Shipping Times

Shipping times vary and we are not responsible for shipping times. Usually, UPS & USPS takes 1-7 days to deliver packages. We make every effort to get your packages shipped as soon as possible. Even though USPS claims to delivery all packages within 3-5 business days, their proven track record with our company is that it can take anywhere from 3-14 days. We recommend choosing UPS shipping during checkout because they are more reliable and their shipping times have a higher percentage rate of being delivered on time.

Shipping Info

Every attempt will be made to ship your order within 24 hours of when it is a received. We ship UPS and USPS, it is your choice during the checkout to choose. As the shipper, it is at our discretion to which is the best choice for shipping. For instance, if you choose to ship an icemaker USPS and we feel it is a better choice to ship via UPS, we have the right to do so, as UPS has insurance to protect you in case your item is damaged.

All shipments are FOB our warehouse. Shipping is charged on all orders and back orders. Our responsibility for shipments reaching their destination in a satisfactory condition ends with the delivery (in good condition) by us to the transportation carrier. If you shipment is lost or damaged en route, you must file a claim with the transportation company. You are obliged to pay all transportation costs involved in a warranty transaction (or for any other parts returned to us for credit) unless we are in error.
