Shipping and Delivery

Shipping & Delivery Information

Shipping Charges within the United States (including HI, AK & Puerto Rico

Shipping costs for orders placed on this site are based on the total weight of your order and the delivery location. Because the cost is based on the weight of the order and not the number of items purchased; orders with multiple items will normally be charged less shipping than if they were purchased individually. Shipping charges include carrier costs (including fuel surcharges), handling, and processing fees and are subject to change without notice.

 

Depending on the total weight, the value of your order, and delivery location, different shipping methods will be available. Prior to checkout, while viewing your cart you will be offered the opportunity to enter a destination zip code to determine available shipping methods and charges. During checkout, you will also be allowed to choose your desired shipping method. A small percentage of orders may have only one shipping method available. Orders over $100 dollars will be shipped with a signature required for delivery.
