Order Cancellation

In order to provide the fastest service possible to our customers and provide same day shipping, orders get processed quickly. Once you submit your order on our website, in stock items on the order cannot be cancelled. All orders move swiftly into our fulfillment systems and we are unable to halt an order that is already being processed for shipment.

United States Shipments

All orders will be shipped via UPS Ground (unless otherwise noted... exceptions include Alaska, Hawaii, Puerto Rico, Virgin Islands, and US territories. See note below chart.) to all destinations in the United States only (Woodworker Express does NOT ship outside the United States.). Please note that UPS will not ship to a P.O. Box and all shipments are required to have an actual street address. Our shipping and handling rates cover the cost of shipping plus packaging materials and/or processing in a simple tiered rate policy.

Woodworker Express stocks most products for fast, same day shipping via UPS Ground.

image showing UPS Outbound Transit Days from Woodworker Express
* Note: This map is a general representation of transit times. Actual days may vary slightly from what is shown.

It should be noted that transit days are in "business days" and don't include weekend time.
For example, a product shipped on Friday with a 2-day Transit time will arrive on Tuesday.


Transit Days:
Transit days are a reflection of "business days" and do NOT include weekend time. For example, a product shipped on Friday with a 2-day Transit time will arrive on Tuesday. For quicker transit times, look to Expedited shipping options and/or Saturday delivery.

As our business also runs on "business days"... Monday through Friday, an order placed on a Saturday with Next Day Air selected as the shipping method will begin processing on Monday. Therefore, if product is in stock, the order will be picked and ship out on Monday and be delivered on Tuesday.

LTL Freight:

What does LTL mean?

Some items in an order may be classified as "long", "bulk", or "hazardous materials" and cannot be shipped via regular UPS. They will be coded LTL (Less Than Truckload (opens in new window)) in the product definition and you will see a note of "special shipping requirements" in the product description. If at least one item on an order is coded LTL, the entire order will qualify to ship via a LTL freight line and only one freight fee will apply. LTL shipments to commercial addresses are set to a $95 flat rate and all residential shipments will charge a fee of $125. We will also change the shipping method to LTL for all heavy shipments over 300 lb and the same commercial/residential rates will apply.

Additional Handling Fees:
Some products, due to the nature of the material being shipped, excessive weight, or size may incur additional handling and/or freight costs. Those products and the associated costs are noted in the description for the product under the heading Additional Handling Fees and are automatically added to the freight cost in the cart.

Expedited Shipping:
Merchandise needing to be shipped Next Day Air or Second Day Air may be labeled LTL or require additional freight charges. If that is the case with regards to an order you place, Customer Service will contact you with the additional charges before releasing your order for processing. Due to the hazardous nature of some of our products and/or large dimensions of boxes, we are not able to quote all Next Day Air / Second Day Air charges for your orders on the website.

All Next Day Air or Second Day Air orders should be placed before 3:00 p.m. CST to be delivered as requested. Unless Saturday delivery is specifically requested, Next Day Air and Second Day Air shipments fall under the rules of "Transit Days" which are business days and do not include weekend days.

For example, a Next Day Air shipment placed on a Friday will be delivered on the next "business day" which is Monday.

Ships Direct From The Manufacturer:
While we promise "Same Day Shipping" on most in-stock items we sell, when an item is specified as "Ships direct from the manufacturer", we do not currently have stock in our warehouse for that item and the shipment may take more time to process. Quantity on hand levels shown reflect manufacturer’s inventory and availability of the item for a faster turnaround.

In order to process an order shipping from the manufacturer, we place a "drop ship" order directly with the manufacturer on your behalf. The manufacturer then processes your order according to their processing schedule and ships it directly to you.

Once the manufacturer processes an order for direct shipment to you, the order cannot be canceled. Most manufacturers charge a restocking fee for returned orders. If an order is refused or returned by you for any reason other than damaged goods or a product mistake, you may incur manufacturer restocking charges which will be your responsibility to pay and will be deducted from any credit you receive back from us.

We cannot accept returns on special order items, items made-to-order, items with installation related damage, or items damaged during shipment back to us due to improper repacking. We cannot accept returns of items sold as "final sale" items.
