How a bird cage is delivered to your home

How a bird cage is delivered to your home

Let’s start at the beginning – Your parrot cage probably was built somewhere in Asia. (If they built them in the USA we’d sell them)

A robot (with a great personality) was used to build your cage – The factory is modern and all measures are taken to insure the bird cages sells – are bird safe!

At the factory, the cages are placed in cargo containers, then placed on a large ship destined for an American port

After the containers clear Homeland Security, the bird cages are trucked to one of our distribution centers

The cages are removed from the containers – it takes 2 men about a day.

When we get the order we’ll usually is ship the bird cage in 2 boxes

(This picture is representative and may not be the exact boxes your cage arrives in)

The taller box is 74″ Tall x 41″ Wide x 5″ deep and weighs 114 pounds. The smaller box is 31″ Tall x 41″ wide x 5″ deep and weighs 38 pounds


The trucking company will call you to schedule a delivery.

The palleted bird cage will arrive on a semi-trailer-truck (unless a smaller truck is requested due to street limitations) The driver may help you take it off the truck but he is not obligated unless you paid an additional $100 for lift gate service

They will arrive on a pallet and look something like this –
there will be additional protection on the corners & sides

They’ll be strapped to the pallet for a combined weight (including the pallet) of about 197 pounds. Your bird cage will have traveled more than 12,000 miles by the time it reaches your home

Then unless you have one of these………….

You have either carry the boxes in OR as I’ve done many times open the large box and bring each piece in one-at-a-time (fork lifts are really tough on carpet anyway) Apartment and condo dwellers – we feel your pain
