Free Shipping Details
Orders placed with hotBlinds.com are normally shipped via standard FedEx and UPS and the shipping costs are "no charge" to you. That's free shipping. Occasionally, blinds and shades are so large they are considered "Over Sized" by UPS and FedEx. "Over Sized" means that a packaged cannot be shipped as standard and must be shipped "common carrier." FedEx and UPS may still be used as the shipper or a freight company may be used to ship the order to you. If an order is "Over Sized" we must pass along part of the extra shipping charges to you. The size of the shipping box, not the size of the blind or shade, determines whether or not it is "Over Sized." To be considered "Over Sized" the actual size of the blind or shade varies depending on the manufacturer but in most cases horizontal blinds and shades that exceed 98" in width must be shipped via common carrier. Vertical blinds that exceed 98" in width or length must be shipped common carrier. We've negotiated special shipping prices for over sized orders and it varies from $40 to $95. Please keep in mind that the over sized shipping charge is applied to the entire order (blinds or shades of the same brand) not for each blind or shade. In other words whether you have one over sized blind or shade (of one brand) or many blinds or shades the extra shipping charge is applied just one time – not for each blind or shade that is over sized.
