Getting stuff delivered in Kaohsiung

I’ve heard it’s a challenge to do some E-bay orders in Taiwan. What is it like getting local orders delivered in Kaohsiung? The apartments I’m considering seem to have a lot of stuff (e.g. couches, mattresses). If I wanted to get deliveries for electronics, furniture, plants or something else I didn’t want to truck on the MRT, how easy is or hard is that? I heard it was generally hard to get a US sized washer and dryer in part because a lot of pipes for the laundry aren’t set-up for hot water. Is that correct?
