How to Estimate Your Delivery Charge

Posted on Mar 9th 2010 by Meredith — Comments ↓

For products or orders not qualifying for Free Shipping, our customers ask us a lot of questions about the cost of shipping their flooring to their house or business.

Two main factors go into the cost of shipping :

1.  The size and weight of the order

2.  Certain locations are more expensive to deliver to than other ones

We have put together a chart that shows you a RANGE ESTIMATE of the shipping charges you can expect to pay on your order.

This estimate is a SQUARE FOOT price.  Take the SQUARE FOOT price and multiply it by the total SQUARE FEET of your order.  That will give you a good estimate of your delivery charges.

You are welcome to call us during normal business hours and we will give you a CONFIRMED SHIPPING QUOTE.

We at Floors To Your Home have secured the best freight rates for flooring from the most trusted and reliable freight carriers in the country.  We work our hardest to make sure our customers pay the lowest delivery charges possible.

Our customers also have the option of picking up their flooring at the freight terminal.  Usually that amounts to a savings of $25.00 to $50.00 on the delivery charges.

Normal Business Hours

Monday – Friday    8:00 AM – 5:00 PM  Eastern Standard Time

Saturday                10:00 AM – 6:00 PM  Eastern Standard Time

These shipping charges are estimates:

20 Cartons and Under:     $.40 sq ft — $.70 sq ft

20 — 35 Cartons:                 $.35 sq ft — $.55 sq ft

36 Cartons and over          $.25 sq ft — $.50 sq ft

We want you to feel free to call us with any questions you may have.  We will give you a confirmed shipping price and you will get an e-mail confirming that shipping price along with the total price of your order.

You won’t have any hidden costs or suprises, just a BEAUTIFUL FLOOR delivered on time at an UNBEATABLE PRICE!

…and, of course, all of this is moot if you qualify for free shipping. Then it’s… well, you know, “Free!”

(though on Free Shipping, any accessories, like installation kits, will result in pro-rated freight charges)
