Pre-Delivery Preparation

Pre-Delivery Preparation

Before we can deliver and install your new custom project, we require a correctly prepared work space. This checklist agreement is designed to assist you and / or your general contractor in preparing the area(s) that we require. If there is any issue or anticipated issue with the space, please notify Norcab at least 48 hours prior to the delivery date. The earlier we are aware of the situation, the sooner we and we can take appropriate actions to ensure a smooth delivery and installation.


  • Please ensure all walls are prepared for the installation. All framing and drywall work must be completed. Drywall mud must be fully cured and sanded before we install our product. First coat of paint prior to our installation is optional, but recommended. Walls should be plumb and square for installation.

  • Please ensure the ceiling is prepared for the installation. All structure and drywall work must completed. Drywall mud must be fully cured and sanded before we install our product.

Please check with your flooring vendor regarding warranty of floor with cabinetry sitting atop.

  • Please ensure a clear path for the delivery of our product. Remember, at times our products can be very large and we will need additional space for staging and work areas.
