How We Calculate Shipping Costs

As a 501(c)3 non-profit, our shipping and processing charges are designed to help offset costs for receiving and processing orders, maintaining inventory and related warehousing costs. We try to be as fair as possible in calculating these costs to deliver your items.

Periodically we offer free shipping and other sale and discount offers. Be sure to sign up for our newsletter and check our website frequently to be the first to know.

Delivery and Rates   

Most in-stock items will be shipped within 1-2 business days of receipt of your order. Sometimes items ship separately, but you will not be charged for multiple shipments. If you used a credit card and our item is on backorder, your card will not be charged until the item is shipped.

Shipping and processing is FOB shipping point (buyer assumes responsibility for loss or damage the moment the goods get to the shipper) and invoiced according to UPS Ground or Express shipping rates.

Shipping is not available to P.O. boxes.

UPS Ground Rates

Available to the contiguous U.S. states. Excluding Alaska or Hawaii. If you’d like to ship to Alaska or Hawaii, please select ‘express shipping AK & HI’ at the checkout.
