Shipping

Please note that manufacturers may vary in their shipping and return policies. Below are general outlines for the most common transactions.

Shipping

If your order is in stock and we process the charges to your credit card, it will ship within five business days from the date of your order.  We will send you tracking information within 24 hours of your order leaving the warehouse to the e-mail address you provided when checking out.  If you do not receive tracking information from us within six business days of your order, feel free to follow up with us at wecare@homefiredesigns.com

 

FedEx / UPS - Small Parcel Shipping (Free)* - Most products shipping via FedEx or UPS will be shipped the same day payment has cleared. Orders not shipped the same day will be shipped the next business day. Most delivery times in the continental U.S. range between 2-5 days depending on location. You will receive an email confirmation with a tracking number when the order has been shipped.

All Freight Deliveries

  • Home will need to be accessible to a full size semi-truck;
  • Most delivery times within the Continental U.S. range from 5-7 business days after shipping
  • You will be contacted by a representative to schedule a delivery date;
  • Tracking numbers will be provided when product has been shipped;
  • A signature will be required upon receipt.

Threshold Home Delivery  - This shipping option includes delivery to the first accessible area (garage, carport, front step, back patio, etc.). Delivery equipment includes a lift gate equipped truck, pallet jack, and hand truck. Because of the lift gate restrictions on straight trucks, the weight of each pallet cannot exceed 1,500 pounds. This option does not include uncrating, unpacking, de-skidding, placement, debris removal, or set-up. See "White Glove Delivery" for this service.

White Glove Home Delivery -(Coming Soon) This is our premier level shipping option. It includes delivery, unpacking, light assembly (no tools), final placement, and debris removal to an off-site receptacle. A two person team will deliver to your room of choice, up to two flights of stairs and a signature will be required upon completion and inspection to ensure your 100% satisfaction. We offer professional assembly and installation on many items, please call for details. 

* Certain rural areas (very few) are not eligible for free shipping and would require additional charges. You will be contacted prior to shipment if such a case were to occur. We do not ship outside of the Continental United States and Canada.

NOTE - If a confirmed delivery appointment is canceled by the customer on the day of delivery or if the customer is not home to receive the delivery, any incurred fee by the carrier to re-schedule and re-deliver will be the responsibility of  the customer.

Order Processing Details

We value your business and would like to ensure that your order is filled properly. Please review the list below.

  1. Look over the Invoice we have attached to your email.
  2. Check for errors in your name, address, phone numbers, email address and the items listed in your order. These documents represent our agreement, so please be sure all of the items and quantities are correct.
  3. Homefiredesigns.com will not ship partial freight orders without additional shipping charges paid prior to shipping. All items must be present at the warehouse prior to shipping a freight order. This means your order may not ship until all the pieces have arrived at our warehouse.
  4. Freight orders that include "Free Shipping" will be delivered curbside to your home. You will be responsible for moving the product, assembly and disposing of the packaging materials. "Threshold" or "White Glove Service" is available to further assist you in settling your new Home Fire Designs product into your home.
  5. Incoming products or Special Orders - These "Lead Times" are approximate estimates and cannot be 100% guaranteed. Home Fire Designs will not be held responsible for late shipments. If you need something by a certain date, please contact your sales representative to discuss changing your order to one of our many in-stock products.
  6. All special order items are non-returnable and non-refundable.
  7. IMPORTANT: Upon delivery, if the boxes look damaged contact us. DO NOT SIGN FOR DAMAGED PRODUCT. If the boxes appear to be in good condition at delivery, we still recommend opening the boxes to inspect the products because sometimes concealed damage can occur. Home Fire Designs will provide you with a free replacement for a item damaged in shipping, but two things must occur:
    1.  You must refuse the damaged item
    2.  You are responsible for notating on the delivery receipt, "refused Fire Pit because of shipping damage".
    If you have the ability to document the damage with digital photos, please send this to your Home Fire Designs Customer Service Representative to speed up the replacement process. FamilyLeisure.com files all warranty and freight damage paperwork for our customers. Your replacement product will ship once it is received in our warehouse if necessary. 

Cancellations & Refunds

All orders cancelled after 48 hours are subject to a $35 administration fee, whether or not your order has shipped.  If your order has shipped, you (the buyer) will also be responsible for actual return shipping charges. Refunds will only be issued to the original credit card that you use when placing your order.

___________________________

Please note that we are currently unable to ship freight to PO Boxes or Military (APO/FPO) addresses.  We must have a residential or commercial physical address in order to ship these items.  If a non-physical address is entered, fees may apply for reshipment.  We apologize for any inconvenience.

_______________________
"Ships-Within Time" is the time needed to receive, process and ship your order after the order is placed and payment information is secured.  To estimate the arrival of your package please consider the ships-within time plus the transit time associated with the method of shipment you selected. Ships-within time may vary on each individual item and is not a guarantee.

As a general rule, Standard Ground Shipping takes between 5-7 business days to arrive after the Ships-Within Time.  It is not uncommon for you to receive each item separately as items often ship from different warehouses.

Please Note: Items will not be delivered on holidays. Expediting shipping only affects the time in transit and not the ships-within time.  If you have any questions concerning expedited shipping, please contact us.
