Oversized shipments, for 9x12 and larger rug, may be too big for UPS or FedEx. We may ship "Over Sized" shipments via truck line, which may take an extra day or two. Freight trucking companies will usually call you directly to make delivery arrangements.

Delivery method

We ship most products from our warehouse or from our manufacturers' warehouses via UPS or FedEx ground service. Some of our items are too large to ship via UPS or FedEx and must be shipped via truck or a specialized carrier. In most cases, these carriers will call you prior to delivering your order to help arrange your delivery during regular business hours.

All items shipped to a residential or business location will be delivered to your door. Please know, unless your item is over sized, you will not receive a call prior to delivery; since both UPS and FedEx are unable to provide this service. You may receive “inside delivery” from our freight line, and you can expect your freight shipments to be carried “over the threshold” of your home.
