Urban Surfaces will make every attempt to find a carrier that can complete the delivery if notified prior to shipping.

On Delivery Day
Before signing the delivery receipt accepting an order, please follow these guidelines.
When the order arrives, ensure the quantities match the ordered amount. To guarantee customer satisfaction, please make note of the following when receiving an order:
- Check that the right product is being delivered
- Check that the correct quantity is being delivered
- Check that all materials are in good condition
On the pallet delivered, there will be 2 documents taped to the outside.
- Bill of Lading (BOL) – The number on the BOL should match the # on the paperwork that the driver has as a Proof Of Delivery.
- Summary Sheet – This details what material is on the pallet.
For Southern California deliveries, an electronic signature will be required.
Once unloaded, it is recommended that the flooring material is stored in the location where it is to be installed. This will serve two purposes: 1) it will allow the flooring material to acclimate and 2) it will reduce the number of times that the flooring is moved. Boxes of flooring material can weigh up to 50 lbs. depending on the product.
DO NOT let the driver leave until it is fully verified that the material received is in good condition and that all material has been accounted for. Any damaged or missing items must be noted on the delivery receipt. If not noted, it increases the amount of time required to seek resolution.
The customer will be liable for any additional delivery fees incurred after materials leave the facility for reasons including but not limited to:
- Destination address changes
- Undeliverable material (customer not available to receive)
