Shipping

We are based in the Seattle, WA area and ship to the entire United States (including Hawaii via DHX) and Canada.  The cut-off time for same day shipping is 12:00PM PST.

Most stock orders are shipped within 1-2 business days, pending unforeseen circumstances. 

We will do our best to supply accurate shipping and tracking information; however, Inline Design is not responsible for construction delays due to the unavailability of a product or a delayed shipment. Inline Design does not recommend scheduling an installation before your product is received and inspected. Do not wait until installers are present to inspect the product.

Orders which exceed tube lengths of 94” (7ft 10in.) must be shipped by Less Than Truckload (LTL) motor freight with our discounted rates. If additional freight charges apply to your online order which you were not aware of when your order was placed, you will have the opportunity to cancel or adjust your order. Inline Design does not offer lift gates for freight shipments.

Freight shipping:

If your products are being delivered by freight you will need to meet the freight delivery truck and help unload the materials, item by item, from the back of the truck. Inline Design takes photos of pallets and long tubing bundles, and crates [the referred to shipment items] for every freight shipment before they are picked up by the carrier. Those photos are then sent to the customer along with an instruction email as soon as the shipment is picked up by the assigned freight carrier. You may call Inline Design before signing the freight bill if there are any concerns.

Customers are responsible for inspecting the merchandise for accuracy upon delivery and comparing the delivered items to the shipment photos provided by Inline Design. The following procedures must be followed if there is a problem with your shipment:

  1. The customer should refuse the shipment if all items are damaged. We recommend immediately capturing as many photos of damaged items as possible. In the event that only some of the items are damaged, the customer may accept any undamaged items and refuse the damaged ones. It is mandatory to document damaged items on the shipment receipt before the driver leaves. Inline Design will ship a replacement for the damaged item(s) [within 48 hours for in stock items and within 5 business days for custom produced items] if the aforementioned instructions are followed properly.
  2. If there are missing items, but no items are damaged, the customer may accept the shipment, but must document the missing items on the shipment receipt as a “partial delivery”. It is mandatory to document on the shipment receipt what is missing before the driver leaves. If these instructions are followed properly, Inline Design will work with the carrier to locate the missing item(s). In most cases the item or items are located within 48 hours and delivered back to the customer. For any missing item that takes more than 72 business hours to locate, Inline Design will ship a replacement via UPS Ground or LTL Freight.

    Example: The shipment photos show (2) pallets and (1) tube bundle. The customer received (2) pallets and (0) tube bundles. The customer documents on the shipment receipt that they received (2) pallets and no bundle. Again, this should be completed before the driver leaves.

  3. If the customer finds there is a missing or incorrect item after opening packages, and that the mistake is due to Inline Design not including or incorrectly packaging said item, customers must report the discrepancy to Inline Design within 48 hours of receiving the shipment. Please do not confuse this with missing items due to shipping, which should be documented on the shipment receipt immediately (see 2. above)

DISCLAIMER: For residential deliveries, freight delivery is curbside ONLY. The freight provider and Inline Design are not responsible for any residential driveways that are considered an “Impracticable Delivery”. This includes but is not limited to:

  1. The condition of roads, streets, driveways, alleys or approaches thereto;

  2. Inadequate loading or unloading facilities;

  3. Riots, inclement weather, the public enemy, the authority of law, the existence of violence, or such possible disturbances as tending to create reasonable apprehension of danger to person or property.

Inline Design cannot be held liable if the above instructions are not followed. Inline Design takes pictures of every shipment and any reported missing or damaged item will be investigated according to the documented pictures. 

UPS and small packages:

In case an item was delivered and a package is damaged or open, please take pictures before completely opening the package and checking for missing items. Missing items must be reported within 48 hours of receipt of a shipment. Inline Design takes pictures of every shipment and any reported missing items will be investigated according to the documented pictures. Any missing/replacement product will be shipped via UPS Ground shipping only. Inline Design is not responsible for any construction delays caused by missing/replacement items. Inline Design does not recommend scheduling an installation before the shipment tracking information is verified. Customers have the option to upgrade expedited shipping, at their own expense.

Shipping charges are calculated on a per-product basis and vary according to product type and destination. As a general guideline, orders which weigh less than 150 lbs and measure less than 94” (7' 10") will ship via UPS ground. Packages over 7' 10" in length that ship via UPS ground may be subject to oversized package charges. If you’d like to check if your package will be subject to oversize charges, please view the UPS shipping weight and size limits?
