Domestic Shipping: The vast majority of our orders are shipped through the US Postal Service at cost plus a $2 packaging fee. When the order goes over 2 pounds or $200 in value we may charge you the actual cost of shipping.
- Please note that if the order gets over $200 or over 2 pounds we will prefer to ship by FedEx Ground. The postal system offers insurance but it only covers loss of the package, not damage. So for expensive orders it is far better to ship by FedEx Ground. See additional charges below.
- Additional charges:
- Orders including flex track will be charged actual shipping cost. Please note: if necessary, items will be shipped in separate boxes and actual shipping charges will be billed.
- Orders over 2 pounds or $200 in value may be charged actual shipping costs.
- Orders shipped in multiple boxes will be charged actual shipping costs.
- Our shipping and handling policy can be revised at any time.
International Shipping: International orders will be charged the actual US Postal Service Air Parcel charge plus a $3.00 handling/packing fee.
