Shipping

Small packages are shipped via US Postal service or UPS. Larger packages may ship via UPS (Ground, 3rd Day 2nd Day or Next Day). FedEx service available on request. Shipping charges are additional and will be determined at time of actual shipment not at time of your online checkout.  Customers are responsible for shipping and handling charges (some exceptions may apply).  Shipping charges are set forth by the carrier(s) not by us.  Rates are determined by actual and or dimensional weight along with shipping destination zones as set forth by UPS and US Postal service.  We will always try to send your parcel by the least expensive method and in as compact and economical a parcel as safely possible.  We are very sensitive to our clients shipping charge concerns.  We will only charge exact shipping prices as set forth by the shipping carrier's published rates.  Our handling charge will not be more than $2.50 unless a very customized order or shipment requirement is pre-arranged.

If you would like a call or email with the exact shipping charges, please indicate this in your comments on the check out page.

Please note:
When you Checkout upon completion of your order submission, your credit card info. has been securely "received" but has NOT been charged thru our online checkout portal. Once the order is actually filled, packed, weighed and ready to ship, then your credit card will be charged for the amount indicated on the checkout page plus Shipping charges and a nominal handling charge (usually less than $2.00).

You may request a phone call notification or an electronic invoice with exact shipping & handling charges along with a tracking number to be emailed to you, by stating so in the "comments" field on the checkout page.

We will then run your credit card in-house upon your approval of indicated shipping & handling charges. If no comment is left to contact you with exact shipping charges, we will automatically charge your card and ship your parcel according to the lowest published rate that we can get for UPS or USPS.

Small packages are generally shipped via US Postal service. Parcels to the East coast, HI, AK or small residential deliveries will typically go via US Postal either as First Class mail (if under 13oz) or as Priority or Flat rate Priority mail. Larger packages may ship via UPS Ground (default), or via UPS 3 Day, 2nd Day or Next Day (depending upon client requests). FedEx service is available upon request but is less convenient for us and may incur a larger handling fee due to extra steps involved. International shipments will generally go by US Postal service. Actual international freight and customs charges apply. If you would like us to ship on your own UPS or FedEx account, please provide your shipping account # in the comments field of our Checkout page and indicate which carrier to use and which delivery method you want.
