When your order ships, we will notify you via email. Included in your email will be a tracking number for your shipment. We encourage you to track your package online or on the phone with the carrier. Most companies can provide an estimated delivery date. Be sure to contact us if anything seems unusual with the progress of the shipment.
Small Parcel - We will ship smaller, lighter items via UPS, FEDEX, or US Postal Service. Depending on how close you are to the shipping warehouse, your item will arrive between 1 and 6 business days (1 to 10 business days for USPS) after it leaves the warehouse.
We do not require an adult signature for deliveries, but please note that the decision to leave your package without a signature is at the discretion of the delivery person. If you want an item left at your doorstep, the best thing to do is leave a note on your door asking the driver to leave your package with "No Signature Required." Be sure to include your name and tracking number on the note.
Dock-to-Dock Truck Delivery - Many items on our website are too large or heavy to ship via UPS/FedEx, so they are shipped via Dock-to-Dock Truck Delivery. Dock-to-Dock Truck Delivery is different than standard UPS, FedEx, or US Postal. For residential deliveries as soon as your shipment arrives at the local terminal, the trucking company will call you to set up a 2- to 4-hour appointment for delivery. Most truck delivery companies offer appointment windows between 8:00 A.M. and 5:00 P.M., Monday through Friday.
A Dock-to-Dock delivery means your items will be delivered to the driveway or curb outside of your address. It's "Dock-to-Dock" because you'll need to move the package off of the truck yourself. You may want an additional person on hand for help.
Unless you have specifically contracted for a Lift Gate and / or Inside Delivery, the truck driver is only responsible for moving your merchandise to the tailgate (the end) of their truck. They are not responsible for unloading your merchandise. Many drivers will gladly help you unload your freight, and some may even help you get the items inside, but they are not obligated to. There is an extra charge for a Lift Gate and/or Inside Delivery. You may be able to contract these services at the time of delivery, however these extra services will be billed to you.
Lift Gate - For an additional $75, the truck driver will use a machine called a lift gate to bring the items to the ground for you.
Lift Gate & Inside Delivery - The merchandise will be brought right inside the front door for a lobby delivery. Stairs and Installation are NOT INCLUDED. Pricing varies, please call for more details.
White Glove Delivery: Assembly and Installation - This special shipping service is available on select products. Products with this service available will have a special note on the product page. Prices vary depending on the product.
