Shipping & Handling

We know that when you need flat ground stock, you need it yesterday. This is why we normally ship in-stock items ordered by 12pm CST Monday – Friday the same day you placed your order.

If you request expedited shipping, you will be charged extra for the shipping and handling cost. You will be informed of the amount via e-mail notification.

Sales Tax

One of the great advantages of ordering online is that if you’re in a state where we do not have a location, you do not have to pay sales tax on your purchase. However, state laws require companies to collect sales tax from residents when shipping merchandise to states where the company has established offices.

We will automatically compute and add sales tax to your order unless you indicate that you are tax exempt. If we do not have a copy of your tax exemption form or if you are a first time buyer at our site, you must fax us a copy of your sales tax exemption letter/form within 5 business days of your purchase to (630) 883-3140, (Attn: Please include a copy of your order invoice or your customer number.

If you are not tax exempt or do not send us proper documentation of your tax exempt status in a timely manner, we will place a charge on the order in the amount of the applicable sales tax.

Currently, sales taxes must be charged for non-exempt customers in the states of Alabama, California, Colorado, Connecticut, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Iowa, Louisiana, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Texas, and Washington. Note this is subject to change and the online order will reflect it if taxes are due based on the latest tax law changes.
