Porcelain Tile USA ships its products to customers anywhere in the United States. Stone products are very HEAVY which makes these products more expensive to ship when compared to other items you can purchase online like clothing, electronics, etc. Depending on the size and weight of your order, our integrated technology determines which method of shipment will be used. Items can both be delivered to residential or commercial addresses.
Whoever is accepting the delivery must inspect the material and note any damage on the delivery slip before the driver leaves. You need to make sure that the order is inspected when delivered. If you are not going to be the one accepting the order, you have to make sure that the person signing the order is capable of doing so. You cannot sign the paperwork and let the driver leave until the order has been thoroughly inspected. If there is any damaged material, it must be noted on the paperwork in order for us to issue replacement material to you and for us to be properly reimbursed by the trucking company. If there is any damaged material, we will immediately reship your replacement for this material, as long as it was noted in the paperwork.
Your Delivery Options
- UPS Ground - Recommended for orders less than 20 sft.
Please Note -
1. We do not recommend this type of shipping for tiles 12" and above since they have high chance of breakages, which are not covered under insurance / replacement.
2. These deliveries are made without signature and can be left at your front porch / door etc. If you want a 'Signature Required' Service kindly let us know in advance. This entails additional fees from UPS and they will not deliver until someone is available to sign. Not selecting "Signature Required' in your order authorizes us / our partner carriers to leave the shipment on your front door.
