Shipping & Returns


Shipping time: Most in-stock items shipping UPS Ground are shipped within 2 business days from when the order is received.  LTL Freight shipments (long or heavy items) are typically shipped within 5-10 business days.

Delivery estimates: Shipping estimates are provided at checkout. Please note that shipping estimates do not guarantee a delivery date and that carriers may experience delays that are beyond our control.

Changes to shipping option: When we prepare your order for shipment, if the packaging of an order exceeds weight/length maximums allowed for ground shipment and that is your chosen delivery option, your item will be sent via freight at no additional cost to you.

Expedited shipping: If you require guaranteed delivery by a specific date/time, please call us at (786) 708-6662 prior to ordering to ensure that we can accommodate your request.

P.O. Boxes: Please be aware that we cannot ship to P.O. boxes.

Shipment tracking: You will receive shipment tracking information when your order has been prepared for shipment. Please note that shipment tracking numbers are created when the shipping label is created, but tracking isn't updated in the carrier system until the item is scanned in when it leaves the warehouse. There might be a delay between when you receive your tracking email and when the tracking is updated on the carrier's website due to this reason.
