Home Staging FAQs

What is the process for property styling with Stagy?
You will need to book your staging day online and make full payment upfront. Once your payment is cleared and booking date and time is approved, one of our qualified stylists will arrange a site visit to take photos and measurements. After this Stagy will install and style your property prior to photos and the first open for inspection.
Can I see the furniture pieces you’ve chosen for my property?
Due to the fast turnaround time of our jobs, we generally aren’t able to supply you with pictures of our inventory. We are however able to send you inspiration pictures of previous Stagy properties that have a similar feel and demographic. If you have particular requirements, we strongly recommend you send us some pictures of what you have in mind – even better if you send through screen shots our website portfolio. Making furniture changes after we have completed the install is not part of what we priced for and may incur a small fee.
Can I request a certain style or specific pieces from your collection to go into my property?

The furniture and accessories we select for each property are based on a number of criteria including the style of your home, the buyer demographic, the suburb and stock availability. We are happy for you to provide images of interiors that you like to give us a sense of your personal style, and if the item you like is in stock we are happy to supply it, assuming it suits the property.

Can I just loan a few pieces from Stagy?

We don’t operate like a furniture hire company, so you must engage in our full styling services in order to hire our furniture and accessories.

Do I have to move out for the campaign?

As our furniture is designed for staging and styling purposes only and not for regular use, we do require that the property is vacant during the style campaign. This will allow us to install as efficiently as possible and ensures that our furniture and accessories remain in optimal condition.

Can some of my own furniture be used in the styling?

In some cases, we are able to advise on items to stay or go and can supplement your pieces with ours where suitable. For the most cohesive result however, we strongly suggest all personal items go into storage.

Where do you operate?

We are based in Auckland and have warehouses and property styling team in Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch. For any areas outside Auckland please send us an inquiry and we may be able to stage.

How long will the furniture be in my house?

Our standard rental period is 4 weeks + 2 weeks free for the  campaign. This allows at least one week either side of the campaign to cater for photography and any necessary overrun. If you require the furniture and accessories for longer, we offer weekly extensions upon completion of the initial agreement.

Can I book online?

Off course. All our packages are designed to be paid online. You may email us pictures of each room or perhaps a 60 second video covering all the rooms, living, hall/passage, kitchen and bathroom. 

What happens if my property sells before the end of the agreed period?

The term of the furniture and accessories rental is ‘up to’ the 6 weeks. Should the property sell prior to the quoted and agreed ‘up to’ period then we may collect the furniture and accessories as soon as practicable. In these cases, we are not obligated to provide a refund or other form of discount related to any period short of the agreed ‘up to’ period. The reason for this being, we schedule and allocate all of our furniture and accessories for all styling jobs in advance.

How long before my property goes to market should I contact Stagy?

We may often stage a house within 48 hours in an emergency. but we suggest booking your staging 2-3 weeks prior to the first open home inspection so we can ensure that we have ample time for preparation and planning.

Can some of my own furniture be used in the styling?

In some cases, we are able to advise on items to stay or go and can supplement your pieces with ours where suitable. For the most cohesive result however, we strongly suggest all personal items go into storage.

What are your payment terms?

For styling or staging services, payment must be made in full prior to installation. You can pay with your credit or debit card once you book a time and date on our "Pricing" page.

Do I need insurance?

We insure all of our furniture and accessories; however you will still need insurance for your house and property.

What will it cost me?

No quotes, no wasting time and no surprises with our transparent pricing packages.
