Shipping Methods

  • Items shipped via UPS Ground will be delivered based on the driver's judgment to make an appointment or leave the package on the premises without a signature if no one is present at delivery.
  • Larger items are shipped LTL (Less than Truckload) carriers and require an appointment for delivery. The LTL carrier will contact you to set an appointment for delivery as the shipment nears the delivering terminal. These items may require someone to help with carrying the package from curbside to the desired location and an inspection of the product is required prior to signing the delivery receipt.
  • Stone and marble mantels are shipped via LTL (Less than Truck Load) carriers and require an appointment for the curbside delivery.  The Carrier will contact you to set a delivery appointment.  These items may require someone to help with carrying the package from curbside to the desired location and an inspection of the product is required prior to signing the delivery receipt.  Trucks with lift gates are used on these deliveries and removal of packaging at curbside and having someone to help carry individual pieces into your home may be required.
  • Review the special Shipping Terms and Conditions for Large or Heavy Items

Your total satisfaction is our goal!

Thorough inspections of your order are made during packaging and shipping to ensure your items are in perfect condition when leaving our facilities. However, during shipment, damages rarely but on occasion occur. For LTL (less than truckload) shipments you need to inspect the contents of all boxes at the time of delivery, especially in cases where the outside of your package appears to be damaged when you receive it. On all LTL shipments you should:

  • Open the package and inspect for obvious damage to the product with carrier present. If any is found please write, "Refusing the shipment due to damage" on the Bill of Lading and contact us immediately so we can initiate a replacement order as soon as possible.
  • It is more difficult to hold an LTL carrier responsible if you are not present when the product is delivered and have not noted damage on the delivery paper. It becomes more important to notify us immediately at (800) 820-7177 and we will notify the carrier, begin the damage claim, and will initiate a replacement order as soon as possible. (Please note we must notify the carrier within 24 hours of any products that have been delivered with damage.)

Mantel Craft is committed to being the best provider of architectural elements for creating the perfect home. Therefore, we provide a guarantee to you that if there is any problem with quality or workmanship, we will make any necessary corrections including a full refund if necessary within 30 days of your receipt of the product.
