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.
