Production lead times vary from season to season. Give us a call at 888.355.3050 for a current estimate for when your sauna will ship. On the day your sauna ships, you will receive an email notification which will provide the carrier and tracking number. When the shipment arrives to your region, the carrier will call you to arrange a delivery appointment. If you will be away and unable to receive delivery, we recommend making arrangements for someone to receive delivery on your behalf. At this time, LTL shipments are experiencing an increase in volume. Due to the high traffic, there is a possibility that your sauna will arrive beyond the expected ship date.
The freight charge you pay includes delivery curbside to your home; the carrier will offload your order with a lift-gate to the curb at the end of your driveway (this excludes cabin saunas and larger barrel saunas).
Examine the exterior of the shipment. The sauna will be packaged, wrapped, and banded on a single pallet and can be maneuvered with the aid of a pallet jack. The pallet can also be disassembled and each item moved individually. We recommend having at least 2 individuals available to accept delivery.
In the rare instance the carrier determines that delivery cannot be made due to isolation or other specifics of your location, you may pursue other options.
Option 1: A smaller delivery truck can be arranged through a third-party carrier. These arrangements can be made by Almost Heaven, but you will be responsible for any added costs if they are incurred.
Option 2: Saunas can be picked up at the local terminal. Most saunas can fit onto a pickup truck or small trailer, and the travel time to the terminal is typically between 1-2 hours.
If the customer refuses the sauna delivery without pursuing the options listed above, the customer will be held responsible for the return shipping costs and any related costs. Likewise, any re-delivery or storage fees incurred will be charged to the customer.
If you have any questions or concerns regarding delivery to your location, it is advised that you discuss them with your Almost Heaven Saunas representative at the time of order.
