UPS charges an additional amount for delivery to rural areas and residential delivery, those charges will be added to your bill. Note: These shipping charges may not be sufficient for lightweight bulky merchandise or weights over 40 pounds which will be shipped in multiple packages. We reserve the right to bill you for additional shipping charges.
