Shipping & Handling

  • What are your online shipping rates?

    • Any return shipping costs are the sole responsibility of the customer. Once our distribution center has received the product, allow up to 48 hours to process the return. The Tile Shop will then issue the customer the refund for returned product based on the original form of payment. 

    • Our minimum shipping rate is dependent on the type of material being shipped and can range from $12 to $60, going upwards based on the total weight of the shipment.

    • We will ship materials to any Tile Shop store for in-store pickup from said store’s primary distribution center free of charge. Contact your local Tile Shop as the timing of receipt of material may be extended. Any expedited shipping requests will incur an additional charge.

  • What if I need to change my shipping address for an online order?

    If you have already placed your order you will need to contact a Tile Shop representative to change your shipment address. Any changes made to the provided shipping address once your order is in route will result in additional freight fees that are the sole responsibility of the customer--this includes requesting the material being shipped to a local store after the material has already been shipped. Please contact Customer Service for more details.

  • What if I want my order to be shipped to a secondary address?

    • In order to protect both our customers and ourselves, orders being shipped to a secondary shipping address (differs from your billing information) are required to pass an address verification before we can ship materials. If you have not already done so, please contact your credit card company and request to add a memo prior to placing the order and provide this secondary shipping address.
    • Failure to comply with this policy may result in delayed shipments until this verification passes.
    • Once a shipping address has passed the address verification with your credit card company, we will not need to do this process again for additional orders placed in the same year shipping to that address.

  • Will all of my product arrive at the same time?

    We will always do our best to ship orders in full, however select items may be shipped separately at times. A Tile Shop representative will communicate with you about product arrival times both to the showroom or with delivery to your home. Should there be backordered product on order, a Customer Service representative will be in touch to provide next steps.

  • How do I know if a product is backordered or out of stock?

    While we try to keep our website's product availability information as up-to-date as possible, it is possible that an item will become backordered and still be available for purchase through the site. A Customer Service representative will be in touch to provide more information about the backordered material.

  • How long does it take to ship my online order?

    • Materials that are in stock at our distribution center are shipped out within 1-2 business days from order date. Delivery time is normally estimated between 3-5 business days.

    • Shipping times can be delayed if there are backordered items on your order. A Customer Service representative will update you with any inventory issues.

    • We strongly recommend you do not schedule installation until you have received and inspected your products as there can be unforeseen delays including shipping delays due to weather, breakage, etc.

    • The Tile Shop cannot be held liable for failure to meet scheduled install dates due to delivery.

    • Delivery dates are approximate and cannot be promised under any circumstance.

    • Curbside freight deliveries will require an appointment, which are scheduled directly with the assigned carrier.

  • Can I track my order?

    The tracking information is typically available the day following shipment and is forwarded to the email address you provide. If you have specific questions about your shipment, please call Customer Service at 888-398-6595

  • What should I expect when my tile is delivered?

    • Depending on the size and quantity of materials shipped, items will be shipped via FedEx or LTL freight service.

    • Delivery service is ground service.

    • FedEx shipments will be delivered to the address supplied and may require a signature for delivery.

    • LTL freight shipments are curbside deliveries.

    • Someone is responsible to be at the residence upon delivery and sign for materials.

    • Any pallets of material are delivered at ground level.

    • The shipping company will not physically move or carry product.

  • What is curbside delivery?

    Larger tile shipments are secured to a pallet and delivered by freight carrier. For residential deliveries, an appointment is required with the carrier and the shipment is delivered at the edge of the property or "curbside." The shipping company will not physically move or carry product at time of delivery.
