Shipping and Processing

Q: How are items shipped?

During online order checkout you will be provided with shipping options and estimated shipping charges. A few items, such as architectural glass & large kilns can be delivered by freight ONLY. Items requiring freight delivery will be specified in the product's description. Franklin receives very competitive freight rates that are passed on to you.
Q: How much do you charge for shipping?
A: Basic shipping and processing charges depend on the destination and the weight of your order, as well as the delivery method you choose. For faster shipping, you may choose UPS Next Day, Second Day Air, and 3 Day Select Delivery for most orders. During the checkout process you will be given these shipping options (if applicable) and shown an ESTIMATE of the shipping charges at the time of check out.

You will be charged actual shipping costs after check out and before your order is shipped. Should the shipping costs total less than the estimated amount you will be charged the lesser (actual) cost. Should the shipping costs exceed the estimate, you will be contacted by email or phone to receive your authorization for the additional amount.

We will ship replacement merchandise or arrange credit for the damage.

If you are present when the package is delivered, inspect it before signing for the delivery.

Freight Shipments

We also offer motor freight as an alternative to UPS and the US Mail shipping methods. Motor freight is a great alternative if you do not want your glass cut down for shipment; we will gladly crate your glass and ship it in full uncut sheets. Motor freight is also used for large shipments such as kilns and hazardous ORM-D chemicals that may not be shipped by UPS or US Mail. At Franklin Art Glass Studios, we have several freight companies with whom we have accounts, and we will get you the best shipping rate possible.

*Please note that freight arrangements will be made on your behalf and will require communication by phone.

Before determining freight charges we must know, among other things, if liftgate service is required and/or if the shipment will be delivered to a commercial or residential address.
