The arms have steel bolts that are inserted through the base and fastened below by hand-tightened three pronged knobs. All Simplicity Sofas use the same patented assembly system.
It would be expensive to export a single sofa. My guess is that it would add $400 - $500. Additional pieces would cost about $100 each.
The best assurance I can give you about the quality of the products is our Total Satisfaction Warranty, the strongest warranty in the furniture industry.
"If you do not like our furniture for any reason whatsoever you may return it for a full refund, including all shipping charges, for a period of 1 year after purchase. In addition all frames, springs and cushions are covered by lifetime warranties. Simplicity Sofas warranties have no exceptions, exclusions or limitations."
