Frequently Asked Freight Questions:

Q: How much will shipping cost?

A: Orders under $3500 will be charged the shipping rate per trucking company you choose. If you do not choose a trucking company, we will select the lowest cost carrier to your destination. Transit times vary by carrier. Rates depend on postal code and total weight of your order.

Q: Are machinery and equipment items included in flat rate freight program?

A: Yes

Q: When do I need a lift gate, and why is there a fee?

A: A lift gate is a special feature on a delivery truck that can help mechanically
load or unload merchandise without a ramp, dock or forklift.
It is basically a hydraulic lifting platform attached to the back of the
truck. Some small orders can be easily unloaded by hand, but if the
merchandise is large or multiple pallets and you do not have unloading
equipment, a lift gate will allow your order to be removed from the truck
quickly and easily. A lift gate delivery costs a little more since the trucking company
will have to make special arrangements to use a truck equipped with a
lift gate to deliver your order, but it is often far less complicated and expensive
than renting a forklift or hiring extra help to unload. Note that
liftgates, residential and Saturday delivery are an additional charge.

Q: How do I know if my order will be shipped as freight on a pallet or as a small package?

A: Our order processors will determine this when you place your
order. The answer is determined by the weight and nature of the
products you need. Generally, if your shipment is over about 250 lbs,
it will be cheaper and easier to freight it to you. Some products
(bulky, overweight, etc.) must be palletized as they cannot be handled
as a small package.

Q: Do you ship to HI, AK, PR, Canada, Mexico, or International?

A: Yes, absolutely. Please call us for more details as each destination
is handled differently.

Q: When will my merchandise arrive?

A: Many of our orders are taken early enough that we can schedule
the merchandise to arrive to the desired location during the week shipping window you specify.
We recommend ordering early and specify delivery week to take advantage of this option.
We can typically ship to the western 2/3rds of the country in 1-3 days,
and 3-5 days to locations east of the Mississippi River. Expedited and
overnight shipping may also be available in emergencies, please call.
