What should my delivery check list consist of?

Making sure you have reviewed the delivery disclosure and that the path to barn site meets our required clearances. You want to make sure the path to the barn site and the barn site itself are dry. Be sure that they are not wet or holding water. Your barn is very heavy and our equipment is not four-wheel drive. A little bit of soft ground can turn into a big mess quickly. Monitoring the wetness of the ground should be one of your greatest concerns for a successful delivery. Communicate any concern to us as soon as you are able to so that we can plan accordingly.

A salesman would travel to the location to meet with you on-site.

Your barn purchase includes Sunset Barns' customer guarantee. We proudly stand behind our products and although a manufacturers warranty is not provided, a quality guarantee is. Your barn is constructed of rough cut oak post and beam style framing, white pine siding and built with Amish Craftmanship. These are the same materials and designs used on the 100+ year old barns still standing here in Lancaster County, PA. We know our products will stand the test of time and your barn will age gracefully. Your barn hardware and grills are powder-coated and your shingles do have a lifetime manufacturers warranty. If at any time you feel you barn is not living up to this standard please contact us so we can resolve the issue.

Sometimes things do go wrong with your barn or hardware. At delivery your driver will review your barn with you and inform you on common questions customers have. If something occurs during delivery we will take full responsibility to repair/replace the issue. After delivery or years down the road if you have an issue or concern call us. We will replace the material in question or make the proper repairs. If your powder-coating fails at any time, let us know and we will send a replacement.
