At Houston Barrels we prioritize your container needs by putting ourselves in your shoes. We strive to provide you with honest,thoughtful, no-frills business, quality products, and fair prices.
Where do you get your barrels from?
I purchase my barrels from all over the states and I do my best to quality check most to all barrels that come in to my facility.
What comes in the barrels?
Houston barrels normally tries to keep an inventory of predominately food grade containers and when other containers are purchased it is made evidently clear to customers what came in them and that they are not for anything involving human, animal, nor plant consumption.
Why are certain barrels priced differently than others?
Barrels are priced based upon cost, supply, demand, and market value.
What are your weekend hours?
We are closed on Weekends
Are all of the containers you have for sale listed on your website?
No. Only the barrels that are most frequently in stock will be listed on the website. Feel free to ask about other barrels by phone or before you come.
Do you deliver?
Yes, the Minimum Order Total for any delivery is $300. The Delivery Charge is $2.50/mile with a minimum charge of $50 for any delivery. Maximum delivery range is the 60 mile radius from the 77002 zip code of Downtown Houston.
Do you offer discounts?
Please Ask about Ugly Drums and Check Facebook Page for Monthly and Seasonal Discounts.
Can I use the barrels for Drinking water?
Legally, no one is allowed to sell used drums for drinking water. It’s not recommended due to the not so small chance that any/all particulates are not completely cleaned from a used food drum and that some mold or bacteria may form due to such. Just to be fair, it’s also unlikely and ill-advised for me to follow you home and tell you what I think you should do with whatever you spend your money on.
What forms of payment do you accept?
Cash and Card (Visa, MC, Discover, Amex)
Can I pay online?
In order for Houston Barrels to invoice you we need you to email your full name or billable business name, best number for contact, Billing address on the card you’ll be using to pay, and most importantly your billing email address. Please DO NOT send me any CC info over the phone or via email. After receiving the information requested above, I’ll email you a secure link through www.Squareup.com invoicing which you can use to pay while keeping your info secure.
Do you accept returns or Exchanges?
Once a container leaves Houston Barrels, we can no longer guarantee it is food grade. That being the case, we do not accept Returns nor Exchanges
