A Gurgaon-based e-commerce portal, Get My Couch facilitates buying and selling of second-hand furniture and factory seconds across Delhi and NCR. Founded by a motley bunch of people whose skill sets are in perfect sync, we like how well-stocked this virtual market is and how clean and attractive everything looks. Bring together two IIT guys, one foodie photographer, a smart marketer and a design geek and you’ve got a winning combination. Or so this venture proves.
Wondering if they can vouch for the couch they be sellin’? The answer is yes – The GMC team verifies the product (inspecting every arm and leg) with a hawk’s eye before taking the deal forward so there are no moth-eaten, weather-broken chairs making their way to the site. After they’ve done the quality check, the furniture is restored, polished and disinfected. The photographer then swings into action clicking every possible angle to make buying decisions easier.
The prices are mostly slashed by 30-60% and we were chuffed to find chests and cabinets from Woodcraft and Urban Ladder at prices we didn’t expect. In short, there are many benefits of signing up. You’re not only saved the trouble of transporting that coffee table in the small boot of your car, but there’s also no uncomfortable haggling on prices involved either. The brand also has an easy two-day and no questions asked return policy if you don’t think the recliner (or anything else) makes the cut.
Besides, the filtration process also allows you to narrow searches based on what colours you like, what your budget is and what condition you’d like the furniture to be in. THIS is every lazy person’s dream. Serious.
