Due to the nature of our business, it is impossible for us to pre determine your exact shipping charges on most items. Our facility uses different sized boxes, different packing material, not to mention freight companies fuel surcharge fees change weekly etc. Several shipping agencies now base their rate on dimension weight versus actual weight whichever is greater. Thus the size of the box comes into play on each and every transaction. We ask for your understanding on this process.
Therefore, what will happen is we will input an order which will be sent to our warehouse to pack (if you have ordered more than one item we will do our best to combine shipping to insure maximum benefit). It will then go to our shipping dept where they will contact an appropriate shipping agent to get your final charges. Please allow 3-5 business (M-F) days for a parts, 5-6 business (M-F) days for equipment days for this process. Once your shipping charge has been calculated you will either be contacted and asked for payment or if we have your credit card on file then you will be billed for the total amount. Any questions or concerns please contact us.
For items shipping Fed Ex ground transport with a value of $500 or over we are required by Fed Ex to send it with signature required. Meaning someone of legal age must be available to sign and take possession of order at delivery address. If this would cause a problem please communicate with your sales team member and request to ship via UPS ground instead of Fed Ex.
IMPORTANT: IF YOUR ITEM IS A LARGE ITEM AND IS MARKED AS GOING FREIGHT. THIS MEANS IT WILL BE SHIPPED VIA FREIGHT TRUCK/SEMI THEREFORE DO NOT MAKE A PAYMENT. OUR WEBSITE CAN NOT CALCULATE FREIGHT SHIPPING CHARGES. SO PLEASE GIVE US TIME TO CONTACT A TRUCKING COMPANY FOR YOU.
