Typical delivery would be 1-5 business days, dependent on your location.

Products that are oversized, such as longer baseboard heaters, will have an additional surcharge associated with them.  This is typically between $14.95 and $31.95, depending on size and weight.  Please see the individual product pages for specific details.  Regarding charges related to shipments to Alaska and Hawaii, please contact us for freight information.  Shipping charges to Canada are based on the weight of the items ordered and will be shipped via UPS Standard or the US Postal Service Priority Mail.  For shipping costs associated with large quantities or for shipments to countries not listed, please contact us.
