New Fuel Surcharges Are in Effect

The cost of fuel has increased substantially, and with this added overhead we regretfully must raise costs in regions outside the western states that are further away from our warehouse. Please see the map below to see how zones are affected.

Fuel Surcharges

 

 

How Our Shipping Process Works

We work with Echo Logistics and their freight partners to ship all of our tents. Once your Roofnest shipment leaves our warehouse in Los Angeles we’ll email you with your shipper’s contact information and a tracking number (called a “PRO” number).

Scheduling Your Roofnest Delivery

The freight carrier will call you to schedule the final delivery, and it’s important that you schedule delivery for when you know you’ll be home as you will need to inspect the package for any visible damage and sign for the delivery. Note: While the delivery services are generally good about calling to schedule delivery, we recommend you call them proactively to schedule your delivery.

Receiving Your Roofnest Delivery

When the delivery company arrives, they’ll pull the box off the truck (your tent will be on a pallet) and ask you to sign the delivery ticket to clear the delivery. NOTE: Deliveries to Alaska arrive at the terminal in Anchorage, and deliveries to Hawaii arrive at your island’s terminal.

Check Your Package for Damage

IT IS VERY IMPORTANT FOR YOU TO FOLLOW THESE STEPS BEFORE YOU SIGN:

  • Take your time and carefully inspect the box for any visible damage to it or the tent. While it’s rare for any tent to arrive with damage, it, unfortunately, does happen on occasion.
  • Note: The driver will not assist in inspection and may even make you feel rushed, but don’t allow him/her to affect your careful inspection.
  • If there is no damage, you can accept and sign for your delivery.

If you notice surface damage to the tent box (punctures, indentions, etc.):

  • Make sure you report any damage to your tent within 48 hours of delivery to ensure a claim can be filed.
  • Take photos of those areas and note the details of what you see on the delivery ticket prior to accepting the delivery.
  • Then, take a photo of the signed delivery ticket with the damage noted and email the photos of the damage and signed delivery ticket to [email protected]
  • We will review all items noted and work with you to resolve them.

If you notice what you think could be extreme damage, please refuse the tent delivery (the box is smashed up, visible tent damage inside the box, etc.):.
