You have no items in your shopping cart.
In most cases, though not always, you will be contacted by the freight company when your order is ready to be delivered, at that time you can choose your specified delivery date and time frame. There is generally a delivery window provided (the length of which varies by carrier). You are also free to contact your carrier before they call you, use the details provided on your tracking link, that may slightly expedite your delivery.
We strongly urge you to make sure, prior to ordering, that there is a clear path from the driveway to your desired destination, and that the necessary clearance through gates or under overhangs is present for the item. All our products have line drawings on their product page giving exact dimensions. Packaging adds to that but can always be removed to fit through a gate when needed.
We book all freight deliveries with lift gates to easily lower the item from the truck to the ground. In rare instances for excessively heavy items over 85 inches the lift gate may not suffice and alternative methods may be required (See: Customer Responsibility below.) In most cases the freight team will unload the item at the end of your driveway. It will be up to you to move it from there to its desired destination and unpack it. Delivery does not include unpackaging and the item will be left on its pallet for your movers to get it to its final destination with ease. We do encourage you to unwrap the item when you receive it to inspect for potentially concealed damage. We strongly encourage you to inspect all deliveries before signing for them and, if you discover damage, to notate this on the document when you sign for the delivery. IMPORTANT: Our Backyard Sprawl Damage Policy requires that all issues be reported to us within 5 calendar days of delivery to be eligible for coverage.
After the item is successfully delivered by our freight company it will be the customer's responsibility to make arrangements for moving the item to its final destination in your yard. That said we are happy to support you in this process so you can feel free to call us with questions regarding who to hire, what to tell them, etc. (We generally recommend a local moving company, sometimes piano movers, safe movers or handymen/contractors can also do the trick!) We have found that the average cost for local moving companies to relocate bulky items from the driveway to the backyard averages between $400-$600, though there are always companies out there that will quote higher, in most cases this is a reasonable expectation for cost.
In some instance specialty equipment MAY be needed to unload the item from the delivery truck, in which case the freight company would contact you before delivery and let you know what's needed. This is rare but in some instances items which measure longer than 85 inches in length and are excessively heavy may require a forklift to remove from the truck as they are too large for the lift gate. In some instances specialty equipment MAY be needed specific to your requested placement (ie: forklift, power jack, etc.) which would also fall under customer responsibility. We are always here to help, but Backyard Sprawl is not responsible for any complications in final placement of the item after it is delivered. If you are uncertain what is needed to move the item from the delivery spot (generally the driveway) to your backyard, we suggest consulting with a contractor.
If you have any questions at all please don't hesitate to call our customer support number (855-815-1344) or email our support team (firstname.lastname@example.org) as we want to set you up for a successful and easy delivery!
Freight is the transport and delivery of items on pallets by semi truck. The process of receiving freight is not quite what most consumers have come to expect from the click and receive ease of Amazon Prime, but until we can convince the mailman to put a BBQ Island in their satchel, freight is the easiest and most trusted way to get the larger items we sell to our valued customers!
With the changing landscape of commerce shifting to more purchases being made online and shipping direct to consumer, there are more and more large and weighty items being delivered via the growing industry niche of consumer freight.
All that said, we recognize that for most people receiving a freight delivery is unfamiliar terrain, so we thought we’d help walk you through it. We want to make the whole process of purchasing from Backyard Sprawl as easy and simple as possible. So here's our guide.
The freight company should call you to schedule a day and time window for delivery, it’s important than someone is at the residence to receive, inspect, and sign for the item.
It’s the customer’s responsibility to inspect the item thoroughly.
Once you sign for the product, you are responsible for it, so inspect it carefully! Do not sign until the item has been fully inspected.
