Shipping Methods & Costs
Though we ship most items via FedEx, we reserve the right to ship items via USPS, UPS, or common carrier (18-wheeler). Shipping charges are based on standard FedEx or UPS rates (where applicable), according to package weight, size, and distance shipped. Orders placed after 3:30pm CST will generally ship the next business day. At this time, we do not ship outside of the United States.
DecksDirect offers FREE ground shipping* on most orders in the contiguous 48 states with minimum purchase. Most Free Shipping items ship via FedEx Ground.
If you opt to pay for expedited shipping, please note that shipments only depart our warehouse Monday–Friday.
If your expedited order requires Saturday Delivery, please contact us. Additional charges may apply and some addresses are not available for FedEx or UPS Saturday Delivery.
LTL Freight Shipping
Because some items we offer are too large and/or heavy for standard ship methods, they are shipped via LTL (Less than Truckload) Delivery or common carrier (18-wheeler). If your order requires freight shipping, we will contact you to discuss the details prior to shipment. If special services (such as a lift gate) are required, any additional fees are your responsibility. Signatures are required for all freight shipments.

Inventory & Lead Times
Guaranteed in Stock Items
Many items we offer are Guaranteed in Stock, so they will ship out the same day if ordered before 3:30pm CST, Monday–Friday. Because we're so confident in our fast shipping, if an item listed as Guaranteed in Stock doesn't ship the same day, we'll give you $100!
Quick Ship Items
Quick Ship items will typically ship out the same day if the order is placed before 3:30pm CST, Monday–Friday. Due to unexpected demand, we cannot guarantee these items will ship the same day. If you have a time-sensitive order, don’t hesitate to call us at 1-888-824-5316 for shipping and delivery schedules.
Drop Shipment Items
In an effort to get your order out as quickly as possible, we may ship your order directly from the manufacturer. Delivery times in those instances may vary, but be assured that we only do business with manufacturers that meet our high shipping standards.
Out of Stock & Special Order Items
If an order is partially out of stock, the order will ship as soon as the entire order is in stock. The team at DecksDirect will contact you if an item is not available or requires special order. Due to availability and vendor issues, we can only estimate shipping times for these products. If you choose to remove the item from your order, we’ll issue a refund.
Remember, if you have a time-sensitive order, don’t hesitate to call us at 1-888-824-5316 to make arrangements. We're here to figure out the best way to get your order to you on time!
