We use a variety of trucking companies to ship our fireworks to customers.
Trucking companies charge a minimum of $120.00 to ship fireworks, even if

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.

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.

It usually takes 3 to 14 days to deliver fireworks by truck. Once we hand the package off to the shipper, the order is out of our
hands and it becomes the responsibility of the shipper. The shipper can

the order from us. If your package does not arrive within a reasonable
amount of time, please send email to firstname.lastname@example.org and
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 email us. We are
always ready to help you.
