Luke Whitlinger

COO of Designers Delivery Service, Inc. and Installation Manager, Luke Whitlinger, has almost 40 years of experience in the delivery and installation industry.  Luke has inspired his team to be leaders in White Glove Service, with strong attention to detail, a high level of professionalism, and a can-do attitude to exceed our client's expectations. His experience and expertise are invaluable and a driving force behind the success of Designers Delivery Service.  


Starting off in delivery and installation for the model home industry in 1983, Luke went on to install systems furniture for large commercial facilities, government and law enforcement, entertainment, and healthcare.  Experience with the myriad of lines in the industry enabled him to become a unique problem solver, as parts and pieces from the manufacturers often failed to ship for items needing to be installed. In 1995 he was inspired to branch out on his own, creating a company that focused on customer service and repeat business.

Focusing on the high-end residential market in 2001, Luke created a strong team that understands high-end furniture, and the care it requires.  He has continued to provide excellence in service, as well as a unique sensitivity to the client and end-user which is a requirement of the luxury market.  Luke's knowledge of space planning and code restrictions for both commercial and residential environments allows him to troubleshoot on-site. Completing a project in a more professional, efficient, and cost-effective method is his hallmark.
