Shipping Policy

COVID-19 LTL Shipping Updates:

In order to reduce the risk of potential exposure to COVID-19 for both customer and driver, some the Freight terminals are required to ask customers to fill out the "No Signature Required" document. The driver will not be able to secure a signature at the time of the delivery. Only Curbside Delivery will be available at this time.

ALEKO is also not responsible for any "Rapid Return", storage or re-delivery fee in case customers can't accept the freight due to a nonessential business closure, age, or other quarantine restrictions that may be applied to the delivery address.

Due to these facts, ALEKO requires customer to report any damage or shortages to the carrier within 24 hours by phone and/or via email providing carrier with pictures. Once the report is made, customer needs to forward this conversation to [email protected]. Otherwise, ALEKO will not be able to assist customer with damage or lost items in transit.

LTL Shipping - Less Than Truckload Freight Shipping Services

For large and oversized products, we use LTL shipping. After your product ships from our warehouse, you will receive an email containing tracking information and details about the freight carrier assigned to your order.

Shortly following the shipment, you will be contacted by the carrier to set up a delivery date. CUSTOMERS MUST BE PRESENT FOR THE DELIVERY OR FEES FROM THE FREIGHT COMPANY WILL INCUR. Please download and read carefully the Freight Receiving Instructions before the arrival of your package.

Transit times vary depending on your delivery area.

LTL Shipping Options are as follows:

Curbside Delivery - FREE by default for US continental areas.

Curbside delivery is our standard delivery method and is free for all freight orders. Important: The customer must be available to receive the delivery or fees will incur. Driver will offload the freight to the curb at the end of your driveway. Drivers do not bring freight into house, garage, backyard, etc. Due to this being a curbside delivery, the customer is responsible for moving the product after the initial unloading. It is also the customer’s responsibility to inspect the product to check for damages and missing parts. If the customer does not reject the delivery after assessing the product, the customer is then responsible for noting any damage or missing parts on the shipping bill. Curbside delivery does not include any additional services such as setting the product in place, unpacking, plugging in, installation or debris removal. For an additional cost, customers may request a second person to assist with unloading.

 

LTL/Freight Ship Time

LTL Shipping generally takes 7 - 20 Business Days
