One of the most common flooring questions we get is how is it shipped? There are typically 2 ways we ship your product to you.
Common Carrier: (Carriers such as Yellow Freight, UPS Freight, etc.)
This method of shipping is usually the most cost-effective. If your order can be loaded on to a Tractor-trailer, or other box type truck, this is the best choice. Depending on where you live, there may be an option for home delivery, however there is an additional cost involved, please call for a quote. If you do opt for home delivery, you will need to have people available to unload your products from the truck. It is a good idea to have several people since most of our products tend to be heavy, and/or bulky. It is also suggested to have a tin snip to cut the banding if your order includes flooring or other lumber, and a dolley if you have one.
Another option would be “hold for pick-up”. This is a good idea if your home, business, or construction site is not easily accessible with a large truck. The carrier will unload your order onto their local dock and notify you when it has arrived. When you go to their terminal, they will load it onto your vehicle using their forklift. We custom build crating specifically for your order. Hold for pick-up shipping is FREE in most cases! Please call to confirm.
If your order includes items that cannot be loaded onto a box type truck, you will need to have your products delivered using a flatbed trailer. These types of trucks are usually operated by private carriers. Another instance where a private carrier would be needed is if you live in a remote area. If no common carriers conduct business regularly in your area, a private carrier would need to be hired. As with the common carriers, if you require home delivery, you will need to have people and tools available to unload your order. Private carriers can sometimes deliver your order to a local shipping dock if at all possible.
