Common Carrier & Freight Shipping Information
Items that are too large to ship by standard ground carrier such as UPS or FedEx are required to ship freight. Orders and items that are shipped by freight are delivered on a large truck, such as a 26 ft. box truck or a tractor-trailer.
- Once your order ships, you will receive a tracking number that has an estimated delivery date to your local freight terminal.
- The carrier will call you at your provided phone number to schedule a delivery appointment within the next 1-2 business days. Only weekday appointments are available. If you are unable to receive the shipment within 1-2 business days of its arrival at the freight terminal, contact us at 877-734-2458
- All standard freight shipments are delivered curbside. The driver will bring the item to the curb and is not authorized to move it further. Anything past curbside delivery must be arranged before placing the order.
- Most freight orders are delivered on a pallet. If you do not have a dock height delivery door, you most likely will require a truck with a lift gate. This is an additional charge and can be added to your order at the time it is placed. Please call 877-734-2458 for additional information.
- Upon delivery, you will need to inspect and sign for the shipment. Prior to signing, any visible damage to the shipment and products, along with any missing items, must be noted on the delivery receipt. We need to be notified of product damage and missing parts within one business day of receiving your shipment.
Interruption of Service: Online Stores, USPS and UPS shall not be liable for any interruption of service due to causes beyond its control, including, but not limited to, the following: the unavailability or refusal of a person to accept delivery of the shipment; acts of God; acts of public authorities acting with actual or apparent authority; acts or omissions of customs or similar authorities; insufficient information provided by a customer; the application of security regulations imposed by the government, or otherwise applicable to the shipment; riots, strikes or other labor disputes; civil unrest; disruptions in air or ground transportation networks and natural disasters.
Most orders that ship ground usually ship within 1-2 business days if placed before 1:00PM EST and the items are in stock. Orders that ship economy will ship within 3-5 business days if placed before 1:00PM EST and the items are in stock. Expedited Shipping Information: Deadline for orders requiring Next Day, 2 Day, or 3 Day delivery is 1:00 PM EST (Eastern Standard Time) for items in stock.

Which Shipping Option is best?
We would like to remind our valued customers of the option of adding an Insulated Shipping Liner & Cold Gel Pack to your order for $5.00 and ship by NEXT DAY AIR to increase the likelihood that your items arrive to you in good condition. All of our clotted cream and candy ships from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Please keep in mind how the weather is in your region and your distance from us when when placing your order.UPS Ground - best if you are not in a rush and the shipment weighs more than 1 or 2 lbs. UPS has very good tracking. UPS ground reaches the entire continental US plus HI and AK. Do not use for APO or PO boxes.
Economy – This method offers the best value but it does not provide a guaranteed delivery date. Orders are generally processed for shipment within 2 business days and transit time is 3-10 business days. Economy shipping will work for USPS PO Boxes, APO and FPO addresses. This will include shipping methods of UPS & FedEx Ground & USPS.
3 Day - Takes 3 days for delivery and costs more than Economy. This option is good if you are on the west coast and need your order within 3 days. 3 Day shipping is available to US only and cannot be used for APO or FPO addresses.
2 Day - Takes 2 days for delivery and costs much more than Economy. Orders shipped via this method arrive by the end of the second business day after shipping. 2 Day shipping is available to US only and cannot be used for APO or FPO addresses.
Next Day – Next Day shipping offers guaranteed overnight delivery for day-definite shipments. Next Day shipping is available to US only and cannot be used for APO or FPO addresses.
Alaska, Hawaii and APO Addresses Shipments to Hawaii and Alaska can now be shipped by UPS Ground, FedEx Ground or US mail. UPS and FedEx ground services are normally cheaper unless the item is very light. For APO and FPO addresses please select the US Mail shipping option, as this is the only option available. In some cases our shipping calculator may underestimate the actual shipping costs if the package is oversized. In this case we will notify you of any additional charges before shipping. You may cancel your order at this point without penalty.
USPS and Oversized Packages Due to the new USPS rate changes, we reserve the right to ship any oversized package using UPS or FedEx to prevent additional shipping charges to our customers. Any package over one cubic foot (12x12x12 ft.) is considered oversized.
Freight Charges: Large One Piece Flagpoles - As these flagpoles ship by truck out of different locations based on availability, our calculator is not able to calculate the exact freight charges. Please call us for a firm freight quote. If you select this shipping option you will get a very approximate freight cost based on the value of the shipment. You may also place the order using any shipping method and we will contact you with the actual cost. You may cancel the order at that point without any penalty.
