Shipping Policy
Shipping in the USA: All shipments are F.O.B. Bound Brook, NJ 08805 for most items. Some bulk items will be drop shipped from the manufacturer, at our discretion. Unless instructed otherwise, we ship the most economical way. If requested, we can ship Collect or C.O.D. freight charges via UPS or FedEx Ground on your account. Packages under 150 lbs can ship UPS or FedEx. There are various modes of transport for UPS & FedEx. We can ship via any mode of UPS or FedEx in the domestic USA provided the package is not hazardous. Packages or pallets can ship virtually any trucking company that you specify or we can ship "bestway" and charge you accordingly.

If you would like us to ship to an alternate address, please contact your card issuer and request to add it as an alternate shipping address.  As per our sales policy, both billing and shipping addresses must be on record with your card issuer before we can process an order. This is our fraud prevention measure. The reason why we do this is because anyone that has your information (such as billing address and credit card no.) can have the parts ship to anywhere in the U.S. But only the cardholder can add an alternative address with the card issuer.   Once you have added the alternate shipping address, please give us a call or send us an email so we can verify with your card issuer.  If adding an alternate shipping address is inconvenient, we can always ship to your verified billing address (providing that it is not a P.O. Box, APO, or FPO addresses). After 3 days, your order will be canceled if we have not received any reply from you.  You are responsible for any and all additional fees charged by a shipping carrier, such as, but not limited to:  Delivery Area Surcharges, Extended Service Area Surcharges, Signature Surcharges, Hazardous Materials Surcharges, Residential Surcharges, Invalid Account Numbers, Unauthorized Use of an Account Number, Account Number Correction, Reroute Shipment Surcharges, Address Correction Surcharges, Unauthorized Charges, Delivery Appointment Surcharges, Liftgate Surcharges, White Glove Inside Delivery Surcharges, Weight Validation, Duties, Taxes, Customs, MFN, VAT, import/export fees, customs broker fees, EEI/AES Export fees.

Hazardous Products / Dangerous Goods - Shipping
A product is considered hazardous by its MSDS / SDS information and/or if regulated by the US Department of Transportation or by any other government regulatory agency. The regulations in the USA are set by the 49CFR (Title 49 of the Code of Federal Regulations) (see the e-CFR on For all international hazardous shipments and some domestic air hazardous shipments, the regulations are further regulated by ICAO / IATA (International Civil Aviation Organization / International Air Transportation Association) (,, and

All hazardous products incur an additional "per box" HAZMAT shipping charge on all prepaid shipments; as of January 1, 2016, ground shipping is $35.00 per box in addition to all handling, shipping, fuel surcharges, delivery area surcharges, and/or insurance fees for USA domestic bound packages. This fee is subject to change at any time by the carriers. Presently, we ship HAZMAT products via UPS Ground or FedEx Ground.

We can only ship Overnight HAZMAT products via FedEx Priority 1 at a prepaid HAZMAT fee of $90.00 per box for accessible dangerous goods USA domestic bound packages in addition to all other shipping fees and $110.00 per box International but can vary depending on the rates charged by FedEx. We will advise at the time of order shipment. This AIR HAZMAT fee can vary depending on FedEx. International AIR shipments require additional paperwork and clearance by the carrier and we presently only ship international AIR packages via FedEx. We strongly recommend “case quantities” to minimize additional charges. Presently, most 1 gallon containers ship four to a box for one HAZMAT fee. 5 gallon containers are individual. For larger quantities, palletized shipments are strongly recommended.

Of course we can ship collect on your UPS, FedEx, DHL, or LTL freight account and the carrier will bill you directly for any and all hazardous fees.
