Delivery Promise

Most products are in stock for immediate shipment through our network or reliable freight carriers – usually within 24 hours.  All orders receive a confirmation and you’ll be notified if there is a delay.  Foster ships FOB Montgomeryville, PA through a national network of reliable carriers for fast service and freight savings. A $20 service charge is applied to equipment orders over $100.00 and a $50 skid charge is applied to all LTL shipments that need to ship on a skid. We take pride in taking care of how our items are shipped to eliminate any shipping damages.

Shipping Charges & Estimates

The amount of your shipping charge is an estimate.  The shipping estimate is based upon the product’s shipping classification, weight, transit time, and total of your order.  Your order will be reviewed by Foster’s customer service representatives before payment is finalized.  This is for accuracy of your order, inventory and adjustments to shipping charges.
