- Our Reliable Shipping and Delivery
Great products mean nothing unless you can deliver them to the customer.
That’s why regularly scheduled deliveries are made throughout the five-state area covered by Conestoga Tile. Our warehouse operation makes it possible to receive orders for delivery of stock material up to 4:00 pm prior to the customer’s delivery day.
Deliveries are made to tile contractors and dealers on Conestoga Tile’s own fleet of trucks. A nightly shuttle truck moves inventory and orders between each warehouse, assuring that any product in stock at any Conestoga Tile warehouse will be available on the customer’s next delivery or by 7:00 a.m. at the warehouse nearest to the customer’s business.
Conestoga Tile also ships nationally to commercial projects such as malls, supermarkets and hotels. These shipments are made either from our warehouses or direct from the manufacturer.
We’ve even shipped tile internationally as far away as Russia.
