Guide To Delivery and Installation
If you are considering a metal barn, check out the information below detailing Elephant Structures free delivery and free installation available on any metal barn, metal garage, or metal carport purchased. Call a metal structures expert at 888-678-1942 for more information:
Is your site ready?
In order to get the highest quality installation, we ask our property owners to have the site prepared and ready to go on the day of installation. Additionally, please remove any electrical wires less than 15 feet above the intended height of the structure and verify that no underground utilities will be impacted by the installation process of your new metal building.
Our installers will use rebar anchors for ground installation or concrete anchors over a concrete slab. The use of double helix auger anchors, also commonly refered to as mobile home anchors, may be used for an additional charge or standard with some certified carports, garages, or steel barns. Remember, all of our structures come with free installation and free delivery.
Want a Concrete Pad?
Our carports and metal buildings do not require concrete pads or slabs to be installed on your property. In fact, most carports are installed over grass, stones, or even dirt. However, if you are interested in a concrete pad, most concrete contractors will usually recommend pouring a concrete pad, or concrete slab, 3/4″ wider and the same length as the metal carport building frame you order. Please check with us for your specific region. It is important to verify the length of your building frame when ordering from Elephant Structures. The length of the frame is always 1 foot shorter than the length of the roof ordered. Therefore, if you buy a 18′ wide x 21′ long metal garage, the actual dimensions of the frame will be 18′ wide x 20′ long. Our customer service representatives will be happy to discuss any questions that you may have during the ordering process. While it may not be required in your area, we recommend concrete footers on any metal structure over 24′ wide.
So, is delivery & installation really free?
Yes, we offer free delivery & free installation in 48 states. Unfortuately, at this time, we do not offer our products for sale in Hawaii, Alaska, Canada, or Mexico. If you are interested in a metal barn kit, we do offer a discount; however, because the installers are also the delivery guys, the discount is not significant. Feel free to contact an Elephant Structures customer service representative at (888) 743-8083 for more information. Additional discounts are available if you pick the structure up at the factory (a large specialized trailer is required to pickup the metal parts and roofing material).
