Thousands of items ship free within the contiguous United States. We reserve the right to select the best method of shipment on all orders that qualify for Free Shipping. Free Shipping items are clearly marked on product pages, in your shopping cart and during checkout.
How do you calculate shipping costs?

Products Shipping via Freight Options:
Freight to a commercial address with loading dock: Commercial addresses are those defined by the corresponding carrier as commercial sites. Typically these addresses are zoned as commercial real estate. To qualify for this rate, the address must have tractor-trailer access with a loading dock suitable for unloading with a pallet jack or forklift. Businesses being operated from homes, apartments, or other dwellings where people live on the premises are not considered commercial addresses.
Freight to a commercial address with lift gate: Commercial addresses are those defined by the corresponding carrier as commercial sites. Typically these addresses are zoned as commercial real estate. Lift gate delivery is provided for those businesses not equipped with a loading dock. Businesses being operated from homes, apartments, or other dwellings where people live on the premises are not considered commercial addresses.
How long will it take for my order to arrive?
We drop ship almost everything directly from over 300 suppliers. On each product page, we provide an estimated "Usually Ships In" time. This is how long the product takes to ship from the supplier and can be anywhere from 1 to 14+ days, depending on if the item is in stock or a special order. We use UPS Ground for most items, which generally delivers parcels between 3 and 6 days. However, there are thousands of items that arrive only 1 or 2 days after your purchase.
How long will it take for Furniture items?
Furniture items usually have a longer lead-time before shipment. Depending on the type of furniture, your order may take up to six weeks to arrive. The shipping estimates for furniture are usually listed with each product; however in some cases, due to heavy or seasonal order volume, the listed "Usually Ships In" time may not be accurate. If the item is going to exceed the listed time, we will make every effort to let you know in advance.
