Preparing for Delivery
Choose the placement location for your new cabinet
Consider outlet access, ventilation, flooring, door swing clearance, weight and room temperature.
Consider the Delivery Path
Move any obstacles that may impede delivery, such as furniture, door frames, ceiling heights, door knobs and lighting fixtures. Try to clear the way as much as possible before delivery. Keep in mind that our cabinets are large pieces of furniture. If the delivery team cannot deliver the cabinet to your desired location and you wish to return it, you will be responsible for the shipping charges as well as a restocking fee.
Cabinet Delivery - What to Expect

Removing the Packaging
Before we pack and ship every order from our Petaluma facility, we open, assemble, inspect, and repackage all merchandise to make sure that your cabinet is in perfect condition when it leaves our warehouse.
At the time of delivery, you are responsible for inspecting both the packaging and the merchandise. If you find damage to your cabinet, in order for us to file a claim with the carrier, the following information MUST be described on the bill of lading before the carrier departs:
- The condition of packaging, including a description of any damage
- The color of the Shockwatch indicator (or its absence if missing)
- The condition of the cabinet, including a description of any damage
Please call Vineyard Wine Cellars (866-973-1100) before the delivery professionals leave the delivery site in the event of damage. Failure to follow these instructions may result in a denied insurance claim and/or billing for nonrefundable freight charges.
In the event of freight damage, the freight company has, at its discretion, the right to replace damaged merchandise or to repair it, provided that the wine cabinet is in "as new" condition after the repair.
