Shipping

  • Tamlin quality control ensures that your materials arrive on site in original condition, protected from the elements, and on time.
  • For smaller homes, one shipment is enough but for larger homes, split shipments are scheduled so the materials needed first are on the right truck as required on site.
  • Delicate materials such as doors, windows, timber frame, and finishing materials are packaged carefully to avoid damage during transport; smaller items like hardware are boxed separately
  • All materials are inspected, crated, wrapped , packaged and clearly labelled
  • Individual loads are weighed and arranged to maximize the truck’s capacity, given road weight restrictions; extra shipping costs are avoided
  • Special “hiab” crane trucks can be arranged to deliver and unload easily on site
  • Deliveries to coastal, island & remote locations can be made by truck, ferry or barge
  • Full insurance and shipping coordination across Canada
