Factors that may contribute to additional lead time for Suncatcher Enclosures:

Because we are a custom build to order manufacture with a vast array of options, certain options may contribute to lead times being somewhat longer than other units. Here are some of those factors for Suncatcher enclosures and general rule of thumb on the effect on the lead time:

Stainless Steel Roofs: Enclosures with stainless steel roofs will typically add 5-10 business days to the standard 20-25 day lead time.
Custom Color: Custom colors are available and typically add 10-15 business days to the standard lead time in most cases.
Extra Large Enclosures: Enclosures >250 cubic feet (height x length x depth) can require additional time for fabrication and may add some additional lead time in some cases. This will be evaluated case by case depending on our current inventory of parts and workload, typically this will had 10-15 days to our standard 20-25 business day lead time.
Rectangular Shaped Enclosures: Because our rectangular enclosures are available in so many different sizes, it can add to the lead time. Our round/polygon shapes typically have shorter lead times because they have more common parts that we inventory in advanced. Since there are so many possible sizes of rectangular enclosures, many are built completely from scratch, one at a time, which is what contributes to some additional lead time due to additional time for fabrication, powder coating, and other factors. We estimate 10-15 business days in addition to the 20-25 standard business day lead time for most rectangular shapes.

Hybrid Enclosures & Accessory Only Orders

Standard: Arrives at your door in 20-25 business days in most cases.
Priority: Arrives at your door in 10-15 business days in most cases.

Some exceptions may apply to rates on our shipping and handling table. Rates are good for contiguous U.S. only. If outside this area, please call for a quote. WI residents, add 5% Sales Tax.

Note: Lead times shown are estimates only and are accurate in most cases. If order is placed after noon central time, lead time will start the following day. An order is considered placed once payment in full clears. Lead times for orders containing only accessories are much quicker than indicated for cage setups. Shipping and handling is not refunded under any circumstance. No refund will be given if delivery is attempted and nobody receives the package.
