Your shipping cost will be calculated in your cart at checkout. You can also call one of our Sales Representatives and they can provide a custom shipping quote for you - 800-891-2623.
Do you have expedited shipping?
We do offer a $25 same day processing fee and a $125 expediting fee. The expediting fee guarantees your material will leave the warehouse location within 2 business days. Not all products are eligible for our expediting
service, so please contact one of our Sales Representatives if you are interested in this service - 800-891-2623.
Are there any additional charges?
There are rare circumstances where additional charges are necessary. The most common charges occur when ordering from multiple manufacturers, shipping to locations outside of the contiguous US, or locations that
are deemed "metropolitan" by our carriers. You can read the full list of possible charges below. If you have questions, please contact one of our Sales Representative for an exact shipping estimate - 800-891-2623.

Yes. You must be present at the time of delivery to inspect the material and sign for the shipment. However, if your order is shipping Ground Service you will not have to be present for delivery.
How should I prepare for a delivery?
Freight shipments are curbside deliveries so you will need to be prepared to move the material into your home.
What is a curbside delivery?
When a palletized shipment is delivered it will be unload at the street. For liability reasons, this is standard practice by all carriers. It will be your responsibility to move the material into the home.
Many customers have their contractors help facilitate moving the material.
What should I do if a shipment is delayed?
In this unfortunate circumstance we encourage you to contact our Logistics Department directly to see if they can help expedite your order - 800-891-2623. The carrier does have a “reasonable dispatch window” to
deliver material, so we do not have legal right to file a claim for lost time, however, we will do anything we can to help.
How should I inspect my shipment?
- Make sure the pallet is intact.
- Cut the shrink wrap and visually inspect the cartons.
- Verify that you have received the correct material and quantity.
- If you find any damage, missing material, or incorrect quantities please note them in detail on the receipt with the driver. Do not refuse the material and contact us immediately with details of the
shipment so we can resolve the the issues.
What should I do if I have damage?
If you have damage, missing material, or incorrect quantities, please note them in detail on the receipt with the driver. Do not refuse the material. Accept the material and move it to a safe location. Contact
us with details of the shipment and we will take the appropriate steps to resolve the the issue as quickly as possible.
How can I track my order?
Once you place an order, you will receive 3 emails from us with detailed order information.

- An Estimated Shipment Date. You will receive this email 1-2 days after your order is placed.
- A Tracking Number and the Carrier Information with an Estimated Arrival Date. You will receive this information the day after your order ships.
How will I be notified with delivery information?
We will notify you through email with the Tracking Number, Carrier Information, and the Estimated Arrival Date. We recommend that you contact the Carrier directly to set up a delivery appointment when we
provide the shipping information to you. If you do not call ahead of time, a Clerk with the Carrier will contact you once your material arrives at the local dispatch terminal to set up a delivery time.
If your material is shipping via Ground Service, we will provide the same information through email. You will not have to be present for delivery and the package will be left at your door. You will only
need to contact us or the carrier if it is an issue to leave the package at your door.
Do you provide tracking for sample orders?
We are able to provide tracking information for most sample orders. Since we work with our Manufactures to get samples to you as quickly as possible, sometimes the tracking information is not provided to us
until you have already received your samples.

let me know

problem with a shipment, please accept the delivery and contact us for instructions on how to proceed.
What should I do if I have damage on a freight shipment?
If you find damage, missing material, or incorrect quantities please do not refuse the shipment. Accept the shipment and note the issues in detail on the receipt with the driver. Contact our Claims Specialist

will have different policies on what will be done with the material. Your acceptance of the delivery is vital in our ability to reship new material at no charge to you.
What should I do if I have damage on a ground shipment?
If you find damage with your ground shipment please call us with details of the damage within 5 days. Please handle the items as little as possible and leave the material in their original boxes. We will work
