We work very hard to ensure that you get your order quickly by stocking the vast majority of the products we carry. With few exceptions, orders are shipped within 1 or 2 business days of being placed. If you're a U.S. resident, we usually ship your order using UPS Home Delivery, UPS Surepost or USPS Priority Mail. Delivery times will vary greatly depending upon where your order is destined, but our experience has shown that most orders are received between 2 and 8 business days after leaving our warehouse in Duluth, Georgia. Packages are delivered without the need for your signature unless specifically requested during order placement. We send an e-mail message when your order ships that gives you tracking information, an order summary, and the order number that you should reference in any correspondence.
You have the choice to receive your order via air delivery with UPS Standard Overnight (Next Day), 2-Day or expedited ground (guarantees no regular mail used and that the order will ship same day if before cut off times). If you'd like your order shipped today by any of these 3 methods, it must be placed by 2 pm Eastern Time (or 11 am for any products noted as Manufacturer Direct items) or it will be shipped the next business day. Air orders placed after 2 pm on Friday or orders placed on a Saturday, Sunday, or Holiday will be shipped the following business day. Delivery times for air shipments are guaranteed before 4:30 pm and may require your signature to be delivered. Also, keep in mind that air delivery times are measured in business days (not including holidays or weekends) so a 2-Day air order placed after 2 pm Eastern Time on a Thursday, it will be delivered on Monday by 4:30 pm. We do not currently offer expedited shipping with a Saturday delivery on the website. If you require a Saturday delivery, please call and order directly through our Customer Service Department. Saturday delivery is an option when shipping via Overnight/Next Day and involves an additional fee. We can be reached by calling 1.800.522.1448 but be sure to call before 2 pm Monday-Friday.
There are some states and territories that require air shipping. These include Puerto Rico, Hawaii, Alaska, U.S. Virgin Islands, Guam and other US Territories. Our website can handle your order, and in these instances we will ship via Priority Mail through the U.S. Postal Service. Additionally, orders being delivered to a U.S. Military Address will be shipped via Priority Mail. You may enter a Post Office Box as a delivery address even though you'll see a message in red stating otherwise. Finally, your shipping charges will be based upon the total weight of the order rather than the dollar amount.
A few of the products we sell are what we call "Special Order". If you see an item listed as such, it simply means the item will be shipped to you directly by the manufacturer rather than from our warehouse. This may increase the delivery time a bit for that item and it also means that we have no control over what delivery method the manufacturer chooses to use.
We have implemented a "Ship in Full" policy to help mitigate the ever increasing costs from shipping carriers. If an item is not in stock, which is rare, we will wait to ship your order for up to five (5) business days until that item becomes available. If the backordered item is still unavailable after 5 business days, all items in stock will be shipped and the backordered item will be sent when we receive it with no additional shipping charge.
The rates published below only apply to consumer orders being delivered to the lower 48 states and do not include the exceptions noted above. Shipping charges are based upon the dollar amount of the un-discounted subtotal. The addition of Georgia state tax (when applicable) or the removal of any order discounts will not affect this charge. Commercial orders (large orders for companies rather than individuals) are subject to actual shipping charges by weight and will be quoted by our Commercial Department upon request or order submission.
No Taxes! Only orders shipped to a Georgia address are subject to Georgia state tax!
