Shipping estimates to US customers is a line item in the order. Shipments under 100 pounds will be delivered via UPS Ground. Shipments 100 lbs and over, or shipments with a length over 90 inches, will be delivered via LTL common carrier. We recommend that you utilize the liftgate service for items 100 pounds and over. Liftgate Service lowers the shipment from the delivery vehicle to curbside and does not include inside delivery, un-crating or installation. The fee for Liftgate Service varies between Residential and Commercial delivery addresses, which are managed by you in your Customer Profile or during checkout using our Shipping Calculator. We are unable to deliver to Post Office Boxes or to APO/FPO addresses.
If our shipping carrier determines that your address is inaccessible for delivery, please contact MyChefStore.com Customer Service at 866-446-2930 (10:00 a.m. - 6:00pm PST, M-F) immediately so that we may assist you in making other arrangements. This may involve final delivery at the nearest shipping terminal. In whatever manner you receive a delivery, please note that it remains your responsibility to follow our Rules of Receiving guidelines.
Most orders arrive within 5 - 14 days from completion of your order. Special Orders, orders for furniture or large equipment may take longer. SHIPPING TIMELINES ARE NOT GUARANTEED. All displayed shipping terms are estimates only and cannot account for delays by the freight carrier, including but not limited to inclement weather or traffic delays. If delivery of your shipment is date sensitive, or if your shipping address requires special consideration (such as being rural or difficult to access), please contact MyChefStore.com Customer Service at 866-446-2930 (10:00 a.m. - 6:00pm PST, M-F) or email firstname.lastname@example.org immediately so that we may assist you in making arrangements.
Occasionally, there may be an error in automated estimation of shipping charges, and MyChefStore.com reserves the right to increase shipping costs on orders. MyChefStore.com will contact Customer if there is a change in shipping cost, and Customer approval must be received before an item with a shipping price change ships.

Rules of Receiving
Care is taken when packing your order and all equipment is inspected before shipping, but on occasion a shipment may be lost or damaged in transit. At the time your shipment is received, it is your responsibility to follow these guidelines.
Before you sign the delivery receipt (or bill of lading), and before the driver departs:
- Verify the number of cartons.
- Open, unpack and thoroughly inspect your shipment for any damage. If damage or shortages are discovered, you must make a notation on all copies of the freight bill describing the damage or shortage in detail.
- It is your right to refuse any shipment that shows signs of damage or shortage at the time of delivery.
- Your signature on the delivery receipt is an acknowledgement that the shipment was received in good condition and without damage or shortage.
- If the driver demands to leave before all portions of your shipment have been inspected, note on the delivery receipt (near your signature) that the driver would not allow for inspection.
If concealed damage is discovered:
- Save all shipping cartons and packing materials.
- Immediately request an inspection by the carrier and file a freight claim.
- If packing materials are not saved, your opportunity to recover damages will be restricted. Failure to follow any of the above mentioned guidelines will also restrict your ability to return merchandise or file a claim for damages.
- The freight carrier is responsible for loss or damage. MyChefStore includes freight protection coverage in the cost we pay the carrier. It is your responsibility to file all claims with the freight carrier in a timely fashion in accordance with their terms and conditions.
