Foreign Orders

We regret that we are unable to accept foreign orders at this time.

Shipping Methods:

  • UPS (primary shipping method), Parcel Post (if requested), or Truck Freight.
  • Special priority shipping options available at higher costs
  • Shipping and Handling Charges are figured for UPS on the web site. Each item weight is added up for the total weight, all fractions of a pound are considered a full pound.
  • We divide the total weight by 35 pounds to determine the number of packages to be shipped.
  • We use the UPS charts to determine shipping charges.

Please be sure to provide the correct address with your order. UPS charges for incorrect addresses and routing changes will be forwarded to your bill. UPS charges an additional amount for delivery to rural areas and those charges may also be forwarded to your bill. Note: These shipping charges may not be sufficient for lightweight bulky merchandise or weights over 40 pounds which will be shipped in multiple packages. We reserve the right to bill you for additional shipping charges.

Dimensional weight may be used rather than actual weight. Dimensional weight is a formula used by package delivery companies to determine a billing weight based on density for air shipments or large bulky items. Some items may show the billing weight rather than the actual weight. Parcel Post must be requested separately; otherwise all shipments are by United Parcel Service, unless your order is too large for UPS, in which case we will ship by Truck Freight.

We are not responsible for typographical or photographic errors that may appear in any Dadant material. We reserve the right to make adjustments or corrections due to changing market conditions, product discontinuations or typographical or photographic errors in products.


Items back-ordered always receive first priority handling. Freight charges for a back-ordered item are your responsibility. You will be charged freight for any back-ordered item just as if it was shipped with your original order.
