What You Need To Know About Shipping And Delivery At Home Depot

Home Depot is one of the most popular destinations for every home improvement project, from gardening to painting, to total home renovation. Regardless of the size of your next project, Home Depot offers everything you need to get the job done and plenty of convenient ways to shop, whether you prefer to do so in person, buy online and pick up in-store, or ship your order directly to your home.

And while many items at Home Depot are readily available in-store and are convenient to pick up in person to take home for your next project, larger and heavier items, in particular, such as lumber, appliances, and more, aren't as easy to get home on your own — especially if you don't have a large enough vehicle to accommodate them. Not to mention, driving to the store to shop or pick up your online order, fighting the crowds, and driving back home eats up valuable time in your day.

How to take advantage of The Home Depot's convenient delivery service

It's now easier (and cheaper) than ever before to shop online at the home improvement retailer. According to Home Depot, standard delivery for most orders over $45 is completely free. This means you can hit "add to cart" on all the materials you need for your next big home improvement, gardening, or decorating project without worrying about the convenience of home delivery breaking the bank. Two-day delivery is also available on some of the most in-demand items on the retailer's website, which is ideal for those in a time crunch for their project or simply eager to complete it. Additionally, all appliance purchases of $396 or more also ship for free right to your residence with standard shipping.

Home Depot also offers scheduled delivery, which allows you to choose a date and a time for your items to be delivered that is most convenient for you. Upon checkout, you will be prompted to choose a specific delivery date and time frame on the date you want your order delivered using the scheduling calendar feature. Orders that are placed before noon are also eligible for same-day delivery to either your home or your job site, which is ideal if you are in the middle of a project and need to stock up on more materials without leaving and driving to the store.
