SHIPPING 

BHR Timber Products has been shipping products nationwide for many years. Our shipping staff is well-versed in the art of packaging for the road.  Every product will be wrapped against weather and road damage with appropriate side and bottom protection.

Small orders

We use UPS for the smallest orders.  UPS will only accept pieces under 8 feet, but this is often conventient for customers looking for just a few pieces.  We use common carriers for unit size loads (approximately 500 to 2,000 board feet).  We ship these products to a central terminal where they are taken to destinations all over the United States.

large orders

Larger orders can save you money on shipping costs.  We hire an independent carrier who hauls with a 48 foot flatbed truck to a particular region.  We ship this way about once or twice a week.  Some access restrictions may apply.  Please inform your salesman whether the road to your job site can accommodate up to 70 feet in length for a truck turnaround capability.  Narrow, winding, and steep roads my prevent delivery.  If this is the case, please advise us of your alternative delivery/unloading arrangements.  Your local lumber yard will often assist you with your unloading needs.

Product is wrapped in reusable abrine (water-repellant) lumber wrap which is fully banded with steel banding. Each unit is usually 2,000 pounds in weight.

 

If, for any reason, you find your product has been damaged en route, note the damage on the bill of lading before signing off on the delivery paperwork.  File the complaint with the frieght company for damage reimbursement.  Next, call your salesperson to discuss replacement.
