Q. What is your delivery policy?

A. All deliveries pay an $8.00 fuel service fee. When the price of diesel fuel decreases this fee may be reduced or eliminated. Over the last 3 years, this fee has been as high as $15.00.

All masonry products, no matter of order value, pay a $25.00 delivery fee and fuel service charge.
