Our Greenhouse Shipping & Pickup Options Help You Overcome Hurdles

Our Greenhouse Shipping & Pickup Options Help You Overcome Hurdles

They say no two farmers are exactly alike: each has their own motivations, finds their own successes, and encounters their own challenges along the journey from “just starting” to “well-established.”

But when it comes to overcoming some of the most basic hurdles facing the industry, it sometimes seems like we’re all in it together. That’s where a little cooperation can make a big difference.

Over our nearly 30 years of providing greenhouses and high tunnels to growers across the United States, we’ve met a lot of dedicated growers—and while each of them finds their own path to success, we’ve also seen many of our customers encounter the same challenges when it comes to getting the equipment they need, right when they need it.

That’s why we’ve improved our greenhouse, high tunnel, and equipment delivery process to best match your unique needs. 

Whether you prefer to have your equipment shipped to you for assembly later, or you have more interest in bringing your own truck to pick up your order here in Hooksett, NH, we’ve got you covered.

Here’s a look at how we work hard every day to get critical equipment in the hands of farmers and growers through simple shipping, pickup, and construction options designed to match your needs.

Need a Greenhouse Shipped? We’ve Got You Covered

When you’re expecting a big shipment like a greenhouse to come to your door, you want to know for certain that you’ll be getting what you need, when you need it.

That’s why we’ve designed our shipping process to offer simple, seamless delivery to customers all across the country—and to maintain the same high levels of customer service you expect.

We’ll Send You A Greenhouse, Even to Far-Flung Locales

For many of our customers, including everyone from small-scale farmers to larger agricultural operations, our shipping is the easiest and most reliable method of getting a greenhouse or high tunnel.

We make it easy by maintaining close relationships with a number of local national, and independent shipping companies to make sure you get what you need, and right where you need it.

If you’re looking for the best option, you can find it through our online store—just enter your shipping information and we’ll let you know exactly how much you can expect to pay to get your greenhouse, high tunnel, or equipment brought to your address.

Why We Like Working with Independent Shippers

Some manufacturers like to work exclusively with large shipping companies, and that’s just fine—we do plenty of that too especially for our customers located in places like Alaska or along the West Coast. 

But when we can, we try to work with independent and small-scale truckers and shipping companies—because not only do we like to support small businesses, but we also like their dedication to maintaining that high level of customer service.

One of the biggest benefits to working with independent shippers: they listen to your needs. From arranging the delivery order in the truck to speed up delivery time on arrival, to giving you total transparency with unlading options (without the hidden liftgate or unloading fees), these small-scale truckers make a big impact on the success and satisfaction of our delivery process.

Because of the nature of the shipping industry, working with independent truckers also helps our customers save on shipping costs. Independent shippers can be much more flexible when it comes to planning routes and organizing deliveries, which often gives us access to the best rates when other manufacturers are still bidding for space on the big trucks.

Best of all, working with an independent trucker gives us and our customers the feel of a focused, dedicated partner—they listen, respond, and genuinely care about your delivery. They know the local roads best, and can make sure your delivery gets where it needs to without unnecessary delays. We think that’s worth it, and our customers do too.

Pickup Options that Work with Your Schedule

For some farmers, the old saying is true: “If you want to make sure something’s done right, you have to do it yourself.”

We get it—we’re growers too, and we know that sometimes you just have to roll up your sleeves and get to work. That’s why we make it easy for our customers to forgo shipping and pick up their greenhouse, high tunnel, or equipment right here at our headquarters in Hooksett, NH

The process is simple: when you order your structure, we’ll give you the option for pickup on a dedicated pickup schedule, Just select the time that works best for you, and we’ll have everything you need ready when you roll up.

We’ve even made the delivery process contact-free! Just drive up to our loading zone around the back of our offices and we’ll take it from there: our team will load everything up into your truck and give you the all-clear to make sure everything is strapped-down and accounted for. Then, when everything is all set, you can head off to your destination.

For growers concerned about up-front costs, pickup may actually be one of the most cost-effective options available. Because we’re located in New Hampshire, we do not charge sales tax on our products at the point of sale—meaning you’ll have better control over your budget when it matters most. 

Interested in renting a truck for pickup? We’ve got a special relationship with Ryder trucks that can offer our customers a discounted rate on truck rentals for pickup. Get in touch with our team and we’ll help you get outfitted with everything you need to get your greenhouse on your schedule.

Greenhouse Construction Made Simple

Getting your greenhouse physically delivered to your farm, university, garden, or business—whether by shipping or by pickup—is only the first step. Next comes getting your greenhouse constructed and ready for your greenery.

Even though the greenhouse construction process is likely new for most growers, the vast majority of our customers actually take on the greenhouse construction process themselves—which is why we’ve made our greenhouse kits as easy to construct as possible.

For beginners to the construction process, instructions are the key to keeping the process moving. That’s why we provide manuals for all of our structures, and a series of helpful videos to help you get your structure in the ground with confidence.

We also take that extra step by pre-drilling holes in pipes and posts, providing high-quality bolts and screws, and always offering guidance on what equipment you need to achieve your greenhouse goals. And, since our greenhouse kits all come pre-stamped for building permits, you can say goodbye to lengthy holdups and get busy building your structure.

Always Improving & Upgrading, So You Can Too

We’ll do everything we can to make your greenhouse construction process as simple as possible, but we know that won’t be the end of improvements to your growing process. To match your need for new solutions, we continually improve and evolve our offerings to make sure you can stay at the forefront of what the industry has to offer.

  • Interested in solar power or environmental controls? Our greenhouses are designed for easy installation of low-voltage power options that do not require an electrical contractor.
  • Want to boost your greenhouse’s longevity? We offer a wide variety of parts and replacement pieces so you can keep your greenhouse in top shape through every season.
