How much is delivery?

Hi, my name is Skylar and I’ll be happy to help here.

There are several contributing factors that attribute to how much delivery cost will be.

Things like:

  • Delivery Type – Residential Delivery | Commercial Delivery
  • Distance – How much fuel will it take to get there
  • Offloading, Truck type, Labor
  • Inside Delivery, Sort & Segregate, Appointments
  • Weight
  • Volume
  • Capacity

These are most of the parameters that will determine how much something will cost to ship to you. Most of our mosaics are able to ship via UPS and they offer several service options like Ground (3-5 Days), 3-Day Select (3 Days), 2-Day (2-Day Air), and Next Day Air (Delivered on the following business day). UPS does not deliver regular packages on Saturdays. However, they do have Saturday Delivery for an additional fee and it is a special request.

Sadly due to weight, UPS is not able to offer Ground solutions on every shipment and in these cases, we have partnered with 50+ national couriers who can deliver shipments via LTL (Less Than Truck-Load).

Okay, I have another question. What if I live close, but I have a car and I know my car won’t be able to handle the weight of my order.
No problem. we have local partners with smaller trucks equipped with lift gates who can serve you. Please shoot us an email with the same information as above and we will ask our local partners for a rate on your delivery and we will respond back with their offer.

Okay, Skylar, Thank you for covering the residential side of delivery, but I’m a commercial buyer and I have a dock and forklift. What’s the scenario for me?
Great question, and it’s similar to residential delivery rates, but we will discount that rate for you since it is a no-touch delivery. Shoot us an email and include dock to dock and we will respond with your discounted delivery rate and the total order cost.

Thank you for checking us out again. Come back soon and we will see you next time.
