Shipping Charges

Please refer to the weight and zone chart in the catalog to determine shipping charges. Due to frequent changes in cost & weight guidelines by UPS and other carriers, our charts are ESTIMATED shipping cost only. To use the charts first determine your shipping zone. You will then need to take your shipping zone and approximate weight of your order to establish your estimated shipping expense. Your actual shipping cost will be determined when your product is picked and packed in our shipping department.

You are responsible for all shipping charges unless otherwise stated or agreed upon. We also have “Next Day”, “2 Day” and “3 Day” shipping available at an additional cost.
