Shipping & Return Policy

Delivery Time

Each product page displays “ships within” information. This is the estimated time (actual time may vary) from the date the order is received until the product is dispatched from our warehouse located in Illinois. The time from dispatch to delivery is usually between 3–7 days. For time-sensitive deliveries please reach out to our customer team at

Please note that if you placed an order for products with different dispatch times the full order will be held until your entire order is ready to be shipped.

Requested Delivery Dates

Have an upcoming install or urgent project? We suggest adding a requested delivery date. When creating a quote on Hem Pro you can specify a requested delivery date for your order. Please note, that although we cannot guarantee the exact date of delivery, we aim to accommodate this whenever possible given stock availability and ship-to location. If you have a time-sensitive project, send us an email with all details to and we’ll do what we can to help!

Below is a breakdown of our delivery methods and rates.

Delivery method



Sample delivery


Samples will be delivered as standard parcels with tracking information via USPS.

Standard parcel delivery

12% of quote's gross total

Items will be delivered as standard parcels via FedEx. We ask you to monitor your shipment via the tracking information that is sent out to you. If you are not at home at the time of delivery, the carrier may leave your package at your door if a signature is not required. Please note, that once delivered, Hem does not take responsibility for orders that are lost or stolen.

Curbside delivery

Standard curbside delivery is delivered by Mainfreight and means that the carrier will deliver your item(s) to the curb of your specified delivery address. This service does not include inside delivery, removal of packaging, assembly, or setup of your item(s).

Mainfreight will call you 24 hours in advance of delivery to arrange a specified delivery window. Once scheduled, if you are not available at the set time of delivery, your order will be subject to a redelivery fee of $150. The cost for re-delivery must be paid in advance.

Please note, that curbside delivery is made on a pallet. This pallet will be left with the delivery.

Mainfreight Transport requires curb-side access to the delivery address that will accommodate a 26 ft straight truck. Please notify us in advance if your address requires a smaller vehicle or has other access restrictions. In some cases, this may result in an additional delivery fee.
