Items that are EXCLUDED from Standard FedEx Ground include (but may not be limited to) heavy or oversized items. This would include most furniture items.

Items that do not meet the "Free Ground Shipping" offer will be marked "ADDITIONAL SHIPPING CHARGES APPLY".

There is a $85.00 surcharge for residential delivery for all freight orders.

Order Processing, Shipping Method & Delivery Times

The shipping method and estimated delivery time are located on each product page. For FedEx items, standard delivery is just 1-3 business days. For freight items, delivery is 2-4 business days. Products may be delivered in separate shipments from multiple warehouses, which may affect delivery time. Estimated delivery times are considered standard delivery times and are not guaranteed.

Standard Items

Standard items are considered office supplies, business products or any item that is labeled with the standard shipping icon. These items ship FREE via FedEx Ground on orders $49 or more. We may substitute USPS, UPS or local courier for FedEx items at our discretion. Pulling from our warehouses across the country, we typically see delivery in just 1-3 business days. However, since we do try to ship your order as complete as possible, please expect the standard 3 to 10 business days for all shipments. If you need something sooner, please contact customer service prior to placing your order for an expedited quote.

Freight Items

Freight items are considered furniture, over-sized items (i.e. chair mats, dry erase boards & file cabinets), heavy weight items or any item that is labeled with the freight shipping icon.

Common carrier/freight delivery is considered "dock-to-dock." This does not include inside delivery or lift gate service. So if you do not have a loading dock and/or require inside delivery, additional charges will apply. Please contact us prior to placing your order so we can make arrangements if you are not able to help unload or need assistance bringing items into the threshold of your commercial building. To avoid any unexpected charges, please let us know if you need inside delivery or tailgate service before placing your order. If at the time of delivery you request inside delivery or use tailgate service that was not paid for on your order prior to shipment, we will charge your credit card for any additional charge from the freight carrier.

Per freight company policy, residential or limited access freight deliveries will have an additional charge set by the carrier. Freight companies consider the following as examples of residential or limited access:

- Private Residences

- Apartments

- Churches

- Schools

- Military Bases

- Other locations listed by the freight company

If you are ordering an item that ships to one of these locations, please contact customer service prior to placing your order so we can let you know of the additional charges before. If you place an order to a residential or limited access location without contacting us prior, we will reach out to you with that additional charge. In this case, your order may be delayed outside the estimated delivery date while we wait for your approval.

The additional charges for residential or limited access are:

Residential: $85
Limited Access: $85
Liftgate Service: $85
Inside Delivery: Please contact customer service for quote


These charges may be in addition to our standard shipping charge during checkout.

More Freight Delivery Details:

- Live tracking numbers are not available for freight deliveries. Sorry about that. No worries though, as mentioned above, you should see your order in just 2-4 business days.

- Freight deliveries cannot be scheduled or requested for specific times.

- Someone must be at the shipping location to sign for all freight deliveries. At the time of delivery, please check, double check and triple check for damage.

How To Inspect Your Order For Damage

Once your order has arrived, immediately inspect the package for potential damage that may have occurred during shipping. Carefully inspect the packaging and the contents of the package. It is normal for the box to show some wear; however, if additional damage occurred:

- Accept the package, but make a note of the damage on the shipping receipt, sign and date it. The delivery person should also sign the slip and leave a copy for your records. Contact Customer Service immediately at (844) 469-3375 during normal business hours. Please have your order number available when you call.

Service immediately at (844) 469-3375 during normal business hours. Please have your order number available when you call.

Missing, Lost or Stolen Deliveries

Deliveries from FedEx, USPS or UPS and local couriers may be signed for or left at/in a secure location at your shipping address. If the tracking is showing delivered but you haven't received it, before reaching out to us, please make sure you do the following:

If there is a delivery confirmation signature/name:

- Confirm delivery with the person who signed for it.

If there was a delivery confirmation location:

- Check, double check & triple check the area in which the delivery confirmation provides.
- Ask around other suites/departments/neighbors in case they received it or were holding it on your behalf.

If you have done all of those things and it is still within 36 hours of delivery contact us ASAP. We will file a claim on your behalf. The claim includes the shipping company tracing the package and reaching out to you. This process can take up to 10 business days. While the claim is in review, we are unable to send out replacement order or credit you back. Sorry about that. The moment it is closed, however, we will be able to send out another order or credit you back.

If you need the order ASAP, a new order would need to be placed.
