We ship via FedEx, UPS, USPS, and LTL carriers, and use the carrier offering the lowest price based on package size, weight, and final destination.
We strive to ship orders of stock items the same business day, when received by 4pm CST.
Orders placed after 4pm CST on Friday will ship on Monday. Orders placed after 4pm Central time cannot be guaranteed for next day delivery if placed online. If you require next day delivery, please call our customer service team to discuss delivery options.

Standard Ground Shipping
We ship Standard Ground Orders via FedEx or UPS, whichever offers you the best value, depending on the size and weight of your order. This does not include USPS shipping, therefore no PO Boxes are eligible for Free Shipping.
LTL shipments are included when shipping Business to Business with a dock or forklift. Additional options available, please call for pricing details.
All in-stock items are eligible for expedited shipping. Our Expedited shipping options include:

If you require one day delivery, please call us to place your order so we can verify your items are in stock. Our expedited shipping options are no longer a guaranteed service due to shipping carriers suspending this in 2020 because of the pandemic.

Please note, if delays occur with carriers due to inclement weather, we cannot guarantee your order will arrive by the quoted delivery time and will not refund any shipping charges.
