Shipping Policy


The only orders which can be placed online right now are for local pickup (FOB Mercer, ME), or hand delivery which is offered on orders being hand delivered within 250 driving miles of Mercer, ME. Please confirm availability of items being ordered before showing up! Items are not always in stock!

Unless you select in store pickup, or hand delivery, you will NOT be able to pay for your order at this point. Orders requiring a shipping quote will be processed within 1 business day. Please wait until we email you a shipping quote, at which point you may proceed through the checkout process if you wish to proceed with your order.

Many items are MADE TO ORDER! When you request a shipping quote, delivery, or in store pickup, we will inform you of the lead times. During our peak summer months lead times can often be up to 10 weeks for some items! Please plan ahead!

Lumber can be expensive and difficult to ship. You may find that shipping small quantities of lumber is cost prohibitive vs. buying the items from a local lumber supply store. We try our best to deliver and ship our products at the lowest rates possible, but please understand, there simply is no easy way to send a 17’ long, 5000 lbs crate from Maine to California for under $900! Please don’t get frustrated when the shipping might cost more than your actual items. 

  • LOCAL PICKUP: Local pickup is always free. Please see our contact us page for pickup hours and directions to our mill. Please confirm availability of items being ordered before showing up for pickup! Items are not always in stock!
  • DELIVERY: If you are less than 250 miles from our mill, hand delivery can be calculated during checkout. We will notify you if LTL shipping is a better or more cost effective choice vs. hand delivery. For example, while we technically can deliver to NH and VT, shipping LTL is sometimes a more cost effective method.
  • SHIPPING: If hand delivery is not available, or you prefer to have your order shipped, choose “Get a Shipping Quote” and we will get a quote back to you within 1 business day.

You will not be charged until you have seen and approved the shipping quote we will provide.
