Delivery Estimates

The order summary in Your Account may show a shipping delivery estimate. We do our best to accurately estimate when items will ship from our facilities. Estimated shipping dates are based on several factors, including how quickly we can pack and ship items for your order.

Shipping time is a combination of the following: the time from order placement till shipment, together with the time your order is in transit, equals the total time to get your product.

Shipping Time

Time From Order Placement

Normal processing time before shipment is one to two business days. Not all items listed on our website are immediately available and may take additional time to obtain each product before we can ship them to you.

Shipping Methods

When you select any of the following methods of shipment, we may choose to elevate shipping as necessary to get your items to you within the appropriate time frame. We use a variety of carriers for each shipping option. It is not possible to specify a preferred carrier when placing your order. Below is the estimated transit time for items via each method of shipping.

  • Freight Shipments (LTL) - Generally take 7 to 10 business days
  • Ground Shipping - Generally takes 3 to 7 business days
  • 3 Day Select - Geneally takes 3 business days
  • 2nd Day Air - Generally takes 2 business days
  • Next Day Air - Generally delivered the next business day

Selecting Next Day Air, 2nd Day Air, or 3 Day Select does not guarantee your order will arrive in one, two or three days. Also be aware that there are typically no weekend pickups or deliveries for certain shipping methods.

Delivery Date

If the order is past an estimated delivery date and you have not received it, please contact customer service and we would be happy to check on the status of your order. Orders shipped via a trackable method, such as UPS, should have tracking information available in the order summary in Your Account. Please check this information if available and review the following options:

If the tracking information indicates the package has been delivered, please check with your neighbors, family members or mail department. Packages are occasionally left with neighbors, building managers, or are placed somewhere relatively safe such as your porch, driveway, garage, or even behind bushes, as determined by the carrier.

If the tracking information indicates that the package is being returned to us, or if the address is outdated or incorrect, it may have been undeliverable. Please contact us with questions if you are unable to locate your package(s).

Shipping Restrictions

Geographical Shipping Restrictions

Warranty issues, manufacturer restrictions and product nature prevent us from shipping certain products to some geographical locations.

Item specific shipping restrictions should be noted on the product detail page.

Undeliverable Packages

Occasionally packages are returned to us as undeliverable. If you suspect your order cannot be delivered as addressed and you have not received confirmation of its return after four weeks from an estimated delivery date, please Contact Us.

Our carriers may deem a package undeliverable for one of the following reasons:

Incorrect Address

If the address is incorrect or outdated, the package is typically returned to us by the carrier or the unintended recipient. Please double-check your address carefully when placing a new order.

To change an outdated or incorrect address from your account, click "Edit" under Account Information in Your Account and change the address that is outdated or incorrect to an updated or correct address. If you have an open order with an incorrect ship to address please contact Customer Service, updating your account does not automatically update an open order. Orders not yet shipped will be updated. Orders in route may be redirected per your request; charges will be the responsibility of the customer. After your order is returned, it will be processed as a Don’t Want and a subsequent order would have to be placed.

Address Format

If a post office box address was entered in a format our system does not recognize, the order would be cancelled and/or package would be returned to us. After your order is returned, it will be processed as a Don’t Want and a subsequent order would have to be placed.

Failed Delivery Attempts

Most of our carriers will make three attempts to deliver a package. Packages that contain a certain dollar amount of merchandise may require a signature. Otherwise, it is generally up to the driver's discretion to determine whether a signature is required. If the driver feels it is best to obtain a signature and no one is present to accept the delivery after three attempts, the package will be returned to us. After your order is returned, it will be processed as a Don’t Want and a subsequent order would have to be placed.

Freight Scheduling

Carriers may contact you directly to schedule delivery; deliveries must be scheduled within 14 days of contact. After three contact attempts, the package will be returned to us. After your order is returned, it will be processed as a Don’t Want and a subsequent order would have to be placed.

Delivery Refused

Your package may have been delivery refused by a member of your household not expecting a package. After your order is returned, it will be processed as a Don’t Want and a subsequent order would have to be placed.

Freight Items and Those Requiring Special Handling

Special Surcharge

Oversized and extremely heavy products may be noted on their product detail pages and require a special surcharge. The surcharge varies depending on the size and weight of the product.

Some products may incur an additional charge, per item, due to the unique nature of the product, or additional packaging being required.

Special Surcharges will be included in the Shipping and Handling subtotal of your order.

Freight Items

Products that are not shipped via UPS and FedEx or weigh over 150 pounds may be marked on their product detail pages and require special handling, meaning that they usually will ship via Freight or LTL (Less then Truckload). Please note: All freight items are curb side delivery ONLY. The shipping charges for these items may be indicated on their product detail pages and will be calculated for you at the shopping cart or the last step of the checkout process before you send us your order. Please note that each shipment of these items may require an adult signature upon delivery and the shipping company may contact you to set up a specific delivery time.

Remember, before taking delivery of your freight / LTL shipment, you must carefully inspect your product before signing for or accepting delivery. If you discover damage do not sign for the product and refuse delivery. Freight shipped and oversized products, if signed for or accepted for delivery, may not be returned. Notes left for carriers instructing them to deliver in your absence, are considered accepted for delivery, and may not be returned. By signing for or accepting delivery of an LTL or freight item, you acknowledge that the products are not damaged and you understand that you cannot return the products as damaged.

Your privacy is important to us, and we know that you care about how information about your order is used and shared. We would like our international customers to be aware that cross-border shipments are subject to opening and inspection by customs authorities. Also, we, or our partner International Checkout, may provide certain order, shipment, and product information, such as titles to international carriers; such information may be communicated by the carriers to customs authorities in order to facilitate customs clearance and comply with local laws.
