Packaging & Delivery Of Our Natural Thin Stone Veneers

Packaging

Our stone is packaged on pallets containing 100 square feet of flats or 50 linear feet of corners. This will be adjusted depending on the order but those are the stock pallet amounts. Depending on the stone type the pallets will either be shrink wrapped, crated or covered with wire mesh prior to shipment. The flats pallets weigh approximately 1,500 pounds and the corner pallets weigh approximately 1,000 pounds. The relatively light pallets allow them to be delivered via common carrier and easily mobile on the jobsite.

Delivery

We offer free curbside delivery to all customers in the lower 48 states using a variety of carriers. Our natural thin stone veneers are shipped directly from our quarries on a per pallet basis.  The maximum number of square or linear feet a pallet can hold depends on the product.  It is typically 100 square feet for flats and 50 linear feet for corners.  This less than truckload (LTL) method is very convenient as it is delivered to and unloaded at your home or job site.  After the stone has shipped you will receive a call to set up a convenient delivery time.  If you have unloading capabilities or a large order warranting hiring a full truck please contact us.

The freight company will call you a day ahead of time to make the delivery appointment. The freight company will then unload the pallets off the truck using what is called a liftgate. A liftgate is a hydraulic platform on the back of the truck that the driver will use to lower the pallets to the ground. The pallets will be left at the end of the driveway and ready for your contractor to take over. It is important to inspect the pallets when they arrive on site for any damage.
