Types of Shipments
From the big to the small, we ship it all (mostly). Every shipment method we use is trackable and insured. Below is a list of our shipment methods and their shipping times. All shipment times are shown in business days, which is Monday through Friday (no weekends), excluding holidays. Shipment times are average and remote locations, shipments during the winter holiday season, and cases of extreme weather may exceed the mentioned shipment times.1
Standard Shipping - This means UPS, FedEx, USPS or some other common carrier that provides insurance and tracking. Shipments often need to be signed for, but shipments can be left at driver's discretion. Items shipped by this method have several "speeds":
- Super Saver Shipping
- This is our usual "Free Shipping" method. Shipments that are eligible for Free Shipping will have this option available. Shipment times are 7-10 business days.
- Standard Ground Shipping
- 5-7 Business Days. This is a slightly higher priority - these orders are processed before Super Saver shipments. Shipment time is 5-7 business days. On Faucet.com, all orders over $99 will be eligible for free Standard Ground Shipping; special rules apply in order to receive free freight shipping. All LTL/Freight Shipped orders over $1500 will be eligible for free LTL/Freight Shipping.
- Second Day Air
- The shipment time on this package is two business days - The day following the ship-day is the first day. Ex. Item ships on Friday (not counting Sat/Sun) and arrives on Tuesday. For Non-Contiguous States and Territories, use this method for shipping - the ship time for these locations is about 2-3 business days.
- Next Day Air
- The shipment time on this is one business day. An item will be delivered the following business day if the carrier receives that item in time for their daily cut-off (varies by carrier). **When choosing this method, please be aware of Expected Time To Ship of the products (warehouse turn-around).
Freight or "LTL" Shipping - This is reserved for large, heavy or oversized items such as large sinks, bathtubs, shower doors, etc. Items are palletized and loaded onto a large truck for shipment. Items are delivered by scheduled appointment by lift-gate for to-the-curb service. All items must be inspected for freight damage prior to the driver leaving. Shipment time is 7-10 business days. Remember, all LTL/Freight orders from Faucet.com over $1500 will be eligible for free shipping.
1 Shipment time is the expected time from when a package leaves the warehouse, enters the carrier's service to when it arrives at the customer's shipment address. Expected Time to Ship, which is the time from when an order is placed to when an item is given to the shipment carrier varies by product. Please read your product's details for further information.
