Free Shipping Offer & Shipping Questions

WesSpur Free Shipping - Best Way

WesSpur offers free ground shipping for orders that meet the following criteria:

  • $99 or more before tax
  • Ship-to address within the contiguous U.S.*
  • Standard-size and weight items (no poles, reels of cable or rope, or other oversized / overweight items**)

Orders shipped with WesSpur Free Shipping will be sent by UPS ground or USPS Priority Mail. WesSpur will choose the best method to get your order to you. UPS Ground is 1-5 days within the continental US. Priority mail is 1-3 days. UPS Ground does not deliver on Saturday or Sunday, and requires a physical address (no P.O. boxes). Stump Grinder teeth and Chipper Blades eligible for the free shipping offer are shipped via USPS Priority Mail, in Medium Flat Rate 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 contiguous U.S.
  • **Oversized items, such as pole saws, will be charged a separate fee for shipping within the contiguous U.S.. Other items on your order will ship for free if they qualify.
  • **Overweight items, such as reels of cable or rope, are excluded from free shipping and will be charged a shipping fee.�Other items on your order will ship for free if they qualify.

When will my order ship?

Orders of in-stock items placed before 1:00 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 contiguous U.S.). We will contact you if there is an item on your order which cannot be sent right away.

How long will my order take to arrive?

These maps show the number of business days (M-F) in transit for UPS. Priority Mail is 2 to 3 business days within the contiguous U.S. Please note that only Next Day Air Saturday Delivery will deliver on Saturdays, and that the day the package shipped is not included in these times. Saturdays, 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 are not guaranteed in the face of delays caused by forces outside of their control, such as inclement weather or disasters.

How can I track my order?

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 your package has been picked up and scanned it into their system.

What's the best way to ship to Alaska or Hawaii?

Shipments to Alaska and Hawaii are not eligible for Free ground shipping, though you may request a discount on shipping charges on orders over $99. 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.

International shipping

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.

We are happy to provide a custom shipping estimate for your order. We will need your full address and list of items to calculate shipping accurate. Please contact us for a shipping quote.

International Orders

General Information for International Orders

WesSpur is located in Bellingham, WA in the U.S.A. We are a short drive from Vancouver, BC in Canada. (See the Map to WesSpur.) We do business all over the world and can accept Visa, Master Card, American Express, Discover Card, and PayPal payments. For very large international orders we will need to arrange payment via wire transfer. Please contact us to inquire about wire transfer.

International Shipping Options

USPS International Mail is available either as Priority Mail or Express Mail. Priority Mail is usually very reasonable, and is quoted as 6-10 days delivery time, thought this does not include time spent in customs. Express Mail is faster, but more expensive. USPS mail shipments are not time-definite and do not give detailed tracking, though we can see when the package leaves the US, enters foreign customs, and leaves foreign customs for delivery. International Priority Mail is generally our recommended postage option for international addresses.

UPS has a time-definite delivery and provides a detailed tracking number. UPS is usually the more expensive option. Available as either UPS Expedited or UPS Express (1-2 day delivery.) Customers in Canada can choose 'Canada-UPS Standard' as a shipping option and receive reasonable rates.

Please not that UPS often charges Customs Brokerage Fees in addition to the shipping amount. These fees are collected by UPS, and we do not have a way of calculating them, nor is WesSpur in any way responsible for them.

Please note! Selecting a shipping option that is for the U.S. only (such as UPS Ground or regular Priority Mail) will result in the computer giving you a misleading shipping amount. If you choose a shipping option that is for the U.S. only, but your address is outside of the U.S. we will change your shipping method to the least expensive valid option and charge the correct amount. We will always try to contact you in these circumstances so you are aware of the actual charges.

Our free shipping option is valid for the contiguous U.S. only, and does not apply to International Orders.

Any packages that are refused delivery will be returned to WesSpur. In these cases shipping will not be refunded and in addition shipping charges will be collected to cover the return freight to WesSpur.

Taxes and Duties

Your local government may charge taxes and duties on your shipment of items as they are imported goods. WesSpur does not collect this money, nor can we estimate the amount for you. Your local post or trade officials should be able to help you estimate the duty and tax on your order.

Currency Conversion

Please note some bankcards will "hold" funds for 10 days, other bankcards are up to 30 days.
