Shipping Policy

Here at Universal Iron Doors, we ensure the best possible experience for our clients. The first part of that experience is the consultation where we build and create your Custom Iron Door. However, many companies forget that Iron Doors Delivery is a key part of client satisfaction. Unfortunately, these companies often ship damaged doors. We recognize the frustration that this brings. We go above and beyond to ensure that our Iron Doors are not damaged.


Shipment processing time

All orders are processed within 2-3 business days. Orders are not shipped but might be delivered on weekends or holidays. If we are experiencing a high volume of orders, shipments may be delayed by a few days. Please allow additional days in transit for delivery. If there will be a significant delay in shipment of your order (including for backorders or custom order items), we will contact you via email or telephone.


Shipping rates and delivery estimates

Shipping charges and delivery estimates for your order will be calculated and displayed on your quotation.


Customs, Duties, and Taxes

Universal Iron Doors is not responsible for any customs and taxes applied to your order. All fees imposed during or after shipping are the responsibility of the customer (tariffs, taxes, etc.).


Shipment confirmation and order tracking

You will receive a Shipment Confirmation email once your order has shipped containing your tracking number(s). The tracking number will be active within 24 hours.


Residential Deliveries

Although Universal Iron Doors will include a lift-gate on the residential shipment, it will be required to have a minimum of 3-4 non-disabled persons on-site to unload. While the shipping company might be able to use the lift-gate, it is against LTL Safety Guidelines for them to utilize a lift-gate if there is any overhang. Most products are larger than any standard lift-gate, which requires non-disabled persons on-site to unload from inside of the truck if the driver does not suggest operating the lift-gate.


Commercial Deliveries

For Business/Commercial deliveries, lift-gate is not provided. All products will be delivered curbside, or to a loading dock. If a loading dock is not available, a fork-lift is required.


Customer Responsibilities

The customer is responsible for any costs or fees (including but not limited to storage and re-delivery) that are a result of the failure to take the delivery on the date and time it has been scheduled. The shipping company will contact the customer directly to schedule the delivery. For your comfort, a tracking number and other delivery information will be provided to you once your order ships from our warehouse. After your consent for shipment, if for any reason you cannot accept delivery of the door when it arrives at the indicated terminal near you, you will be responsible for any storage fees charged by the shipping company. Universal Iron Doors will not be able to allow your delivery without collecting those storage fees in advance.


Delivery Payments

It does not need to pay any amount to the delivery staff at the time of delivery or any other time. Universal Iron Doors is responsible for making direct payments to the shipping company. Any payments made by the customer to the shipping company or its agents, for additional or existing services, will be at the customer’s discretion and will not be refunded by Universal Iron Doors under any circumstances.


Change of Delivery Address

Any modifications made to the delivery address must be sent in writing (Email or Fax) to Universal Iron Door’s office up to 2 hours of placing the order.


Invalid Delivery Address

If the delivery address is invalid or inaccessible, the customer accepts to pay the purchase order amount and the additional delivery charges. We strongly recommend picking up the order from the shipping company`s terminal or any location other than the invalid or inaccessible delivery address since Universal Iron Doors will not be responsible for any damages.
