Delivery & Fuel Surcharge
Delivery is free for orders over $350.00 within 75 miles of our
nursery. Orders below the minimum will be charged $60.00 delivery
($30.00 local if we are already headed your direction with another
delivery). Outside of a 75 mile radius from our nursery, delivery
fee will be determined case by case with a minimum delivery fee of
$100. $1000 minimum over 100 miles. Due to uncertain fuel prices we
have a 10¢ per mile fuel surcharge on all deliveries as long as fuel
is over $2.00 per gallon. If fuel reaches $3.00 per gallon, the
surcharge will increase to 20¢ .
Currently, we have four delivery
trucks. We do our best to accommodate swift shipment of orders and
delivery on the date requested. Generally, we ship one to three days
from order date. We cannot give exact delivery times, please call
the morning of delivery to get our best estimate!
Gallon plants are shipped in trays
that are unpacked upon delivery. Trays are available for purchase
for $1.50 each with advance notice. Trays kept by
customers at the time of delivery will be charged, and this fee will
be added to the order invoice.
If no one is on site to help unload
plants on orders of fifteen cases or more, a $25.00 unloading fee
will be added to the order invoice. Orders over 24 cases will not be
unloaded without help.
