Terms and Conditions of Sale:

Shipping Charges below and above 150lbs:
Our online shopping cart checkout supports shipments through UPS and up to 150lbs. If the total shipping weight exceeds 150lbs it might be more economical to ship with an alternate carrier and the shopping cart will indicate that. You can complete the order without paying for the shipping charges at that point and we will contact you with the actual and adjusted shipping cost which can then be processed and paid for in a separate transaction. We can also provide you with a shipping cost estimate before you complete your order.

Shipping your order:
Orders received after 1 pm or on Saturdays, Sundays or on holidays will be received and processed on the first business day thereafter. If all required items are in stock, orders usually ship within 1 to 3 business business days after they have been placed except for items that show a specific delivery time on their items page. All shipments will be delivered to UPS or USPS in the afternoon. Shipping will be at our discretion through UPS ground or US Postal Service. Delivery times vary by service and distance and can range anywhere from 1 to 7 business days. For details on guaranteed delivery times, please visit and Our shipping charges are based on shipments within the continental US only. We do not ship internationally at this time. While we do our best to keep our warehouse well stocked with inventory, there is the possibility that an item is out of stock.

If UPS can not deliver during any of those three days, the shipment will be returned to us and reshipping your order will incur additional charges which could include cost of return shipping to us and cost of shipping from us to you for a second time. Therefore please ensure that someone is available at the time of delivery to receive your shipment.
