Teak Furniture Shipping Information
SHIPPING is through common carrier for larger items and orders. For smaller items we use UPS. Shipping rates are for the continental United States only. Please call us for overseas shipments, Hawaii, Puerto Rico, Alaska and Canada.
Shipping of larger items and orders is done on pallets through freight carriers. Delivery is “curbside”. If the driveway is paved, has no obstacles, and is not too long or steep, carrier will attempt to deliver the item to the garage (using the carriers pallet jack). If the driveway is not paved, too steep, or has other complications, please call us and we can investigate how the delivery could be arranged. There will be an extra charge for any type of delivery (like threshold, indoor, white glove) other than simple “curbside” delivery.
For UPS shipments, UPS will place where they normally place UPS products to you.
All items are shipped FOB Lawrence, Massachusetts.
