Sagebrook Home generally ships credit approved orders within 4 to 6 business days from the date the order is confirmed by Sagebrook Home. Order acknowledgements are prepared and emailed at the time of order placement. All orders meeting the minimum are shipped on pallets via common carrier. We reserve the right to select the carrier on any shipment unless a customer's preferred carrier is requested. All LTL shipping and handling charges from our dock are prepaid, FOB Los Angeles, CA.
Accessorial Services: Sagebrook Home’s flat-rate freight program is for standard commercial delivery only. Accessorial services, such as residential, non-business zone deliveries or white glove services (e.g. inside deliveries, re-deliveries, calls for appointments, lift gates, etc.) will incur additional charges above the flat freight rate. Please advise us when placing your order that you require additional accessorial services, and Sagebrook Home will prepay and bill you for the additional services. Accessorial services used without prior notification to Sagebrook Home will be billed separately.
Remote Locations: Remote locations which require unusually high freight costs are be excluded from this program . This should be a rare occurrence, and Sagebrook Home will notify you in advance should your shipping location be identified as being in a high-freight remote location.
Backorders: On occasion, we will have new items or items that sell out due to high demand creating backorders in our system. Sagebrook Home is committed to excellent customer service, so we apply the appropriate flat-rate freight percentages to backorders that meet the $1000 minimum.
Backorders below $250 will automatically be cancelled.
Discounted Items: Closeout or heavily discounted orders are not eligible for the flat-rate freight program; actual freight rate will apply to the order.
The flat-rate freight program is subject to change at the sole discretion of Sagebrook Home.
Receiving Freight: When accepting LTL shipments, please adhere to the following procedures in order to accurately accept your shipment.
All backorders under $250 will be automatically canceled.

PRICE STRUCTURE & ORDER MINIMUMS
Opening order, re-order minimums, and backorders are the same.
A minimum order is considered the total necessary to qualify for case pack pricing and LTL shipping.
For the US, this minimum is $2,000.
Wholesale Freight Rate Tier:
- Gold Tier: $5000 + (15% Freight Cap/unit prices are based on qty ordered per item)
- Silver Tier: $2000 - $4999 (Freight Map %/unit prices are based on the qty ordered per item)
- Bronze Tier: $1000 - $1999 (35% shipping/unit prices are based on the qty ordered per item)
- $500 - $999 (35% shipping + designer prices regardless of the qty ordered per item)
*Please note that any orders that include an LTL item (furniture, mirrors, etc.) MUST meet the minimum. Customer service will contact you if these rules apply to your order and will alter pricing accordingly.
For Canada, the minimum is $2,000 shippable, palletized freight. Customers must communicate their broker and preferred freight forwarder information to their sales rep in order to determine freight estimates prior to shipping.
Pricing tiers available to all customers:
- Case pack pricing: buy items by the case pack, pay the lowest price (wholesale)
- Split case pricing: buy the minimum quantity or below, pay a higher price. Minimum quantity is dependent on the item but as a general rule is half the case pack quantity, never to 1.
- Designer pricing: break a case pack down to one piece or ship less than the minimum, pay the highest “designer” price
- Order minimum is $500 and freight is 35%
Brandwise and the website are NOT able to automatically recalculate all pricing if the order total doesn’t reach the minimum $2,000. Customer service will change the pricing by hand when the order is pushed through and send you and the customer a revised order confirmation.
Our items are packed by case pack intended to be safely shipped on a pallet with a full order. If we break down a case pack, the single item is no longer wrapped safely to travel without damages. To ensure the best quality merchandise is delivered to you, we repack the item in a custom box with protective packaging. That takes material and manpower, hence the higher price.
Some items (like sofas) cannot be shipped parcel, and therefore are not applicable to the designer program. Those items are designated on the website (it will say Drop Ship: NO) and can also be checked with our customer service team.
