Shipping will be “best method.” This usually will be FEDEX ground service in the continental US but may be the post office. A small handling charge is normally added to freight charges to help cover packaging. There is an additional handling fee for international shipments to cover additional paperwork and transport to the Post Office. Large items are normally shipped by truck. Note: Truck shipments are less expensive if addressed to a commercial address. International orders are always shipped via the U.S. Post Office if possible. No COD orders will be accepted. For international orders payment via wire transfer may be required. All prices are FOB our address.
We cannot guarantee orders will ship the same day, including expedited shipping. It would be preferable to place expedited orders over the phone to ensure delivery by the date needed. Handling time is usually 2-3 business days, but may be longer depending on complexity of the order or during busy seasons.
We cannot guarantee when packages will be delivered. This is the responsibility of the carrier (usually FEDEX). Customer assumes ownership of goods upon shipment. Shipping damage must be reported immediately. We will assist in resolving shipping claims, but cannot be responsible for lost or damaged goods. For us to be able to assist in shipping claims the original packaging MUST be retained. Ireland Engineering will not be responsible for any consequential costs or damages due to shipping delays or damaged/lost goods.
