Valid Ship Address and Phone Number:
Please make sure the phone number and shipping address are correct for your order in order to avoid delays in processing, delivering, or undeliverable fees.
We use UPS, USPS, or FedEx for smaller items, and larger items go freight. We reserve the right to choose which freightway carries your shipment. We do not, however, control the shipping companies. Once a shipment is in the hands of the delivery company, we cannot change shipping addresses, we cannot make a delivery happen on a certain day, and we can only approximate delivery times as we only have the information the delivery company makes available to us. All shipments, unless specifically denoted, are curb-side shipments.
When you buy an item such as a grill, it ships freight. In order for the freight company to deliver your items they will need a valid phone number to call and schedule a delivery appointment with you. Please allow 5-7 business days for a call from the freight carrier to schedule a delivery appointment.
All larger shipments, shipped via freight carrier, will require a signature at the time of delivery. If you authorize the shipping company to leave the delivery without a signature, Best of Backyard cannot be held responsible for damages that may occur during delivery.
How should you prepare to receive freight items?
When the driver arrives, it is within the consignee’s right to not let the driver leave until the item’s outer and inner packaging have been inspected for any damages.
