Q: How long is shipping?

Q: How will my fountain ship?

A: Your fountain will be fully boxed or crated, and will arrive via a freight line with a lift gate.

Q: What does curbside delivery mean?

A: We offer free shipping, but delivery will be curbside only. This means that the carrier will take the order off the truck at your curb, but will not move it into place or install it. Delivery up a driveway, or anywhere besides the curb is considered an inside delivery and would require additional fees. To see if that is an available option for you, you can email us at info@thesoothingcompany.com
