You will be reimbursed in case you find any defected, damaged or missing part. Assembly is also offered by the company with an additional fee, with free repair of damage during the 90-day warranty period.

Storage

Conversion tops are much lighter than regular tables and can be folded in half. There are some standard tables available in the market that can also be folded and stored. However, they still take a lot of additional space to be set up.
