Next Day Air and 2nd Day Air orders can be delivered on Saturday by special request, and will incur additional shipping charges. For delivery on Saturday, please contact us via phone or email. Orders shipped via US Postal Service are delivered Monday through Saturday.

Oversized and Heavy Items

Oversized and heavier items may be subject to additional shipping charges, and may not qualify for 2nd Day or Next Day service. Some oversize items, such as Furniture and Easels, due to size and weight limitations may not be able to ship via UPS. These items may have to be shipped via alternate methods, such as truck shipment. Truck shipments deliver to curbside or loading dock. Additional shipping charges may not appear during checkout. If your order requires any additional shipping or handling charges, you will be notified for approval before your order ships.

Flat Files

Flat Files, due to their size and weight, must be shipped via freight truck. Shipping times are longer for flat files. Additional shipping charges will apply. Freight truck shipments deliver to curbside only; lift gate or inside delivery will incur an extra charge. We will contact you with the additional shipping cost and any shipping options for your approval before your order is processed. SMI Birch and Oak Flat Files are custom made per order and ship directly from the manufacturer. Please allow 4-6 weeks for delivery.
