How do I arrange and pay for shipping?
Pacific Yurts will schedule shipment of your yurt to the specified delivery address, however you will be the party contracting with the freight company for delivery of your yurt. This allows our customers to take advantage of our discounted freight rates. Except by prior arrangement, your yurt will be shipped freight collect. Freight charges are paid directly to the freight carrier prior to or at the time of delivery. We will provide you with tracking information and a contact phone number for the freight carrier after the yurt leaves our facility. We recommend calling the freight company at that time to coordinate the delivery of your shipment and payment of the freight charges.
How do I unload my yurt?
What do I need to know if I pick up my uncrated yurt at your facility?
Some of our customers choose to pick up their yurt at our facility. The hours for pick up are 8:30 am to 2:30 pm, Monday through Friday. We can supply “Vehicle Load-Out Minimum Requirement” diagrams which will help you choose an appropriately sized vehicle for picking up your yurt. Since the combination of features chosen will dictate the final weight and dimensions of the components, it is important to speak to our shipping clerk about the specific load-out requirements for your order. For instance, if your order includes glass window systems, additional space would be required.
