Shipping Policy

General Information

Orders are usually processed and shipped within 48 hours of receipt of your payment, or same day if your order is placed before 2:30 PM CST. Processing and delivery times on ground and/or expedited shipments are not guaranteed.

Shipping costs, included expedited shipping, are calculated during checkout based on your ship-to address, with the exception of shipments that require freight delivery.

Holiday Shipping

With more customers choosing to shop online this year, we anticipate longer shipping times than usual during the holiday season. Our team and our shipping partners are working harder than ever to make sure you receive your packages in time for the holidays, so don’t delay! Place your orders as soon as possible.

Please place orders by December 14th to ensure on-time delivery by December 25th.

Freight Delivery

Large and heavy items are shipped using a common carrier freight truck. Our shipping specialists will contact you when your order is placed to discuss your freight quote.

When scheduling your delivery

  • You must provide a valid phone number so the delivery company can reach you.
  • If you cannot be reached for your delivery, the delivery company will charge additional storage fees or return the shipment.
  • If the shipment is returned due to non-receipt, you will be charged additional shipping fees and it will result in the delayed arrival of your shipment.
  • Freight orders cannot be expedited.
  • If you cannot be reached for your delivery, Freight deliveries require access to a loading dock, unloading equipment or capable persons to unload the shipment from or truck. If that is not possible, a lift gate service can be added for an additional fee.

When receiving your delivery

  • Inspect it immediately for damage and to make sure all items are present.
  • Note all damage and/or missing items on the receipt before signing and accepting the delivery.
  • If you are unable to inspect your shipment when it is delivered, write “DAMAGED” on the receipt before signing as the freight company receives no penalties unless a claim is submitted.
  • Sign the receipt and make sure you receive a copy for your records.
  • Call our customer service representatives immediately to report any damage or missing items so they can start the claim process for damaged goods, or track down your missing items at the freight terminal.
  • If missing items are not found, the claim process will pay for replacement products.
