Shipping OptionsIn the Continental United States, American Surplus offers a variety of carrier options:
Less Than Truck Load (LTL): All LTL orders ship freight collect. Customers are welcome to schedule pickup with their own preferred carrier. In the event a customer does not have a carrier, ASI can provide a carrier offering an 80% discount (as long as your company does not have an account with our carrier). A check or credit card will be required to pay for the freight upon delivery.
Our LTL shipping hours are Monday through Thursday 7am to 4pm. We welcome all LTL freight carriers, but please note that Estes will only pick up standard (48" x 40") size pallets.
COD payments can be arranged with an LTL carrier. These carriers charge an extra fee (usually 6%) to pick up the check for American Surplus.
Truck Load (TL): ASI has a network of over 30 brokers to help get you the best possible freight rate. All truck load freight ships collect. Again, customers are welcome to book through their own carrier. Loading hours for truck load shipments are Monday through Thursday 7am to 3pm and Friday 7am to 10am.
Pre-Paid & Add Option: ASI will arrange freight to your door using our own discount plus an appropriate mark-up. Your cost will be shown on your sales order agreement.
