Or, better yet…do you deliver?

Yes we do! We have a brand new cargo van for fast delivery Monday – Friday. Our flatbed truck is also available for larger orders. Simply request delivery when you submit your order we will include delivery times and pricing with your quote.

How quick are deliveries?

It depends. For stock materials, usually within a couple of hours. We don’t want you standing around on the job site now do we! Custom cutting orders will take longer, depending on the quantity, but we do our best to get them out the next day.

Do you cut wood that was not purchased from Midtown Lumber?

Yes we do! As long as we determine that it is safe for us to cut. Price is based on exactly what we will be cutting, so feel free to stop by with your materials and we will see what we can do.

Do I have to purchase full sheets of material, or can I just buy the pieces that I want?

At Midtown Lumber, you have the choice to purchase full sheets or pieces. Certain materials are only sold by the sheet. Please call us for more information.

How accurate is your cutting?
