Freight Policy

We have shipping points all over the United States and Canada!

Orders are shipped at the F.O.B. shipping point unless otherwise noted. We can send your product Pre-Paid and Add Freight Collect or use your Account Number. All orders are inspected prior to shipment. Therefore, checking items before accepting delivery is strongly suggested to protect your interests. 

Unlike U.P.S. charges, freight charges are extremely complicated as the freight rates are based upon the weight of the shipment, the density of the goods, ease of handling, damage rate versus cost of the goods, distance traveled, and the volume of freight handled between origin and destination for the Freight Company as well as services required at the origin and destination. In other words, there is no "one size fits all" for freight pricing. Custom Equipment Company provides freight and shipping estimates as a courtesy to our customers. These estimates are based on the information given to us at the time of the inquiry. They are subject to change due to fuel surcharges, accessory charges, address changes, redirected shipments, residential or commercial delivery addresses, or refused shipments. Custom Equipment Company does not assume liability for any difference in freight estimate versus actual billed freight charges.

All prices on the Custom Equipment website reflect Buyer's net cost in U.S. currency. The prices do not include freight, applicable federal, state, and local taxes, charges and duties, or special crating requirements for export shipment. Buyer shall pay all such costs, taxes, charges, and duties. Prices, colors, and specifications are subject to change without notice.
