Shipping Information

Shipping costs

Our shipping costs vary depending upon the weight of your order and the shipping destination. Most items are shipped from either Minnesota or Hawaii. A few items are drop-shipped from the manufacturers in various states.

We usually ship items within 1 to 3 business days. Please be aware that orders placed Friday through Sunday may not ship until Monday, Tuesday, or Wednesday.

Orders shipping to an address in Hawaii or Minnesota are subject to state GET or sales tax.

When ordering through our website, you will be given a choice of shipping methods with their costs before we ask for your payment information. At that time, you may either choose one of the shipping options and proceed through check-out, or change or cancel the order. Your card will not be charged until after you complete the entire check-out process.
