DAVIDSAN’S SHIPPING/ PACKING CHARGES
We ship your trees via FedEx Home (if to a residence), or FedEx Ground (if to a commercial business). The cost to you is a percentage of the purchase you make.
30% up to $300 tree purchase amount
25% if your purchase is $301- $500
20% if your purchase is over $500
NOTE: Trees over 6 feet tall may be subject to an additional FedEx Oversize charge of $50. Extra, extra tall trees may be subject to an additional FedEx Oversize charge of $100 or more. If you are making an especially large order, we will talk about shipping FedEx Freight. Call us. wE CAN NOW SHIP TO THE WEST COAST BUT UNDER THE FOLLOWING CONDITIONS
I AM CHANGING MY RULES ON SHIPPING TO WEST COAST . YOU NOW CAN HAVE IT DONE TWO WAYS . WE CAN SHIP PERSOANLLY FROM DAVIDSAN NOT THRU MY BUSINESS . OR WE CAN SHIP TOM ANYONE WHO YOU CHOOSE FAMILY OR FRIEND THAT CAN RESHIP TO YOU. bOTH ARE A BIT MORE COSTLY TO SHIP BUT YOU CAN GET TREES YOU CANNOT GET OUT THERE .. WE WILL LIMIT THIS TO SMALLER TREES 5 GAL AND UNDER SO AS THE PACKAGE WON’T LOOK TREE LIKE.
THE REASONING BEHIND OUR RELUCTANCE TO SHIP OUT THERE ARE THE QUITE ONEROUS REGULATIONS TO LEGALLY DO SO SUCH AS BARE ROOTING AND DIPPING IN REALLY HARSH DANGEROUS CHEMICALS… AS A BUSINESS IT IS JUST TOO MUCH AND TOO DANGEROUS TO OUR STAFF.
IF THE ABOVE IS DOABLE FOR YOU PLEASE LET ME KNOW. BUT SHIP COST WILL BE UNKNOWN TIL PACKED SO DON’T ASK BUT IT WILL HIGHER THAN OUR CURENT SHIPPING COSTS.
Due to our location in the center of the U.S.of A., our shipment time of only two to three days almost anywhere in the “Lower 48″ makes us the safest place to order Japanese maples. Shipping from west coast nurseries can take up to ten days across country and then you would have the worry that your trees will sit in a freezing or boiling truck trailer over a weekend. We ship on Tuesdays; FedEx Home delivers Tuesday through Saturday, FedEx Ground delivers Monday through Friday.
We ship trees from April through June and then again September through October, sometimes even later weather permitting.
We want to see healthy trees with leaves before we ship them to you. That’s why we don’t gamble on bare root plants shipped in the winter.
Davidsan’s Delivery Service has been put on hiatus. We hope to begin them again , my health permitting. When we do again start our delivery service to select area cities within driving distance we will publicize it on our web site or email those area folks who might be interested. But until then, we may be bringing a trailer to a Farmer’s Market near you! Stay tuned. Or plan a easy day trip here, make an appointment, and enjoy a great experience on our three acres of gorgeous botanical gardens, while being able to pick out and purchase your own trees. We’d love to see ya!! Its a win win for both of us.
