Shipping & Delivery

If you have questions or would like an estimate on shipping time for a custom made product, give us a call.

When receiving a freight shipment, be sure to inspect the product before signing the bill of lading. Once the item is signed for, we are usually not able to process a ship damage claim or accept a return on truck freight once it is accepted by you. If the item is damaged, refuse the shipment and contact us right away for further instructions.
