We offer a low-flat shipping rate of $6 anywhere in the US and Puerto Rico.  Our preferred shipping method is USPS Priority Mail.  You will receive an email confirmation of your shipment with tracking details.  Orders over 70 pounds will be shipped in multiple packages.  If your order is shipped in multiple boxes, you will receive tracking details for each package.  Priority Mail delivery is typically expedited within one to three days after shipment, but is not a guaranteed time frame. Delivery of your shipment is based on business days and excludes weekends, holidays and severe weather occurrences.

If you need to have your shipping expedited, please contact us directly so we can accommodate your request. Additional shipping fees for this service will apply.
