How much does shipping cost?
All shipping costs are calculated depending on the order weight, therefore we would need to know exactly what is being ordered prior to quoting a shipping cost. If your order is heavy and shipping LTL (by truck as opposed to Fedex), we are sometimes able to offer better shipping rates. Please contact one of our flexible ducting experts for an updated shipping quote.

What method do you use to ship your products?
We use a number of different shipping carriers to lessen the burden of shipping costs on our customers. The particular carrier will depend on the size and weight of the order. For most small packages, we typically use FedEx Ground. If express delivery is requested for an order, that shipment is sent using FedEx Air Services (one day, two day, or three day). Heavy (150+ lbs.) or oversized shipments are made via Dotline Transportation, Yellow Freight and Old Dominion nationwide. Oversized West Coast orders may be shipped using Best Overnite Freight. PLEASE NOTE: Next day or exact day deliveries are also available via the above freight carriers. All shipments are guaranteed for the full value of the product. Our staff will contact you with a freight quote.
