Shipping and Delivery

It is our goal to make sure all customers have a great experience ordering from our company.  We use various truck companies that specialize in handling and shipping our products. You can count on us to always choose the most reliable and cost-effective carrier to transport your order.  If you are unfamiliar with motor carrier freight companies and how LTL (less-than-truckload) shipments are handled, please read below or contact us so we can help make the process smooth and easy for you.

Important Delivery Information for Vinyl Fencing

Your order will ship direct to your home or business. Each order will be strapped to a wooden pallet for ease of transport. 

  • -   Your order will leave one of our facilities within approximately 5-10 business days from the time the order is placed.  After the order leaves our facility the trucking company is responsible for delivering your order in good condition.  If damage occurs during delivery, we will do our best to assist in processing a claim with the carrier.
  • -   Once your order is shipped you will receive a confirmation email as well as the tracking information of your order.  The shipping company will contact you 1-2 business days prior
  • -   Weekends are excluded from delivery estimates.  All orders placed after 2pm Eastern Time are considered to have been placed the next business day.
  • -   You are responsible for offloading the equipment from the delivery truck.  The pallets are made to be broken down so you can unload by hand or you can use your own forklift.  The shipping company will not assist in offloading the materials.  If unloading by hand, we recommend having a few people to help especially on larger orders. 
  • -   When receiving the material, it is the customers responsibility to verify that the quantities and condition are acceptable.  Any shortages or damage must be noted on the carrier’s paperwork at the time of delivery.  Damages and shortages are rare but do occur and must be noted in order to place a claim with the carrier.
  • -   If additional services such as re-delivery or storage fees are incurred at the request or cause of the customer, the customer must contract with the carrier and pay the carrier directly for those delivery services. 
  • -   The customer is responsible for any damage caused during unloading.  Per DOT guidelines the shipper is not responsible for damage after the truck arrives at the customers property.

Small Packages (example: caps or gate hinges) are delivered UPS, FedEx, U.S. Mail, or Airborne Express, at our discretion, unless you request otherwise. Packages that are too large for these carriers must be shipped by other carriers. Accessories normally ship within 1-2 business days from the time they are ordered.   

Shipping Expense Disclaimer

We believe in providing the cost of materials and shipping up front in a quote form so that you can be sure there are no hidden costs or fees. All orders are subject to confirmation. Additional shipping expenses, although rare, may apply due to weight, size, location, and/or other variables. Should your order require additional funds to cover the transportation of goods, you will be contacted for approval. IN MOST CASES ALL ORDERS OVER $2500.00 WILL HAVE NO FREIGHT CHARGES TO THE CUSTOMER.

Damaged or Missing Parts

Although shipping damage is very rare it could still happen. Here are a few easy steps to insure that you are receiving your materials in good condition:

  1. Inspect the product packages before they are removed from the truck. Look for tearing or puncturing of the packages. Look for any denting or crushing of packaging.
  2. Make sure of the number of packages or pallets is consistent with your bill of lading & packaging list.
  3. Remove materials from vehicle. You have now taken responsibility of your materials.
  4. Note on the motor freight carrier's paperwork any damages observed. If package has signs of rips, tears, or breakage to the wrapping, packages, or pallets customer must write on bill of lading "Subject to Inspection" when signing for material. Record notes on the driver's copy and your copy. Have driver and recipient sign each copy.
  5. Unpack all materials and review with packaging list.
  6. Email or call BuyDirectVinylFence.com immediately with any concerns about your order or damage report so we can assist with getting replacement parts or any claims that need to be filed. 

Damaged or missing parts discovered after delivery must be reported directly to the delivery carrier immediately. The carrier will want to inspect packages, goods, and all shipping containers before a claim can be made. After inspection a claim must be filed, which includes the following documents:

*Original bill of lading

*Copy of paid freight bill

* Repair or replacement invoice * Inspection report * Packing list

Make all claims promptly. Do not deduct losses from your BuyDirectVinylFence.com invoice while waiting adjustment of the claim, as we cannot be responsible for safe delivery. Shortages and damages must be reported to us within 5 days of delivery. After 5 days, we assume all goods have been delivered in full and in good condition. Replacement of missing or damaged items will be charged at time of order to your account and any claim or damages will be paid directly to you by the shipping company.

Defective or Incorrect Order Policy

All returned items must be authorized by BuyDirectVinylFence.com prior to returning.

Call 480-813-5655 before returning any item and you will receive a Return Materials Authorization (RMA). The return shipping address will be noted on the RMA.

If a customer is shipped defective or incorrect material, we will do our best to expedite the shipment of replacement material or facilitate a refund at the discretion of BuyDirectVinylFence.com (hereafter “BDVF”).  Please follow the following procedure for returns, defective or incorrect material, or shortages.
