Shipping Policies

Guaranteed Same Day Shipping

 All orders placed and paid for with UPS shipping selected before 3pm EST Monday thru Friday will be shipped out from our location the same day. Guaranteed shipping does not apply to any order in which there is a problem with verifying the billing address. Any product that is marked "Out of Stock" is not available for this service and will ship when it becomes available. If a product is marked as "In Stock" and is not shipped the same day, we will provide a refund on the ground service shipping price. We are dedicated to honoring our same day shipping guarantee, however sometimes Mother Nature has other plans. In the event of inclement weather or other unforeseen interruptions of service, we are unable to guarantee same day shipping. In these events, weather conditions and other circumstances outside of our control may also cause delays in transit which unfortunately are out of our hands as well as our shipping carrier’s hands. Please know that we will do everything we can within reason to ensure that your order is shipped and delivered in a timely manner.

 Signature Required Service

Any orders placed through Maxtow with one of the following upgraded shipping methods, Next Day Air, Second Day Air, and Three Day, must be shipped to the billing address and are subject to a Signature Confirmation Service at delivery. Also, any orders placed with Maxtow that are higher than $300.00 must also be shipped to the billing address and will require a Signature Confirmation Service at delivery.

Canadian Customs and Brokerage Fees with UPS Standard Shipping 

Canada Customs requires Canadian recipients to pay applicable duties and taxes on each shipment entering Canada. These charges may include PST, GST, HST, duties and other taxes of goods (e.g., excise tax). A brokerage fee is also charged to process shipments and present the requisite customs paperwork to Canada Customs on the importer’s behalf. Your order will be shipped under UPS’s e-Tailer Brokerage Program (eBP), where eligible shipments imported into Canada for non-commercial purposes and valued under CAD$ 500 shipped via UPS Standard service are subject to a reduced brokerage fee of CAD$ 10, plus any applicable duties and taxes. Shipments valued at CAD$ 500 and above and/or being imported to Canada for commercial purposes and/or subject to specialized clearance may incur additional fees. Please, be aware that UPS will request payment of these charges at the time of delivery. You have the ability to call UPS ahead of time (1-800-742-5877) to pay these charges, eliminating the need for payment on delivery.
