. Also PLEASE read the Terms & Comditions page carefully if you are frustrated and need immediate attention.
Tidewater Workshop typically ships MOST items in 3-4 weeks BUT in the middle of the summer we are taking 3-4 weeks longer than that. If your order has the online order prefix of 709-780 or a phone/mail prefix of 299-305, please note that your order is in queue and has either shipped or is being prepared to ship. (update date: today)
Please be aware that we are re-building Tidewater Workshop customer service from the ground up as we adapt to the migration form mostly phone/mail orders to a greater number of internet and affiliate sales/orders. We are creating infrastructure to provide timely tracking and shipping information but we are not there yet. We have had some difficulty with this transition but please be patient as we should have everything in place shortly.
If you have been given multiple shipping dates due to a processing error, please note that we have prioritized these orders and anticipate have them 100% shipped by the end of the week after the order expiration date shown on the upper right corner of this website. If it appears you may have to wait longer than 6 weeks for your order, you should receive a mailed postcard in which you can accept the revised shipping date or cancel the order.
Some items, including sale items or items that are part of large orders, can take a little longer. During some months, and especially the weeks after January 1st, it may take up to 6 weeks for delivery of some items. Because of this, our staff sometimes has difficulty keeping up with the volume of phone calls and emails regarding status. Please be patient. We refuse to hire inexperienced staff to help with the brief spike in contact because the service you would receive would be less than if you waited for a return call or email. Please note that we answer the phones M-F (except business holidays) from 10-2 EDT. We have added additional staff between 10 and 2 Monday through Friday so if you need to reach us, these are the best hours. In the unlikely event you do not reach our office staff on your first try, please rest assured that your call will be returned or handled in the order in which it was received.

Telephone & URGENT Contact/Action Requests:
All of our departments are open from 10AM to 2PM, Eastern
Time, Monday through Friday. All calls placed outside of those
hours or during peak call times will have the option to leave voice mail, which we check
and reply to as soon as possible in the order in which the calls are received. This time of year we experience a spike in telephone order, status, inquiry, and question-related phone calls. If you need to leave a voicemail, please very briefly provide in this order; YOUR NAME, ORDER NUMBER, TELEPHONE NUMBER, and HOME STATE along with exactly what you need and SPEAK VERY SLOWLY. We have had a number of callers complain about the lack of a call back who failed to leave a message with the above information stated clearly and slowly.
We are currently running at least 4-6 weeks behind our original estimated order ship dates on SOME items, longer on a few, and shorter than a week behind on most others. Please be patient as we are working 2 shifts daily and anticipate having all orders shipped at the original estimated date with the next couple weeks. We appreciate your business and, since most of our customers are repeat buyers, look forward to hearing from you again soon.
