At Hank's Carpet, our shipping department exercises great care in preparing your flooring for shipping. Each roll is individually wrapped and sealed in strong weather tight polyurethane film to assure added protection during transportation.
When it comes to shipping your flooring, common carrier is the most economical way. Shipping companies have minimum rates for delivery. If you order one room of flooring, expect the freight to be $200 or more depending on location. If you order a whole house of flooring, expect the freight to be not much above the minimum freight charge. It's best to order large amounts of flooring (several rooms) to maximize the savings. We will always contact you with freight charges prior to shipping. However; we have tried to give you an approximate rate for delivery charges.
The graph above estimates typical shipping days required to receive your flooring if you live in a metropolitan area. Deliveries to residences may take longer. We ship by square yard rates vs. poundage rates, thus ensuring the best volume rates which is then passed onto you for a savings of up to 50%! For all orders shipped outside the state of Georgia, there is no sales tax charged to your order which will greatly offset the shipping charges incurred.
Once your order arrives in your area, the carrier will give you a 24 to 48 hour advanced call to schedule your delivery. All freight companies do not touch the freight. They are in an 18 wheeler and they will let you unload at the end of your driveway. The truck driver will not help you. Generally, you will need someone to help receive your order and remove it from the delivery truck. Remember, you are responsible for unloading home deliveries. All liftgates are per request only. They usually cost $150.00-$225.00. All the liftgate will do is sit the product on the ground at the end of the driveway. Many individuals have their installer pick up their order from the local terminal. This also saves a home delivery charge.
We have many freight carriers from which to choose. Be aware that most freight carriers' rates change daily. However, we assure you that the most economical freight carrier will be utilitized for your delivery. Please contact us for a rate quote.
