We do not have set rates for orders. As every order is different it is impossible to have set rates. We do have special rates with UPS and many LTL Carriers. We pass these savings on to you, our customers. (We bill you, the customer, what we are billed by the freight carrier).
We do pack your order in the most efficient manner possible to save you money.
Please note that you are responsible for all freight charges, including ancillary charges, including but not limited to: Residential Delivery, Liftgate Fee, Address Correction, Customs, etc. Home Decoration Accessories reserves the right to invoice the customer for any freight adjustments due to address error or customs.

Yes. We can do drop ships and ship to venues or one time ship tos.
Please note that discounted rates apply to shipments originating from our facility. Drop ships may not receive the discounted rates.
- What does "This item can be shipped on a pallet only." mean?
This item is too fragile to send via UPS small package (individual boxes). It is almost certain that the product will break if not shipped on a pallet, LTL.
- If my facility does not have a loading dock to unload semi-truck, do I have options?
Yes. We can still ship you the product on a pallet. There are two options.
The first is a no-cost option, and that is to have the pallet delivered to the freight carriers' terminal. The carrier will contact you when the pallet has reached their facility and you can pick it up there.
The second option is to add liftgate and/or residential delivery services to the shipment. These services cost extra and are not included with the standard freight charges. Residential Delivery (charge) is independent of Liftgate and is up to the discretion of the freight carrier.
- Are LTL shipments more expensive than Ground?
As with ground shipments, each shipment is different and therefore there is no simple answer. Typically, when orders get large enough to ship on a skid, it is more cost effective to send it via LTL.
- What are the transit times for LTL shipments?
We work with multiple LTL carriers, and each has a different transit time. We will send your shipment via the carrier that will best meet your needs be it cost effective/time sensative.
- Will you ship with the carrier of my choice and/or may I ship using my own account number?
Yes. We can ship with the carrier of your choice and/or bill the freight to your account.
