Delivery Options

Thanks for considering Rhino Metals for your purchase.  Once you’ve selected your item, the next step is to determine the level of delivery that you need at your home or business. 

 

Before completing your purchase, please familiarize yourself with the level of service that you require at your home or business.

Most items sold on rhinosafe.com include free curbside delivery service.  Free curbside delivery provides delivery of your item to the curb at the end of your driveway. The carrier will call in advance and will unload your item using a lift gate. Depending on the weight of the item, you may need to make arrangements for some additional assistance to move it from the curb.  A pallet jack is helpful in moving your item beyond the curb and can be rented inexpensively. If your delivery location has an inaccessible or challenging approach (narrow/steep) for a tractor/trailer, you will need to select a Sapphire or Diamond delivery or arrange to pick up your item from the carriers dock.  *Some items are ineligible for in-home delivery.

Please Note:  Any in-home deliveries (Emerald, Sapphire or Diamond) require a flat level concrete or paved pathway.  Customer is responsible for ensuring all paths, structures, and foundations involved can safely support the combined weight of the installation crew, the item, and moving equipment.  Additional charges may apply for certain terrain, stairway configurations, difficult installations, marble/tile/wood floors, and other circumstances or obstacles that complicate the delivery.  We also reserve the right to decline installations or deliveries that we feel might risk injury or property damage

Delivery Instructions

1. If ordering direct at rhinosafe.com, you will receive an email from us with the carrier tracking information once your item has shipped. Your item will be shipped with a common freight carrier to a local delivery terminal.

2. After the item arrives at the local carrier terminal, you will be contacted by the delivery agent to set up an appointment for a 4-hour delivery window. Deliveries are made 8:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m., Monday through Friday. If you are unable to keep your scheduled delivery window, you may be charged a redelivery fee. When scheduling your delivery window, we suggest you record the delivery agent's name and phone number for your later reference. Weekend/evening delivery is not available.

3. Free curbside delivery only - Your item will be delivered to the curb at the end of your driveway by a liftgate truck and will be taken off the truck by the delivery driver. Common carriers typically deliver with large tractor trailers and cannot drive on (or operate a pallet jack on) a gravel or dirt roadway. Liftgate service is included in the delivery; however, drivers do not assist with unpacking, set-up, moving freight beyond the curbside, or disposal of packing materials. If you need garage or inside delivery, we would recommend that you choose an Emerald, Sapphire or Diamond delivery option.

4. Upon delivery please inspect your item. Any damage to the outer carton would warrant further inspection. Please note any damage to the item or packaging on the delivery receipt or, if refusing delivery due to damage, please note ‘REFUSED DUE TO DAMAGE’ on this receipt.

5. An adult (person over 18 years of age) will be required to sign a Proof of Delivery receipt. A signature is required for all deliveries; the driver is unable to complete delivery without a signed delivery receipt. Please note, if you live down a roadway that the delivery truck cannot access, we will be unable to complete delivery.  Inside delivery providers typically utilize smaller trucks necessary for difficult deliveries.

YOU HAVE THE RIGHT TO REFUSE DAMAGED FREIGHT – IF YOU REFUSE YOUR SHIPMENT, THE DRIVER WILL RETURN IT TO RHINO METALS FREE OF CHARGE. CONTACT OUR RETURNS DEPT. TO ARRANGE FOR A REPLACEMENT. PLEASE REVIEW THE RETURN POLICY, SHIPPING TERMS AND CONDITIONS FOR MORE INFO ON RECEIVING FREIGHT WITH POTENTIAL DAMAGE.

For custom Rhino product, the estimated delivery time will be approximately 8-10 weeks from the time of order. Certain models may be in stock and could ship faster. Kodiak and Longhorn branded products will typically deliver in 7-10 days. If you need to delay your shipment or change your delivery address or notify us of a challenging delivery condition (rural areas, islands, etc), please reply to the email you received when placing your order.
