Please Note the following changes to our Free Shipping Policy, effective 6/21/22.

  • Orders containing plastic items with a total shipment weight between 150 - 500 lb will ship complete via UPS Ground Freight. These orders are still eligible to receive Free UPS Ground Freight Shipping.
  • Large orders requiring pallets that exceed the limits for UPS Ground Freight will display various Common Carrier freight options. Common Carrier shipments will ship complete and are not eligible for Free Shipping. Read our Common Carrier Terms for additional information.
  • Exceptions to the above criteria may apply. We determine shipping eligibility for each order during the checkout process, according to items ordered and the shipping location. The options available to your order will be displayed at the time of checkout.
  • These changes affect new orders placed on/after 6/21/22. If you have an open order placed prior to this date, your shipping charges will not change for that order.

Free Shipping Terms

  • Continental US: Free UPS Ground shipping is offered for orders with a subtotal of at least $350.
  • Canada: Free UPS Ground shipping is offered for orders with a subtotal of at least $500.
  • The order subtotal of $350 or $500 is based on current list prices on the website. Container Cash and/or discounts that you have applied to your order will be deducted from your eligible product subtotal. If your order is close to the minimum, you may want to consider adding a few additional items to your cart.
  • UPS Ground is the only free shipping method offered. If you require an expedited shipping method such as Second Day Air or Next Day Air, you may still select these methods for an additional charge based on your order and location.
  • Free shipping is only available for orders shipping via UPS within the continental U.S, or most Canadian Territories ; we do not currently offer free shipping to Alaska, Hawaii, Puerto Rico, Yukon Territories, Northwest Territories, New Brunswick, Newfoundland, Labrador, or Nova Scotia. Free shipping is not offered to certain shipping destinations that can only be reached by ferry.
  • Customs fees, taxes or import duties may apply to shipments sent outside of the United States. If your order qualifies for free UPS Ground, this does not include any customs fees, taxes or duties. SKS will not be responsible for payment of any fees related to customs, including any In Bond or storage fees levied on free common carrier shipments. These charges (if applicable) will be your responsibility.
  • If an order cannot be delivered according to the information supplied at the time of the order, or if the order is refused at the time of delivery, any shipping charges, and fees (if applicable) to return the order to SKS will be your responsibility.
  • For larger orders that require pallets for shipment, SKS will recommend the shipment be completed via Common Carrier freight methods. Common carrier shipments do not qualify for free shipping and will ship complete. The shipping cost is calculated based on current carrier rates, and the delivery options chosen.

  • Orders containing select large sized items with a total package girth of over 105" are not eligible for free shipping due to high shipping costs from fees incurred for oversized packages. Items that this applies to will show a message on their product pages stating "Not Eligible for Free Shipping." If this applies to your order, you will also see a note on the Checkout page stating "Your order contains oversized items, and is not eligible for free shipping." We recommend purchasing these items in higher quantities, which may qualify your order for reduced cost Freight shipping methods as a way to lower costs.
