Shipping Related Questions

Q:

How do you ship the material?

A:

Most orders will generally ship with common carriers. Materials will come to you on a pallet. This will ensure the lowest cost of shipping possible. You have to make sure that a tractor trailer can access your requested shipping address and preferably you should have a forklift available, it will make offloading the materials much easier.

Q:

How much should I add for the shipping cost?

A:

Shipping cost depends on the distance and the area (ZIP Code). Therefore, it could vary from cart to cart. You may contact a common carrier or call us at (240) 876-6203 for an estimated shipping cost.

Pick Up

Q:

What kind of a car do I need for pick up?

A:

We recommend a Van or a large car. Pickup trucks will be OK in good weather. Be sure the car is big enough for the size of the order. Your car must be big enough to fit the side panels.

Q:

Are the materials in boxes or packed in some way?

A:

No, nothing will be in boxes or packed except for hardware. This would make it easier to load and will greatly reduce the cost. However, we will provide you with enough cardboard to put in between the parts.

Technical Questions

Q:

Can I use Wall Mounted Units to design my Pantry or Library Book Case?

A:

We do not recommend Wall Mounted Units in Pantries, Library Book Cases, and Garage Shelving Units due to the excessive amount of weight that can be put on the shelves. Also, Wall Mounted Units must not be used on plaster walls and walls with metal studs.
