Shipping and Delivery

Common Carrier

On items that can be shipped via common carrier, you may select either UPS or USPS.

UPS will not ship to P.O. boxes.  If shipping to a business, please include the business name. Standard UPS deliveries occur Monday through Friday, while Saturday delivery is available through USPS. If you require express shipping or Saturday UPS delivery, please call us at 734-483-6980 for a revised shipping quote.

Please note that UPS and USPS will not insure antique items.

Freight Delivery

Items that cannot be purchased through our website (larger or fragile items, etc.) require special handling and will go through a 3rd party. Please contact us for a shipping quote and/or to make arrangements for delivery. 

You will need to provide us with a destination address, if it’s going to a business or residence, and if a lift gate will be required.

Be aware that once the item is no longer in our possession we do not have control over how it is being handled.  We recommend that you inspect the packaging before signing for it.  Please notify us immediately if you have any questions or concerns. You will pay the shipping charges directly with the 3rd party shipper.

Of course, accidents can happen and, although rare, sometimes damage can occur. If an item is damaged in shipping, customers should contact Materials Unlimited and/or 3rd party insurers immediately.  To the best of our ability, Materials Unlimited will repair or replace damaged items.
