Behind the Scenes: Shipping

Understandably, shipping is not a very fascinating subject, but how do you think the products you order get to you? Are you not just a little bit curious as to what goes on at the warehouse? Or, how the item you purchased is handled before it arrives?

Maybe your curiosity has peaked. That is perfect!

Imagine that you order 27 medium to large  and a couple extra large ceiling medallions. Maybe they are all gifts or maybe they are just for your home; it doesn’t matter. What matters is that you, the customer purchased the items and they are supposed to be packed, shipped and be delivered in a timely, cost-efficient manner. Isn’t that right?

Good news for you the highly valued customer: our warehouse team values each shipment as much as you do yours. They are dedicated to finding solutions to make shipping secure while being cost efficient for the customer. For example, those hypothetical 27 ceiling medallions you recently purchased are on a pallet as opposed to being shipped individually. The best benefit of shipping it that way is that the medallions would be delivered all at once. The next obvious benefit was that it would be cost effective to ship one pallet as opposed to 27 different boxes.

Next time you order a product, you can be confident that our team will ship your products with care and efficiency. It does not matter if you order one small rosette or 27 ceiling medallions, the product is important to us because it is so important to you!

Behind the Scenes: Shipping Balusters

Last month, we checked out the Ekena Millwork Arcadian balusters being individually assembled. This week we take a closer look at how our shipping team sends them out.

At first glance, one can tell that balusters are pretty large items and customers never buy just one. Typically, customers purchase several balusters along with other components to create a beautiful balustrade railing. With all of these fairly large items, it makes sense that our expert shipping team uses large, custom build crates to ship the products to the customer. The crates can transport up to 30 balusters for customers with bigger projects. The crate is made out of wood bound with steel strapping and, just for good measure, wrapped with several layers of polyolefin film.

Molded after original historical patterns and designs, the Ekena Millwork balusters are true to make a bold statement of elegance. Balusters are made from lightweight, yet very durable, urethane material that allows it to be resistant to the natural effects of weathering, rotting and insect exposure. The shipping team sends the balusters factory primed and ready to paint or apply a faux finish to each customer.
