Our Out-of-State Garage Kit Quotes INCLUDE DELIVERY!
We are one of the largest suppliers of steel building kits in the country and we’re one of the pioneers in bringing this service onto the Internet. We know how to ship and have many resources in which to use to save you money!
Most of our Arizona customers who are not getting a professional installation (delivery is usually included w/ an installation) pick up their building kit at our yard. A 14 or 16 foot long flatbed trailer will usually work fine for the frame system and the panels. However, it’s always a good idea to call us and check to see what size trailer to bring. Mott’s Rentals on Broadway Road in Mesa has great 20’ flatbed trailer which they rent very reasonably (around $60 per day).
If you want delivery of the frame and trim package, we have a local company that delivers throughout the State. Please call for pricing.
Out of Arizona Delivery
Frame System: If you reside outside of Arizona, your steel garage frame package is shipped to you directly from us; we’re not a website ordering from a factory with no control. All our frame prices include shipping to the freight terminal nearest to your zip code or for an extra $85 the frame system can be delivered to your jobsite on a truck that has a lift gate.
If you are going to accept delivery at the terminal, you’ll find our frame systems are compactly packed and you’ll only need a pickup truck for smaller buildings or for other sizes, you’ll need a flatbed trailer. The freight terminal has a forklift on site so loading it up is pretty easy.
Panels & Trim: Your panels will come directly from the panel manufacturer so you will have two shipments: the frame and panel package. Panel delivery is not available at your nearest freight terminal and there’s a $65 charge for jobsite delivery of the panel package. For jobsite delivery, you will need a lifting device (forklift or tractor with a front bucket that you can use wide nylon ratchet strapping to create a cradle to lift the panel package off the truck with). If you need to rent a forklift, we can usually tell you within a three day time span when the panels will be delivered and then the driver will call you approximately 24 hours prior to arriving. In some areas of the country, boom lifts on the trucks are available and there’s a charge for this but be sure to check with us for availability of this service.
Bear in mind, the panel delivery truck is a full sized semi w/ a flatbed trailer. It is 72 feet long bumper to bumper. No deliveries will take place on dirt roads and there must be adequate room for that sized rig to maneuver. Narrow residential streets may disqualify you from receiving the panels at your jobsite. If all else fails, another option for the panels and trim is that we can locate a local supplier who can deliver to you at your location. We’ve been at this for years and have never failed to locate the nearest supplier to a customer! In such event, we will supply you with a complete “panel take-off” including all trim and screws and while we will do our best to shop pricing for you, we can not guarantee that their pricing will be the same as what’s listed on our website so if going this route, it’s a good idea to take the sources we provide you with and give them a call.
Carriers/Claims: For years we have shipped our frame systems out of Arizona, either with our own trucks or via Saia Freight and/or FedEx Freight. (This is not the overnight letter carrier; this is a freight company). Your frame system will arrive in truck/trailer that is at minimum, 28 feet long. Please don’t neglect to disclose driveways on steep grades etc. to us when ordering—this can really foul you up! If you’re at the point of ordering you already know we practice full disclosure—we expect the same of you. Such situations require a local freight terminal pickup only.
In the unlikely event anything arrives damaged, please note it on the freight carrier’s paperwork when you take delivery. Be sure to take a picture of the damage and mail or e-mail the pictures to us immediately. In addition we need you to fax a copy of the freight bill that has your notations on it.
As long as you follow those simple procedures, we will get your replacement parts out to you ASAP and we will take of any claims (arguing and waiting for money) with the carrier.
