--- Terms ---
Some items sold by ACF Greenhouses are shipped directly from the manufacturer's
warehouse. While this helps us to deliver products to customers faster, it also
means that your order may consist of items from multiple locations (you could
possibly receive multiple packages arriving at different times). Below is a breakdown
of delivery methods and shipping times. ACF does not ship outside of the USA.
Item availability and prices are subject to change without notice. 5%
sales tax applies to Virginia residents. Customers will be charged $35 per instance
for any returned checks or chargebacks. An additional charge of 25% will be applied
to delinquent accounts that are turned over to collections. We reserve the right
to refuse any order we feel is fraudulent. Please
send an email to
if you have any comments or suggestions about our site. All feedback is appreciated.
Free Shipping: Any item which we offer free
shipping is limited to the contiguous United States. Please contact us
for the availability and cost to ship elsewhere.
Grow lights will only be shipped to an address
listed with your credit card company. Shipping addresses can easily be added to
most credit card accounts by calling the phone number on the back of the credit

Shipment by Priority Mail
These orders are shipped by the USPS and can be shipped to any destination
in the United States that excepts postal mail. Orders are normally shipped
within 1 to 2 business days. Orders are shipped by Priority Mail service
(delivery usually takes 2
to 3 business days after order is shipped) unless otherwise stated. This
shipping option is limited on our site to small packages under 5 lbs. Delivery
times are not guaranteed. For more information about USPS services, please visit
Shipment by UPS Ground and 2nd Day Air
These orders are shipped by UPS and can be shipped to any destination in
the United States (except PO Boxes). Orders are normally shipped within 1
to 2 business days. Orders are shipped by Ground (delivery
usually takes 3 to 6 business days after order is shipped) unless otherwise
stated. 2nd Day Air (Guaranteed
to arrive 2 business days after it is shipped) service is guaranteed from
time of shipping, not from when the order was placed. UPS does not deliver on
Saturday or Sunday or require a signature for delivery. For more information about
UPS services, please visit www.ups.com.
UPS Additional Delivery Fee
If a customer changes their delivery address after shipment or an incorrect
shipping address is provided, UPS charges an additional $12 per package which
we pass on to the customer. Common address mistakes include:
- Using incorrect or missing important works like North, Avenue, Street, Place,
- Wrong city or incorrect zip code used.
- No apartment or suite # specified when applicable.
Online Orders: Some items shipped via 2nd Day
Air may incur dimensional weight surcharges not reflected in the online shopping
cart. You will be notified before shipping if additional charges apply.
Shipment by FREIGHT TRUCK (Items
shipped by freight truck include the following)
Freight orders can be shipped to most destinations located
in the United States (except Alaska and Hawaii). Sunshine
and Cross Country
greenhouses normally take 3 to 5 weeks to be delivered. Aspen
greenhouses and heaters are usually delivered in 1 to 2 weeks. It is the customer's
responsibility to be present at the time of delivery for residential orders (the
freight carrier will contact you to schedule a delivery day. Delivery times are
generally limited to standard business day hours). Freight trucks are only
responsible for curbside delivery. Most freight terminals only have full size
tractor trailers available to deliver with. If this size truck is unable to drive
to your address, you will probably need to have the shipment delivered to another
location. For most shipments, it is recommended that at least two people be available
to help the freight truck driver unload the shipment. Freight carriers do not
deliver on Saturday or Sunday. If you have special delivery needs, call us at
888-888-9050, and we will do our best to accommodate you.
Once the carrier signs the bill of lading (receipt) they
become your agent acting on your behalf as though you were there picking up the
order yourself. The safe and careful handling of your shipment is then their
responsibility. Upon arrival at your destination, you should be aware of
some helpful steps on handling the receipt.
FREIGHT TRUCK DELIVERY
1. Count the number of pieces.
Check the number of boxes received against the number shown
on the driver's delivery sheet. If there is a shortage, write the number
of missing boxes on your copy and the driver's copy of the receipt, and have the
driver sign both copies.
2. Check the delivery for damages.
When checking for damages, it is important to look for
all visible damage such as, boxes that are crushed, dented, torn, opened, resealed,
punctured, wet, stained, and the number of boxes delivered without regard to the
"This Side Up" instructions printed on the box. Make all notations of shortages
or damages directly under the contents shipped section on all copies of the delivery
receipt. Failure to note damage on delivery receipts will cause delays in the
replacement process and possibly having to prove the damage was not done after
you received the shipment.
3. Do not refuse delivery for minor damage.
If a package is damaged, check the contents for damage before refusing delivery.
If damage appears to be minor, and only a few items need to be replaced, we recommend
accepting the shipment (or at least any undamaged packages) after making note
of damages on delivery receipt. Doing this will speed up the replacement process
in many cases because parts can be shipped sooner and faster delivery methods
can be used.
4. Contact us if you have a problem.
The guidelines above will help us to process any claims
you may have faster. Please contact us within 10 to 15 days of delivery if you
have problems with your shipment. We will work with you and the carrier
to replace any damaged or missing items as soon as possible.
