Residential Address Warning
FedEx does not require a delivery signature to residential addresses. There is an up-charge for
delivery to a residential address. We recommend making arrangements for delivery to a commercial
address when possible. Any questions? Call
When will my order ship?
We ship all orders via FedEx, and shipping time depends on the method you've selected and your location relative to our shipping points. In addition to FedEx Ground, we offer a variety of faster air options.
FedEx Ground Orders
If your order is placed by 2:00pm EST (Monday - Friday), your order will ship the same day for in-stock products. Some products may be shipped directly from the manufacturer. In these cases your order will ship within 48 hours. Most of our orders ship from our main Midwest warehouse in Pennsylvania, but some orders may ship from our distribution facilities around the USA, such as Minnesota, Oregon, California, Oklahoma, Atlanta, New York, Ohio, Kentucky, Wisconsin or Alabama.
FedEx Priority Overnight/ 2 Day / Express Saver Orders:
If your order is placed by 2:00pm EST (Monday - Friday), your order will ship the same day for in-stock products.
NOTE: For time sensitive orders please call us toll-free at
Most orders (over 95%) will ship complete the same day the order is placed provided we have it before 2PM EST. When we are out of stock on something we usually can drop ship that item which may increase the lead time by a couple days. If we anticipate a longer delay than a couple days we will contact you to see if an alternate item will work or if you will allow us more time to fulfill your order. We try our hardest to maintain our inventory of all things at all times but erratic or unexpected order flow or factory delays sometimes come into play. We promise to always do whatever we can to get your needs met in the time frame you require.
