Freight deliveries are curb side delivery. Your skid will be dropped off in your driveway. You will need to make arrangements to bring the flooring inside your home.

 

It is very important to provide us with your best contact number, so we or the freight company can reach you during the day – usually, a cell phone number is the best option. This will assure speedy communication, and a fast delivery.

 

After You Place Your Order

Most of our orders are shipped out within 1- 5 business days after the payment is received, with the estimated transit time ranging from 1- 10 business days. We ship LTL orders (skids) with the most reputable national carriers like Fedex Freight, R&L, Estes and others. Smaller orders we ship with UPS, Fedex or the Postal Service. Orders provided with different billing and shipping address may require additional verification before shipping.

If you order moldings with your flooring, moldings will ship separate via FedEx.

 

Right after shipment, we will email you a confirmation with the name of the freight carrier as well as a tracking number and a website where you can track your order.  When your order/materials arrive at the local freight terminal, a freight company representative will contact you to schedule a day and time of delivery. You can also contact the freight carrier to arrange a delivery (use the carrier name and your tracking number we provided you in our shipping confirmation).

All residential delivery orders are curbside delivery. You will be contacted by the freight company via the phone number you provided to us to set up a delivery time. Drivers are unable to enter your home and are not responsible for moving the materials inside the home. Shipping of orders containing 5 boxes and more will be scheduled with a lift gate service. Each box weights approximately 35 lbs, so be prepared and arrange for some help if necessary. Someone must be there to accept the delivery. Whoever accepts the delivery must check the outside of the cartons for proper quantity/damage before signing documents.

We can also ship to a location in a non-residential area (home businesses do not qualify). There must be a shipping dock or forklift on the property. Furthermore, the business must be open until 5p.m. local time. There is no prior delivery notification for commercial deliveries.
