Most small accessories by Gorilla Playsets will ship via UPS; all other Gorilla Playset products are shipped ground freight by Less Than Truckload (LTL) service (swing sets, playhouses, and heavier playset add-ons). When the shipment arrives at the freight terminal near your location, you will be contacted by the carrier to arrange a delivery appointment, at your convenience. While the carrier may allow flexibility in appointment times, needs for lengthy delays in appointments may result in storage fees, at your expense.
Curbside Delivery is where the public street meets the homeowner’s property. If an 18 wheeler cannot stop and unload at this junction, additional charges will apply. Delivery onto the homeowner’s property is not part of curbside delivery, but can be pre-paid during the delivery appointment.
The carrier will deliver and unload as close to your property line (curbside) as is accessible by the delivery vehicle. This service does not include set up or assembly of items or removal of packaging materials. The customer will be responsible for the contents after the delivery. Freight services are prepaid by YardKid (free shipping for you), and no additional charges should be presented to you at the time of delivery. However, you may request additional services of the carrier (yard delivery, garage delivery, or address change) when the carrier contacts you for a delivery appointment. These services may involve additional charges, and are not the responsibility of YardKid nor Gorilla Playsets.
YardKid nor Gorilla Playsets are not responsible for deliveries that are misdirected due to an incorrect shipping address, including any fees incurred from misdirected deliveries. If a shipment cannot be delivered successfully as a result of invalid shipping address, or if no one is available to accept/sign for the delivery after an extended period of time, the carrier may need to return the shipment to our warehouse. If this should occur, after a reasonable attempt has been made to make these arrangements with the recipient, a refund for the purchase will be provided, minus any shipping fees incurred.
While YardKid / Gorilla Playsets work closely with its carriers to assure timely shipment of your order, delivery times are NOT guaranteed, and various factors can impact the carrier's ability to deliver within the expected time frame. These factors include:
- Your location in relation to the warehouse
- The carrier's equipment
- Other unforeseen events that may delay shipping times
Free delivery is good for a standard delivery (no rush deliveries), and is available ONLY in the lower 48 states. Deliveries refused, including those due to late deliveries on the carrier's behalf will be refunded minus all incurred shipping costs, which may include, but is not limited to, shipping costs to and from the respective delivery address.
