Terms and Conditions For Shipping and Delivery Services
Kaplan Flooring DOES NOT deliver product, rather we sub‐contract delivery to a third‐party company and acts as the middle‐man between the customer and the delivery company. Kaplan Flooring does this as a convenience to the customer and therefore isn’t responsible for delays or complaints pertaining to delivery of any product. Please note that No Appointments OR Time of Delivery provided for delivery services as arrival depends on many factors that are out of control of the delivery company such as traffic jams, numbers of companies picking up material prior to us, numbers of staff at manufacturers’ warehouse, etc.
Third‐party Delivery Company offers two different services: Curb-side Delivery (Without-Off-Loading) and Delivery-With-Offloading.
- Curb-Side Delivery (Without Off‐Loading) means the product will be dropped off at curb-side, driveway or garage (if no obstruction to wheel passage). Neither Kaplan Flooring nor the delivery company will be responsible for damages that occur after curb-side delivery. Curb-side delivery is the default delivery service for all delivery services mentioned in our website.
- Delivery With Offloading means product will be brought in to only the main floor of the house (No basement, no second-floor, no side-entrance or any other entrance other than front door). Additional charges apply for Delivery With Offloading. Please contact us for a custom quote.
