Shipping & Delivery

A human will answer your call immediately!

We let you know exactly where and when your product will be delivered.

And our no-hassle shipping policy means we will replace any order that doesn’t arrive in perfect condition.

Boom! We were on this easy thing way before the Staples button.

“Tell us exactly where you want it delivered, and we’ll make it happen.” Jessica Tingley – Inside Sales


Standard cabinets (want it configured?) are packaged in clear shrink wrap with cardboard corners and secured to a pallet—ready to ship in 24-48 hours ARO. Need something special? We can do it:

  • Pallets with fold-up ramps
  • Shock pallets to protect rack mount equipment during shipping
  • Specialty crates for increased protection
  • Bulk packing of small parts to eliminate extra boxes
  • Pallet free and/or blanket wrapped for a “green” solution


Cabinets can cost thousands of dollars and shipping isn’t always a cheap date; give your freight an “insurance policy” by using our No-Hassle Freight Protection:

  • Great Lakes will choose a reputable carrier to deliver your product
  • Inspect your order within 72 hours to identify any damages that may exist
  • Give us a call and we’ll take financial responsibility to replace and ship new parts
  • No questions asked
  • No cost to you
Note: Other freight options allow you to specify a carrier; see General Policies: Freight Handling Options.


Avoid a delivery delay by working out the details with us:

  • Route specific concerns including non-commercial delivery, overhead clearances, weight restrictions, or road construction
  • Arrival on specific days or timeframes
  • Secure areas (government, military, schools) that may require driver clearances
  • Major metropolitan area that restrict freight transportation during certain days/times
  • Overseas destinations that require certificates of origin, custom certificates, etc.


Choose a delivery service that works for you. We can drop it off and you move it. Or have a bad back? We’ll move freight for you.
