Kirsch Buckingham Wooden Curtain Rods

Order $175 Of Drapery Hardware And Get Free Shipping:

Order at least $175 worth of drapery hardware from any brand or fabricator and you will receive free shipping unless:

  • Your order has an oversized item
  • You are shipping your order to Alaska or Hawaii

Some Non-Drapery Hardware Items Don't Qualify For Free Shipping:

Items like bolts of drapery lining, boxes of drapery weights and other non-drapery hardware items don't qualify for Free Shipping. You'll still save with our Value Shipping Program, but we can't ship these extremely heavy items for free.

If You Have An Oversized Item:

If your order has an oversized item, you only pay an oversize upcharge with Value Shipping. The upcharge usually amounts to about $4 per pole. And, depending on the brand, you may receive a "no oversize upcharge" bonus.

The easiest way to figure out your Shipping Fee is to add what you need to your cart, then visit the Shopping Cart page and use the easy "Calculate Shipping And Sales Tax Feature".

If You Have An Oversized Item (Over 92"):

Shippers like UPS & Fed-Ex apply an enormous Large Package Surcharge (LP Surcharge) to shipments around eight feet. As long as your product is under 92", you don't have to pay the surcharge. Many items can be cut down to 92" for free. There still may be a small shipping charge for cut down items, but you won't have the pay the enormous LP Surcharge. Items over 92" never qualify for free or reduced Shipping.

If You Have An Oversized Item (Over 102"):

Your item will have to be shipped to you on a semi-truck and does not qualify for free or reduced shipping.

Alaska and Hawaii Shipping:

The shipping fee displayed during Checkout is an estimate. Your actual shipping fee may be higher. If your actual shipping fee is higher than displayed, you will be contacted for permission before any extra charges are applied. If you don't want to pay the actual shipping fee to AK or HI, you may cancel your order without penalty.  Since we ship direct from several manufacturers, this is the only way we can continue to service customers in AK and HI - we appreciate your understanding.

Your Order Total Is Calculated Based On Brand:

You must order at least $175 from the same brand. For example, if your order at least $175 from Kirsch, but only $75 from Select on the same order: Your Kirsch items will ship for free, but your Select items will be subject to shipping charges.

If You Return An Item From An Order That Qualified For Free Shipping:

If the value of your return causes your order total to drop below the minimum to qualify for promotional shipping, we'll deduct the difference from your return credit.

Your Order Must Ship Complete:

While we make every effort to ensure that all products are available in our stocking warehouses, from time to time, backorders do occur. If your order qualifies for free or reduced shipping, we can not split-ship your order. All items must be shipped together once the backordered items arrive at our stocking warehouse.

Where Do You Ship To?

We ship to valid United States residential and business addresses. Many items can not be shipped to PO Boxes. We do not ship outside the United States.

We reserve the right to cancel any order that originates from or ships to any address that is not within the 50 United States.

What Shipping Methods Do You Use?

We offer ground shipping from national carriers like UPS, Fed-Ex and USPS. Since the majority of our items are custom made and can take several days to produce, we don't offer air or expedited shipping.

It's been our experience that the majority of our orders include poles or other items that are large and therefore very expensive to ship by air and the cost to our customers for air shipping is usually very high. Please try to place your order at least two weeks before you want to hang (or install) your product. This will give us enough time to have your order made and shipped to you using a lower cost ground carrier.

How Long Will It Take To Get My Order?

Each collection and fabricator that we carry has their own unique production schedule. Our fabricators update us frequently with their production times and we post this information on each products paged under the "Add To Cart" button. We also post the lead time in your "Shopping Cart".

Our posted production and shipping times are "Usually Ships In" times. They are not guarantees, items "usually" ship within the posted time frame. We work very hard to get orders out as quickly as possible, but delays can happen from time to time.

Highly customized items may take up to 15 business days to ship. Non-customized, or stock, items may ship the same or next business day. Once your order ships, you should allow between 3 and 5 business days to receive your order. The posted "Usually Ships In" lead times do not include the time it takes for your order to travel from our fabricator to your location.
