Shipping Policy & Free Shipping

Orders over $2500.00 in the continental US will qualify for free UPS ground freight. Some orders just wouldn't be economical if we offered free shipping so there are a few items that we cannot include in this deal. *Common items that do not get free shipping are fluorescent bulbs, large trays and media like rock or soil.

When placing an order under $2500, the system will calculate and display the UPS charge for delivery. Backorders do occasionally occur. Your order is charged in full at the time of receipt and then taken to the shipping department. Upon shipping, if an item on your order is on backorder, we will refund the cost of this item. On occasion, we do drop ship from manufacturers located throughout the US.

New Customers - Please be advised that all orders require a signature at delivery.

UPS and Ontrac are our primary shipping methods (alternatives available) and packages are shipped Monday thru Friday. Shipping and handling charges will not be included in determining merchandise subtotal. Items that are not eligible for Free Shipping are subject to shipping charges. Free Shipping offer valid for orders shipping within the 48 contiguous states and does not include 1-day or 2-day shipping and handling charges or previous orders. We only offer shipping to Hawaii and Alaska on a custom quote basis -- those and any other special shipping arrangements may be made by phone at 888-464-1849.

Delivery Failures

Failure to receive, miss the delivery of, or refusal to accept your shipment does not relieve you from the shipping/handling incurred by your order. This may also include the 20% restocking fee, unless the order is resent and successfully received.
