Shipping

Shipping Times – Estimated Arrival

Some pool packages are taking 2-3 weeks as normal, and some are taking about 6-8 weeks to be delivered. There will come a time this year (2021) when it will be longer. We are working very closely with our manufacturer to monitor shipping times as best we can.

Most companies we are experiencing delays in order fulfillment. We deal with only the most reputable companies, so when they tell us we can expect our products and supplies, we believe them. What we tell you is what we have been told.

There is no cost for a full and immediate refund if you cancel “BEFORE” your pool ships. You may request a full refund (every penny) at anytime “BEFORE” your pool goes out the door.

Shipping Cost

free shipping truck carrier

Our shipping rates are $100.00 – $250.00 depending where you are in the country. higher rates are out west, especially north west.

We ship every pool-package via freight with names we have come to trust (Ward, R&L, Saia, and more).

We ask all our shipping partners to arrive with a power tailgate so they can lower the pallet(s) down to the ground for you. This service is called driver assisted power tailgate. Most drivers are friendly and accommodating, but they are not responsible for bringing your pool where you want, just to deliver it to your address.

If you have a commercial address with either dock height warehouse, or a fork truck available please add the note during checkout. or drop a note.

In rare cases, you will be asked to go get your above-ground pool kit from the closest shipping terminal, or the trucking company may agree to meet you somewhere more convenient. This is usually due to the roads or bridges leading to your property not capable of supporting truck traffic (This is totally up to carrier). Again rare cases!

Once your pool ships you will receive an email providing you a PRO tracking number. The shipping company will call you to arrange delivery once the package reaches a terminal local to your location, if you have any concerns because you live in a rural area, please discuss them while you have the company on the phone trying to coordinate the delivery with you.

Any pools left at the shipping terminal will be assessed storage fees after just a few days. So you need to be reachable! In the shipping notification email we tell you to answer the phone for strange numbers as it may be the carrier trying to arrange delivery.

We will do our best in all cases to assist you.

ATTENTION PLEASE

We are paying most or all of the cost to ship your pool to you, even if it is termed “free shipping”. “If for ANY REASON you should decide to return your pool“, or “refuse delivery once it has shipped”, You will be charge the full cost of shipping the pool to you, and the full cost of shipping it back to us (no exceptions). You will pay the full actual freight cost (not to exceed our cost) for both shipping and returning your order.

Shipping Damage

In the event of damaged items, you must accept the non-damaged items, and new items will be sent to you to replace damaged pieces. Pay particular attention to toprail box. When there is damage it is usually this box.

In the rare cases where Toprails have been damaged, its usually easy to straighten out the little bends at the edges since these go under the trim caps. Professional installers do this all the time and it does not effect warranty or guarantees.

Do not assume the delivery company has given you all the items on the truck, or has not misplaced a part of your order.

If you signed that you received everything, you will be responsible to replace said items in the event the shipping company cannot find it.
