Some of our competitors dramatically increase shipping costs, often charging double, triple or even quadruple of the actual cost to ship the items. Rest assured, Auto Parts Kart has an internal policy to be fair and open with all customers and never try to gouge for shipping costs.
Shipping charges for per transaction are estimated based on Dimension/Weight of the part in the kart, percentage of the price and the type of shipping method selected. The minimum shipping expense is listed for each shipping method. The freight amount charged to customer will be the actual freight charged by the carrier (UPS, Fed-Ex, or USPS).
Tips for saving on shipping costs: Before choosing your shipping option, see the exact ground transit time for your zip code. Sometimes the cheapest option available is also the fastest, aside from the very expensive overnight option. There is no need to use more expensive options like 2nd-day-air when a standard ground shipment is just as fast and much less expensive.
Ground orders are usually delivered in 3 to 7 business days. Some orders may take longer than 7 days. Orders placed after 1 PM EST will be processed the next day for all shipping methods.
Overnight and 2-day delivery is not guaranteed, if you select overnight or 2-day shipping that only means that arrangements will be made to ship it out using that service. Please be aware that overnight orders placed on Friday will be delivered Monday with the exclusion of a holiday. We do not offer delivery on Saturday, Sunday or holidays.
'Transit times' and 'Estimated delivery' dates shown are estimates by the carrier and, while usually accurate, are not guaranteed by AutoPartsKart.com. If you choose a part listed with a delay or a payment method that doesn’t process immediately, add the delay to the shipping estimate for the most accurate shipping time frame.
Some items may have surcharges for size and weight from the shipping service. The customers will be notified for the same prior to shipping, which will be added to shipping charge as an extra cost.
The shipping carrier is solely responsible for all items damaged and lost during shipping. Customers will need to fill out a damaged claim report from the carrier for reimbursement. We do not take returns of damaged items as we are not responsible for the reimbursement.
The customer is responsible for ensuring that the provided address is accessible for delivery. If the delivery of a package is refused or the package is returned by the courier due to an invalid address (undeliverable), all shipping costs (to and fro) will be deducted from customer's refund.
All items purchased from our website are made pursuant to our shipping terms, which are F.O.B. shipping point. This means that that risk of loss and title of any item is passed to you at the shipping point, which is when the carrier accepts the goods for transport.
The website is currently hooked into a live database of parts availability. Just because an item is shown on our website does not mean that the part is available in stock and will be delivered immediately. We will do our best to notify customers of their order status with the notifications provided through this system via email and SMS text messages if a phone number is applied to the customer account with permission to receive updates via SMS text message.
All orders are electronically processed and forwarded to the warehouse immediately upon confirmation of the order. Therefore, there is a very short time for order cancellations. If you wish to cancel an order, you must do so BEFORE Order is processed. All orders placed from Friday 5 PM EST to Monday 9 AM EST cannot be canceled, as these are processed over the weekend for shipment.
