Oversized Shipping Charges
- We do ship to APO/FPO addresses, please contact us at 877-989-6321 or firstname.lastname@example.org for details. Please allow up to 3 weeks for delivery.
- Because some large items are bulky and heavy, our cost to ship them is higher than for other items. A surcharge is added to these items and will be noted on the product page as well during the checkout process. This charge is in addition to regular delivery fees.
- At this time we only ship to the United States, its territories, and Canada. For product selection and availability outside of the U.S. please contact the nearest Gaiam International Partner.
