Shipping Charges for Prepaid Shipments

All shipments are F.O.B. shipping point. Shipping method is determined by the size and weight of each item. Most Items are consolidated onto single shipment, some items of differing size and weight may ship independently, by different methods. Most items will be sent UPS. Items that are too large or too heavy will be sent by truck. There is a minimum $60 shipping fee for truck deliveries. Someone must be present to accept truck deliveries. Standard truck delivery is directed to a dock facility that is designed to receive freight. 24 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 will pass to the customer upon tender of shipment to the carrier. If the product is damaged in transit, customer's only recourse is to file a claim with the carrier.
