Shipping Rates & Information

SAME DAY SHIPPING

All in-stock items will ship on the same day from Backyardplus.com in San Luis Obispo, California, or from one of our network partners when ordered before 1:30 pm West Coast Time (shipping days are M-F). In most cases, any parts not in stock at the time of order will ship within (2) business days or less. We’ll notify you the next business day with an estimated ship date. 

BACKORDERS, SPECIAL ORDERS, & PARTIAL SHIPMENT

Our warehouse orders and receives daily shipments from the manufacturer. If an item that is not a special order (ex: filter lids, equipment doors, etc.) becomes a backordered item, we will notify you as soon as possible to discuss your options. 1.) We can cancel the backordered item and ship the remainder of your order; 2.) We can hold the entire order and ship it once the backordered item becomes available; 3.) In some cases, we may do a partial shipment which will be at the discretion of Backyardplus.com. It is not our policy to partially ship an order, but in some cases we make exceptions. Please contact our Customer Care department to discuss (805) 541-9000. Additional shipping fees may apply.

DAMAGED OR LOST PACKAGES

Please contact our Customer Care department if your package arrives damaged or appears to be lost. In the event of a lost package, 99% of the time, the package was received by another person living at the address, a neighbor or the carrier attempted to conceal the package so that it was not easily visible for porch pirates. Please verify the shipping address on your email confirmation and contact our Customer Care department (805) 541-9000.
In the event of a damaged package, please contact us immediately so that we may rectify the situation. We may ask for photos so that we can put in a claim with the carrier.
