Delivery Fees Structures receive free delivery within 50 miles of our location. If outside of 50 miles the rate is $3.50 per mile (after the first 50 miles).
If the structure cannot be placed anywhere else at the drop site, and must be returned, the customer will be charged for the return shipping cost. If the drivers schedule allows and the structure can be placed at a location other than the intended drop site, the customer will be charged $3.50 per mile and any tolls, permits and/or additional fees incurred for the trip. The customer will then be completely responsible for placement of the structure and releases Thee Amish Structures from any and all liability and damages to the structure or to the owners property that may result from moving the structure by such or similar equipment. Delivery fee estimates for sheds, garages, horse barns, run-ins, and gazebos can be provided and re'est point) will require a certified escort, which incurs additional fees. This includes 12' wide quakers, horse stall barns, run-ins as they have a 1' to 2' overhang, and 12' Deluxe structures.
Hauling Permit Fees Our drivers require Special Hauling Permits for PA and NY, and depending on the size of the structure and/or road traveled, several permits may be required. Fees for these permits will be included in your delivery as well as tolls and any fuel surcharges.
Certified Escort Fees A certified escort vehicle is required for any structure measuring 12'1" to 14' wide in overall width. This includes 12' wide quakers, 12' Deluxe sheds, horse stall barns & run-in sheds as they have a 1' to 2' overhang. Escort vehicle fees are included in delivery.

SITE ACCESS & PREPARATION
Site Access Most structures will be delivered to your location via a full size pick-up truck and 22'- 32' flatbed trailer. Larger structures, and most 2-Story double wides will require access by tractor trailer. Structures will be set up at your location. Site preparation and any needed permits are the responsibility of the property owner. Site must be accessible at the time of delivery. If site is not accessible at time of delivery, the customer will be charged for the return trip to the builder as well as another set of delivery charges to return the building back to the customer.
To insure that your structure can be delivered to the location you intended for it, please consider all ground-level and aerial obstacles when choosing that location. The clearance to the site should be several feet wider than the structure unless it is a straight line in across level ground. Please be conscious of low hanging branches, wires, or any other aerial obstructions that the building could hit or snag. The total height of building and trailer can not exceed 13' 6". Please also be aware of fences, posts, large rocks, mailboxes, or anything that can block the path of the delivery truck and trailer or impede the placement of your structure. Any obstacle is your responsibility to move or remove. We can help you decide if your location is accessible by doing a site check, or by getting a complete description of the area you want your structure placed including digital photos showing us the point of access, and the path to your proposed site. If site cannot be accessed at time of delivery due to obstacles such as those described above, our driver may unload the barn as close the intended site as these circumstances allow. The structure unloads from the end of the trailer, and the driver must be able to drive out from under the structure. Pulling out from under the structure where the truck and trailer are at extreme angles ("jack-knife"), could result in unsafe conditions and/or damage to your structure. Our guys are good drivers and they can deliver in tight spots but they are not miracle workers!
Site Preparation The site that you choose should be reasonably level and in a well-drained area. If the area needs leveling, we recommend putting down a stone pad using Item #4 or #2 Crusher Run. For larger structures (anything over 12'x16'), especially garages, WE HIGHLY RECOMMEND THAT YOU HIRE A PROFESSIONAL TO DO THE JOB FOR YOU WHO IS EXPERIENCED IN BUILDING PADS FOR THIS PURPOSE. This will help to protect your investment by insuring a properly built foundation for your structure.
If you choose not to hire a professional and decide to make the pad yourself, the usual depth is about 4" with more in low spots. Make the pad a foot wider than the dimensions of the structure. You can also build a box to house the stone out of pressure-treated 4x4s or 6x6s. Tamp the stone down until very firm, compacted and level. This is very important. A firm, level pad will insure less settling over time and provide the even support the heavy building requires. The larger the building, the more essential this becomes, as the larger buildings must rest evenly on a firm, level surface. Again, we highly recommend hiring a professional to do the job for you who is experienced in building pads for this purpose. Additional set-up fees will apply if the pad is soft and/or not level and it takes Thee Amish Structures delivery personnel additional time attempting to fix the unlevel and/or soft pad so that it will adequately support the structure.
A poorly prepared foundation may void any implied warranty.
Thee Amish Structures is NOT responsible for the following:
Site Preparation - see Site Preparation Any needed building permits - The customer is responsible for obtaining permits Leveling of structure if the site is not properly prepared. The driver may assist with minor leveling of the structure if the site is prepared properly.
Site Access/Lawn Damage: Low hanging wires, clotheslines, trees, tree branches, fences, posts, large rocks, mailboxes, or anything that can block the path of the delivery truck and trailer or impede the placement of your structure, are your responsibility to move or remove. We cannot be held responsible for any property damage resulting from soft ground or damage to trees, bushes, wells, septic systems, etc. Be sure to tell our driver where any underground issues are. We will be as careful as possible during the delivery but minor damage can occur such as divots, tire tracks, broken low hanging branches, etc. If you feel that your ground is too soft for a heavy truck and trailer to go over due to heavy rains or spring thaw, please contact us so that we can postpone your delivery until the ground hardens. As for wells and septic systems, we will not travel over these items with our heavy truck and trailer, so please be sure that the path to your site is clear.
Warranty All our structures have a 5 year limited craftsmanship warranty. It is the customers responsibility to use the structure as is intended. If a customer chooses to alter the structure and causes damage doing so, the warranty will be void and Thee Amish Structures nor its builders, will be responsible for damages that may occur. Thee Amish Structures extends this limited warranty only to the original purchaser. This warranty shall NOT extend to any subsequent purchaser or transferee.
Thee Amish Structures cannot be held responsible for acts of God, or defects resulting from abuse, negligence, misuse or lack of proper maintenance. Winds above 60mph, are considered acts of God and any damages caused to one of our structures will not be covered.
Warranty claims must be accompanied by the customers original sales receipt or proof of purchase. Thee Amish Structures must be notified within 30 days of finding the defect. Failure to do so will void the warranty.
Returns ALL SALES ARE FINAL - Structures cannot be exchanged or returned unless it arrives to the delivery site severely damaged. Minor damage that can be repaired on-site will be repaired by the delivery personnel or arrangements will be made for someone else to come to your site and repair the damage in a timely manner. The structure cannot be returned for any reason other than severe damage. It isn't common, but there are times that some shingles may come off in transport, or the paint gets scratched during delivery. If a small problem like this occurs, don't worry, we'll fix it for you. If that is not possible (maybe the part needed isn't readily available) we will order the item and repair the damage when we receive it.
Items Damaged in Shipment Be sure to inspect your shipment upon arrival. If the structure has been damaged during shipment, you must contact Thee Amish Structures while the delivery personnel are still at your location. Failure to do so will result in you being responsible for additional fees associated with arranging for the return of the damaged items or the damage will be your responsibility to repair.
WE DO NOT GUARANTEE EXACT DELIVER TIMES! We will let you know what day to expect your structure, however the exact time cannot be guaranteed. We give all our customers the same service and we will not rush deliveries. Thee Amish Structures reserves the right to reschedule any delivery due to inclement weather, unforeseen equipment failure, route restrictions, etc.
Cancellation Fee Schedule Cancellation up 3 business days after date of order = 100% of deposit/payment refundable. Cancellation after the 4th business day after date of order = 0% of deposit/payment nonrefundable. The order has already been placed with the builder and the structure is considered sold. An order cannot be cancelled after it ships from the builder
ORDER TURNAROUND Delivery of our structures varies depending on the season. Our busiest times are late spring through mid-October. When you place your order, we will have a better idea of exactly what the wait time is. Order turnaround times are not guaranteed and are dependent on several factors which include, but are not limited to: the builder, building material and inventory availability, and trucking schedules. To keep trucking costs down, structures will not be released from the builder until a minimum of 48' of structures are ready to be delivered. This may cause a delivery delay of 1-2 weeks. We appreciate your understanding, and you may check on your order status anytime by calling us at (607) 257-1070 or by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
