Many of the above ground swimming pools featured on this website and available online through places like Amazon are heavy and require special shipping and delivery arrangements.

If you buy your above ground pool through Amazon, there are some things you should know about heavy-item shipping and delivery.

Above ground swimming pools that weigh over 300 lbs. qualify as ultra-heavy items for Amazon.

You can check your above ground pool’s delivery and package weight in the Technical Details section of the product page – look for the Shipping Weight row.

Ultra-heavy or large above ground swimming pools are shipped through specialty carrier services. For swimming pools that qualify for Amazon Prime, you won’t be able to receive free 2-day shipping, but you will be able to have the above ground pool shipped to you for free.

Heavy above ground swimming pools will typically be dropped off at the curbside of your house or in your driveway.

Scheduling Delivery of Your Above Ground Pool

When you select the above ground pool you are going to buy online, you may see a “Scheduled Delivery” option or notation when you begin the check-out process.

Scheduled delivery allows you to pick the best time and date to receive your swimming pool.

Depending on the shipping company, you may receive a follow up phone call to confirm or alter your scheduled delivery date rather than scheduling it online during check out.

If you need to change your scheduled delivery date, you can usually do so in the “Your Orders” section of your Amazon account.

When finalizing your check-out of your above ground pool, be sure that your shipping address and phone number are up to date and correct. For large items with scheduled delivery, you cannot change your address or phone number online after you place the order.

An adult will need to be present to sign for the above ground pool when it arrives. If no one is able to sign for the package, you’ll need to rescheduled the delivery with the shipper.
