Shipping Policy

Due to the current COVID-19 pandemic, UPS & FedEx shipping policies have changed. Read more details here.

We ship product from various distribution points throughout the country in order to deliver parts in a timely manner. All parcel shipping takes place Monday thru Friday. We make every effort to ship in stock orders received by 12:00 PM Central Standard time the same day. Orders that include back-ordered parts will be held to SHIP COMPLETE unless partial shipping is requested. If a partial shipment is requested, additional shipping charges will apply.

We offer Priority Express shipping with the US Postal Service upon request; however, this service may delay the shipment date and transit time of these orders.  All requests for US Postal Service shipping must be made by phone and USPS shipping is not available from all warehouse locations.  For items weighing over 150 lbs, we offer LTL truck deliveries through a number of regional carriers. Customers will be contacted prior to shipping for approval of LTL truck freight charges.

Due to the UPS dimensional weight program, certain items may be deemed oversized. These items will incur additional shipping charges after checkout. Marine Parts Source will contact all customers in these instances for approval prior to shipment.

Free Freight Offer
We are pleased to offer free ground shipping for in-stock orders over $100 to locations within the contiguous United States. This offer consists of free ground shipping of parcel packages with a carrier of our choice. Shipments to Hawaii, Alaska, and outside of the contiguous US do not qualify for this offer. Items deemed by UPS/USPS as oversized either by weight or dimension do not qualify for this offer. In addition, any items that cannot be shipped via a Parcel carrier will also not qualify. You may contact MPS via e-mail or phone if you question whether specific items are included under the Free Freight Program. We will do everything possible to give customers the benefit of the doubt in these instances, though we reserve the right not to sell any product at a loss.

Domestic Shipping Charges & Expedited Services
The shipping amount shown at checkout reflects the cost of shipping with UPS ground service to locations within the contiguous United States. Hawaii and Alaska customers can receive freight quotes over the phone or by e-mail, but it may be charged at a higher rate than shown.

Marine Parts Source also offers the following UPS Delivery Options:

NDA Saturday Saturday morning delivery of packages shipped on Friday (special request by phone only)
NDA Early AM Earliest possible next business day delivery
NDA (Red) Next business day delivery
2nd Day (Blue) 2-business day delivery

The expedited shipping cut-off time is 12:00 PM Central Standard time for in-stock items. We will do our best to accommodate expedited shipping requests after the cut-off time, though we cannot guarantee shipment of expedited orders placed on-line after the cut-off time. Please contact us at 866-388-0390 for expedited shipping inquiries after 12:00 PM Central Standard time. Expedited orders will not display the final shipping total. Additional shipping will be charged to customer’s credit card and reflected on the final invoice sent with the order. Expedited freight quotes can be obtained over the phone or by e-mail. Please be prepared to provide the part numbers needed, the destination zip code, and the shipping service requested.

Shortages & damages MUST be reported within 5 days of receipt in order to receive credit or replacement.

International Shipping
For international shipments, we offer UPS Worldwide International service. The final shipping total at checkout is only an estimate and will vary depending on the items ordered and the destination. We will contact all international customers via e-mail with a final shipping amount prior to shipping. International orders will not ship until the final shipping amount is verified and agreed upon via e-mail. International shipping quotes can also be obtained prior to ordering by e-mail. Please be prepared to provide the part numbers needed and the complete physical shipping address. The final shipping amount charged by MPS is for the delivery costs only and does not include any taxes or duties. All taxes, duties, and brokerage fees associated with international orders are the responsibility of the customer at time of delivery.
