CONTINENTAL USA + EASTERN CANADA

Free shipping covers most of North America. Kits delivered outside of our in-house delivery zone will be shipped via third party freight. Free shipping applies to kits delivered to a business address that has space for a full-sized tractor trailer and the appropriate equipment for unloading. Off-loading equipment includes forklifts that can safely maneuver a minimum of 5,000 lbs.

Kits that weigh less than 3,000 lbs can be shipped to a residence. A $350 residential delivery charge applies. The kit will require hand off loading from the trailer. A full-size truck and trailer must be able to park off the public traveled right of way. It is recommended that several able-bodied people be there at the time of delivery to help unload the kit. Each helper should be equipped with a pair of gloves and a cutting tool to cut bands and plastic wrapping. The driver of the truck is not required to assist with unloading. JCS allows a 2-hour limit for delivery. Additional shipping fees may apply for extreme urban or rural areas and for deliveries that take more than 2 hours.

Upon delivery, we recommend conducting a quick inspection of the kit before signing the freight bill to show you received the correct number of packages. You do not have to accept delivery of any damaged merchandise and you may refuse the shipment. If you are considering refusing, please try to contact our Client Care Office while the driver is still there.
