Methods of Delivery
Because we ship fully assembled structures throughout the east coast and kitted structures throughout the US and around the world, methods of delivery will vary. Please contact our sales staff for a specific method of delivery that would suit your location.

Delivery by Barn Hauling Trailer:
Delivery of fully assembled or kitted structures within a 500 miles radius of our home office, typically are delivered by Barn Hauling Trailer.

All preparatory work of the site and access to the site is the responsibility of the property owner.

The cost of delivery is based upon the distance of your location from our home office:
218B West Main Street

An estimated distance can by calculated using Google Maps, adding 30 miles to their route (for Horse Barns and Run-In Sheds, add 60 miles), and then applying the appropriate per mile rate. Our drivers are not allowed to travel on the turnpike and some other toll roads and therefore the distance calculation by Google Maps is just an ESTIMATE. To prevent excess charges at purchase, the additional mileage, tolls, etc. will be billed upon receipt of trucking company invoice.

Please note that shipping widths vary based upon structure type because the widest point of a structure is at the roofline. If your structure type has an overhang it may ship at a greater width. For example a 10' Wide Quaker will ship as a 12' Wide Structure because of the 2' overhang. Please contact our sales staff to assist with a specific structure type mileage rate.

Delivery of Kitted Structures via Common Carrier:
  1. Shipped Common Carrier to the closest terminal near you. You are responsible to pick it up at the nearest terminal.
  2. Shipped to a Local Business near you that would agree to unload it for you with a forklift. You are responsible for finding the local business.
  3. 3. Shipped direct to your house. This is a more expensive, but more convenient option that the first two options. Please verify that a tractor trailer truck can access your home from the main road. Also you will need persons capable of hand unloading piece by piece and packaging material. Please note the driver will NOT assist in unloading the kit. If the size of your kit is 4'x 7 1/2' lift gate service is available upon request. Lift gates allow entire unit dropped off by the driver. There is an additional $75 fee for the lift gate.
  4. 4. Please be sure to inspect your kitted structure when it arrives. Please contact the sales office PRIOR to assembly if any part is missing or damaged. Since we are subject to Common carrier claims department procedures the following must be done in case of damaged packaging or product:
  5. Notation of either damaged packaging/product must be written on the document you sign for acceptance. If there is a box or category stating, "Wrap intact? Please check or note NO. Note: driver may want to leave before inspection is complete. If so, make sure you note this on the delivery acceptance paperwork.
  6. Please take pictures of the damage and forward to Lancaster County Barns via email within 3 days of receiving shipment.

    Onsite Installation and Assembly:
    When site access will not allow for the width of your structure to be delivered fully assembled, we offer Onsite Installation and Assembly services via WeCare Logistics. It is your responsibility to provide a level foundation or WeCare Logistics will not be able to perform installation and assembly. The cost of their return trip will be your responsibility. Any additions or changes to your structure during installation and assembly must go through the Lancaster County Barns sales office. If the kit components need to be carried more than 50 yards, there will be an additional labor charge of $45 per man per hour ($45 min). A charge of $100 will apply on all installations above a 3' grade.

    Exchanges and Returns of Fully Assembled Structures:
    STRUCTURES will NOT be exchanged or returned the day of your delivery.(See Special Note on Goods Damaged in Shipment)

    If it is determined that the shed needs to be returned to Lancaster County Barns due to an error that cannot be corrected by Lancaster County Barns at your location, the structure will be placed in a designated spot on your property until a date for pick up is determined. In the event a new structure is coming as an exchange, the pick up will take place the day the new structure is delivered. In some cases this can take up to 4 weeks. In the event it has been determined another structure will not be in its place, the structure will be picked up at our first open schedule date.

    Special Note on Goods Damaged in Shipment
    Be sure to inspect your shipment as soon as it arrives. If the product has been damaged during shipment, you must contact Lancaster County Barns while the Delivery Company is at your location. Failure to do so will result in additional fees to facilitate return of the damaged goods or damage will be your responsibility to repair.

    Lancaster County Barns is NOT responsible for the following

  7. Site preparation: An existing level site is required to set your structure properly. If your site is not level your doors will not operate properly and the overall structure will not hold its integrity while settling.

  8. Blocking materials: Your structure unloads from the end of the trailer. When setting up blocks keep in mind that we need to back onto the site to unload. Blocking should not extend out of the ground more than 6" in center or on the end the truck is backing in from. (See note below on concrete blocks and piers.)

  9. Minor blocking and leveling of structure: (Drivers responsibility if your site is prepared properly)

  10. Site accessibility: (Power lines, trees, tree branches, rocks, fences, posts, mailboxes, other buildings, and anything in the way of the truck or placement are your responsibility to move.) Prior to delivery, please clear the path to your structure's foundation. Doing so will help cut down time on station expenses. NOTE: If site is inaccessible, for any reason, our driver may unload your structure as close the intended site as conditions permit. This is called a CURBSIDE DELIVERY. The truck and driver must be able to drive out from under the structure.

  11. Property damage: Resulting from inaccessibility, soft ground, trees, wells, septic systems, etc..

  12. Ground conditions: The ground must be hard enough for the delivery company to drive on to accomplish the job. Therefore, if the truck/trailer gets stuck, you will be responsible for the tow truck expense.

    Time on Station/Setting your Structure
    If the structure requires any of the following:
    • Additional time (anything over 1/2 hr is considered additional time) to straighten/level/block to the best of our ability with the drop site provided.
    • Setting the structure in an alternate location as a result of poor access.
    • Reloading to move the structure to another location
    In any of the above situations, the time incurred will be billed at $50 per hour.

    If site access turns out to be an unforeseen problem for you or setting the structure requires additional equipment such as, but not limited to, a back loader/forklift/crane, because we do not provide these services, we will set the structure in a different spot at the drop site. Given the approval of the Delivery Company, only structures that are 8' wide may be returned the same day. You will be charged whatever mileage the trucker incurs to return the structure at the current delivery rate.
    (Note: Some structures cannot be moved with the above equipment listed)

    In the event the truck cannot access your desired site, structures 12' x 12' and under can usually be rolled with schedule 40 PVC pipes short distances. If you believe this may be your situation please contact me and have at least 3 people at the site to aid in placement. The truck driver will be the fourth person. There is a $35.00 fee to use the rollers plus time on station over and above the hour setting time. Please note: ROLLING CANNOT BE DONE ON INCLINES OR SLOPES.

    Concrete Blocks / Piers
    If your structure is 10' x 12' or under you can set it on concrete blocks, blocking should not extend more than 6" out of the ground. In order to avoid a large step into the shed, we recommend you use 2" or 4" concrete blocks or dig the blocking into the ground near ground level.

    If concrete piers are used they should also not extend more than 6" out of the ground. These are commonly used in larger buildings according to local town building codes. Please note that if the structure is delivered fully assembled, piers need to be spaced so the truck is not backing over them.

    Concrete blocks are not recommended if the truck cannot back up straight to the short side of the pad. In this case crushed stone is a better option.
