Shipping Fees and Information

We have a simple shipping policy that will help you “Save on Shipping Costs”. For Shipping Heavy and Oversized Items we ship via common freight carrier. We will be glad to provide you quote prior to completion of a transaction.

There are a few exceptions:

Expedited Shipping
We ship via FedEx and/or UPS Service such as FedEx Ground and/or UPS Ground, 3 Day Select, 2nd Day Air, Next Day Air Saver and Next Day Air. This is calculated based on both weight and dimensions and to the destination zip code. Our shopping cart will figure this cost for you and in most cases is pretty accurate. If in doubt you can also call or email us with your zip code and the item(s) that you are looking for and we will be happy to calculate the rate for you.

Our cut off time for expedited services is 12 pm E.S.T. Monday – Friday. If you are really in a bind and it is after 12 pm call us and we will try to get your order out the same day.

Alaska, Hawaii and Puerto Rico Shipments

We are happy to ship to these areas by FedEx and/or UPS Ground, UPS 2nd Day and Next Day Air shipping to most areas of Alaska, Hawaii and Puerto Rico. The shopping cart will calculate actual charges through the FedEx and/or UPS system. We cannot ship to PO Boxes or APO/AE. For Puerto Rico – Please choose Puerto Rico as your Country at checkout to get an accurate rate. Usually it is best not to choose Next Day Air as we have heard that they still take 2 business days.
