Delivery Charges

Our delivery charges are based on the total weight of all products and delivery time required.

No-Risk, 30-Day Inspection

Not sure which brand or model you need? We'll deliver multiple products and you can return what you don't need, subject to certain conditions. Return the products you don’t want, freight prepaid, in original condition and product packaging within 30 days of receipt to receive account credit.

Confirmed Upfront Delivered Costs

You will receive confirmation for date of delivery and total delivered cost once your order is placed. If some products are on backorder and you select to receive the in-stock products first, you may pay an incremental cost for the delivery of the backordered products when released. You’ll be informed of the total delivery charge before completing your order. Your delivery of in-stock products will be reconfirmed by fax or email and can be tracked on When the backordered products are released, you will receive a similar notification and tracking information.

In addition to stocking more than 25,000 product offerings, we leverage an efficient supply chain network and have the capability to customize products to your exact specifications.
