Q: What shipping methods do you use?
All of our smaller, ground orders are shipped with a parcel carrier like FedEx or UPS for domestic and FedEx for international orders. If you need a ground order guaranteed for delivery faster than the standard transit time, we offer Next Day or Second Day delivery for qualifying shipments. For larger, palletized orders we use a nationwide network of freight carriers. Standard LTL/Freight carrier is curbside delivery.
Q: What is LTL/Freight shipping?
LTL/Freight shipping is necessary when an order is too large or heavy to be delivered ground by UPS or FedEx. These items will be delivered to your location by a tractor trailer. Standard LTL/Freight delivery is curbside and does not include unloading the merchandise or delivering it inside your location. You are responsible for unloading the items from the back of the truck and bringing the shipment inside your establishment. If you are not able to do this yourself, please consider adding a Liftgate, which is an additional service and will need to be selected when finalizing your order through checkout. If a delivery is attempted and you are not there to receive a redelivery fee is applicable.
Q: How much will it cost to ship my order?
You can calculate an estimated shipping cost before you check out right in the shopping cart! To calculate shipping charges, add your items to the shopping cart. Just below the subtotal, you will see the Shipping and Handling Calculator. Be sure to correctly choose "business" or "residential", enter your zip or postal code, then click "Calculate". This will provide estimated shipping costs for the items in your cart.
Certain large and/or heavy items will be shipped via a LTL/Freight service. These items are indicated as such on the product description page as well as in the shopping cart upon checkout. All other orders ship with a small package carrier like FedEx. Occasionally, when large quantities of items are ordered, we may opt to use a LTL/Freight service for smaller sized items. Whether your order will be shipping via small package or LTL/Freight carrier, the online shipping estimate will tell you exactly how much you will be charged for shipping.
Q: I operate a business from my home; can I select "commercial" when entering my shipping address during checkout?
No, you must still select "residential" in your shopping cart because the carriers still consider your address residential.
Q: Do you ship to PO or APO/FPO boxes?
No, we only ship to physical addresses.
Q: Can I request that my order be delivered at a certain time?
Select "Call Before Delivery" under the shipping options during checkout.
Q: What does Call Before Delivery Mean?

If you are unavailable to accept your delivery during the scheduled appointment, you will be responsible for any redelivery fees owed to the carrier. Additional fees will apply if you require a time-specific delivery in which the typical 4-hour window needs to be shortened.
Q: The LTL/Freight carrier didn't show to my appointment! What's Next?
If the carrier misses the delivery appointment, they will reschedule it.
Q: I didn't set up a scheduled delivery time. What's Next?
If a delivery is unable to be completed because a "Call Before Delivery" was not selected during checkout, the carrier may charge a redelivery fee in order to reattempt delivery. In these situations, we will contact you via email regarding the fee and will require an approval to charge any fees necessary, in order to avoid additional delays or penalties with the carrier.
Q: Do I need a lift gate for my shipment?
If you do not have an elevated loading dock or forklift to unload your items from the truck, you will need a liftgate and must select this option at checkout. Dock height is approximately 52 high and is standard. The "LTL/Freight Carrier w/ Liftgate" option includes the fee for the liftgate. A higher fee may apply if a liftgate must be added after an order has shipped. If delivery is unable to be completed because a liftgate was not selected during checkout, a redelivery fee may apply in addition to a liftgate fee. In these situations, we will contact you via email regarding the appropriate fees and require authorization of payment if necessary in order to avoid additional delays or penalties with the carrier.
Some larger items may be too large or heavy for a lift gate and will require a truck-level loading dock or a Fork Lift Service to coordinate with the delivery. If you do not have access to either option, we recommend contacting a local moving company to arrange inside delivery
