Free Freight Over $48 Plus Same Day Shipping

We not only will ship your order received by 2:00 pm CST the same day, but we will ship it freight free if you order $48 of stock merchandise shipping to a single location within the 48 contiguous states. $8.00 shipping on orders of stock merchandise below $48. We will also ship your order from one location in as few boxes as possible. Orders shipping to a location outside the 48 contiguous states will be charged 20% of the order total ($15 minimum). We're sorry we cannot ship to Alaska, Hawaii, P.O. Boxes or A.P.O. addresses.

Truck shipments may take longer to ship. Please allow 2 - 6 weeks for delivery. Because these items are heavier the cost to ship them is higher. These items, signified with a , , or , are excluded from the free freight offer and are not includable in the order total to achieve free freight. However, for your convenience we have included the freight charge for the items next to the item price in the price box. This is the total freight charge and not in addition to the 15% freight rate. ICC ruling requires a contact name and telephone number should the transportation company need to contact someone about delivery to your location. Truck delivery is tailgate delivery only and inside delivery will require an additional charge.
