River City Flooring Ships All Over The United States
River City Flooring is pleased to be able to ship all over the lower 48 states (for now!) We believe that everyone should be able to purchase the floors that they love, no matter where they live.
The River City Flooring Delivery Process
When receiving your order, be prepared to assist the delivery driver in unloading your order. All shipments over 9 cartons of material will be quoted with liftgate.
The driver WILL NOT assist you in unloading the truck or carry into the house. Freight carriers are not allowed to move material into your home or garage. Cartons can weigh up to 80 lbs, depending on the product. The order confirmation received lists all the materials and quantities ordered. Examine the pallet(s) and count each item to make sure everything ordered has been received.
What to do if your product arrives damaged.
Visually inspect the condition and entirety of the shipment before accepting it. If there is any sign of distress or items missing make sure to notate that on the Bill of Lading and ACCEPT the delivery. Please also take pictures of the damaged areas while still on the pallet as well as any damage to the boxes.
DO NOT allow the delivery driver to leave until you have verified shipment.
Once we have the images of the damaged product, we can help you figure out if you will need replacements or if the material is usable. If the material is not usable i.e. cannot be used for start or end row pieces or if there is more than one or two boxes “damaged”, then we will wait until the end of the job to see if you need replacements. We do not want to send out replacement cartons if you are going to have extra, because 7% of what you order should be considered waste accounting for cut pieces. You will need to cut pieces anyways for your job, you may be able to use most of the boards from any damaged cartons as those cut pieces.
We cannot issue credits or replacements if damage is not notated with the driver at the time of delivery and images are not sent to us.
Once unloaded, we STRONGLY recommend storing the material in the location it will be installed. This will allow the flooring to acclimate and reduce the number of times you will have to move it. Failure to store the materials properly can result in voiding the product warranty.
River City Flooring Shipping Times
Our shipping times vary by product. Most items are in stock and we will display stock quantities if we have a live and active stock feed from one of our partner warehouses for an item. Stock information is not available for display for all items – some of our partner warehouses do not report stock status to us daily – if stock is not listed for a product and you would like to know its availability before placing your order, please call or email us for approximate times.
If you place an order for an item which is not available to ship immediately you will receive an email notifying you of the expected ship-date. Most items not in stock can be sourced direct to the manufacturer if needed to minimize the lead time for you.
River City Flooring Delivery Partners
All deliveries are made with an independent trucking and logistics company. We address any problems with material handling directly with the carrier company. Any issues between driver, dispatch, and customer are outside of our control.
Within the lower 48 states, orders are typically delivered within 10-14 business days. This allows 2-3 days for order and payment processing and 7-10 business days to arrange and execute transit. All delivery dates are estimated; we cannot guarantee specific delivery dates under any circumstances. Seasonal weather conditions may impact transit and cause unexpected delays. The best advice we can give is that you NOT plan your installation date until the flooring has been delivered to you.
River City Flooring Return Policy
Some items are non-returnable *custom* ordered products. Some of these brands include but are not limited to: Century, Lauzon, Mirage, Mullican, and Somerset.
Returns can be made within 30 days minus a 25% re-stocking fee plus the cost of shipping the material back to our warehouse. ALL TRIMS ARE NON-RETURNABLE.
