Shipping and Return Policies
Large orders, heavy and oversized items may require additional shipping charges. Alaska and Hawaii: add $5.00. Shipping charges are based on your total order amount. Typically, a higher order total equates to a heavier package. We understand there are exceptions. Our ultimate goal is to break even on our true shipping and packing costs; we do not intend to make a profit on shipping. We also want to find our customers the best shipping rates around including insurance if required, so an additional shipping cost may apply, but we will contact you about this.
We typically ship items within the contiguous US within one week of payment, or clearance of payment with checks. Please allow up to 20 business days for delivery of items.
The shipping prices indicated on the site include protective packaging, the cost of ground shipping , and handling costs for heavy or bulky items. These charges will be indicated when you place your order. Additional shipping charges may apply if your item is large or the value is over $100.00. We will contact you if this is the case.
Ground Shipping is currently the only method offered for online orders. If you would like to discuss expedited shipping or shipping with another carrier, please contact us to make special arrangements.
Estimated delivery charges are calculated assuming all items within the order will be shipped to one address using standard delivery charges.
We will gladly ship to multiple addresses. Because shipping to multiple addresses may affect the quoted shipping charge, we will contact you via email to confirm these charges.
Tax is not applicable to orders shipped out of the state of South Dakota. Shipping items in South Dakota will have tax added to the items and the shipping plus a city tax of 2%.
We will also ship to major international locations. All orders are billed in U.S. dollars but you must contact us for the rates and if shipping to your country of origin is possible.
