To make buying from Emergency Lighting Service Center simple, shipping and handling within the United States (UPS ground or common carrier) is actual UPS cost plus up to a ONE time $4.00 handling fee. Since E.L.S.C.  is shipping from multiple distribution centers, ordered items may arrive separately. Some of our vendors do not offer shipping with the US Postal Service and because of this, those shipments will be sent using UPS ground. 

Attention: You are responsible for securing your package delivery location. If your package is shown to be delivered by UPS or USPS, you are responsible for the sale of those products. All products will be shipped with a tracking number to prove delivery to specified address.
