DELIVERIES

Below are a few things you will need to take into account when expecting a truck/trailer delivery.

  • Your driveway must be a stone base or free of mud that would cause the delivery vehicle to get stuck
  • An area 2 feet wider than the width of the structure and 15 feet high.
  • All turns must be cleared for maneuver of the truck and trailer.
  • The site must be clear of trees, tree limbs, etc. within the delivery area.
  • Adequate room in front of the structure for the truck to pull straight out after delivery is required. This distance varies with the length of the building: approximately 50 feet to 150 feet; this will vary from one site to another.
  • The desired position of the build on the trailer should be stated before delivery. For example, should the doors be facing forward or backwards on the trailer? 


If you are concerned about delivery, a site visit is recommended. A site visit fee may apply depending on your location. Contact us for more information We normally allocate 1 hour for deliveries. Deliveries that exceed the allocated time will be charged at a rate of $150.00 per hour.


The safety of our staff and our equipment is of the utmost importance to us. For this reason, we reserve the right to cancel scheduled deliveries due to inclement weather and unsafe delivery conditions. 

Generally, the unit will be ready for delivery within approximately 3 weeks from the date we receive a deposit. However seasonal demand and unforeseen circumstances may delay deliveries.   We deliver to various areas in Ontario and Western Quebec.  We deliver to many local areas free of charge, please inquire about delivery rates.

SITE PREPARATION

All of our units are built on pressure treated skis.  As a result, they are portable, easy to place, airflow under the unit is increased, thereby extending life expectancy as the unit never makes direct contact with the ground.  Expensive ground preparation is not required, generally, all that is needed is a gravel base or 12" x 12" patio stones can also be used as a base.  If you have to obtain a building permit, please check with your local municipality to see what they require for the site preparation as this may differ from one municipality to another.

EXTERIOR WOOD OPTIONS

If left untreated, the pine exterior will blacken over time.  If this is not the type of look you want for your unit, the exterior can be treated with a stain or linseed oil mixed with varsol.  The exterior should be treated at least every three years to maintain the desired appearance.  We offer a wide array of exterior colour stains for you to choose from. Our preferred stain is Sikkens SRD RE which is a reduced emissions stain. Please inquire about pricing.
