9. Lead Time
In a time of backordered appliances and shipping delays galore, lead time is now an important consideration when it comes to selecting your hardwood floor. We at Urbanfloor do our best to ensure each of our products are well stocked and ready for shipment when each order is placed. Even so, as you choose your hardwood flooring, be sure to ask the flooring dealer about lead time to avoid any surprise delays. Even if the product is in stock, it’s always good to know how long delivery will take to your location!
