We have created this information page to assist you in planing your holiday shopping.
Most of our items ship by LTL ( truck ) carriers. It is important to know that LTL is usually not as fast as the package services.LTL delivereies also require a delivery appointment.

For FedEx shipments we have included the zone map above to help in your planing but please note that this is only accurate for shipments from our warehouses in PA and Ct! If you are not sure where your selected item will ship from, please call us toll free at 1-877-358-5579 and we will be happy to advise you. Below are a few rules of thumb to be aware of as you plan. If you think there might not be enough time left for your holiday delivery, please also look at our gift box alternative at the bottom of the page.

1) Most of what we ship comes out of our own warehouse in Hamden Ct 06514, but we also ship from some manufacturers directly.
3) Transit times range from 1 to 6 business days, depending on the start point and your location. East coast is typically faster. West coast is typically longer unless we have your item in stock in our warehouse in Ca. Please call us to be sure that your desired product is available from your desired distribution location. In general, three to five business days will typically cover the country. Six business days would be quite unusual.
4) The day of the pick up is NOT counted as a shipping day! This is true for package and LTL shipments.
5) Arrival dates are not guaranteed unless we make special arrangements with the trucking company. There is a fee the carriers levy for a  "date definite arrival". Please call if you need a quote on this service.
6) While I see trucks rolling every weekend, somehow the truckers only count business days in their transit times. Please be careful to count BUSINESS days only!
7) Installation services can add a lot of time. Even if we can get it to the installer fast, they will still need to fit you into their schedule. This gets much more difficult during the holiday season. Please plan on an additional week or more for installation. if you are not sure, please call us and we will check installation availability in your area

With so many variables, please contact us for your specific item(s) and we can help you plan. This is particularly true for the large items that move by LTL and/or items requiring installation services.
