Shipping Policy Overview
Per United States Department of Transportation and United Nations regulations, our Lithium Ion Batteries are classified as Class 9 dangerous goods and come under UN3480 shipping and handling rules. As a result there are special shipping requirements and costs associated with our products. All LiFeBlue Battery shipments comply with 49 CFR and IATA Regulations.
For most shipments, LiFeBlue Battery uses FedEx Ground and Home Delivery service. Dangerous goods ground shipments are limited to 70 pounds per package. Batteries in excess of 70 pounds must ship by LTL Freight. LiFeBlue Battery may use USPS or FedEx Ground for non-battery shipments.
There are no guaranteed delivery times for dangerous goods shipments. Your order may be held up by the carrier for any reason.
We only ship to the 48 contiguous States. Shipments to Alaska, Hawaii or other US territory must be by Air Cargo or by using a freight forwarding service. These services are at additional costs to the buyer.
We are restricted from shipping batteries through USPS which excludes delivery to any APO and FPO or any post office box address.
Battery shipments may not be sent to any mail forwarding companies, such as The UPS Store, unless they are certified to handle dangerous goods shipments.
LTL Freight Shipments
The customer is required to unload the battery or pallet from the truck. We recommend that you have a loading dock or forklift available.
Any accessorial fees charged by the carrier, such as residential delivery, lift-gate delivery, inside delivery etc., that are not specified or requested when ordering will be the responsibility of the receiving customer. Please notify us when ordering if a lift gate or other service is required.
Expedited Shipments, Air Cargo
We do not offer expedited shipping service.
All international shipments must be shipped in Air Cargo Only aircraft and may have country or area restrictions. Please contact us for a quote.
Shipping cost is calculated during the check out process. To simplify the complicated dangerous goods fees, we charge a flat rate per box fee. If ordering 3 or more batteries, please contact us first for a reduced shipping cost.
