Frequently Asked Questions


What is a default shipping address?

You may have specified more than one shipping address in your account information. The default shipping address is the address to which your order will be shipped unless you select another shipping address for this order.


How much will my order cost to ship?

Shipping can be quoted by the following process: Add the items to your cart -> click on the mini-cart icon (top right of the page) -> click “view cart” -> scroll down and you will see the estimate shipping section - just enter your shipping zip code and click “estimate shipping”. Shipping cost is also quoted during the checkout process.  From time to time, the freight quote function on the website may incorrectly quote freight - in this case we may need to get back to customers and re-quote freight if the item cannot ship for the amount quoted. We will always communicate with the customer regarding any errors and will get authorization for any charges above and beyond already authorized.  Please contact us at or at 508-987-1667 for quotes on heavy shipments (may generate an error code for shipping total) as well as international shipments.  Please don’t hesitate to call or email if the price on the quotation does not look correct. Orders to rural areas, Hawaii, Alaska, and U.S. territories including but not limited to Puerto Rico, Guam, American Samoa, Northern Mariana Islands, may require additional shipping and handling not calculated by the web site. We reserve the right to modify a freight charge after the order is placed if the freight charged is incorrect or missing, however, we will always communicate this to the customer and get authorization for additional charges. We will not be held responsible for Fedex or UPS quote miscalculations.
