Pre-Sales Questions

It depends on if you ordered a standard, a modified, or a custom solution. Our standard solutions typically have a lead time between 3 to 4 weeks. Modified solutions can take up 4 to 5 weeks. Custom solutions take anywhere from 6 to 12 weeks. If your project requires a component to be ordered from a third-party, we'll wait for that part to arrive to start building your furniture solution. If you need a standard workbench to be built in 5 business days, please check our Smart Ship ™ options.

Product Specific Questions

12 years. 3 Shifts. Labor included. Read more on our warranty page!

All of our workbenches are manufactured at our facility located in Austin, Texas. Our sales and production teams work together in our one facility. Learn more about us!

Basix™, Bench Plus™, and Benchmarx™ are all a part of our standard product line. The most significant difference between these product types is the upper storage. Basix has no additional storage. Bench Plus has one fixed shelf above the surface. Benchmarx allows you to add multiple upper shelves and more accessory options such as pegboards, monitor mounts, and upper cabinets. Our product line is interchangeable. You can start with Basix and upgrade it Benchmarx or Bench Plus in the future with easy-to-install unistruts. Learn more by visiting our product pages!

Benchmarx upper units come unassembled to prevent any damages during shipment. The assembly instructions are included in the shipment. If somehow the assembly installations cannot be located, please check our assembly page for instructions.

Unless it is requested, all of our workbenches come fully-assembled. For international orders, we recommend bolt together (knocked down) Basix or Benchmarx to avoid high shipment costs.

Yes, we do.

Our workbenches are built to last. Depending on your task and load capacity needs, our benches can be built with 2" square tubular 11-gauge steel and designed to hold up to a 20,000 lb. load with additional welded support. For extreme weight-bearing requirements, please contact our engineering team through your dedicated Design Consultant.

A standard Basix (FBX603630 HD w/ levelers and an HPL top) weighs 146 lbs. Depending on the workbench size, work surface selection, upper and lower units, and the accessories, the weight can go up to 500 lbs. or more.

Shipping Questions

Fully inspect the shipment prior to signing the delivery receipt and if shipping damage is found, then sign for the shipment as damaged. If you cannot uncrate it during delivery and you are suspicious that there might be shipping damage, at least note “possible damage” when signing off on the shipping notice. Then contact Formaspace to begin the customer service and replacement process.

Yes, we offer expedited and delayed shipments. We will do our best to accommodate your facility availability and operation time frames.

Yes, but any shipping damage needs to be escalated to your own carrier service in such scenarios. In these unique cases, our involvement in shipment damage cases is limited. We always take pictures prior to shipment and email them to our clients with shipment notification emails.

Shipping notifications are automated via email to the person who placed the order. Feel free to contact your Design Consultant if you cannot locate your tracking number or if you haven't yet received it.

Yes, but we recommend ordering our knocked down (bolt together) furniture solutions.

Installation Questions
