Shipping & Returns


Free ground shipping on orders over $99 that ship within the contiguous United States. Free shipping applies to most small and medium sized items. Free shipping is non-applicable on discounted products or final sale items. Free shipping does not apply to larger or heavy items that may require a freight carrier. Items shipped freight carrier are delivered to curbside or driveway only and may incur an over-sized item surcharge. We will notify you by email of any additional cost before your order is processed and a product is shipped via freight. 

Orders under $99 will be charged a $20.00 flat rate.

Most of the products available on our website have the factory’s current stock availability listed which can help you determine any potential delivery delays. Please note that all shipping times quoted are estimates only and delivery times may exceed the times listed. In most cases in-stock products ship out within 3-5 business days but can take longer for final delivery. Orders typically take 1 to 3 weeks for delivery. We will make every attempt to use the quickest shipping method available but we cannot guarantee when an order will arrive.

Items ordered together are not necessarily shipped simultaneously. If an item is back-ordered, we will notify you by telephone or e-mail with an estimated delivery date.


If you wish to cancel an order for merchandise that hasn’t yet shipped from the manufacturer or our warehouse please contact us at or (515) 276-5088. Products that have already shipped from the manufacturer or our warehouse may not be cancelled.

If your order was successfully cancelled we will notify you via email of your accepted cancellation request.

Please note that any refusal of an order delivery may result in a restocking fee up to 30% plus all applicable shipping charges.

Shipping Returns

Follow the simple directions below to make your return by mail:

Contact our returns department by telephone to process your return and receive an RGA (return goods authorization) number. Once you have set up your return by phone you will be e-mailed an RGA number within 5 business days. Along with this return number, you will receive a ship-to address where you must send your merchandise. Be sure to include your RGA number with your merchandise on the shipping label. This number will be used to guarantee you receive your credit. 

If you return a product to us without an RGA number, your return could be subject to additional restocking fees or your refund refused. Include all original packing materials, manuals, and accessories with the product to avoid additional fees. It is recommended to return products in an outer protective box to ensure the protection of original packaging materials.

We recommend items be returned via UPS, FedEx or insured parcel post for proof of delivery and tracking. Please be certain that items are secure in their packaging so damage does not occur while they are in transit back.

You are responsible for all freight charges. You will be credited reasonable and customary freight charges relevant to that item if the product is defective or the wrong item was shipped. Items received past the return period plus reasonable shipping time will not be processed. Notification will be sent to the e-mail and/or billing address provided should your return not be accepted. Items will be returned to you upon receipt of your payment of freight charges. Items will be deemed abandoned if we are not contacted within 30 days.
