Ø  FedEx requires a signature for delivery. FedEx drivers will make up to three (3) delivery attempts before returning the goods to us. At the first attempt, a Delivery Notice will be left at the door which will have a release form on the back. Please read the terms and sign if you would like the package left at the door at the next attempt. Please note that by signing the release you are taking responsibility for the delivery and neither FedEx nor EDL will provide a replacement of the goods if they are stolen or damaged.


Ø  All shipments should be inspected upon receipt for damage and shortages. It is imperative any visible damage be documented clearly and reported immediately. In these instances, all shipping boxes/containers, and packaging material must be kept in order to initiate a claim.


Ø  EDL will ship to any location serviced by FedEx. Please contact us at [email protected] to receive a competitive quote for international addresses. Please note - shipping charges on our website are only an estimate and are subject to change at time of order processing. All freight charges are calculated using the dimensional or actual weight of the carton to be shipped, whichever is greater. EDL uses real time information provided by FedEx to get the best possible freight quote. The shipping weight used is the actual weight or the dimensional weight of the carton the item will be shipped in (whichever is greater). The dimensional weight must be used because a significant number of customers choose to ship via FedEx Next Day, Second Day or 3 Day select service. When using any of these expedited services, FedEx charges an amount based on the carton size not the actual weight. 



Ø  Orders are shipped Monday through Friday with the exception of the days on which the following holidays are observed: Memorial Day, Independence Day, Labor Day, Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year’s Day. 


Ø  All orders paid utilizing a credit card are shipped complete. If any item must be back ordered, the order will not ship until the back order is filled.
