Shop-Abco Free Shipping Policy (UPS Ground available only in the 48 contigous states)
Free shipping is applied when a customer reaches the amount needed to qualify. This amount is subject to change without notification. NOTE: The free shipping policy only applies to orders shipped via UPS Ground, not freight carrier & not overnight, 2 or 3 day services for all and only shop-abco.com orders. This is due to the pricing difference between UPS Ground, and common carriers or UPS overnight services which are more expensive shipping options. Free shipping is not available anywhere outside the 48 contingous states, including HI & AK. If you are from HI or AK, and your order exceeds the specified free shipping amount, a shipping charge will still be applied to your card during your checkout. Only certain shipping options are available for overseas shipping, and rates are typically higher. These terms are non-negotiable.
Sales tax is only required for orders shipping within our resident states of business. Therefore all orders shipping within Connecticut will be charged applicable sales tax.
