SHIPPING RATES

For a domestic shipping estimate, please add items to your shopping cart and proceed through checkout to view rates. Shipping rates are automatically calculated during the checkout process. Shipping weights are calculated in ounces. NOTE: a UPS surcharge will be applied to orders shipping to any address classified as Residential. To avoid a higher shipping rate, we recommend shipping to a business/commercial address.

We offer Free UPS Ground Shipping to the contiguous United States on orders totaling $350.00 or more. Order total must be $350 or more after any discounts are applied and does not include tax (sales tax applied to orders shipping to Texas only). Some products may be excluded from flat rate or free shipping offers. Free shipping is not available to Hawaii, Alaska or other US territories we may service.

FULFILLMENT TIME

Orders for in-stock items will be shipped via the selected UPS or USPS Shipping Service within 24 hours of the order being placed, Monday through Friday, excluding holidays or during other posted warehouse closures. Usually, most orders for in-stock items received by 12 PM CST (Monday - Friday) will ship the same day. If an order for in-stock items isn’t shipped the same day, it will be shipped the next business day.

TRANSIT TIME

The delivery estimate shown at checkout when placing your order online is an estimate based on the date the order is shipped, not the date the order is placed.

Example: If you choose a shipping method that indicates "2 Business Days," it is 2 business days from the date your order ships. It is not "2 Business Days" from the date your order is placed.

USPS does not guarantee their delivery estimates.

Please see UPS Ground Transit Time Map for delivery estimates.

BACKORDERED ITEMS

If an item is unavailable at the time of your order, we will notify you as soon as possible. You have the option of waiting for the item to be restocked (we will provide our best ETA on when you should expect to receive the item) or you may choose to receive a refund for that item. Additionally, if your order contains a backordered item, we will ship the in-stock items from your order first. When the backordered item is restocked, it will be shipped to you with no additional shipping charge.
