- Your credit card will not be charged until your order has been shipped and only for the items that are shipped. Should your order contain out of stock or special order items, you will be charged separately when those are shipped.
- Most orders received before 4:00 PM EST are shipped same day. Orders placed after 4:00 PM EST are normally shipped the next business day.
- Items listed as out of stock are either special order items or out of stock. Expected stock status or lead time is listed but not guaranteed.
- Unlike many products sold on the web, (books, CD"s, clothes, computer parts, etc.), auto body parts rarely fit into small boxes. Carriers charge a dimensional weight based on the size of a box. In many cases a RH & LH panel or two seats can be shipped for the same price as one. In an estimate, we have to guess at some of the combinations so the actual shipping could be more or less.
- If the shipping is not marked as an estimate and if costs much more to ship we may contact you with a new rate.To learn more click here.
- There is a crating charge for hoods ($30.00) and some fenders and doors ($20.00) that are shipped via freight. This is for extra packaging to prevent damage in transit.
Shipping Estimates and Air Shipments
- Shipping costs are extremely sensitive to size, weight, and shipping method which means that we must try our best to estimate shipping costs for each order.
- AIR SHIPMENTS are even more sensitive to the dimensional weight and can cause huge fluctuations in shipping costs.
- UPS and FEDEX have additional charges for oversized items (60" long or second side over 30") or over 70#. We do our best to figure this into our estimates, however, combining parts into one package may result in oversized or overweight boxes.
- There are also parts we do not have size or weight information; these weights and sizes are estimated. Over 90% of the non-air packages of which we know the weights will go out within a dollar of the estimate.
- USPS does not provide detailed tracking information and is very expensive to insure. They also take 3-6 months to process a claim and we rarely receive payment.
- If you choose USPS and the package does not arrive or is damaged in transit, USPS will not reimburse us. That means that we cannot cover your loss.
- We will be responsible for a loss if our staff chooses to ship via USPS.
- We will provide a tracking number and the date the order was shipped.
- If the risk of loss is not acceptable, please choose another carrier.
When receiving items shipped via freight, please thoroughly inspect for damages before signing the bill of lading. Open and inspect the shipment, reporting any damages to the carrier immediately and Mill Supply within 3 days. Retain EVERYTHING until the issue has been resolved. Signing a bill of lading without an indication of damage eliminates the possibility of reimbursement.
Here is a to-do list when receiving your freight shipment:
- Inspect container for damages. Note any damages on the bill of lading.
- Open container and inspect contents for damages. Should there be damaged items, report to the carrier immediately.
- Note all information regarding damages on the bill of lading.
- Should there be damaged items, report the damages to Mill Supply within 3 days.
