At AAA State of Play, our staff searches for the lowest freight or delivery options available. Most playground equipment is shipped freight, however several independent items ship UPS ground. To receive a shipping quote on playground equipment, contact us toll free at (877) 826-2776. The freight carrier, not AAA State of Play, shall be liable for any damage to the equipment that occurs during shipping.

Freight Delivery

On arrival of your merchandise, the truck driver will bring the load to the tailgate of the trailer. From that point it is up to you to unload the item (the driver is not obligated to help you unload). If you need a liftgate, (to unload the item(s) from tailgate to ground) arrangements will need to be made prior. Contact a customer service representative at our office to schedule arrangements.

If your item requires freight delivery your shipping address must be able to accommodate a large delivery truck. Most addresses are accessible for large trucks, however low wires or clearances directly in front of address will make the location difficult to ship. We will not be responsible for inaccurate or undeliverable addresses. If this is the case, please contact us for other options.

Additional Freight Services

Additional services such as two-person delivery, liftgate service, or inside delivery are not included in the shipping price. In most cases this will not be necessary if someone is available that can lift a moderately heavy item is available to help. Structures and Fun Centers are generally packed on a single skid. These will weigh several hundred to thousands of pounds. For these items we generally suggest manually unpacking to check and verify a complete shipment. For any additional freight services, please contact our office as the fees vary by carrier and region.

Storage Fee Policy

Effective March 1, 2023, we implemented storage fees for equipment/orders that are here in our warehouse and available for shipping out. Storage fees will be assessed at $100.00(US Dollars) per crate/pallet related to each order every business day after your order(s) has/have reached a status that qualifies. Below is a list of qualifying storage fee guidelines. Any fees accrued must be paid in full prior to NVB releasing shipment of order(s).

Storage Fee Guidelines

Orders become subject to Storage Fees of $100.00(US Dollars) each business day if any of the following apply. NVB does reserve the right to assess Storage Fees to any order if/when necessary or the order is hindering our productivity.

1. Your order(s) have been held in our warehouse for 30 days and still have not been scheduled to ship out because the customer is not ready to accept shipment, has nowhere to store their own equipment, etc.

Once your order arrives at NVB’s warehouse, it is required to ship out within 30 days of arrival as to not take up space for incoming shipments. NVB can no longer act as a storage facility and customers need to prepare to accept their orders in a more timely manner. NVB will notify you once your order arrives and reach out about scheduling the shipment. If the order(s) is/are not scheduled to ship/leave our dock within the first 30 days after the initial contact regarding your order(s) on day 31 storage fees begin to accrue and are assessed for each business day until the date your order(s) is/are shipped out.

2. Your order is given an appointment on our shipping schedule and you/the customer requests to delay the shipment for any reason.

Once you have scheduled an appointment for the shipment of your order(s), delaying the scheduled shipment will result in storage fees regardless of the 30 days to schedule rule. Our shipping schedule and dock have limited space/availability. Once the schedule is full and set, we have to turn away other customer requests to be added to the schedule or have their shipments bumped up. If you’ve been given an appointment on our shipping schedule, it is required that you keep your shipping appointment and prepare to accept your order(s). If the order(s) are delayed/rescheduled, storage fees begin to accrue the next business day and are assessed for each business day until the date your order(s) are shipped out.

3. Your order is already crated according to your scheduled shipment date but wasn’t sent out/picked up by your carrier etc. and is now taking up space on our dock.

Once you are given an appointment on our schedule to ship out your order(s), NVB starts processing those orders for shipment. Typically, your order(s) is/are crated and ready to go out by the end of the business day prior to your ship date to try to avoid any delays of your shipment on NVB’s end. Should your order be crated on our dock and the shipment/pickup of the order(s) is delayed for ANY reason, (examples: you ask to delay/push back shipment for a few days, the customer decides they are not ready, you send your own carrier and they do not show up or show up without enough space to pickup your order, your arrive in a non dock height vehicle without a team to load the equipment yourselves, etc.) storage fees begin the business day following your original ship date and are assessed for each business day until your order(s) leave our dock.

4. Your order(s) are shipped and then returned to us by the carrier for ANY reason.

Once your order(s) has/have left our dock, should the carriers not be able to deliver the shipment and have to return it to us for ANY reason, storage fees begin to accrue immediately and are assessed for each business day until your order(s) ships back out to you. Please also keep in mind in this scenario, if the carrier assesses any additional fees, you will be responsible for those as well along with the additional cost to reship your order(s) out.

Receipt of Shipment / Customer Responsibility

Before signing for your order, check to see that you are receiving the same number of cartons, bundles, welded frames, etc., indicated on your receipt. Note any shortages or visible damage on your receipt and have the driver note these also. If shortages are not noted on the receipt, replacement pieces may be repurchased at customer expense. Damage that is found after you unpack the shipment (concealed damage) must be reported to our Customer Service Center within 72 hours. Please closely inspect your shipment! Most freight companies allow 72 hours from receipt to report concealed damage. Digital photos will need to be taken. If you discover damage of any kind, DO NOT DESTROY ANY ORIGINAL SHIPPING CARTONS.
