Sales/Shipping Policies

Sales/Shipping Policy

Prices Subject to Change

Due to the volatility of steel, oil, fuel and freight prices, on rare occasions our the pricing of large items may become out of date. In this situation, we will not charge your credit card or send your order without contacting you for confirmation, first.

Large/Heavy Orders

Shipping on large size or heavy weight orders will exceed the standard rates calculated online. These orders will be charged actual UPS rates, calculated at the time of shipping, which will be higher than the rate on your e-mail order confirmation. If you would like us to call and confirm before sending an order that exceeds this rate, please indicate in the Additional Information section of the order form.
