UPS Shipping Rates

For large Freight Orders see link, for standard UPS read below:
Standard UPS is the best method we have found to ship smaller orders of 1 - 5 gallon bamboo plants. We ship to anywhere in the lower 48 states and Alaska, but unfortunately not to Hawaii. We can arrange wholesale shipments to Canada. Call or email to inquire about shipping large, wholesale orders.

We ship very large bamboo!
(in addition to our standard UPS shipping, as seen above)

Tall bamboos, 6 to 40 feet tall:
 Bamboo Garden specializes in very large bamboos in 10 gallon through 100 gallon containers. Giant Black Bamboo, Timber sized Moso, Incense Bamboo, among many others.
 

Our pallet shipping system is a great way to get large size or high volume bamboos delivered to your curbside by a commercial freight carrier. We can easily fit bamboo from 5 to 12 feet in height onto our pallet system.  We are committed to finding the lowest rate carriers that have a reliable service record.  All shipments are guaranteed to arrive in healthy condition and can be easily delivered to any residential zone. We want satisfied customers! Contact us for a rate quote for your project.


--Shipping for bamboo over 15 feet tall is usually restricted to commercial zones, shipped by commercial freight trucks that have temperature controlled trailers.
Contact us for more info and current market rates. We can usually send you very large bamboo, if you need a tall screen or grove immediately. Residential customers will need to coordinate with the truck driver to meet at an open, commercial zone, or assure that the area for delivery can accommodate a 53 foot semi. We highly recommend working with a landscape professional to achieve this. Local deliveries in Oregon and Washington can be delivered with a smaller truck and do not require a commercial zone or 53 foot semi. Call to inquire about local delivery.


-- For shipping bamboo between 5 and 15 feet tall see Pallet Shipping below:

Wholesale: Landscapers, garden centers, nurseries, and others interested in large quantities, please contact us for wholesale discounts. We can email you a copy of our current Wholesale price list. bamboo@bamboogarden.com

Pallet Shipping  large quantities of bamboo, save money and packaging resources
This particular order (top picture) is about 30x 5 gallon bamboo that are 5-8 feet tall. Palletizing the whole package usually saves the customer money on shipping large volume orders of over 10x 5 gallon. We can also ship 10 gallon to 20 gallon bamboo (below, left) with this technique, as long as they are under 10 feet tall, or over 50x 1g or 2g stacked on the same pallet (see picture below, right) Contact us for Freight rates.  503-647-2700 bamboo@bamboogarden.com

During the growing season, we regularly ship large orders to wholesale customers on the East Coast, California, Oregon and Washington, Texas, Midwest, and many other states.

Local Deliveries: Members of our staff can deliver orders to locations in or near Portland, Vancouver, western Washington, Salem, Corvallis/Albany, and Eugene. Please contact us for rates. We also do local consultations, installations, and removals. Have an experienced bamboo grower and landscaper visit your site and provide insight to your project. Talk to us for details. 503-647-2700.  If you want truly large bamboo delivered to your door, usually we can find a way to make it happen for a reasonable cost.  Imagine an instant 30 foot tall screen, by 30 feet in length, to completely screen out your neighbors new 3 story monstrosity. With large timber bamboo, such as Phyllostachys,  this is a very real possibility; we do it all the time, just give us a call to discuss details. 503-647-2700

How to Transport Tall Bamboo by yourself  for local pick up and delivery.


We can ship bundles of large canes via freight truck (minimum orders value $200). The order above is a bundle of 7x canes that are 2.5" caliper by 14 feet long, shrink wrapped for safe transport. Call us for a quote.

If you are unclear please ask, we will gladly help you figure your shipping cost.

For customers in UPS Zone 3,  UPS 3 DAY AIR SHIPPING is recommended during the hottest and coldest times of the year. (or wait until the weather turns mild) Contact us for 3 DAY AIR RATES (they are usually just over  twice the cost of UPS GROUND but are guaranteed to reach you in 3 days). Certain bamboos (Fargesia, for example) are sensitive to extreme heat and should be planted in the Spring or Fall. Others (such as Phyllostachys ), love the hot weather and can be shipped by UPS GROUND and planted almost any time, except when the ground is frozen solid. If you live in California or pretty much anywhere in or west of the Rocky Mountains, Midwest, or Central we can send your plants via UPS Ground at any time of the year, barring extreme cold or heat waves.  Please call or e-mail us if you have any other questions.
