QUESTION:  My trailer or room specs are 8 1/2 ft. wide can I get away with ordering this 8' flooring?
ANSWER:  First, physically measure the inside floor of your trailer or room.  Occasionally trailers will measure less than 8' wide regardless of the written specs.  If it does measure more than 8' then you may want to consider a wide metal or aluminum trim border to make up for the difference.  Or you may just want to order our larger 12' room width that is available on our site. Note that the larger room width flooring is more expensive to ship as it has to  travel freight and you will have a lot of waste.

QUESTION:  Residential freight shipping for large 12' wide orders is expensive.  Can I ship to a terminal or business near me to save $$?
ANSWER:  Yes, please email us your zip code and we can give you a shipping quote for a business or terminal delivery near you. Please note that both terminal or business addresses are the same shipping price.  Best to find an acquaintance with a business zoned location to save on 12' good shipping rates.

QUESTION:  Why didn't I receive tracking as soon as you notified me of my item being shipped?
ANSWER:  In order to keep our overhead costs low and pass the savings on to you, we can only request tracking information 10 days from the date of your shipping notification. This is due to the small size of our shipping dept. and the high volume of orders we experience.  Since each order is custom cut, we are not set up for automated tracking. Our staff has to manually research tracking. Therefore, the shipping department's policy is to allow ample time to reach your destination first.  If, after 10  business days you have not received your item, then there may  be concern and we will need to track your order.
