Economy shipping

Economy shipping is our most affordable method for sending your order to you. Orders that ship Economy will arrive in three to eight business days, unless otherwise specified at checkout. Your order may arrive in separate packages if your order contains multiple items. If you choose Economy shipping, please provide an address that accepts both USPS and UPS deliveries.

Ground shipping

This optional upgrade will get your order to you via Ground in one to five business days. An additional $3.99 will be added to the shipping charges shown in the table at right, and your entire order will ship Ground. This option is not available for addresses outside the lower 48 states. A physical address is required.

Faster shipping (3-day, 2-Day and Standard Overnight)

Options for faster shipping can be selected during checkout. Orders must be placed by 2 p.m. EST on a week day in order to ship the same day, and fees are calculated based on the weight and size of the item(s) you're ordering. Delivery does not occur on weekends or holidays. A physical address is required. If you are especially concerned about delivery, please call us at 1-888-833-1412. Please note: Some items cannot be expedited. These exceptions are noted in the product descriptions online.

Items shipped directly from our suppliers

If your order includes an item that is shipped directly from one of our suppliers, that item will arrive separately from other items you have ordered. Faster shipping options are generally not available for these items, except as noted in the product descriptions.

Additional handling charges on large items

Some of our larger items carry an additional handling charge. These charges are noted in the product descriptions.


Shipping outside the lower 48 states

If your delivery address is outside the lower 48 states, it's best to order by phone so we can give you all of the available shipping options. In many cases, delivery takes two to four weeks. In addition, certain products have shipping restrictions, and cannot be delivered to specific states, as noted in the product descriptions.

Frequently Asked Questions

How are processing and delivery charges calculated?
Economy shipping charges are determined by the total dollar value of the items on your order, according to the chart above. Some oversize items such as furniture have additional handling charges, as noted in the product descriptions. Our Economy Ground charge is based on the dollar value of your order as shown above, with an additional $3.99 charge. Expedited shipping methods (3-Day, 2-Day and Standard Overnight) are based on the weight and size of the item(s) you have ordered.

Can I select faster shipping for part of my order and send the rest via economy shipping?
All items on an order have to be shipped by the same method. To select different shipping methods for your items, you will need to place a separate order for each method.
