WesSpur offers free ground shipping for orders that meet the following criteria:
The free shipping offer covers ground shipping either through UPS or FedEx (Stump Grinder teeth and Chipper Blades eligible for the free shipping offer are shipped via USPS Priority Mail). FedEx Ground is the preferred option for many customers, as Home Delivery runs Tuesday through Saturday. UPS and FedEx Home Delivery require a physical address for delivery (no P.O. boxes).
*Residents of Alaska & Hawaii receive the best shipping rates via USPS Priority Mail, and may request a shipping discount equal to the cost of sending a similar package within the continental U.S.
**Oversized items, such as pole saws, will be charged a separate flat fee of $15 for shipping within the continental U.S. You may order multiple oversized items and they will be covered by the original fee. Other items on the order will receive free shipping if they qualify.
**Overweight items, such as reels of cable, will be charged a separate shipping fee. Reels of cable typically cost $40-50 to ship within the continental U.S.
Orders of in-stock items placed before 3:00 PM Pacific Monday-Friday will be shipped the same day. Back orders, incorrect shipping or credit card billing information, or custom orders may delay shipping.
WesSpur is closed on weekends and major U.S. holidays (Christmas, New Years Day, Memorial Day, Thanksgiving, Labor Day, and 4th of July). All orders placed on the weekend or major holidays are shipped on the following working day.
Back-ordered items may delay the shipping of your order up to 48 hours. If the delay is expected to be longer, we will normally ship all in-stock items and send the back-ordered item when it arrives, at no extra shipping fee (within the continental U.S.). We will contact you if there is an item on your order which cannot be sent right away.
These maps show the number of business days in transit for FedEx and UPS. Priority Mail is 2 to 3 business days within the continental U.S. Please note that only FedEx Home Delivery, and Next Day Air Saturday Delivery will deliver on Saturdays, and that the day the package shipped is not included in these times. Sundays and major Holidays are also not counted in the shipping time.
Saturday Delivery is available for Next Day Air packages in some areas, and must be chosen during checkout if an order placed Friday is to arrive Saturday, otherwise Next Day Air packages shipped via Next Day Air on Friday will arrive on Monday.
Please note that shipping times guaranteed by UPS or FedEx are not guaranteed in the face of delays caused by forces outside of their control, such as inclement weather or disasters.
When you complete your order, you will see your order confirmation number. You will also receive an email when your order ships that will display the tracking number. Finally, you can login to your WesSpur account if you opted to have your information saved when you placed your order, and view the progress of all your orders. Tracking numbers are generated when your package labels are printed, but are not active until after UPS has picked up your package and scanned it into their system.
Shipments to Alaska and Hawaii are not eligible for Free ground shipping, though you may request a discount on shipping charges on orders over $100. The best way to ship to these states is usually USPS Priority Mail. It is relatively inexpensive, tends to be both reliable and relatively quick (5-7 days), and is the most popular option for our tree climbing customers in Alaska and Hawaii. UPS and FedEx also deliver to these states, but are more expensive options. Air services such as 2 Day Air and Next Day Air are not guaranteed to arrive within the stated term. They are usually close, but not always on time and can be fairly expensive.
It is sometimes difficult for our website to calculate these costs accurately and they are occasionally wrong. In these cases, we have to manually override the freight charges and will notify you of any changes.
Yes, WesSpur ships around the globe to tree climbers in many different countries. Shipping rates vary widely from one country to the next, and are not always correctly computed during checkout. Shipping by USPS Priority Mail International is often the least expensive method, and is both reliable and relatively quick (4-10 days, not including time spent clearing customs). UPS and FedEx offer faster shipment and have the benefit of online tracking numbers, but they are usually more expensive, and may require customs brokerage fees. These fees are charged by the carrier and we do not have a way of advising you of the cost before UPS or FedEx deliver the package.

Your local government may charge duties, import fees, or tariffs on your package when it arrives. Check with your postal officers for information on the taxes and duties you will be responsible for. WesSpur does not have a way of advising you of these duties before your package ships, and the receiver of the package is solely responsible for them.
