Calculating Ship Date:

Cylinders Now working days are Monday - Thursday.

All cylinder orders placed before 10AM Eastern count the current day as Day 1 (if it falls on a workday).  If the order is placed after 10 AM Eastern or on a non-working day the following workday will count as Day 1.

Holidays and Plant Shutdowns do not count as working days.  See the list below.

Shipping Date Examples:

Order for Cylinders is placed at 9AM Eastern Monday.  Order will be ready for pickup on Wednesday after 4:30 PM.

Order for Cylinders is placed 3PM Eastern Wednesday.  Order will be ready for pickup the following Tuesday after 4:30 PM.

Order is placed on Sunday. Order will be ready for pickup the following Wednesday after 4:30 PM.

Mixed Lead Time Orders:

All orders ship complete, so when combining items with mixed lead times the longest lead time will be used.  You may place separate orders to get the shorter lead time items quicker.  This will result in multiple shipments/pickups.


 I only see Pickup / Freight as an option:

This means your order has exceeded our limit of 130 lbs or you have not yet entered a Zip Code.  If possible you may break your large order into multiple smaller orders.  This may allow for ground shipping to become an option.
