Here at EMAPA, we believe in excellent customer service where your order comes first. Orders placed during normal business hours, Monday through Friday central time 9:00 am-5:00 pm will be processed the same day. Orders not within normal business hours will be processed as soon as possible during the next business hours. Special order products ship based on the lead times of each manufacturer. Even items "In Stock" may be out of stock before your order is processed. Once a lead time is established you will be notified and if you choose to cancel your order then there will be no cancelation fees.

Shipping charges are automatically calculated by the mailing carrier chosen by the customer, unless choosing the free shipping option (see below). Shipping charges on some special materials, hazardous items, oversize items may not be accurately quoted by the carrier. If this is the case, the costs may show as "TBD, To Be Determined" or EMAPA may contact the customer about these costs. The size and weight of the order, the carrier chosen and the level of freight determines the shipping charges charged to the customer during checkout.

Free Shipping Option:
Orders with promotional code or that qualify for free shipping will be shipped using FedEx Ground shipping. Use the promotional code during the first step in the check out process when you go to your cart.
