When do we deliver?
We deliver Monday through Friday 7am to 5pm, and till noon on Saturday. We try to accommodate every am delivery or pm delivery request.
Do I need to be home to accept delivery?
No, you can leave written instructions on the front door, and or written notes on the delivery page. Our drivers are instructed to go to the front door in absence of delivery notes.
Can you call before delivery?
Our drivers are instructed to keep in communication, and call with an estimated time of arrival. This is why we ask for a couple of phone numbers.
Will you deliver off the pavement?
This is very risky, and can cause severe damage to your property. If the ground is soft, the truck may get stuck, causing damage to personal property. The sides of an asphalt driveway can be crushed, when leaving the safety of a paved surface. The professional driver may have to make this judgement call at the time of delivery. In general, it is safer for everyone to have the trucks delivering on pavement.
Do you deliver when it rains?
It is almost inevitable that when you are ready for your order, there will be some kind of precipitation event. It never fails. We deliver in the rain. It does not hurt our products, they are stored out side to begin with. Plus, the sooner you have them on site, the quicker you can get started, when Mother Nature finishes.
