Installation Overview

NOTE: Purchasing professional installation through our website directly is currently unavailable. We recommend reaching out to installers in your area to see if they're available for installation.

Proper installation of your Gorilla Playset plays an important role in the safety of your children as well as the integrity of the product. Although each one of our swing sets come with detailed assembly instructions that only require basic household tools and a light to moderate level of mechanical ability, some folks simply don’t have the time (or patience) to take on such a project.

If you fall into the latter group, Gorilla Playsets is here to help! Whether you order installation online or order directly through one of our Authorized Showroom locations, you can be assured of a safe installation that will have your kids outside playing in no time, without adding another project to your ‘to-do’ list.

Note: Please wait until you receive the set and have inspected it for any damage before scheduling your appointment with the installer. Gorilla Playsets is not responsible for any fees incurred for installation appointments scheduled before the product has been received and all parts accounted for.

If you purchase installation on our website:

  • We will contact you via email within 2 business days of receiving your order to a) confirm that installation is available in your area and b) to have you acknowledge that your yard is properly prepared and ready for a swing set to be installed. See ‘Selecting a Site’ and ‘Terms and Conditions’ below. If your yard does not meet the criteria listed, we cannot process your order or coordinate installation.
  • Delivery of your swing set will occur by common carrier. The carrier will call you for an appointment so that you can be there to accept and sign for the swing set. The driver will unload your swing set via curbside delivery. This is typically where your driveway meets the street. If you’d like to arrange for a delivery location beyond curbside, you must arrange these services directly with the carrier when they call for an appointment. Any and all charges for additional delivery options will be at your expense.
  • Installation of your swing set usually occurs from 1-3 weeks from ship date from our factory in Canton, GA. We will do our best to coordinate the installation within 5 days of delivery to your home however, unforeseen circumstances such as the logistical or mechanical abilities of the carrier and/or weather-related issues can cause us to alter our installation schedule.
  • Installation costs shown online include most locations throughout the contiguous United States. For the occasional case of remote locations, additional mileage charges may apply and will be discussed with you prior to processing your order. If there is not an installer in your area, you will be notified right away with refund options.
