Shipping Policies

On most equipment, standard ground or LTL freight is free and shipped within the contiguous United States. Standard delivery times average between 2 to 10 working days.

Some manufacturers will allow for delivery for Canada, Alaska or Hawaii. For shipments outside the 48 contiguous U.S., you will need a freight quote for the additional fees. Please note that the quote from ShortOrder will not account for any extra fees required for export duties or taxes.

Standard delivery is tailgate delivery* only. With tailgate delivery, the freight carrier will bring freight to the back of the truck. Unloading from the truck to the parking lot is the responsibility of the purchaser. Please make sure you have the personnel to unload and deliver your purchase inside your facility. Standard delivery does not include inside placement, uncrating or installation. Liftgate deliveries** are available at an additional price. Liftgate delivery consists of the freight carrier lowering the freight to the ground via a lift system. (It is important to consider a liftgate delivery when heavy, bulky equipment is ordered. Also, it is import to consider a liftgate delivery in absence of a loading dock. Liftgate service is still a curb delivery service. Inside placement is still your responsibility. Inside placement is defined as unloading, uncrating and setting the freight in place inside your facility. This is not part of the standard delivery service.)
