Shipping and Returns



Shipping Policy 

We strive to ship out items the same day or within 24 hours from when the order is placed. ITEMS in stock usually ship within 24-72 business hours from when the order is placed. Unless on back order, too large, or heavy, to ship via UPS, Fed-Ex, USPS. For more information on your order please contact us 1-(866)272-9880. Buyer is responsible for all freight expenses, unless otherwise specified upon written agreed conditions. Specifications, prices and delivery are subject to change without notice.

Shipping charges are calculated based on the actual weight, distance traveled and type of shipping service you specify (ground, second day, next day). 

All shipments are F.O.B. shipping point. Shipping method is determined by the size and weight of each item. Items of differing size and weight may ship independently, by different methods, even if ordered together. Most items will be sent UPS. Items that are too large or too heavy will be sent by truck. Someone must be present to accept truck deliveries. Standard truck delivery is to a dock facility designed to receive freight. Twenty-four hour notification, residential deliveries, lift gate, or inside deliveries are available for an additional charge.

Unless otherwise stated, freight and shipping fees will be charged for shipments to anywhere in the contiguous United States, using a carrier of our choice.  Other terms apply to Alaska, Hawaii, Puerto Rico, and export orders.  Any extra charges incurred for additional services, such as customer's carrier or special handling by the carrier, must be paid by the consignee.  Items backordered from an order qualifying for prepaid shipping charges will be shipped prepaid.  Title and risk of loss pass to the customer upon tender of shipment to the carrier.

Collect Shipments

We will gladly ship via your specified carrier however; we will not ship with certain carriers due to poor experience.


UPS Dimensional Weight

Determine the package dimensions in inches. Multiply the package length by the width by the height (LxWxH). For each dimension, measure at the longest point, rounding each measurement to the nearest whole number. The result is the cubic size in inches.

For domestic shipments:

UPS Air Services shipments: Divide the cubic size in inches by 166 to determine dimensional weight in pounds. Increase any fraction to the next whole pound.

UPS Ground shipments: If the cubic size of the package in inches is 5,184 or larger, divide the cubic size by 166 to determine dimensional weight in pounds:

                  Example: If Package (A) is: 18" x 18" x 18" = 5832

                  Divide cubic size (L x W x H) by 166:  5832 / 166 = 35.13 - Billable weight is 36 lbs,
                  regardless of actual product weight.
