Only you are responsible for your actions.

There are several ways to order fireworks from US Fireworks,
including ordering online from our website, telephone orders, and ordering
by FAX. While we can answer your questions over the phone, we prefer
not to take orders directly over the phone. By ordering online or ordering
by FAX, you save time (both yours and ours), and you reduce errors by
providing us with the documentation we need to fill your order as
accurately and as quickly as possible. If none of these options will
work for you, you can go ahead and place an online order
or FAX at 269-663-6103.
How To Order Online

simply click on the Category links in the left-hand margin of the page,

guide you during the checkout process.
Ordering By FAX
The simplest way to order via FAX is to print out our ordering form.

Once you complete your form, you may FAX it to us at 269-663-6103. If
you provided a valid email address on your order form, we will email
you to notify you when the order was processed and when it was received.
If you are missing information, we will need to contact you, so please
make sure your daytime and evening phone numbers are correct. Michigan residents must add 6% sales tax to all fireworks orders,
regardless of the amount of fireworks ordered.
We use a variety of trucking companies to ship our fireworks to customers.
Trucking companies charge a minimum of $120.00 to ship fireworks. We want to
help make it more affordable for you to buy fireworks, so we have decided to
pay for part or all of your shipping cost! The following list shows our shipping charges as of
Purchase $150.00 to $299.99
Purchase $300.00 and
Purchase $400.00 and $499.99
$500 and over
A residential delivery charge of $15
will be added to all orders. Contact us if you would like your shipment to
If you only want to order sparklers, smoke and
other novelty items, please contact by phone or e-mail before placing the
order as we will ship via US Post and the cost will be much lower. The is
no minimum order on these items.
Because the US Post Office, UPS, and Federal Express will not transport
consumer fireworks, we have to rely on trucking companies to deliver
fireworks for us. We use a variety of different companies -- Yellow Freight, Overnight Express, Roadway and others.
Your Ship To location must be able to accept freight shipments. We
strongly advise you to arrange for delivery to a work or business address.
This will reduce both the delivery time and shipping complications. All
shipments to residential addresses will be delivered to the closest trucking
terminal to that location.
After we receive your order, it generally takes us 24 to 48 hours to
process your order, pick your merchandise, pack it securely for shipment,
and notify the trucking company to deliver your shipment. If things get
really busy, it can take as long as 72 hours to get something shipped.
Plus, the trucking companies only pick up Monday through Friday.
If you are purchasing fireworks for the Fourth of July holiday, we
encourage you to order as early as possible, at least two-three weeks in advance.
It usually takes 3 to 14 days to deliver fireworks by truck. Most of
our fireworks are shipped from Michigan, so if you
are near Michigan, you may get your delivery sooner rather than later.
Once we hand the package off to the shipper, the order is out of our
hands and it becomes the responsibility of the shipper. If your package does not arrive within a reasonable
amount of time, please send email
we will help you track the shipment.
The trucking company will usually call you to arrange delivery of the
items. It is very important that you do not refuse delivery of your
order -- once it has been shipped, it is out of our hands and the
responsibility for the shipment falls between you and the trucking
company. ONCE YOUR FIREWORKS HAVE BEEN SHIPPED, THEY CAN NEVER BE
RETURNED. DO NOT ORDER FIREWORKS IF THERE IS ANY CHANCE YOU MAY NOT
WANT THEM WHEN THEY ARRIVE. ALL SALES ARE FINAL.
If you do instruct the shipper to return your shipment after it arrives,
you will be charged actual freight charges for both directions, plus a
15% restocking fee. In many cases, this can exceed the cost of the
original order due to the high cost of transporting HAZMAT goods.
If the shipment appears to be damaged upon receipt, please have the
delivery agent make a notation stating that fact. Any notification
delay may result in a loss to you. We cannot honor claims that a
carrier is responsible for. All claims for shortages and/or damages
must be made within ten (10) days of receipt of your merchandise. If
you have any questions related to shipping, please call us. We are
always ready to help you.
