Shipping & Returns


Shipping Policy


World Class Tiles ships anywhere within the United States. We don't ship to Canada or anywhere outside of the U.S, unless you are able to handle all shipping details, I'm sorry for the inconvenience. Once your order is placed it usually takes 24 to 48 hours to process. Once processed, it is picked up by our freight carrier and delivered to your location within 5-7 business days. There are certain times a year such as December, because of Christmas, that shipping of your materials could vary slightly. If part of the entire order is not in stock, we will notify you. All orders are shipped out in their entirety. We do not ship partial orders.


All tile orders are shipped common carrier. All shipping rates are subject to change without notice. World Class Tiles use the most professional well-respected carriers in the trucking industry. Because of our large volume, we can assure you that we provide the absolute lowest freight available. You can choose to have your order delivered to your home, a place of business, or to pick it up at a designated freight terminal in your area. In almost all cases the total delivery charge is less if the order is delivered to a place of business or is picked up by you at a local terminal. If you choose to pick your materials up at a terminal we will notify you of the terminal location after you make your purchase. In the event your order is being delivered to your home, you must have someone at the delivery location to help unload the order. Deliveries are curbside only. The drivers will not bring the material into your home.


The freight carriers will notify you as to the date of delivery, but not an exact time of delivery. The time of delivery is usually between a 2 and 6 hour time span. If for any reason you need a tracking number or the phone number of the terminal please call us at 1-888-739-8505.


*Important* Whoever accepts delivery, must inspect the material and sign for the order noting any damaged or missing material. Damaged or missing material must be noted on the paperwork in order for us to issue replacement material or credit to you. This is the only way our company will be properly reimbursed by the carrier. In the event there is damaged or missing material we will without hesitation re-ship or credit the needed goods to you as long as it is noted in the paperwork.


 Someone must be available to accept the shipped goods when purchasing a large quantity that is shipped via LTL freight truck. You cannot sign a waiver and let the carrier leave the material at your doorstep and then ask us to replace any damaged or stolen goods. In the event that you sign a waiver to have the goods left, you are stating that the freight company is not responsible for damages or theft. That means that if your tile was damaged during the shipment process, they won't pay for it, therefore we can't be expected to pay for it either.
