How does shipping work?
When ordering online, our website calculates the shipping charges automatically in real-time, giving you the options to ship via FedEx, UPS or USPS Priority Mail. Expedited shipping is also available. All orders that are large enough to be shipped via freight carrier we will provide you with a freight quote which the purchaser will pay for the freight expense. All freight shipments must have a freight form filled out in full before we can book your freight for pick up. We strive to ship in-stock items within 24 – 72 hours after receiving order.
As a rule of thumb, shipping charges we assess simply amount to whatever FedEx, UPS, USPS or Freight carriers published rates are with 0% markup.

How does freight work?
If shipping via freight truck you must be able to accommodate a truck at your residence/business and that it is your responsibility to unload the freight. Some items cannot be unloaded without using a forklift/lift gate. If unloading by hand, be prepared to off-load the pallet that holds your order in approximately 15 minutes, or you may be charged an additional fee by the trucking company for the extra time (rates up to $100/hr).
Do not sign for your freight shipment until you have confirmed an identical count of boxes, bags, rolls, bundles, pails, etc. and have checked very carefully for apparent and/or concealed damage. We will not accept any responsibility for missing and/or damaged items unless you note a count discrepancy and/or identify damage on the bill of lading at the time of delivery *Take pictures immediately of damaged freight*.

Visible Damage, Concealed Damage, and Missing Content Claims - Visible Damage is defined as any damage to the packaging that is identifiable without opening the package at the time of delivery. Concealed Damage is defined as any damage that is not immediately noticeable at the time the package is opened or when the product is first used.

These types of claims must be made directly to Rocky Mountain BioAg within 5 business days of delivery. Any claims made after that time cannot be honored. Please contact Rocky Mountain BioAg at 877-874-2334 or email Support@RockyMountainBioAg.com to make such a claim.
Incorrect Delivery and Lost Package Claims - Incorrect Delivery is defined as any incident where the driver delivers the package to the wrong address or individual. Lost Packages may occur in two ways. First, lost packages may occur when packages are not able to be located within the carrier's network. Second, a package may be considered lost when the carrier claims delivery was completed by leaving the package on the doorstep, but the customer cannot locate the package. Both incorrect delivery and lost package incidents are usually discovered through standard tracking of the package. Claims for either of these problems must be made directly to Rocky Mountain BioAg upon discovery. No claims will be honored after 30 days from shipment date. Please contact Rocky Mountain BioAg at 877-874-2334 or email Support@RockyMountainBioAg.com to make such a claim.
