How will my order be shipped and what are your shipping/processing rates?
We try our best to compete on shipping levels while choosing the best carrier for a particular item. For in stock items, once you have placed your order through our website, your package(s) will be shipped via Standard Ground Delivery, to arrive within seven business days after the date of order processing confirmation. Should there be a delay in processing or shipping of your order, you will be contacted via telephone or through email. When ordering multiple items, some pieces may arrive in separate shipments. You may also choose Expedited Delivery within the 48 Contiguous States at a premium level, to arrive within four business days after the date of order processing confirmation.
Some items may arrive directly from the manufacturer, and will ship standard ground delivery. Those items and their time frames are spelled out in the description section of that particular product. Expedited shipping is not available for oversized items or items shipped directly from a manufacturer. In the event an item is not eligible for Standard Ground Delivery, due to size or weight, a special delivery charge will be listed alongside the item's price. This type of special delivery charge will be in lieu of the regular standard shipping/processing rates. We are able to offer a white glove delivery service on some items, in some areas. Please call our business line, 813.839.4544 to obtain special shipping information.
Shipments to Alaska, Hawaii and the U.S. Territories may be sent via parcel post. Shipping to any U.S. Territory will need to be verified prior to order finalization and credit card processing. Some oversized items may not be eligible to be shipped outside of the 48 contiguous states.
All orders placed today are processed the next business day, regardless of Standard shipping or Expedited shipping. Orders placed on Saturday or Sunday will be processed on the following Monday, excluding national Holidays. Overnight shipping is not available for any product.

Is your online site secure when submitting my credit card information?
Transacting business over the internet can be a scary situation and we understand the concern with giving out your credit card information. While no company can guarantee the transmittal of information over the internet as completely secure, in order to protect your personal information, specifically your credit card information submitted online, we have employed the use of advanced encryption and authentication devices, through our well known service providers. Not only do we subscribe to the use of industry standard tools such as Address Verification Service and Card Code Verification programs through our gateway service provider, we also utilize Authorize.net's Fraud Detection Suite tools to help identify, manage and prevent fraudulent transactions. We constantly monitor our operations as a first step in detecting suspicious activity. As an additional measure of visible comfort, you will also see our SSL encryption logo when you are requested to provide your credit card information, which is one of the steps we take in making sure our online system is as secure as possible. This certificate, a Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) Certificate, enables encryption of your online transactions, providing a protective barrier around your credit card information. During this portion of the transaction, you will also see a "padock" in your browser's status bar, which indicates you are using a secure page with which to provide your personal information. We take security very seriously, however, in the event you are not comfortable with transacting business online, you are welcome to call us, during regular business hours, to facilitate your purchase over the telephone. We are happy to help in getting your packages on their way to you in a comfortable manner for you.
