Shipping Information

FREE SHIPPING

Free shipping applies to most orders over $150 sent standard ground service by a carrier of our choice within the lower 48 states. The items included/excluded from the offer are subject to change without notice. Custom items may be excluded from the free shipping offer. Due to the ever-rising cost of outbound shipping, any order with back-ordered item(s) may be held until the back-ordered item(s) arrives.

You are responsible for any small parcel, expedited, and/or freight/LTL costs for any items not eligible for our free shipping offer. Freight is figured by dimensional weight, call (800) 720-1134 for a freight quote. Please be advised that freight shipments may require slightly more time to process and deliver compared to standard shipping methods.

Next day, 2nd Day & 3rd Day Air shipments are available at an additional cost.

SALES TAX

When applicable, we are required to collect sales tax by law. Exemptions for sales tax will be allowed if you have either a signed Certificate of Resale or an Exemption Certificate. The tax forms vary by state, please call for details. Law requires that we have these certificates on file before any tax exemption can be allowed.

Sales tax is a combined total of state, county, city, and district tax rates. These rates are based on either the shipment-origin address, or the ship-to address, as dictated by each state’s tax law. For your convenience, we provide a sales-tax estimate during checkout, and on your order confirmation summary. However, many factors can change between the time you place your order and when it ships. Because of this, your final sales-tax charges may be different from the estimated amount. Tax-exempt purchases will show estimated sales tax at checkout and on your order confirmation summary. Once the order ships, the invoice will reflect your exemption
