BlowingRockWoodworks' Shop Policies

Welcome

Welcome to Blowing Rock WoodWork's Etsy page! We work with a lot of reclaimed, old growth wood salvaged locally. We design and create handmade furniture out of wood salvaged from old barns, factories, and warehouses deconstructed in the North Carolina Mountains. This wood is anywhere from 100-200 years old and has amazing character to be share for many more years to come.


Blowing Rock WoodWorks also specializes in kitchen items like end grain cutting boards, butcher blocks which are not only beautiful they are very functional. We only use FDA approved non toxic finishes on our food grade products each comes with care instructions and a samples finish that allows you to keep each piece looking brand new.

Shipping


Please Note: We do not send our packages "signature required". If you would like this option, please let us know in advance when your order is placed. Sometimes, even though we ship signature not required, the Fedex driver has the right to leave a call tag instead of the package if they do not feel comfortable leaving the package.

UPS Damage: If your item is damaged during shipment, please contact us within 48 hours of delivery and we will replace your order. 

Shipping via Freight Carrier:
3-7 business days - No weekend or Holiday delivery. Your order will be secured in a custom shipping crate and shipped via Freight Carrier. If your delivery address is classified as Residential, the Carrier will contact you by telephone to schedule a delivery appointment. Without a delivery appointment, the carrier will not deliver to a residential address. Freight Delivery service is “Curbside Delivery”, meaning that service provides delivery to the curb or at the end of your driveway. You should make arrangements (including extra manpower) to move your products to their final location. The driver is not responsible for transporting products beyond Curbside Delivery. Transit times on Freight shipments generally range from 3-7 business days. Delivery dates are estimates and are subject to change. All items 60" or longer will be sent either via a freight carrier or white glove.

Scheduling Your Delivery With The Carrier and Additional Costs:
When the delivery provider receives your order and is ready to schedule a delivery date, they will attempt to contact you at the telephone number that you provided in your order. At that time, they will let you know what days of the week they are able to deliver to your area. Deliveries will be made between the hours of 8am and 10pm on the delivery day you select. The delivery company will call you prior to the scheduled delivery and will provide you with an approximate time window. The delivery company will make every effort to deliver within the time window provided. If no one is available to accept the delivery on the day that has been setup additional fees will apply.

There may be circumstances that require additional payment by you if the conditions mentioned have not been met or you require special services outside of our standard delivery.  **For example, if you need a specified time window, your address is not tractor trailer accessible, you were not available for your scheduled delivery, delivery not made due to unsafe conditions, not indicating missing pieces on the delivery note, etc.

Orders That Don’t Qualify for Free Shipping:

If your delivery address is outside of the United States, you will be responsible for any and all clearance costs, duties, and taxes due on your order. You have the option to specify a Customs Broker. If you choose not to specify a Customs Broker, we will transfer the shipment data to our Preferred Broker. The Broker will contact you to obtain the necessary paperwork and payments. Your order will not clear customs, and your product will not be delivered, until you complete all required documentation. This applies to both Parcel and LTL Freight shipments. You will be responsible for shipping charges if:

-Your delivery address is outside the contiguous United States (e.g. Alaska, Hawaii, Canada, Puerto Rico)

-Your delivery address is classified by the carrier as remote (e.g. Island with limited access, Upper Peninsula of Michigan)

-You request Expedited Shipping

-International Shipping

Expedited Shipping

Expedited service is available on most Parcel shipments and some Freight shipments. If you require Expedited Shipping, you must contact us/notify us at the time of your purchase. There is an additional charge for expedited shipping. The charge will vary depending on the products in your order and your delivery address. Please note that expedited shipping service will not affect the processing time of your order — it will only alter the class of shipping service used.

Expedited Freight service is not available in all areas. We do not ship heavy or fragile products via Parcel due to the likelihood of damage. We do not ship 3rd Party Bill-To on customers’ UPS or FedEx accounts.

Additional Costs

Any additional shipping costs incurred due to negligence or unresponsiveness on the part of the receiver (AKA “Consignee”) will be due to Blowing Rock WoodWorks. prior to delivery. If these costs are not paid, or if the carrier is unable to deliver the shipment for the reasons stated above, your shipment will be treated as a return and rerouted to one of our facilities.

We really prefer not to do this, so please keep in contact with us and/or the carrier so that you receive your order as quickly as possible!
