FAQ: Frequently Asked Questions

Shipping and Returns

How fast are orders processed?

Most orders process within 1-2 business days and ship via FedEx Ground, UPS or USPS. Please note that during peak season order processing times may take longer.


When will my order arrive?

Once processed, your order will be shipped via FedEx Ground or UPS and arrive within 10 days from your order date, often sooner! Once your order has shipped, you will receive an email for easy tracking of your shipment. Because some of our products are shipped direct to you from our vendors and manufacturers and there may be times when we are unaware of changes in product availability which may cause a delay in the shipping of our order. If this occurs, we will contact you ASAP with updated shipping information. Oversized products may require shipment via freight and take an additional 1-2 weeks for delivery.


How much do I pay for shipping?

We are proud to offer FREE SHIPPING on many of our products! Exceptions are made for oversized products which must be shipped via freight and small items which are priced too low to cover the cost of shipping.


Do you ship outside of the USA?

Currently, we only ship to the 48 contiguous United States.
