Shipping Policies & Rates
Online orders may be shipped to your home or to a Minnesota Equipment store for customer pick-up. Orders ship on normal business days, which are Monday through Friday, excluding government holidays. Weekend order shipment is not currently available. Orders requesting standard shipping methods will typically ship within 2 business days. Standard orders usually arrive to the “ship to” destination within 5-7 business days.
Actual shipping time for standard service is based on final destination. The Standard Shipping option includes the use of the UPS Basic or UPS Innovations shipping method. Standard Shipping of most packages whose total weight is equal to or less than 5 lbs. and less than 84 inches in length, width and height combined will be shipped via UPS Basic shipping method. Standard Shipping of most packages whose total weight is equal to or less than 1 lbs. and less than 84 inches in length, width and height combined will be shipped via UPS Innovations shipping method. With UPS Basic or Innovations standard shipping, your order is delivered by UPS to the closest United States Postal Service (USPS) Center of the ship to address and delivered to the final shipping address destination via the United States Postal Service (USPS). In cases where UPS Basic or Innovations is used to ship your order, the UPS tracking number will continue to provide tracking details from the United States Postal Service (USPS) Center drop-off location to the final “ship to” destination. UPS Basic or Innovations packages will be delivered to the door in most cases, but can also be delivered in a mailbox.
For our overnight delivery, your order must be completed before 1 p.m. EST, Monday through Friday, in order for it to ship the same day (subject to available inventory). Overnight service is not available for Ship-to-Store orders at this time. Items not allowed by law to be shipped by air freight will be converted to standard shipping for delivery.
Pickup at Store
The Pickup-at-Store delivery method ships orders to a Minnesota Equipment store chosen by the customer for pick-up at the store. Pickup-at-Store orders will typically ship within 2 business days and are usually available to pick up within 5 to7 days of the order confirmation. Orders not picked up or claimed within 45 days of the order date will be automatically returned. A credit for the order total will be issued to the credit card originally used to place the order, or a company issued check for gift card and Electronic Funds Transfer (EFT) orders will be given. Minnesota Equipment reserves the right to deduct a 10% restocking fee from the credit total. A government issued photo ID is required to pick up the order. The person picking up the order must match the name of the person designated to pick up the order when the order was placed.
Minnesota Equipment offers shipping to all United States addresses including Alaska and Hawaii. We do not currently ship orders outside the United States. We do not ship orders to APO/FPO addresses. Orders needing to be shipped to a P.O. Box Address must be less than 50 lbs in total weight and can be placed by calling one of our five stores. Minnesota Equipment does not offer gift packaging. Order information such as a billing or shipping address that is inaccurate or incomplete may result in delivery delays or cancellations. Products cannot be shipped to incomplete addresses. Minnesota Equipment is not liable for late or lost deliveries. Subject to our Return Policy, please contact the carrier to resolve any credit or adjustments related to delivery failures or delays. Except in cases where the return is the result of an order processing error or the item arrives damaged or defective, original shipping charges are non-refundable and return shipping fees are the responsibility of the customer. Please report items that are damaged or missing within 10 days of delivery.
Shipping and Processing Fees
Shipping and processing fees are intended to compensate Minnesota Equipment for processing your order, handling and packaging the products you purchased, delivering them to you and covering our related overhead. Fees are based on the total dollar amount for non-power and power equipment items weighing less than 100 lbs. or the one-way distance to deliver product(s) weighing more than 100 lbs. up to 50 miles of the store closest to the shipping address. Some products sold on minnesotaequipment.com may have weight or dimensional restrictions which are considered “oversized” by our order delivery carriers. Special handling may be required to assure the product is delivered to you safely. An oversized fee may be applied to such products and passed along to the purchaser of these specific products. The amount of the fee will vary by product. In the event of a “FREE Shipping” promotion, the oversize fee is excluded from the promotion and will be charged as specified. Minnesota Equipment reserves the right to ship orders or products in an order via “over the road” common freight carrier when the combined weight or size exceeds that which can be shipped via UPS efficiently. In these cases, we will contact you via telephone to arrange for the delivery of your order. Freight carrier deliveries require a person to accept and sign for the delivery. Items delivered via common freight carrier will be delivered to the residence or business threshold only.
