Frequently asked questions


PLEASE READ: Due to a change in Fedex policy, it is prohibitively expensive to ship 8 ft poles. All parcel shipments must be exactly 96” or under including packaging. Parcels over 96” in length will incur a $90 oversize charge. We ship with Fedex ground for all pole/timber orders 7 foot or under in length. Please allow 1-5 business days for order processing* before your items are shipped out. We DO NOT guarantee shipping times. If you are in the Portland, OR area, you are welcome to pick up your order at our shop. We are located at 2104 N Willis Blvd. Portland, OR 97217. If you would like to order poles over 8 feet in length, they will be shipped via LTL freight and you will need to contact us directly, before ordering, for a shipping quote to your location. Freight deliveries can be made to commercial docks, commercial businesses with a forklift, or to street level. Freight deliveries do not include assistance or inside delivery. Residential and limited access deliveries will incur additional fees. We recommend ordering in volume for this option to be cost effective. Please call our shop at (503) 285-5339 or email if you would like to request a freight quote. We can cut bamboo poles and timbers down to a shorter length, for an additional cost, to make it more easily shippable or if you have a specific size in mind.
