FREIGHT/SHIPPING:

GR8TOPS has partnered with Southeastern Freight lines & R&L Carriers for their delivery of the hardtops.     We will shop these two carriers to find the lowest price option to get your hardtop delivered to you.

The day before your hardtop is shipped, you will receive an automated email from the freight company that contains your tracking number along with an estimated delivery date.  You can track the progress of your shipment using that PRO number by checking on the respective website links above.

We take great care and many precautions in packaging and insulating your hardtop for its transit time.  The half hardtops are completely wrapped in foam bubble wrap, then fully enclosed in a large box and banded to a wooden skid pallet.  The size of the pallet for the half hardtops is approximately 4′ x 5′ and weighs approximately 125 lbs.  The skid can easily be unloaded/loaded into the back of a full size pickup truck by two people.

Even with our top-notch packaging, we cannot prevent all accidents once the skid leaves our facility.  Once you receive your hardtop shipment, PLEASE INSPECT ALL CARTONS BEFORE UNLOADING THEM FROM THE TRUCK.  If significant visible damage is present and the product is damaged beyond use, refuse the shipment and note the damage on the delivery invoice with your signature.  If there are any punctures or any visible damage that you think might have incurred to the product, please note that when signing for the delivery.  Retain all packing materials until after you have fully installed the hardtop.

All freight amounts are just estimates, as freight rates are very volatile.  All rates subject to change.  Please inquire at the contact us page for a definitive freight quotation.  Freight quotations are only guaranteed for 15 days from the date of the quote and the order must be placed within that 15 days for the same freight rate to be valid.  If the order has not been placed within that 15 days, a new freight quote must be generated.

Approximate freight quotes for the half hardtops range from $125 to states nearest South Carolina to $400 on the west coast.

Approximate freight quotes for the full hardtops range from $250 to states nearest South Carolina to $600 on the west coast.

Bulkhead/cab dividers can be shipped individually via FEDEX ground with shipping price range approximately $15 to $35 depending on your location in the continental US.

If you would like a definitive freight quote on a hardtop, please email us through the Contact Us page.  Be sure to include your ZIP code and if delivery will be to a business or residential address.  We will email you back with the freight quote.

Because of the complex and very volatile freight rates, the shopping cart does not automatically calculate freight on the hardtops.    If you are purchasing any hardtop through the shopping cart, the shopping cart does not add in freight costs.    Once the order is complete, we will do a current lookup on the freight rate and then revise the order, resend it to you for your approval before processing the final charge amount.    You will receive a revised order amount that includes the freight for your approval.    If you are purchasing other small items (exogate, JeepJacket etc) in addition to a half hardtop kit that fit inside the same hardtop skid, we will remove the fedex ground charges upon revising the order as well.
