We have done our best to get and keep freight, shipping, and packing costs as low as we can. We don’t
want your custom furniture to arrive damaged and we don’t want shipping or freight costs to keep you
from having the special piece of custom furniture that you want.
To receive a freight or shipping estimate
You may call us or use the link next to a ready made product to go to the quick shipping quote request
form. Custom furniture order customers are given a freight/shipping estimate at the same time as the
custom furniture estimate.
To help keep costs down we have done several things.
We have set contracts with several companies in order to get better rates.
We pack and crate each piece of furniture ourselves. We recycle packing material and hope that you will
recycle yours when you receive your custom furniture. We only use recycled packing material if it meets
our standards and meets the freight companies packing requirements.
Small items and some small cedar chests are safe to ship by UPS Ground. Larger pieces are shipped LTL
Freight estimates based on standard ground, residential, curbside delivery. If you need inside delivery or
lift gate please let us know. Inside delivery requires lift gate service. Each company has their own fee for
each of these services.
Your final freight charge is on the actual shipping weight, not the highest estimated weight. We know
from previous shipments what the weight range will most likely be and we estimate accordingly, your final
cost may be lower than the estimate. Fuel surcharges fluctuate and this may raise or lower your
estimate a few dollars.
Lowering freight costs
One way to lower freight costs is to pick your furniture up at the shipping company’s service center,
instead of having residential delivery. If you have a commercial address that you can ship to, this is also
less than residential delivery.
Customers that are close enough and want to make the scenic drive are more than welcome to pick up
their handcrafted furniture here at The Saw Barn Wood Shop; and many do. We always enjoy meeting
Shipping Outdoor Furniture
Outdoor wood furniture ships at a higher class than our other custom furniture and therefore the cost is
quite high for small orders. If freight cost is not a concern, our outdoor furniture can be shipped LTL
freight. However, I am not able to provide an accurate estimate for shipping outdoor patio furniture.
