For accurate delivery estimates, we provide the time-frame it takes for your order to be filled before the order ships. Please review each item’s stock status and ships-within time on the item page or in your shopping cart.
All orders are processed Monday through Friday. We strive to ship your items as fast as possible, so your order may ship sooner than estimated, and you may receive multiple deliveries. Tracking will be sent to the provided email address.
Most of our products are “Stock Items”. On each item’s page, you will see the “Ships Within” time above the “Add to Cart” button. You will notice that some items are labeled differently. Any time you see these labels next to the “Ships Within” time, that indicates a specialty product.
Below is a breakdown of the various product terms you may see:
- The product will be fabricated to your exact and unique specifications.
- These products are final sale – they are unable to be cancelled or returned once the order is placed.
- Once you place the order, fabrication will begin.

Ground Shipping Address Changes
Addresses can be updated by contacting us at no additional cost before the order has shipped. Once the order has shipped, we can request an address change for no additional charge, but the shipping carrier cannot guarantee the change.
Items that are too large or delicate to ship by standard ground carrier are required to ship freight. Freight carriers are specially trained to handle oversized and fragile items safely, for better delivery service. Here’s what to expect from the freight shipping process:
- Once your order ships, you will receive a tracking number that has an estimated delivery date to your local freight terminal.
- The carrier will call you at your provided phone number to schedule a delivery appointment within the next 1-2 business days. Only weekday appointments are available. If you are unable to receive the shipment within 1-2 business days of its arrival at the freight terminal, contact us.
- All standard freight shipments are delivered curbside. The driver will bring the item to the curb and is not authorized to move it further. Anything past curbside delivery must be arranged before placing the order.
- Upon delivery, you will need to inspect and sign for the shipment. Prior to signing, any visible damage to the shipment and products, along with any missing items, must be noted on the delivery receipt. FireplaceSurplus needs to be notified of product damage and missing parts within one business day of receiving your shipment.
Curbside Freight Address Changes
Addresses can be updated by contacting us at no additional cost before the order has shipped. Once the order has shipped, the freight carrier will charge an additional fee to update the delivery address.
We pay most shipping costs for delivery to our customers. Here is a breakdown of what you can expect:
- Orders over $99 ship FREE!
- Orders under $99 ship with a flat rate of $9.99
- For international shipments, including deliveries to Alaska, Hawaii, or any U.S. territories outside of the Contiguous U.S., you will receive a shipping quote through email within 1-2 business days of placing your order. This includes any shipment that requires a ferry or boat for delivery. The order will not be processed until you have approved and paid for the shipping cost.
- The customer is responsible for shipping both ways on orders returned that are marked undeliverable by the shipping carrier.
- Any delivery past standard curbside delivery is subject to availability and costs paid by the customer.
Please Note: Shipping is not available to P.O. Boxes or Military APOs.

Once an order has been submitted, we cannot guarantee any cancellations. All orders are processed, packed, and shipped as quickly as possible for you. If you miss the cancellation period for your order, please let us know as soon as possible, and we can help you do a return or exchange.
Most items are eligible for cancellation; however, some items are fabricated specially for you and cannot be canceled once the materials are ordered, and fabrication begins. All sales are final for the following:
- Custom made products

If you want to exchange your product for something similar, or a different product altogether, we can help you out! We offer two options – Standard Exchange and Expedited Exchange. Please note, all of our standard return policies apply.
Standard Exchange: Once you return the product you wish to exchange, we will apply the credit to your new order and begin processing it at that time.
Expedited Exchange: If you need the product shipped out before your return is received, we simply ask for a credit card to be placed on file and the return sent back within 7 days to avoid any additional charges.
In the unlikely event your product experiences a defect, our technical team will guide you through the manufacturer’s warranty process. Here is a general outline of what to expect:
Due to the technical nature of our products, troubleshooting is required by the manufacturer to process a warranty claim. Your installer will need to troubleshoot and diagnose the problem on-site while working in tandem with our technical team. If troubleshooting leads to what we deem as a defective part, we will submit a warranty claim to the manufacturer on your behalf. Before we submit the claim, we will ask you to review the terms to proceed.
Once the claim is submitted, the manufacturer will review and approve or deny the claim. If they have all the information and accept the claim, your warranty replacement part(s) will begin processing for shipment. If for any reason, the claim is denied, or we need more information, we will notify you as soon as possible.
All warranties are processed as exchanges. You can expect to receive a pre-paid return label for the defective part(s), which will need to be returned within 30 days of receiving the warranty replacement(s).
Warranty claims can take anywhere from 1-4 weeks to process, depending on the season. Due to the length of time claims can extend, we recommend that you fire up your unit in the late summer/early fall to ensure it’s in good working condition for the winter season.
We strive for excellence and stands by the products we sell! In the unlikely event that you receive a defective product, our technical team will guide you through the manufacturer’s warranty process.
Depending upon the manufacturer’s warranty procedure, part(s) will be sent to you to replace the faulty component, or you’ll return the part(s) to the manufacturer for repair. Once the product has been installed or used, it is no longer returnable, and the warranty process begins. We will facilitate the warranty request on your behalf to the manufacturer. The manufacturer will review the claim, and we will let you know if it has been accepted or rejected. Some manufacturers require defective parts to be returned for quality control purposes.
We are not responsible for reimbursement of any labor costs or project delays that may occur due to the receipt of defective goods. We always recommend that you wait to schedule installation until after your order has arrived and been inspected.
If your item has a defect outside of the warranty period, we will not be able to facilitate a claim to the manufacturer. We can continue to supply any replacement parts or replacement units, as needed. Please contact us for pricing. Please note, this may not be eligible for discontinued items.
We strive to ensure your order delivers in excellent condition; however, there are rare occasions when items do sustain damage during transit. We assume responsibility for any item(s) damaged in shipping that are reported within the claim time listed below.
Freight/Signature Required Deliveries:
- By signing for the delivery without noting any damage or missing items on the delivery receipt, you are accepting that your full order has arrived in excellent condition.
- The order must be opened and inspected in the presence of the delivery driver.
- Any damage or missing pieces must be noted on the delivery receipt.
- Do not discard the damaged item(s) or the original packaging.
- For severe damage, please note on the delivery receipt: “Refused due to damage” and contact us immediately.

FireplaceSurplus is not responsible for reimbursement of any labor costs or project delays that may occur due to the receipt of damaged goods. We always recommend that you wait to schedule installation until after your order has arrived and has been carefully inspected.
