Items ordered are shipped within 48 hours of receipt of the order. Partial shipments may be made when complete orders cannot be shipped. If partial shipments are not acceptable, indication should be made at the time the order is placed.
Orders are shipped via best way unless otherwise specified. We routinely ship via FedEx® and UPS®. To avoid possible damage when shipments are made near a weekend or holiday, we ship frozen or cold packaged products on Monday, Tuesday, or Wednesday. We will not accept responsibility for shipments made contrary to our normal shipping schedule.
Special shipping requirements must be clearly indicated at the time an order is placed. Shipments are FOB origin, freight prepaid. Title to the items sold passes to the purchaser upon delivery of the items to the carrier.
Perishable Product Packaging
Perishable products will be packed as appropriate in insulated cartons for safe arrival. A packaging charge will be added as a separate item on our invoice when products require dry ice or cold packaging. We will not accept responsibility for shipments packaged contrary to our procedures at the customer's request.
