Our Policies

Shipping Policies

When will my order ship and how long will it take for delivery?

It is our goal to make sure your order is processed quickly and efficiently.

Generally, we ship in-stock orders within 1-2 business days. Most orders placed after Noon ET on Friday will not begin processing until the following business day, Monday.

Please review the product page for the product(s) you have ordered, which will indicate the inventory availability status of the product. Inventory available is also reflected in our shopping cart. Products that are out of stock will be shipped automatically once we receive additional inventory. Products that ship from the manufacturer will be submitted for processing within one business day.

The Tool Nut ships orders using FEDEX Ground or USPS, whichever provides the best delivery to you, unless expedited shipping is selected. The FEDEX Transit Time map below gives rough estimates on shipping times from our New York state warehouse. Please note that we cannot ship to P.O. Box addresses, so please provide a FEDEX deliverable shipping address to prevent delivery delays. The transit times shown are not guaranteed, but indicate expected ship times under normal conditions.

Signature Required Shipments

For most orders, a signature is not required upon delivery. To add a signature requirement to your shipment, email info@toolnut.com immediately after placing the order. We will do our best to accommodate your request.

All shipments valued at more than $2000 may require an adult signature (by the customer or the customer's authorized agent at the delivery location) upon delivery. Please ensure that someone will be available to sign for the delivery at your chosen location. This protects you from potential theft or misdelivery.

Prior to shipment, email info@toolnut.com for delivery address change requests. We will do our best to accommodate your request.  Once an order has shipped, you can manage the delivery via FedEx Delivery Manager.

FEDEX Transit Time Map

UPS Ground Transit Time

Do you ship to my country?

We do not ship internationally. We only ship to locations within the United States. Due to distribution agreement's with our vendors, we're unable to ship to any freight forwarding companies. 

Hawaii and Alaska

Due to the rising cost of shipping, we no longer offer shipping to Alaska and Hawaii.

Shipping Oversized Products

Rolair, Laguna, Sawstop, Teknatool and other unique or oversized products will have shipping charges noted during the checkout process or you will be contacted by customer service before the order is fully processed to apprise you of any additional charges.

What does it mean when a product states "Ships from manufacturer"?

In order to better serve our customers, there are some items that we ship direct from the manufacturer to expedite delivery. While most orders are processed very quickly, within 24-hours of receipt, there are circumstances when the order may be delayed due to lack of inventory from the manufacturer.

What is Priority Order Processing?

In a rush to get your order? For a small fee, you can select the Priority Order Processing option for shipping and your order will be moved to the front of our queue, expediting shipment. Priority Order Processing does not guarantee delivery time or result in faster transit time. Priority Order Processing is only available for in-stock items.

FEDEX Expedited Delivery Options

We offer expedited delivery via FEDEX for most orders. Guaranteed delivery times are based on business days which excludes weekends and holidays. If you require delivery by a specific date and have questions, we encourage you to contact us for more information. The Tool Nut makes every effort to process orders as quickly as possibly to ensure fast delivery. However, we cannot be responsible for delivery times of shipping providers.


All large machinery (Including, but not limited to: Jointers, Bandsaws, Planers, Dust Collectors, Air Filtration Systems, Drill Presses, Oversized Guide Rails (95”+), etc) is delivered on a freight truck. Freight deliveries are unable to be expedited. Liftgate service is included in the delivery. The Liftgate service simply lowers the pallet to ground level; you will be responsible for moving the pallet into its final destination.

Orders being shipped using Freight/LTL as the delivery method are unable to be cancelled or modified after the order has been confirmed with the manufacturer. Orders are usually confirmed with our vendors within 24-48 hours of your order being submitted to the Tool Nut. Please contact us by phone if you wish to cancel your order at 914-621-0200 ext 2.

Once a freight item is in transit, we are unable to modify the shipping address. You will be responsible for any additional fees associated with any changes after the order has been confirmed.

It is imperative that upon delivery, you fully inspect the pallet as received. If you notice any cuts, dents, dings, or other marks on the outside of the pallet, please take photographs and note this on the Bill of Lading (the paper you will sign for delivery). Retain a copy of the Bill of Lading from the shipping company, and contact us immediately. Do not contact the Shipping Company, or the Manufacturer, as we are the seller of the product. Freight claims have a very short window for us to submit to the carrier; we will need this information within 1 day of delivery. We are unable to guarantee that a freight claim submitted after 24 hours of delivery will be accepted.

Reseller Policy

Due to distribution agreements with our vendors, we're unable to sell to other retailers, wholesalers, or other non-authorized resellers on third-party marketplaces. We reserve the right to immediately cancel and refund any orders received from these entities at our sole discretion.

Sales Tax

In 2018, the Supreme Court ruled that online retailers, like The Tool Nut, are required to collect sales tax in states where an economic nexus exists. As a result, The Tool Nut is required by law to collect sales tax on all orders in the states listed below. Also, in some cases, The Tool Nut will drop ship your order from a product manufacturer which may require collection of sales tax in other states where the manufacturer has sales tax nexus. Sales tax will be commuted and applied to your order, when applicable, for your review during checkout. Should you have any questions regarding sales tax, please call, email or live chat with us.

As of October 2019, we collect sales tax in the following states. This list is subject to change without notice.

Alabama, Arkansas, California, Colorado, Connecticut, Florida, Georgia, Hawaii, Iowa, Illinois, Indiana, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, Nevada, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, North Dakota, Ohio, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, South Carolina, South Dakota, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, Vermont, Virginia, Washington, West Virginia, Wisconsin and Wyoming.

Alabama Sales Tax
Seller has collected the simplified sellers use tax on taxable transactions delivered into Alabama and the tax will be remitted on the customer's behalf to the Alabama Department of Revenue. Seller's program account number is SSU-R010380080.
