Shipping Policy

We do our best to ship most orders the same day as received if they are placed before 12:00 pm CST. Our hours of operation are Monday – Friday, 9:00 am – 5:00 pm unless otherwise stated. We do not ship on weekends. Located near Nashville, Tennessee shipping time will vary depending on the distance and shipping method selected. See charts below for estimated ground shipping times.

We are not responsible for incorrect address entries through our website. If an incorrect address is entered and the package does not arrive, shipping costs will not be refunded. Any additional shipping cost burden will be charged to the customer.

If an address is requested to be changed after shipment is en route, an additional address change fee of $15 may be incurred.

If a package is being shipped outside of the United States or territories of the United States, and USPS is the option that was chosen as a delivery method, please be aware that we cannot guarantee delivery and will not be held liable for lost packages.

We are no longer accepting shipments to P.O. boxes.

To contact your local Post Office (not the general 1-800 number) please use the USPS Post Office Locator. Your local Post Office has greater access than we to track your package, finding its whereabouts if it is delayed or other package-related issues.
