Shipping Methods. Merchandise will be shipped using Ground Service where possible.

Any products that are shipped FREE GROUND and are later returned will have the original GROUND SHIPPING CHARGE reduced from the refund. 

We have the right at any time to contact a customer regarding additional shipping if we find our actual shipping charges are above the amount calculated at time of order processing.  Customers will have the option to cancel their order should this occur.


Alaska and Hawaii Shipments. We do ship to Alaska and Hawaii.  If you do make a purchase and the freight calculated is lower than the actual freight price, we will contact you with the actual freight price prior to processing your order to determine if you still want us to ship your order.  We add 10% to orders shipped to Alaska and Hawaii which will be listed as Sales Tax when you check out.  It is NOT SALES TAX, it is an additional processing fee.

International Shipments. Most products can be shipped to Canada.  It is best that you contact us to find out the exact freight price prior to placing your order.  If you do make a purchase without contacting us and the actual freight is higher than the calculated freight price, we will contact you with the actual freight price prior to processing your order to determine if you still want us to ship your order. International customers are responsible for all taxes and tariffs that accompany an international shipment.  We add a 5-10% handling fee (based on location) which is listed as Sales Tax but it is a fee to handle order processing for international orders. It is NOT SALES TAX, it is an additional processing fee.
