Your floor will typically be delivered via common carrier, such as Yellow Freight or Roadway. These trucks are about 36 feet long, so please keep in mind that the truck will need to access your home or job site, park, and be able to turn around. If you think there might be difficulty with this, please let us know and we’ll be happy to make other trucking arrangements to deliver your floor.
Each floor manufactured by Heidelberg Wood Flooring is thoroughly inspected by our quality control engineers.

Heidelberg Wood Flooring is not responsible for any visible defects or costs incurred for replacements or repair of materials after installation.
