Rigging Central Shipping Policy

Rigging Central Shipping Policy

Rigging Central ships items ordered from our online store in two ways:

  • United Parcel Service, UPS - all shipments under 150 lbs.
  • Motor Freight - all shipments over 150 lbs., motor freight carrier chosen by Rigging Central

For shipments that total 150 lbs. or less, customers may choose any of the standard UPS shipment methods at the time the order is placed. Most items are shipped from our location in Northwest AL, though a few items are shipped from Memphis, TN.

  • UPS ground transit times from NW Alabama or Memphis to most locations East of the Mississippi River are 1-3 days.
  • UPS ground transit time from NW Alabama or Memphis to most locations West of the Mississippi River are 3-7 days.

For shipments that total more than 150 lbs., Rigging Central ships motor freight and will choose the best carrier depending on the items ordered as well as the customer's location. Most LTL (less than truck load) motor freight shipments will be made via Estes Express or FedEx Freight. It is not possible to quote motor freight charges at time of order due to the complex structure of motor freight tarrifs. Please be assured that Rigging Central will select the best and most economical motor freight carrier for your shipment.

Note: We regret that Rigging Central cannot make motor freight shipments to residential addresses. Motor freight shipments can only be made to commercial addresses with a loading dock or other means of unloading--such as a forklift--from a tractor-trailer.
