We ship backordered items as soon as they are available. Your order may be split into multiple shipments, which will allow us to fill your order as quickly as possible.

Shipping Costs
Factory Express' online shopping cart was designed to provide you with accurate shipping costs at the time you place your order. However, shipping costs may vary, especially for equipment that needs to be delivered by truck.
If the charges given to you on our online shopping cart are different than the actual shipping cost then a Factory Express customer service representative will contact you with the accurate shipping cost prior to processing your order.
Free Shipping
At our discretion, we may offer free freight on one or more of the products that are on sale. Free freight is based on the ground shipping schedules/rates offered by UPS or FedEx and is valid only in the Continental US.
We will be happy to expedite the shipping on our products or ship them outside of the Continental US; however, additional shipping charges will be applied to your order.
International Orders
Factory Express can ship your purchase to almost any address in the world! Different costs and regulations may apply when your purchase is being shipped outside of the Continental US. Your customer service representative will do their best to provide you with accurate shipping costs; however, the transportation company may charge additional custom or brokerage fees. Your customer service representative will provide you with an estimated cost of shipping. The total actual cost depends on brokerage or custom fees charged by the shipping company at the time of delivery. Factory Express is not responsible for any additional charges originated by the transportation company.

Financing options advertised on any Factory Express e-commerce site, such as equipment leases, are available through a 3rd party provider. Factory Express does not have a legal partnership with these featured companies and they are solely responsible for their own obligations to you. If you desire to obtain financing through a leasing company, you are under no obligation to use the leasing company featured on shop.factory-express.com; however, other leasing companies will be subject to approval by Factory Express.
Monthly lease payments calculated on www.factory-express.com are only approximations and are not guaranteed. Eligibility, rates, and payments for leasing options are not determined by Factory Express; therefore, Factory Express cannot, in any way, be held responsible for the credit decisions made by a 3rd party leasing company. Factory Express reserves the right to determine which, if any, equipment offered on the Factory Express website can be financed through a 3rd party leasing company. An "All Sales are Final" policy will apply to all equipment financed through a 3rd party leasing company.
