Our Shipping Policy
Unless it is otherwise stated, most orders get shipped within a 24- to 48-hour period after your order has been confirmed. The shipping process varies based upon the size of your order and the location of delivery. Small- or medium-sized orders typically get delivered within 2 – 7 business days from the date of shipment.
Orders that include engines, transmissions or other large, oversized parts require special handling instructions and get shipped via freight truck. This shipping process can take anywhere from 2 – 9 business days. Any oversized item must be shipped to a commercial address.
Special order delivery times depend on the size, too. For example, small items tend to take between 3 and 9 business days while large items range from 4 to 12 business days.
Once you receive your order, it is important to inspect your package thoroughly for anything missing, damaged, or incorrect parts. Our warehouses are committed to undergoing every effort in order to prevent shipping damage. However, damages can happen due to reasons beyond our control like bad weather or unsafe handling during the transportation process. If the part is damaged, do not accept the package. Instead, have the shipper immediately return it to the sender. Contact us immediately in order to prevent being charged freight costs both ways. We are not responsible for missing, damaged, or incorrect parts after 30 business days, regardless of who is at fault. Additionally, we aren’t responsible for any lost or stolen packages and any claims must go through the shipping company.
Lost or Stolen Orders
We are not directly responsible for lost or stolen packages, but we will be happy to assist you in filing a claim with the shipping service. You must contact us immediately if the entire shipment was not received within two full business days. All requests must be made within twenty-one days from the date of shipment for any possibility of a claim.
