Shipping – Delivery Information
Eco Stone offers shipping in the metropolitan area of Cleveland up to

Due to volume and weight, orders will be shipped on a pallet with a LTL freight carrier (LTL= Less than Truck Load). Delivery of products that are in stock is estimated to be around 2-4 business days, depending on the location to which the order is shipped. By default the shipments are booked with curbside delivery. We will send you a tracking number (PRO number) when the shipment is picked up from our warehouse by the freight carrier.Delivery of products that are not in stock is estimated to be around 2-3 business weeks, depending on the location to which the order is shipped.
Freight shipping cost
The freight shipping cost is calculated at the checkout of our store on an
order by order basis, and is dependent on delivery zip code and the weight of
the order. By default the shipments are booked as curbside delivery. Flat
shipment rate per pallet 90$, to commercial Cleveland local address. Shipment
rate to residential address based on carrier estimation.
Tips to save on shipping cost
The weight on the pallet is only a minor factor in the calculation of the freight rate. Depending on the type of stone a pallet can hold up to 48 boxes of Ecostone (approx. 350 square feet of stones or 600 square feet of bricks). Where shipping 10 cartons across the country can be rather expensive in comparison to the cost of the product, shipping 48 boxes will result in only a slightly higher shipping rate.
Tip 1: It can be very beneficial to order for more projects at once. You may consider to do more walls than you originally planned to do, order for a future project right away, order different stones/colors for different walls, or order for friends and family as well.
Tip 2: Order one or two cartons extra after you already added a 10% extra for cuts and trimming. Some panels might get damaged during transport, cutting, trimming, and installation. A subsequent order of one or two cartons is highly expensive to ship and your project comes to a hold while waiting for the extra stone veneer. It is recommended to have some spare stones laying around for future repairs and alterations (e.g. replacing a electrical outlet)
Tip 3: Their is also the option of local pick up at our Warrensville Hts, OH warehouse. We only charge you a $35 handling fee. Please contact us if you want to use this option.
