Shipping

 
 
 
Our small delivery fleet, consisting of 20 ft. and 40 ft. trailers, is utilized for deliveries to Houston, Austin, San Antonio and Corpus Christi. This includes their immediate areas and all areas in between the above cities. Please note that we do charge a fee for delivery and the fees vary dependent upon the area and trailer size. 
 
Also note that our fleet may not be able to accommodate larger orders due to the size of our trailers. (Example: The number of trees ordered and/or the larger-sized trees may require the use of a trailer that is longer than 40 feet and at times, they may also require the lower deck height of a Step Deck or Drop Deck trailer.)  
 
With that in mind, larger loads and all other areas, outside of the above cities, require that we retain the services of contract trucking companies. Please rest assured that we only retain the services of a select few that we have used on a regular basis for many years. The options include 48’ and 53’ refrigerated trailers, 48’ and 53’ dry box trailers, and 45’, 48’ and 53’ flatbed, step deck, drop deck and double drop trailers.
