Most of our products ship via UPS or FedEx, using their standard rates.
Items exceeding UPS's weight limits are shipped by a freight carrier.
All freight deliveries will arrive on a dock height semi-truck, which is approximately 52 inches high.
Liftgate is strongly recommended for any product above 50 Pounds.
Liftgate service would include the delivery of merchandise from the back of the truck to the curb ONLY.
Inside delivery is additional and will have to be scheduled when placing your order.
If freight is attempted to deliver and you are not available your order is subject to a redelivery fee.
The driver is not responsible to lower the product from the truck; they are simply the transport agent from one location to another.
Shipping amount calculated on our site is an estimate and actual shipping costs from manufacturer may vary once order is confirmed from shipping location;
Shipping costs are estimated.
Some large and heavy items do not ship via UPS and appropriate freight transportation will be arranged.
If you are ordering products and the estimated cost is $0.00, the weight or size of a product, or the combination of all of the products you are purchasing is larger than a single package that can be shipped via UPS.
We will contact you to arrange for shipping that meets your needs.
