Shipments & Delivery

  2. Most parts ship within 2 to 3 days after they are ordered as long as they are in stock. (See more)
  3. If not specified the parts will ship out by regular UPS Ground Service.

Shipping Rates

  1. UPS charges are at scale rate. 
  2. It is very difficult to estimate shipping rates ahead of time because the final package size and weight is unknown.

Special Note For Export Crates

  1. We have to add an extra fee when we crate with heat-treated ISPM lumber, which is required in for most countries. The fee will be based on our cost for each specific situation. It can cost from several hundred dollars up to $1000 or more. We try to use plastic skids and container shipping to avoid these charges.
