Here at Sturdy Built our Goal with Shipping is to get you your parts in the Time Frame to which you need them. We offer multiple Shipping transit Times depending upon your location. We use FedEx and USPS to ship your order depending on the weight of the items in your cart, and at checkout you will see which carrier will be delivering your order and an estimated delivery date of when you can expect the order to arrive. For example, if you have lighter items in your cart your method might say: "USPS First Class - (Delivery Monday, Jan 1)." Most of the items we sell will go with FedEx Ground by default, which is 1-7 business days depending on your proximity to our warehouse in Florida. We have FedEx Express options as well for customers who need their parts in a hurry!
From the Confirmation of the Order, we will get your Purchase delivered to your door based on the shipping method you select. We have a shipping cutoff of 1:00 pm EST, meaning any orders placed before 1:00pm EST typically ship that day. Any order placed after 1:00 pm EST (or on Sunday), would ship the following business day. The Estimated delivery that shows with your shipping method takes this cutoff time into account, so you may have a delivery estimate for Wednesday, Jan 1 at 12:00PM EST, but if you don't place your order until 2:00pm EST the delivery estimate would tell you Thursday Jan. 2. This estimate also takes FedEx and USPS Holidays into account, but it does not account for any weather delays or heavy traffic delays like around the holidays for example. While the estimate is almost always accurate it is still just an estimate and not a guarantee (except for express options - those are a money back guarantee from FedEx), so if you need the parts by a specific date please call us and we would be happy to help any way we are able.
Orders with a subtotal over $200 qualify for Free Economy Shipping, and will ship via the standard shipping options for your order and will arrive within the stated time frame. We do offer the ability to pay for standard shipping on orders over $200 and give top priority to shipping your order along with a more precise delivery estimate. Larger orders might require shipping in multiple packages or would be best delivered through a freight line on a pallet, so please let us know if you have a forklift or loading dock on-site and are able to receive a freight delivery.
We take great care in packaging every order to make sure that it arrives to you in perfect condition. If your order arrives and there is obvious damage to the package, please note it to the driver and in your signature line once you have signed for the package, if your package required a signature. Most of the time, deliveries from us do not require a signature. In either case, please call us immediately if any parts were damaged and send photos of the damages to our email address. This will allows us to rectify the situation as quickly as possible so that you have the parts you need.
If your order arrives and you feel that we have shipped the wrong items or if there are missing parts, please contact us within 5 days of receiving your order. We will ship the replacement items to you using the same shipping method that you used for your original order.
