Truck freight shipping applies to items that are too big and/or heavy for the parcel carriers (i.e. UPS, FedEx). It is also sometimes called "LTL" or "Less than Truckload" freight.
Truck freight shipments can be picked up at a freight terminal or delivered to your address. Additional fees may be charged by the freight company if you have limited access or need inside delivery.
Any item that requires truck freight shipping will be noted online and in our catalogs.

Why is it so expensive?
Truck freight shipping is complicated. It requires dozens of shipments to be consolidated onto one truck. They come from different sources and are headed to different destinations. The shipments are often unloaded and reloaded several times at a shipping terminal. This means it usually takes longer and costs more than parcel shipping.
- Transit times vary for truck freight shipments due to dispatching and scheduling.
- You will receive tracking information via email once the order is shipped.
- The carrier will contact you to schedule a delivery time.
- If you have specific delivery needs, please let the carrier know.
- If your order contains more than one truck freight item, the items may be shipped from different sites, resulting in separate shipping charges.
