Parts Shipping

Fast Shipping is a goal


Most IN STOCK items ship by the next business day. 

 During the spring and summer many IN STOCK items sell out. We notify all buyers if an order cannot be fulfilled within 2-3 days of placing an order. Buyers always have the option to cancel an order prior to shipment.

ALL other items (those not identified as IN STOCK) ship from our manufacturers/suppliers to our facility

Please allow 3-14 business days for these orders to ship. Certain manufacturers experience delays due to back orders, increased volume and seasonal shipping delays. If a backorder is longer than 3-14 business days we notify you via email. You may cancel the pending order and refund payment at any time prior to shipment from our facility.

We email you with all information regarding backorders and other delays.

Orders received Friday, Saturday and Sunday will ship the following week. 


Shipping is restricted to contiguous 48 states.

Proposition 65 Restrictions restrict some orders from shipping to California (see details).

Please note: IF YOU HAVE QUESTIONS Please email or call us prior to placing an order.  

Shipping Options

We offer FREE shipping on all orders over $30. All orders under $30 ship for a flat rate. This is a recent change in policy to provide faster and more reliable shipping to our customers. We use shipping methods that include insurance against damage, loss and theft. 

Both FREE Economy Shipping and Flat Rate Standard Shipping default to the least expensive shipping method available including:

USPS First Class Mail, USPS Parcel Select, USPS Priority Mail and UPS SurePost. Our staff chooses the carrier based on lowest cost. 

Our fulfillment center is located in Indianapolis, Indiana transit times will vary based on your location.

Economy shipping does NOT have a guarantee delivery time. Buyers who need faster delivery may opt for premium shipping on IN STOCK items. 

Premium Shipping Options

We understand many customers need to expedite delivery

We offer Premium Shipping upgrades to either UPS SurePost, UPS Ground and UPS 2 Day Air

These options appear during checkout based on the weight and availability of the items in your cart. Non Stock Items are not eligible for Premium Shipping Options

UPS SurePost is a faster option. UPS handles transit from our facility to your zip code. Final delivery occurs to home via your local post office or a local UPS delivery.

UPS Ground typically arrives 1-2 days faster than SurePost. In many areas this service includes weekend delivery which may expedite delivery for orders placed later in the week

UPS 2-Day Air is the fastest shipping method we offer. See Express 2-Day Shipping for details. Please Note: UPS currently does not guarantee 2 day delivery on express packages.

We endeavor to ship Premium orders by the following business day. If items within your order are out of stock we will contact you via email to provide best options.

Only IN STOCK items will ship by the next business day. 

Paid Shipping is not an option on NON-Stock, Out of Stock and Back Order Items because the items must first ship from manufacturers to our facility

Express 2-Day Shipping

UPS 2-Day Air does NOT guarantees 1-Day or 2-Day Delivery on any Air Service but orders will arrive faster than Ground delivery.

We want all customers to feel comfortable and well cared for by our team

PLEASE NOTE our detailed shipping policy before upgrading to Express 2-Day Shipping:

Your order will ship by the next business day. If items within your order are out of stock we will contact you within 24 hours to provide a solution.
