If requested, we provide real-time delivery quotes for worldwide orders via United Parcel Service (our default delivery service), Federal Express, United States Postal Service and Roadway Express (for truck delivery orders). We can also provide quotes to deliver small items internationally via Global Mail Express. To do so, please check "Other - have a sales rep contact me" when choosing your delivery method and ask for this service in the Order Notes, located below Payment Information, during checkout.
We aim to impress you with our fast and accurate service. If your Web, phone, fax or mail order is received by 4 p.m. C.T. and is in stock, we will make sure delivery starts that same day! And, if you request any type of express delivery service through UPS or FedEx, you receive same-day service, right up until 5:30 p.m. Same-day guarantee applies to UPS and FedEx deliveries only and does not include orders received during weekend or holiday hours.
Our default delivery service is UPS Surface, Chicago, Illinois. See the chart at right for approximate delivery times in the United States. Send an e-mail to our sales team if you have questions about delivery outside of the United States.
