Shipping & Delivery
We will ship your order by the most practical and economical way available to us, unless you provide specific alternative instructions with your order.

Most Pilot Rock Park Products must ship by commercial truck freight. A few items when ordered individually can ship by United Parcel Service or FedEx Ground/Home. However, on quantity orders, truck freight is usually more economical. Customer Service can inform you of freight costs and which type of carrier will be used. NOTE: freight quotes are valid for only (30) days from the quotation date. After (30) days it will be necessary to confirm/requote the freight cost.

When your order is shipped by commercial truck freight, we must have a "ship to" address which can accept and unload palletized or packaged freight. The truck driver is not required to off load your freight, so you must provide other means or personnel. Truck freight delivery to residential addresses is often not available, and it is always more expensive. Therefore, we recommend shipping to a business address or to a local freight terminal.

NOTE: If you require additional freight services, such as pre-notification, limited access/residential delivery, lift gate, or inside delivery, there will be EXTRA CHARGES if these services are available at your destination. You must contact our Customer Service Dept. for information on the costs and availability of these additional services. Some shipments may also be subject to oversize shipment, re-consignment and metro delivery fees. In all cases, freight truck,UPS or FedEx, we must have a physical street address to successfully ship your product. 

Delivery, after receiving your order (ARO), can vary with the order size and with the season of the year. Our GSA Price Schedules (for federal buyers only) obligate us to ship within certain time frames. Much of the year we will ship your order within 30 days ARO (possibly less on some products). However, during the very busy spring and summer seasons, our lead times can extend to 45 days, and sometimes 60 days ARO. Please keep these lead times in mind when scheduling your order. Customer Service can advise you about the current lead times. Remember, you must add freight carrier in-transit time to our lead times to calculate the anticipated delivery date.

ORDER CANCELLATION: Orders for standard production items may be cancelled prior to shipment. Conditions will vary. Orders cancelled after shipment are subject to return freight charges and a restocking fee, both paid by the customer.

CUSTOMIZED ORDERS: Any product that includes custom features or modifications (from our standard production designs) cannot be returned for refund or credit. Any order that includes custom signage (in any form) cannot be cancelled after we receive your final design approval.  Products that include custom signage cannot be returned for refund or credit. All sales are final for customized products.
