Shipping Policy



We try to ship every order received by 2:00 PM PST that same business day. Orders received after 2:00 PM PST may not be processed or shipped until the next business day. You will be notified if any item is unable to ship immediately.

IMPORTANT SHIPPING INFORMATION
If this is a TIME-SENSITIVE order, PLEASE CALL (209) 400-7200 during normal business hours. If your order was placed after NOON PST, it may not be shipped until the following business day.

Shipping Charges
Your shipping amount may appear to be very expensive. That is because our website only calculates the price of shipping via UPS. We have other methods of shipping if the item(s) you need are small and lightweight such as Priority Mail.

If you would like to know what your shipping charge will be prior to shipping and charging your credit card, just enter the words "CONFIRM SHIPPING" in the Comments box during checkout. We will get a shipping quote to you by phone or email. Your items will not be shipped until we have received a confirmation email or phone call from you.

Shipping to Alaska, Hawaii & U.S. Territories
When we receive your order, we will evaluate your shipping requirements and see if we can save you any money by using alternative shipping methods. If we can, we will use that method and you will see a reduced shipping charge on your invoice. You will never be charged more than what is estimated on our website without your prior approval.

Ground Shipping
Normally, we ship by UPS. We select the shipper based upon our experience and which will deliver soonest. Certain items have characteristics that ship better with one company over the other.

Truck Freight
If you have placed a large order or have ordered items that are too heavy or too large for ground shipping, transportation by truck is often the least expensive or the only way to transport your order. In these situations, your order will be boxed and palletized and then the trucking company is called to pick up your shipment. That pickup is usually the next business day after placing your order.
