Shipping and handling costs are calculated at checkout. At Schools In we strive to give you the lowest shipping rates by checking several discounted carriers for the most economical way to ship. Here's a bit more info on how we ship to you:

  • Select items qualify for free shipping in the contiguous U.S.
  • Small orders will be shipped via Fed Ex or UPS Ground.
  • Larger orders may require a freight quote, and therefore shipping costs cannot be calculated upon checkout. In this case, you will receive a call within 24 hours from one or our friendly customer service consultants who will discuss the shipping costs with you.

Delivery Options

Here's how you can expect your order to arrive:

  • For small shipments- Fed Ex/UPS will deliver cartons off of their trucks and into your building.
  • For large shipments- A truck will deliver your merchandise using standard tailgate delivery if your building has a dock. If your building does not have an accessible loading dock, please let us know in the shipping instructions.
  • Additional charges may apply for liftgate delivery or inside delivery. Liftgate delivery is recommended for heavy and larger shipments. A liftgate can be used to lower merchandise off the truck to the ground.
  • If you think you'll need further assistance, for an additional charge you can ask for inside delivery during checkout. The truck driver will help you unload the merchandise from the truck into your building.
