Most small accessories will ship via FedEx; however, many of the products available on this website are delivered via a freight carrier (swing sets, playhouses, some playset add-ons). When the shipment arrives at the freight terminal near your location, you will be contacted by the carrier to arrange a delivery appointment. While the carrier may allow some flexibility in appointment times, lengthy delays in appointments may result in storage fees. Backyard Builds, and any of its manufacturers, are not responsible for such fees.
The carrier will deliver and unload as close to your property line (curbside) as is accessible by the delivery vehicle. This service does not include set up or assembly of items or removal of packaging materials. Additional shipping charges may apply for remote areas or extraordinary delivery requirements including, but not limited to, low power lines, narrow lanes, tractor trailer restrictions, etc. The customer will be responsible for the contents after the delivery. Freight services are prepaid, and no additional charges should be presented to you at the time of delivery. However, you may request additional services of the carrier (yard delivery, garage delivery, or address change) when the carrier contacts you for a delivery appointment. These services may involve additional charges, and are not the responsibility of Backyard Builds or any of its manufacturers.
Merchandise is shipped F.O.B. shipping point. It is very important that you thoroughly inspect the merchandise for any damages that may have occurred during transport. ANY damages that are discovered must be notated on the bill of lading/delivery receipt that you sign. Have the driver initial any damage report and be sure to obtain a copy of this delivery document. Failure to document any transportation related damage may result in delays or even the inability for us to send you replacement parts.
For All Delivery Types
Backyard Builds and our manufacturers are not responsible for deliveries that are misdirected due to an incorrect shipping address, including any fees incurred from misdirected deliveries. If a shipment cannot be delivered successfully as a result of invalid shipping address, or if no one is available to accept/sign for the delivery after an extended period of time, the carrier may need to return the shipment to our warehouse. If this should occur, after a reasonable attempt has been made to make these arrangements with the recipient, a refund for the purchase will be provided, minus any shipping fees incurred by Backyard Builds.
While Backyard Builds works closely with its manufacturers and carriers to assure timely shipment of your order, delivery times are NOT guaranteed, and various factors can impact the carrier's ability to deliver within the expected time frame. These factors include:
- Your location in relation to the manufacturer's warehouse;
- The carrier's equipment;
- Other unforeseen events that may delay shipping times
