Freight & Delivery
In order to minimize shipping costs for customers and reduce our impact on the environment, Sidhu & Sons Nursery attempts to ship only full truckloads (a full load equals a 42,500 lbs. or 51-53 ft. load).
This requires a minimum customer order of ten feet of product per customer (e.g. 1,900 one-gallon plants or 1,000 one-gallon plants and 450 two-gallon plants). Individual customer orders that are not full trailer loads will be combined with other customer loads until a full load is achieved and will be delivered on a first-come/first-served basis.

Quotes and Billing
Quotes for loads are submitted to common carriers, unless a customer specifies a preference for a particular carrier.
For orders shipped by Sidhu trucks, freight billing will be included in the customer’s product order invoice and freight inclusion will be based upon the payment history, length of association and credit limit of the customer. (The amount of freight will be included in the calculation of the credit limit.)
