Customer Service

Shipping & Delivery
New lower shipping prices – WHY?
Thanks to you... we’ve grown, and grown, and grown...
Due to our high volume with the shipping companies, our rates have dropped and we are passing the savings on to you.
So while fuel surcharges are rising, and freight companies are gouging... We are passing on greater savings to you!
  • Unlike most online stores that "pad" their shipping cost, or charge "shipping & handling" we do not. We calculate shipping for your order live, online - to give you the best rates based upon our cost of shipping the product. You get to view the shipping rates and select your shipping choice online at checkout or by Toll Free call if you prefer, before completing order and paying.
  • In fact, if we have to split the order into multiple shipments, we pick up the extra.
  • The only time you might pay extra would be special handling, website error, or miscalculation.

Our default shipping method is FedEx Ground. FedEx cannot deliver to PO Boxes, so please provide a physical address, or email or give us a call toll free for quotes on other shipping methods if you only have a PO, APO, or FPO..

Shipping fees are for Ground delivery to the 48 contiguous US States only.

We offer shipping worldwide, but minimum order quantities apply and rates will vary to other areas. Some of these fees are available through the online checkout process. If you do not find the shipping option you require during the checkout process, please submit your order via Fax using the order form, or email or give us a call toll free for assistance.

48 State orders are usually shipped within 1-2 Business Days via FedEx Ground or similar carrier. Delivery guaranteed in 1-14 business days, barring unforeseen circumstances. In the event of outside circumstances preventing us from maintaining this policy, we will contact you via the email address or telephone number you provide us with your order.

Our standard shipping guarantee is 1-14 business days, as stated above, but most orders ship within 24-48 hours via FedEx ground, thereby arriving MUCH sooner, however, we cannot guarantee anything other than our stated policy of 1-14 business days, unless you pay for Express Shipping. Note: We deliver without a signature requirement to save you money, if you require a signature, an additional fee applies. You must notify us when placing the order that you wish to add the signature required option and fee, or we cannot be responsible for packages left without signature.

International, APO, and other "Special" Deliveries vary - prices quoted in checkout process are approximate, should the carriers assess additional fees, or require additional handling, you may be contacted for additional payment before your order ships.

Please note, we will endeavor to provide as much information as we can to assist you with International orders, but we cannot be aware of all policies, duties, fees, and regulations of every Country and Import/Customs Department worldwide. Any information we provide for International orders is tentative, and our responsibilities and liabilities for your order end at the US Border.

Express shipping quoted online is for expedited processing after the 1-2 business days order processing. While we make every effort to ship in stock Express orders the same day they are placed (if placed by Noon Pacific) out of stock items or items requiring drop-shipping from the Manufacturers may not ship for 1-3 business days after you place the order - the express time (overnight, two day, 3 day) you select will begin at the time of actual shipment. When considering Express Shipping, please remember that shipping carriers do not count weekends or holidays, so - as an example - an overnight order shipped on a Friday would arrive Monday typically,
If ground shipping will achieve the same result, our order processing may choose to expedite processing, and still ship via Ground if result will be the same.
