Home- Shipping and Delivery

Orders placed by 4:00 pm EST and 4:00 pm PST Monday-Friday(our shipping dept. is closed on Sat and Sun) for “off-the-shelf“, in-stock items are normally shipped same day from the respective location (Peachtree City, GA or Corona, CA).

**Cutoff time above is for UPS Ground only. See below for Carrier specific cutoff times.**

Although we stock the vast majority of the items in our catalog, we cannot assure that they will all be on hand at all times. We ship every order as quickly as possible, and in the event of a delay, be assured that we are working hard to get your order shipped promptly. Due to order volume during holidays, we cannot guarantee that all orders placed can ship on the day after the holiday closure.

Orders for spruce, plywood, metal, tubing and other special cut products may take a few days to ship depending on order volume. Special order products ship based on the lead times of each manufacturer.

Important Notes:

1. Same day shipping policy may not apply to items marked:

"In Stock (Dropship Item)"

We will do all we can to get the order out the same day, but due to the varying locations of the vendor with stock, we cannot guarantee same day shipping.

2. Special Instructions may delay shipment of your order.

Shipping Charges are automatically calculated by the web site at the cart screen on most items. Shipping charges on some special cut materials, hazardous items, and oversize items are unable to quote accurately online by our system. In these cases, the website will show the charges as TBD which means "To Be Determined". Once the size and weight of your order after packing are determined, the system will bill the exact freight charge of the chosen carrier. Shipping charges include insurance unless specified otherwise.

Please be assured that Aircraft Spruce charges only actual shipping charges and all shipping charges will be listed on your itemized invoice. Please note that you may incur additional handling charges based on the products you ordered or the method of shipping.

Most orders over $500.00, shipping within the 48 contiguous United States, will be shipped prepaid, with Aircraft Spruce paying the shipping costs! This only applies to orders shipped UPS ground and which are more economical shipping by UPS than by motor freight. Aircraft Spruce pays the freight, but any additional fees assessed by UPS (such as COD fees, hazardous materials, additional handling, etc) will be billed at time of shipment. Please refer to the UPS Service Guide for further details of additional charges that may apply. Orders that contain 5 gallon containers, oversized items, specially cut materials (ie wood, metal, foam, rolled fabric, etc), packages measuring more than 84 inches length and girth or 60 inches long or exceed 100 pounds total weight are excluded. Special Order items are also excluded from the Free Shipping promotion. Core charges, hazardous materials fees, box charges, and insurance are not considered part of the $500.00 value of an order. Our Free shipping offer does apply to orders for tires and batteries!*

Note: If the order qualifies for free shipping within the above guidelines, the system will offer "Free Ground Shipping" as a Shipping Method in the cart portion of the checkout process. If there is no "Free Shipping" option listed, the order does not qualify and freight quoted online will be billed.
