Delivery and Shipping

Shipping Policy

Notice: CHECK THE SHIP BY DATE ON EACH PRODUCT PAGE

Each product will have an estimated ship date and those dates are accurate and being monitored everyday.Β Β 

Below you'll find a detailed explanation as to what to expect for the different ways we handle orders.Β 
1. Order now, with ships by and delivered by dates available
2. Estimated Ship Date with no delivery dates available: We have manufacturers that will ship directly to you in the event we are out of stock. This means that we do not know exactly when it will ship but we encourage our partners to get the items out within 3 days. Occasionally this will take longer and is not 100% in our control.Β 



3. Backordered: This is because the product is currently in route to us or we are waiting on part of the item to produce. When this happens we still know what to expect with accuracy and will tell you when to expect the shipment.

  1. BuildASoil Shipping – 1-5 Days Shipping (USPS, Fedex, UPS)

BuildASoil Freight – 1-7 Days Transit time depending on distance.Β Please note that the estimated delivery on freight shipments is the estimated date that the shipment will reach the nearest terminal to your delivery location, and final delivery can take anywhere from 1-10 business days following the delivering terminal receiving the shipment. The carrier will reach out to you to schedule final delivery. Please input an accurate phone number and shipping address during checkout for delivery.Β

How is shipping calculated?

We use the product length, width, height, and weight. We send this info through a custom system that calculates the absolute best box to combine your items into. This box and weight info is then sent within seconds to the carrier and back again to display the real time rates. We do not ever add money to our shipping rates.Β 

How does freight work?

Freight shipping is our go to shipping option for when your order has become too big to ship through ordinary parcel. With freight shipping, your order will go onto a box truck or semi trailer. Depending on whether you are a residential or commercial customer, we will make sure the proper accessories are selected from our end to make delivery as easy as possible for you! With a freight delivery, the shipping carrier will contact you and likely schedule a delivery appointment to make sure you are there at time of delivery and can sign for the shipment.

Do not sign for your order until you have confirmed an identical count of boxes, bags, rolls, bundles, pails, etc. and have checked very carefully for apparent and/or concealed damage. We will not accept any responsibility for missing and/or damaged items unless you note a count discrepancy and/or identify damage on the bill of lading at the time of delivery!

Tracking and Receiving Orders:

All orders shipping via FedEx or USPS, you will be provided with tracking information via an email to the email address provided on the order on the day the order is shipped. Please contact us immediately if you think your shipment is lost or if your shipment arrives damaged.

When your order arrives, open the package immediately and inspect the content against the packing slip; it is especially important to check viability on living products immediately. Notify us immediately of any shortages or damage, do not discard any damaged items or shipping cartons. The shipping company may require an inspection prior to approving any claim.

Claims Policy:

Visible Damage, Concealed Damage, and Missing Content ClaimsΒ - Visible Damage is defined as any damage to the packaging that is identifiable without opening the package at the time of delivery. Concealed Damage is defined as any damage that is not immediately noticeable at the time the package is opened or when the product is first used. Missing Content is defined as any package that is missing product that the packing slip states is included. These types of claims must be made directly to BuildASoil within 5 business days of delivery. Any claims made after that time cannot be honored. Please contact BuildASoil at 855-877-7645 or email Support@BuildASoil.comΒ to make such a claim.

Incorrect Delivery and Lost Package ClaimsΒ -Β Incorrect Delivery is defined as any incident where the driver delivers the package to the wrong address or individual. Lost Packages may occur in two ways. First, lost packages may occur when packages are not able to be located within the carrier's network. Second, a package may be considered lost when the carrier claims delivery was completed by leaving the package on the doorstep, but the customer cannot locate the package. Both incorrect delivery and lost package incidents are usually discovered through standard tracking of the package.

Claims for either of these problems must be made directly to BuildASoil upon discovery. No claims will be honored after 30 days from shipment date. Please contact BuildASoil at 855-877-7645 or email Support@BuildASoil.comΒ to make such a claim.

Incorrect Product Claims -Β BuildASoil must be notified directly within 30 days of shipment of any package received where contents incorrect. Please contact BuildASoil at 855-877-7645 or email Support@BuildASoil.comΒ to make such a claim.

Basalt Rock Dust: The Ultimate Soil Enhancer 🌱🌟

Why Basalt Rock Dust? πŸ€”
  • Natural Release of Elements: Provides a slow, natural release of essential elements and trace minerals 🌍, ensuring a steady nutrient supply to your plants 🌿.
  • Boosted Nutrient Intake: Enhances the nutrient intake of plants 🌾, leading to healthier growth and more robust yields πŸ“ˆ.
  • Higher Brix Reading: Results in crops with a higher sugar content 🍭, indicating better quality and flavor πŸ….
  • pH Regulation: Rebalances soil pH βš–οΈ, creating an optimal environment for plant growth.
  • Microbial and Earthworm Boost: Increases the growth of beneficial microorganisms 🦠 and earthworm activity πŸͺ±, vital for soil health.
  • Humus Complex Formation: Builds the humus complex 🌱, the organic component of soil, which improves soil structure and fertility.
  • Erosion Prevention: Helps in preventing soil erosion 🌊, preserving the topsoil layer essential for plant growth.
  • Enhanced Soil Storage: Increases the water πŸ’§ and nutrient storage capacity of the soil, benefiting plants during dry spells 🌞.
  • Natural Pest Resistance: Increases resistance to insects 🐜, disease 🦠, frost ❄️, and drought 🌡, reducing the need for chemical interventions.
  • Nutritious Crops: Produces crops that are more nutritious πŸ₯¦, benefiting both the environment and consumers.
  • Flavor Enhancement: Enhances the flavor in crops πŸ“, making them tastier.
  • Eco-Friendly: Decreases dependence on synthetic fertilizers, pesticides, and herbicides πŸš«πŸ’‰, promoting sustainable agriculture 🌍.
How to Apply Basalt Rock Dust:
  1. Composting with Rock Dust: Combine rock dust with organic materials in compost πŸ‚ to speed up the composting process and remineralize soils. Add 2-20 lbs of rock dust per cubic yard of compost.
  2. Soil Acidity Regulation: If the soil is acidic, combine rock dust with agricultural limestone to neutralize the soil's pH βš–οΈ.
  3. Direct Application: Rock dust can be spread by hand βœ‹, rototilled, disked in, or applied with a manure or fertilizer spreader. It can also be incorporated into potting soil mixtures or added directly to compost.
  4. Quantity: Depending on your soil quality, apply 1-10 tons per acre. The finer the rock dust, the less you need. An application of 3 tons per acre could last a few years, while 10 tons per acre could last many years.
A Note on Rock Types: While various rock types can be used for remineralization, Basalt stands out as an ideal source πŸŒ‹, especially in regions without glacial deposits. It offers a broad spectrum of minerals in a natural balance, making it a superior alternative to chemical fertilizers.
