Terms & Policies

Shipping Policy

One of the many advantages of choosing Hurst Hardwoods for your hardwood and laminate flooring needs, is our high quality, high speed, low cost shipping services.  From the very beginning, we realized how important shipping services are for internet sales.  We strive to provide fast, quality shipping services that are both hassle free and damage free. In our shipping policy below, we address the issues that are of concern to our many customers.

Where We Deliver

We deliver to ALL 50 UNITED STATES including Hawaii and Alaska, as well as Canada.  Offshore shipping is also available for large orders.  Please call us at 888-704-8778 for consideration of your offshore flooring order.

Delivery Time

Most of our products are stocked at our many distribution centers across the country and these products ship quickly.  Once an order has been placed for an in stock item, Hurst tries to have it on the truck in 1-2 days.  From Hurst’s warehouse the floor may possibly ship that day.  Transit time for in state orders are usually one day and for locations a couple states away, 2 days.  Beyond a few states in distance, usually 3 days is needed and for the west coast 4-6 days.  The sales person can clarify approximate times.  DO NOT SCHEDULE INSTALLERS UNTIL ALL MATERIALS HAVE BEEN DELIVERED AND ARE IN YOUR POSSESSION.  HURST HARDWOODS IS NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR ADDITIONAL CHARGES ASSUMED BY THE CUSTOMER FROM THE CONTRACTOR FOR A DELAY IN A CONTRACTED STARTING TIME.

Shipping Damage

It is our goal to ship and deliver all orders on time and free of any shipping damage. There are some rare circumstances where shipping damage may occur. If this unlikely event happens, please be sure to make note on the driver’s delivery of any damage that you see. For example, “2 Boxes Damaged”. If there is damage but you are unsure the amount, write “Visible Damage”. Count all boxes and items and make note of anything missing. Please take pictures to show the extent of damage that can be emailed. Due to the flexibility of using flooring pieces in certain areas, only damage above 3% of the amount ordered is eligible for replacement. Any material that is damaged on the ends of the boards or moldings are not replaceable as they can still be used for cuts or by the walls.

Orders with shipping damage are not to be refused at delivery and it does not constitute a basis for rejection of the order. A shipping cost has been incurred to ship the floor there and the same likewise if the product is rejected with possible restocking fees. Call your representative at the time of delivery if you need to feel more secure about the situation. If the order is sent back without agreement from Hurst Hardwoods you agree to pay shipping both ways and a possible restocking fee. The whole order is not to be rejected due to part of it being damaged.

Flooring Delivery

With our extensive experience of delivering flooring to hundreds of thousands of customers nationwide it is our goal that your delivery experience is well communicated and goes smoothly. Unless otherwise agreed in writing, all flooring deliveries are delivered curbside. Over 90% of our deliveries do include a liftgate to lower the pallet off the truck. There are some circumstances where liftgate is not able to be utilized or available. For example, if a pallet is too long or too heavy to fit on the liftgate than the individual boxes will need to be hand offloaded from the truck. Also, orders of 15 boxes/bundles or less will not include a liftgate considering they can be hand offloaded easily. Since liftgate service is not guaranteed please have help at time of delivery if you are not capable off offloading boxes by yourself. If you would like to confirm if a liftgate will be able to be used on your delivery please call Hurst Hardwoods to confirm. It is the customers responsibility to move the flooring from curbside into their home or business. After an order ships it is expected that the carrier can efficiently schedule an appointment with customer and proceed with delivery within 3 business days of the shipment arriving at the carriers local facility. If it is by request from a customer that the shipment be held for a future delivery date beyond this time then they would assume the responsibility of paying for any storage charges that are accrued during that time and must be paid to Hurst hardwoods before delivery can take place. Hurst Hardwoods can hold shipments at the warehouse if customer is not ready to receive the order to avoid storage charges after it ships. To obtain a quote on inside delivery for your flooring purchase, simply call our customer care staff at 1-888-704-8778.

Upon arrival, your flooring order should be inspected in two ways. 1) Be sure that the proper number of cartons were delivered as ordered. 2) Be sure to match the model/item number with the model/item number on your invoice from Hurst Hardwoods. If you feel that there is a shortage of flooring, please note on the delivery receipt the number of cartons that are missing and contact Hurst Hardwoods immediately. If there is any damage, please see Shipping Damage section.
