Shipping & Returns

Our Shipping Policy


1) Free shipping is available for Zen Bathworks brand wooden Ofuro soaking tubs and Cedar Hot Tubs sent to most addresses in all US States and Canada.

2) Non-wooden products ship for free to the contiguous 48 United States and Canada. 

3) Small accessory items ordered with tubs or showers may ship for free if they can be packaged with the larger item. If ordered/shipped separately, extra shipping charges will apply.

4) Shipping will be by common LTL carrier with liftgate service for addresses without loading docks and/or forklifts (please let us know if you have a loading dock and/or a forklift available for unloading the crate(s)). In some locations liftgate and/or curbside delivery is unavailable. In those instances, shipments are delivered to terminal only for will-call pickup by you, the customer or your representative.

5) Shipping to international (excluding Canada) and US Territory destinations, is NOT free. Very roughly you can expect about $400 to $1500 extra shipping charge (NOT including customs and duties fees). We do NOT guarantee shipping to all international destinations. Availability and exact rates of extra charges are quoted upon request. Please contact us.

6) We reserve the right to add shipping charges for remote or difficult to reach locations.

7) Receipt of damaged wooden tubs should be reported to Zen Bathworks immediately upon receipt but no later than 4 days from delivery.  

8) Receipt of damaged non-wooden products, including acrylic tubs, sinks, showers, toilets, and fill fixtures must be reported to Zen Bathworks immediately (same day of delivery).  

In all cases, your order will be professionally packed and/or crated for safe transport within a sturdy, handcrafted, enclosed crate. This image features an example of how we prepare our wooden tubs for shipment.
