We do our best to ensure that shipping is accurately calculated in your shopping cart at the time of purchase, however, at times, it may not be possible to do so accurately (e.g. rural delivery locations, shipments requiring multiple pallets, living on an island, etc.). Should this occur, you’d be notified of any additional charges necessary to deliver your order. If you are notified of any additional charges, you will have the right to modify or cancel your order for a full refund.

Shipping Methods and Transit Times

We strive for excellent fulfillment rates. Orders may be fulfilled directly by the manufacturer or distributor in an effort to reduce the shipping time.

If you order more than one item, we’ll make every effort to send available items together. Depending on availability, an order may ship from several locations. If we decide to break your order into multiple packages, you will NOT incur any additional freight/shipping charges. Tracking information will be sent to the email address provided on the order for each portion of the shipment.

What are the Different Shipping Options?

We ship via USPS and other common carriers that provide insurance and tracking. Some shipments must be signed for while others may be left at the driver’s discretion. Items shipped via standard ground are generally delivered within 2-3 business days but can take anywhere from 1-6 business days. Shipping times do not include up to 24 hours for processing.
