Terms and Condition
DELIVERY TIME: An agent or employee of Lowder Buildings, LLC or Shed Wranglers or sheds direct inc (or another partner hauling company agent) will contact the Buyer upon completion of the building as more particularly described in the Purchase Contract (Order Form), to schedule a date and time for delivery of said building at a location determined by the Buyer. (This call is typically 5 days ahead of the estimated delivery date on the Order Form.)
Any given delivery time is approximate, and delivery dates are not guaranteed, as there is the possibility of unforeseen circumstances that can delay delivery, including but not limited to weather conditions, that can compromise the delivery date and/or time. In the event that the delivery must be delayed or rescheduled, an agent or employee of Lowder Buildings, LLC or Shed Wranglers will contact the Buyer to discuss the delay and make suitable arrangements for delivery. In the event that the agent or employee of Lowder Buildings, LLC or Shed Wranglers or Sheds Direct Inc is unable to contact the Buyer due to no fault of the agent or employee, then Lowder Buildings, LLC or Shed Wranglers reserves the right to reschedule the delivery for another day and/or time.
The hauler usually schedules 1 week in advance, so please be sure to answer his call or respond to messages so that he knows that you are able to have your building delivered. If he is unable to reach you, he will have to continue scheduling other customers which may prolong your delivery date. The hauler is unable to schedule on one day’s notice other than special circumstances.
