Shipping & Delivery Policies

All prices are F.O.B.Santee, CA and do not include shipping costs. The products may be picked up at the factory or shipping arrangements can be made. To keep costs low, we pass through actual shipping costs and fees from the carrier. Beware of "free shipping" or other gimmicks that usually have hidden fees built into a higher product cost.  Please note: The selection of a particular carrier does not guarantee that carrier will be used. We reserve the right to use an alternative carrier at the same or upgraded delivery speed at no additional cost.

Allow extra for packaging materials. If mailing your order, we will credit or refund any overpayment. Items marked "oversize" incur an additional handling charge by Fedex. Items marked "Motor Freight" must be shipped by motor freight only.

Fedex/UPS/USPS Ground RatesGround Dimensional Weight

Dimensional weight reflects package density, which is the amount of the space a package occupies in relation to its actual weight. To determine the dimensional weight, multiply the package length by the width by the height rounding each measurement to the nearest whole number. The result is the cubic size in inches. Fedex, for example divides this figure by 166 to determine the dimensional weight in pounds. Increase any fraction to the next whole pound. If the result is greater than the actual weight, then the dimensional weight applies. (L x W x H / 166)

Fedex/UPS/USPS Fees and Surcharges

The ground carriers have initiated a host of additional fees and surcharges during the past decade. These fees include Residential Surcharge, Extended Area Surcharge, Address Correction Fees and Fuel Surcharge among others. For more information, please go to

Some Products Must Ship by Motor Freight:

Please keep in mind trucking companies have a minimum charge based on approximately 200 lbs. Such that it is most efficient to order at least 200 lbs in merchandise.
