Orders Shipped by Freight
Some items in bulk quantities may be to large to be shipped by a parcel carrier such as UPS. These items will need to be shipped via Freight carriers and additional charges will be applied to orders accordingly. You will be notified if your order does not meet the requirements for standard shipment by one of our customer service agents. All necessary charges will be applied to your order after the shipment has been picked up. Please keep in mind when ordering in bulk quantities the method of how you will be receiving your order.
The freight rates vary week to week depending on fuel cost.
The policy when we ship via common carrier we call for the freight charges after the product was picked up. This ensures that the cost for the shipment is correct and we bill the next day. All orders that need freight shipment will be notified before we ship the order.
