What is Brownells Flat Rate Shipping Program?
Brownells offers UPS or FedEx ground shipping for a flat rate of $15.95. The Flat Rate program applies to any US location reachable by ground (excluding Alaska). These rates do not apply to Hawaii, Alaska, Puerto Rico and the US Virgin Islands, where packages can only be shipped Parcel Post Air or UPS 2nd Day Air. Some products are restricted due to either heavy weight or hazardous materials.
Does the Flat Rate Plan apply to foreign orders?
No. Foreign orders, including Canadian orders, will be assessed actual shipping charges.
Does Brownells have a small package rate?
Yes we do. Orders weighing less than 3 lbs. can be shipped USPS Standard for just $7.95. If you have any questions concerning the size of the product you are interested in, please feel free to email our Customer Service Department.
Do I pay additional shipping for back orders?
Back orders are shipped pre-paid on all domestic orders if you have already paid for shipping on your original order. If the only item you ordered is on back order, shipping will be billed at the time the backorder is shipped. Items with fixed shipping rates will be charged at time of shipment.
Do all deliveries require an Acknowledgement of Delivery (AOD) charge?
No, only FFL items with serial numbers require an additional $7.00 fee for delivery confirmation.
I need to order an item that is listed as Hazardous. Are there special shipping restrictions and extra shipping charges?
Any item marked Hazardous material can only be shipped via UPS Ground or FedEx Ground to anywhere in the continental United States. All Hazardous materials will be shipped alone and will have an additional charge per order mandated by the shipper.
Certain items are heavy and must be shipped by Truck. Since truck charges vary from order to order, please contact us at 800-741-0015 to receive a shipping charge quote.
Will I pay the current Flat Rate Shipping on each box if my order is shipped in more than one box?
The Flat Rate shipping charge is applied per order, not per box, with the exception of hazardous materials or heavy items ordered on the same order. If this is the case, your order will be split and will be shipped as two separate orders.
