Shipping and delivery

Our items ship on a 'Freight Prepaid' basis from the originating shipping point, and we utilize a range of Common Carriers, LTL Freight, and Full Truckload Freight Carriers.

Our logistics department specializes in finding the most competent service at the lowest cost shipping rates on a daily basis, allowing us to offer our customers the best service available on every level.

Shipping costs are calculated on a per product basis that is determined by weight, dimensions, and receiving location. Your credit card will not be charged until shipping costs have been determined and approved by you.

Orders are shipped by a carrier selected by Gothic Arch Greenhouses, either by single delivery or in multiple deliveries. We strive to consolidate multi-component orders into as few shipments, carriers, and receiving days as possible.

Gothic Arch Greenhouses will provide an estimated date for delivery; however, we are not able to guarantee delivery dates.

The customer is responsible for unloading and safely storing all deliveries. For large or oversized shipments, offloading service is available to most addresses at an additional cost. Please contact us for details.

Please inspect deliveries carefully upon receipt for possible damage or shortages. Freight claims are to be made as quickly as possible, and visible shipping damage must be noted at time of delivery.

Please check our Oversized Shipment Delivery Policy for further information on oversized freight delivery. Full shipping and delivery information will be emailed at the time of your order.
