To guarantee your order, all back ordered merchandise will be charged at this time and will ship as soon as they become available. You will not be charged additional shipping on backordered items.

OVERSIZED FREIGHT SHIPMENTS:

Please note that shipping charges online are estimated and do not take into account multiple packages, oversized packages or insurance. Actual shipping charges will be calculated when your order is processed. If there is a significant increase in shipping your order will be held and you will be contacted. We apologize in advance for any inconvenience this may cause you.

If your order is palletized, weighs more than 70 pounds, or measures more than 72 inches on the longest side, we may be required to ship via freight carrier. This means that your shipment will be delivered on a semi trailer and will thus require either a loading dock, forklift, and or optional lift gate delivery service. Please note, the average height of a freight truck bed is four feet off ground level, making it very difficult to unload heavy or tall items without a loading dock or forklift. Lift gate delivery service may be purchased at the time of order to ensure safe unloading at the time of delivery. It is the customer's responsibility to remove the product from the truck.

 

STANDARD FREIGHT:

Delivery transit times typically range from 3-7 business days after shipment. Transit times are estimates only and are not guaranteed. Standard delivery is designed for delivery locations equipped with a loading dock or forklift on-site. Additional delivery options, including lift gate delivery service may be purchased for an additional fee. Lift gate delivery service will not be included unless you request it with your order. After an order has been shipped we cannot change the delivery service while the truck is en route.

 

EXPEDITED FREIGHT:

Expedited shipments are guaranteed in most cases. Transit times vary for expedited delivery depending on the delivery location and the service level requested. Contact our customer service team at (800) 459-5594 to discuss expedited delivery options, including transit times and pricing. Expedited delivery is designed for delivery locations equipped with a loading dock or forklift on-site. Additional delivery options, including lift gate delivery service may be purchased for an additional fee. Lift gate delivery service will not be included unless you request it with your order.
