Fair warning: our most popular items sell quickly. Most of our products have MAP prices (meaning if the dealer gets caught advertising them for less, the distributor or manufacturer may not ship the order — be they the smallest store or Amazon.)

Take advantage of our no Bull Shipping Policy: All Items Ship Free to the 48 Contiguous United States Every Day. We just HATE looking for the lowest price, only to get whacked with extra shipping at checkout. Or, looking to buy things to get our total up to a certain dollar amount…and often finding the things we want are “exempt” from free shipping. (That’s not Free Shipping, it’s trickery: that’s why our Shipping is No Bull Every Day.)

(Except freight orders of very large quantities of large products, where flatbeds, forklifts or loading docks and staff necessary for delivery: a very small portion of our sales and most of these are large numbers of commercial lights, street lights, etc.)
