Most products under 70 pounds will be shipped via UPS. Shipping companies only ship to valid street addresses. If all you have is a Post Office Box you will be accessed for any additional costs related to the post office. All items sent via the U.S. Postal Service will be sent "Insured" with "return receipt", subject to their restrictions. You will need to contact our office if you need shipment by post office.
Products may be shipped direct from the manufacturers nearest warehouse direct to you. We also "drop ship" products from our vendors direct to you to save shipping time.

Freight Damage: It is the customers responsibility to inspect all packages for damages prior to signing the shipping receipt. This is very important for trucking companies. Once you have signed the trucking companies bill of lading and the driver leaves and you discover hidden damage, it will then be your responsibility to file the damage claim with the freight company. Consolidated Parts, Inc. will not be responsible to file the claim for hidden damage. If you receive a damaged item you should refuse delivery. Remember that by signing the bill of lading you are certifying that all items are in good condition. We recommend that you thoroughly inspect the product for any hidden damage before the driver leaves.
