Shipping Information

What is a Shipping Address?

Your shipping address is the address to which your order will be shipped. For an Alaska or Hawaii shipping address, please call our Customer Care at 877-659-1789.

Sorry, a shipping address cannot be a P.O. Box number, Military APO/FPO address or U.S Territories address.

When will my order ship?

In stock products usually ship within one business day.

How will my order ship?

Smaller products typically ship via FedEx ground and may arrive in multiple shipments. Some larger products or orders may require delivery by a semi-truck to a receiving dock. If you do not have a receiving dock, you will be responsible for pulling your order off the truck or requesting our special delivery options.

How long will it take to receive my product?

Once your order ships, products are usually delivered within 5 days of shipment.

Can I expedite my shipping?

Currently, we do not offer an option to expedite the shipping on our website. However, you may expedite the shipping with our Customer Care - please call our Customer Care at 1-800-GLUEGUN (1-800-458-3486) for rates.

What are special delivery options?

Special delivery options are services that we offer to customers who may not be equipped to receive a large order that ships via semi-truck. If you are uncertain whether or not you should request these services, please feel free to contact Customer Care at customerservice@adhesivetech.com.

Lift-Gate Service: Service designed to help you remove your order from a semi-truck if your facility does not have a receiving dock.

Inside Delivery: Service designed to deliver your order from the semi-truck to the inside of your facility, if you have a receiving dock. If your facility does not have a receiving dock, this service should be coupled with lift-gate service to remove the product from the semi-truck.

Residential Delivery: Service fee applied to residential addresses for items that require shipment by a semi-truck.
