After Placing Order

Depending on the warehouse your cabinets are shipping from and the freight company, most transit times to your local freight terminal will be 1-6 business days. After your order arrives at your local terminal, the freight company will contact you (at the number you entered with your shipping address) to schedule the exact delivery day.

Credit card authorization is needed before an order can be processed so your credit card will be charged when your order is placed.

Most Ready-to-Assemble orders will ship in 3-15 business days.

In some cases, there will be certain items out of stock. If this is the case, we will notify you and let you know when it will be in stock. Then you will have the option to:

1) Ship all in-stock items right away and the out-of-stock item(s) when they come in. You may be responsible for additional shipping charges

2) Wait until all items are in, then ship complete

3) Cancel the out of stock item(s)

4) Switch the out of stock item(s) to another item that is in stock and ship the order (ex: switch a 15″ drawer base to a regular 15″ base, or a 21×30 wall cabinet to a 18×30 wall cabinet with a 3” filler). If the items being changed result in a higher cost, you would be responsible for the difference and if they are a lesser cost, you would receive a refund for that amount.

Damages / Defects

You will have 5 days to open all cabinet/accessory boxes and inspect for any damages, defects, or missing items. After your order ships, you will receive a shipment confirmation email that will detail how to inspect your order, please look out for this email. You will also receive a phone call with this information. If anything is missing, damaged, and/or defective, please notify us within 5 days.

No, if any cabinets are damaged, please do not assemble these cabinets. The pictures needed by our claims department must be unassembled cabinets. Due to manufacturer guidelines, replacement parts will not be issued for cabinets that are already assembled because the manufacturer does not know the damage did not occur during assembly. Please leave any damaged cabinets unassembled until customer service lets you know it is ok to proceed with assembly.

No, do not refuse any damaged items, just note the damages on the shipping paperwork the driver has, have them sign and make sure you receive a copy. Please make sure to contact us within 5 days. The cabinet manufacturer reserves the right to determine the most cost-effective and efficient method to correct damaged items as a result of manufacturer defect or freight/shipping damage. This may not involve a total cabinet/accessory replacement. For example, a cabinet with a damaged door may receive a new door only – not an entirely new cabinet. ​

If they are returned to the wrong location, unfortunately, we won’t be able to replace the damaged parts for no charge. If there are freight damages, please hold on to the damaged items until the freight company concludes the claim process. This will not delay the processing and shipment of your replacement parts, however in order for us to file a claim with the freight company for any damages that incurred in transit, they retain the right to inspect the damaged items at their request. Damaged items should be kept until we notify you that they can be disposed of, for some carriers, this can be up to 120 days from the day the claim is made. Please do not dispose of any damages before given permission to do so, if a carrier requests to see damages and they’re no longer available, you may be responsible for paying for the replacement parts that were shipped out.

It is very important to look for any damages to the outside of the boxes upon your delivery. If any damages are visible, mark this on the shipping paperwork the driver has and be sure they sign and give you a copy (do not refuse any damaged items).​ Please also take a photo documenting the way the shipment was received.​ Many times the contents will not be damaged even if the box is, but if you find any parts of the cabinets to be damaged, please report it immediately to NelsonKB.com​ ​prior to assembly (unless the item shipped pre-assembled)​.​ ​​You will have​ ​5 days to open all cabinet/accessory boxes and inspect for any damages, defects, or missing items.

If replacements parts are needed, Blue Shaker Cabinets is only responsible for providing those parts. Unfortunately, we will not be able to reimburse any additional costs of labor incurred by the customer to replace or repair damaged cabinets.

Depending on the damage, in most cases, a replacement part will be sent, not an entire new cabinet. NelsonKB reserves the right to determine the most cost-effective and efficient method to correct damaged and/or defective cabinets/accessories. For example, if a door is cracked, you would receive a new door, not a whole new cabinet.

Don’t worry! There’s no need to return a damaged order, we will be able to get you the replacement parts/cabinets that are needed (please see What if something on my order is damaged?). If you decide to return your entire order it would be treated as a regular return and you would be responsible for the return shipping and a 30% restocking fee. The initial shipping charge would not be able to be refunded. We will also need the delivery paperwork that noted the damage (paperwork the delivery driver provided you).

The claims can be filed through a freight company.

General Order Questions

Yes – If your order is shipping with a freight company, you must be home for the delivery. After placing your order, customer service will email you a shipment confirmation which includes all your shipping information. Once the order arrives at your local freight terminal, the freight company will contact you to schedule the delivery date that is convent to you. You will know exactly when to expect them.

No – If your order is shipped with Ground shipping, no one needs to be home, the package(s) will be left just like any other package delivered by the mail service.

We accept MasterCard, Visa, Discover, American Express, PayPal, Bank Checks and Money Orders.

Please contact customer service immediately if you need to change your shipping address. If a shipping address is changed after an order ships or if an address was entered incorrectly on an order and needs to be changed after shipment, most freight companies will charge a fee. We will contact the freight company ASAP if your order has already shipped and find out if there are any fees involved. We will do our best to eliminate or reduce any fees, but if the freight company charges for the change, you would be responsible for these charges.

If you need to cancel or make changes to your order, please let customer service know within 24 hours of placing your order. After 24 hours changes/cancellations may not be able to be made without incurring fees since your order may have already begun the packing process to prep for shipping. While we will try our best to accommodate any requests, many times, door sample orders will not be able to be changed/canceled since most will ship the same day you place your order.

IMPORTANT PLEASE READ:

We recommend that at least 2 people be present at time of delivery since our cabinets are solid and heavy!

There should be no external damage to the packages. You are responsible for inspecting the freight for external damage while the driver is still present.  

In the event of damage, you must make note with the delivery driver. Please note the damage on the delivery receipt and contact us immediately.  If parts appear to be missing please contact us immediately. We will ship any missing part(s) in a timely manner. Inspection consists of boxes that show obvious breakage, tears or rips in the outer packaging.

If you find any freight damage after the driver leaves it is your responsibility to file a claim with the freight company.

If the delivery driver refuses your inspection of shipment, please note the following on the delivery receipt:
“POSSIBLE CONCEALED DAMAGE, DRIVER WILL NOT ALLOW ME TO EXAMINE FREIGHT” then sign where required. We recommend taking a photo of this signed portion for your records.

Acceptance of shipment and signing the delivery receipt by you or your representative/s is an acknowledgment that your merchandise was delivered in a satisfactory condition and you are releasing the freight company and NelsonKB.com from all damage claims

It is extremely important that you do a piece count and make sure all ordered pieces are there (unless you’ve been informed of any back order stock items). Some pieces may be packaged together, i.e. crown molding, fillers, etc. If you can, open any accessory boxes while the driver is there to make sure all pieces are accounted for, if you’re not able to, mark the Bill of Lading (BOL – shipping paperwork that the driver has) that you weren’t able to verify the piece count in that specific box. If there is anything missing, it must be noted on the BOL. Make sure to get a copy of the BOL with the driver’s signature and that the driver has a copy noting any shortages, we will need a copy sent to us to process your replacement order. If shortages are not noted on the BOL, we will not be able to reship these items free of charge.

In addition to doing a piece count, you want to check each box for visible damage. The trucking company is required to let you check the outside of each box. You do not need to open each box, just check over the outside for cracks, dents, holes, etc… If the driver tells you they will not wait for you to check over the boxes, call the trucking company and explain that you need to note any visible damage on the BOL and the driver is giving you a hard time (this is not very common). The number to the trucking company will be on the BOL. The boxes are checked in the warehouses before being shipped out, however, as soon as the trucking company picks up your order, they are responsible for any damages that occur in transit and will only approve replacements if the damages are noted on the shipping paperwork (Bill of Lading – BOL) on your delivery.

If shipping to a residential address, it is a curbside, end of truck delivery. Curbside, meaning the delivery will be made either at the curb or in your driveway, depending on what the driver deems the easiest and safest way to deliver your order. End of truck, meaning the driver is only responsible for moving the pallet to the end of the truck. From that point, it is the customer’s responsibility to unload the pallet piece by piece (NOTE: this is a perfect time to do a piece count and inspect each box for damage).

The liftgate is like an ‘elevator’ on the back of the freight truck that lowers the pallet onto the curb. You would then unload the pallet from the curb as opposed to the back of the truck. Certain orders will not be able to use a lift gate due to the size of the pallets used for delivery. If your order is able to utilize a lift gate, it will be automatically included on your delivery free of charge!

Many cabinets will be very large and heavy (in excess of 50 lbs) so having 1 or 2 additional people to help is highly recommended. The delivery drivers work for the freight companies (not NelsonKB.com) and for insurance purposes, are not able to assist in unloading any cabinets so he or she would not be able to help during this process.
