Rockywoods LogoRockywoods.com Shipping Information

We offer a wide variety of shipping methods so you can choose the service that best meets your needs: cheapest way to fastest delivery.  We offer shipping as inexpensively as possible.  Our philosophy is to cover costs on shipping but this is not a profit center for rockywoods.com.

We offer real-time shipping rate calculations from USPS, UPS and FedEx.  Shipping costs are calculated based on the total weight (and sometimes volume if it's a fluffy item like insulation), the speed of shipping, and your address.

You can get an estimate for the least expensive shipping by just entering the items you want to purchase into your cart and clicking the "Estimated Shipping" link. You need to provide country and postal code only. No login or personal information is required.

The cheapest carrier and way to ship depends on the distance, size and weight.  In general though light packages under 2 lbs are cheaper to ship via USPS.

INCOTERMS

We ship EX WORKS EXW, typically from iLoveland, CO.  INCOTERMS is an set of business practices developed by the International Chamber of Commerce in 1936.

"EX WORKS" indicates the buyer pays shipping cost, and takes responsibility for the goods when the goods leave the seller's premises.  In practice this means that  once the shipment  has been transferred to the carrier, and lost shipments are the responsibility of the buyer and carrier.
