How Is Brick It Product Shipped? What Are The Shipping Methods?

Shipping method will depend on the order. Samples and small orders will be shipped using Parcel like UPS or FedEx, most common orders will ship on pallets using LTL (less than a truck load) companies and larger orders over 20,000 lb. will be shipped using trucks. We also have a capability to use Railroad and Sea Containers. Air shipping is rarely used due to the product weight.

 

Like any other construction delivery service, most deliveries are limited to a “curb site” only.
