Shipping and Delivery Information




All in-stock orders will follow a standard lead time of up to 10 business days, plus freight transit time. This lead time may be extended in the event of any revisions to the original order by the customer or backordered items. Once your order leaves our warehouse, you will receive an email containing tracking information for your shipment. The freight company will call 24 hours in advance to schedule your delivery appointment and ensure that someone is available to accept the shipment. We recommend the buyer does not schedule installation until product is received.


***All LTL deliveries unless stated otherwise are delivered curbside with liftgate.  Drivers are not required to bring the shipment indoors.  Some drivers will assist, but it is not required of them.  Be sure that help is available at time of delivery.

*Please note* Free shipping is only available within the contiguous U.S. on unassembled (RTA) orders of $3500 or more (Post-Discount) shipping from one warehouse.  Due to Covid-19, LTL shipping rates have skyrocketed.  If internal LTL freight costs exceed $800 on any single order, the additional costs will be passed along to the customer as a "Shipping Fee" in their invoice.   

Assembled orders will be subject to additional shipping charges.

Orders shipping from two different warehouses will incur a $225.98 fee. 

Orders in a single door style will qualify for free shipping if they exceed a $3,500 sub-total. If an order is comprised of multiple door styles, additional shipping may apply if the items ordered are not from the same manufacturer. Free shipping may not be eligible on large cabinet orders exceeding 35 total cabinets due to carrier freight volume restrictions, an additional shipping surcharge may apply. If ordering for a multi-unit project or your order contains multiple cabinet door styles, please email us at info@RTADirect.com for freight quote assistance. 

Please also note, all delivery charges (including free delivery) are to non-surcharged areas by surface shipment within the U.S. contiguous 48 states only. In rare instances, areas impose surcharges on commercial vehicles, such as certain metropolitan areas, areas accessible by ferry, etc. You will be responsible for any of these surcharges or additional charges. You will be contacted for authorization prior to delivery.
