    An Upright Bass is too large to ship via conventional carriers like FedEx and UPS and “Oversized” carriers like freight lines and trucking companies must be used. These oversized freight companies will call you to set a delivery appointment, usually a 2-hour window. If you don’t keep this appointment they will charge you $50 to $70 for Redelivery.

    If delivering to Commercial Addresses they will NOT call to set an appointment, they will deliver during regular business hours of 8-5 and expect you to be open.
    If you are not open at those hours you should contact them at the Ph# provided with the tracking and receiving information that will be emailed to you, and arrange delivery during your business hours.

    *A Qualified Commercial Address is defined as a business address in an area that is incorporated or “Zoned” Commercial and where a large truck has Easy Access. Easy access means a commercial address with a shipping & receiving/Loading dock or a place that is directly adjacent to an entrance not requiring any additional handling, i.e., stairs or anything past the front door. There are additional handling charges for those and other services. In short, anything other than driving up, dropping off the shipment and driving away is charged for. When choosing the Commercial Address option below be sure to include the name of the Company in the checkout process.

    Shipping rates can vary greatly depending on where you live. More remote commercial shipping addresses on the East Coast, New England, New York, New Jersey as well as Florida or the upper Midwestern States such as North Dakota, South Dakota, Minnesota, Wisconsin, Indiana, Michigan and Ohio, for example, require additional shipping charges usually running between $35 and $85, but in the most crowded or remote areas can add on up to $140. These types of shipping destinations are more expensive to ship to from here in California.

    The customer will need to make up the difference between the initial $99 shipping and the actual shipping costs. In any case, FMI will contact you if there is additional shipping due.
    Shipping to a residential address is $65 more to any State as it takes special handling by the freight line.
