Frequently Asked Questions

What is the delivery and installation process?

Our team will arrive at your destination via flatbed truck with all their tools in tow so they are ready to start the install. 

If you have a steep driveway or narrow street, it might be hard for our installation sub-contractors to get their truck and trailer into your home. Please let us know if this could be an issue before arrival. 

The installation crew will confirm the order with you, then get to work installing it. Depending on how complex your steel structure is, this process can take 1-2 days.

How long does the process take?

Processing and sending in your order only takes 20 minutes.Delivery time will vary depending on your location and what we have going out to your area at the time. We like to give you a delivery date when you place the order so it can be the most accurate.

How do I need to prepare for the delivery and install of my new metal building?

1. To avoid any disruptions in the installation process, be sure to call 811 if you know where water or electric lines are running so they can mark them for free.

2. Level sites are required for a successful installation. Prepare level lot by moving earth if necessary to create an even surface and avoid any cut leg fees or other additional labor/return trip costs -charges that might be incurred when working on slopes with uneven surfaces

3. The concrete pad for a building should be the exact measurements of the building. 

4. Clear the way for us by clearing all obstacles in and around your installation site such as cars, recreational vehicles or debris.

5. Installation crews need a minimum of 36” all around the building to fasten any wall paneling, end wall framing, and trim.

It’s always wise to make sure your site is prepared for an installation because not doing so could result in additional labor charges or even a return trip fee!

Is it cheaper if I order from the manufacturer direct?

It would be the same exact cost. We work together with manufacturers to service the largest possible area, and we only work with top of the line manufacturers.
