Frequently Asked Questions
What is a qualified person or professional installer and how do I find one in my area?
A qualified person is someone with the skills and tools necessary to locate wall studs, identify the type of wall structure (wood, metal, masonry), and install screws correctly to the wall structure. Skills and tools include an electronic stud finder, drill motor and bits, screwdriver, and the ability to correctly use these tools.
For all other wall types, a construction professional must install the bed to the wall. A certified construction professional will be in compliance with applicable regulations in the province, state, or country where the furniture is installed.
Your local better business bureau or building inspector can give you a list of local contractors with knowledge of wall construction and cabinetry installation. An internet search for “Home Handy Service” or “Home Furniture Installation Services” may list qualified, professional installers in your local area.

What materials are used to make your furniture?
We use high-quality laminated particle boards, coated with a paper finish to give it its wood color and texture. The majority of our collections combine the properties of commercial melamine and papers that are highly resistant to scratches, stains and wear.
Did you know that Bestar was the first North American manufacturer of ready-to-assemble furniture to use a melamine finish? In fact, the majority of our products are covered with this material, which is recognized by the industry for its durability and resistance to scratches, stains and burns.
How do I clean my new Bestar Furniture?
To dust, we recommend using a soft, dry cloth. To remove stains, use a cloth soaked in a water and mild detergent mixture. To clean your furniture, avoid placing any wet objects directly on the furniture or using commercial cleaning products.

Do you have any assembly tips?
Here are four steps to facilitate the assembly of your Bestar furniture:
- Before starting, read the assembly instructions carefully and be willing to follow each step.
- Layout all the parts on the floor, including the hardware, and count them to make sure nothing is missing.
- When the instructions recommend doing so, enlist the help of another person to avoid injuring yourself or damaging the furniture.
- To avoid loosening the assembled components or damaging the wood, do not push, pull or drag the furniture over the floor or carpet. We recommend assembling the furniture as close as possible to its resting place. If you must move it, enlist the help of another person, lift it completely, and transport it slowly.
For additional help during assembly, you can also check our online support page.
