Delivery & Installation Information

 

One of the greatest benefits when buying from MichiganHeadstones.com is that we offer Free delivery and installation within the lower Peninsula of Michigan! (Upper Peninsula or out of state deliveries are available at an additional charge). This makes us different from national on-line companies which utilize third party shipping companies to ship to your home or cemetery. National online companies require you to arrange both the inspection upon delivery and the installation in the cemetery. This is difficult because most rural, church and city cemeteries are not staffed during normal business hours and have no one available to accept delivery and they do not install headstones. Furthermore, cemeteries will not be responsible for inspection or any damage to the marker or headstone. MichiganHeadstones.com will personally delivery and install your loved one’s marker or headstone.

* Free delivery and installation in the lower peninsula of Michigan and does not include the cemetery foundation or any other applicable cemetery fees.

Headstones & Grave Markers:
Headstones and grave markers are delivered and installed on the grave, unless the cemetery rules require cemetery staff install the headstone or marker. If the cemeteries rules require the cemetery to install the marker or headstone on the grave, we will deliver it to the designated location within the cemetery. Delivery time is determined by order specifics and is normally 6 – 8 weeks for in stock granite markers, upright headstones, benches and bronze markers, 10 – 12 weeks for out of stock items and up to 16 – 20 weeks for custom orders. All orders will be processed only after the receipt of payment, cemetery, and layout approval. Additional design elements (custom bronze designs, custom designs, portraits, etc.) may extend the delivery time. Michigan Headstones™ delivers all cemetery markers, upright headstones, and benches within the lower peninsula of Michigan.

Note: All schedules; including but not limited to; proofs, production, shipping and delivery are estimates (please do not make plans until you know the marker or headstone has been delivered to the cemetery).
