Smithy Machine Shipping - FAQs

1. Basic Shipping Info

Machines within the continental US (lower 48 states) are shipped with a freight carrier - either YRC or Estes Express.
We offer 3 delivery options: Basic, Business and Deluxe. All machines and accessories that are in stock will ship out within
48 hours of purchase. Once shipped you'll receive an automatic email (if provided) with tracking information for the designated
freight carrier (YRC or EST). For pricing to Alaska, Hawaii and Puerto Rico, please call for a shipping quote.

2. Basic Delivery – Pick up from terminal

This delivery method will bring the machine to the freight terminal nearest you for pick up. Once the machine arrives at the terminal, they'll call you to let you know it's ready for pick up. They will load the machine into an open bed pickup, cargo van or trailer. You will need to bring with you an ID and proof of purchase which will be sent to you during the sales transaction.

3. Business Delivery – Forklift

The freight carrier will bring the machine directly to your business for easy offloading without notification - they assume if it is being delivered to a business that the business will be open during normal business hours. For this delivery method, you must have a forklift and your business must be semi-trailer accessible. If you are unsure about semi-trailer accessibility please contact the terminal to discuss options.

4. Deluxe Delivery – Residential

Lift gate curbside delivery -- the freight carrier will lower the machine to ground level, curbside, at the end of your driveway. They will generally use a box truck with a lift gate. That is not 100% guaranteed, so if your residence doesn't have box truck accessibility please contact your local terminal to discuss options. Also, there must be someone home to sign for delivery.

****The driver will not help you move or setup the machine. Please note that this delivery method will be an additional $70 charge on top of standard shipping rate.****

5. Shipment Tracking

Once your machine has left our warehouse, you'll receive an automated email with the tracking/PRO number. You can visit the Estes website at or the YRC website at to track your shipment and know when it has arrived to the destination terminal. The terminal will not call you to let you know your shipment has arrived at the terminal or when it will be delivered to your business of choice. ONLY WITH LIFTGATE/RESIDENTIAL DELIVERY: Once your machine has reached the destination terminal, you will be contacted by a representative from the terminal to schedule a delivery window for drop off with the lift gate truck.

8. Parts and Accessories Shipping

Accessories and parts are shipped with UPS and USPS the *SAME DAY* if ordered by 1pm EST. Machine Stands, Super Indexers, and Rotary tables are all shipped via freight carrier due to the size and weight and will require an extra shipping charge. All Accessories and parts are shipped standard ground unless otherwise specified.

9. Shipping to Canada

We offer two different options when dealing with customs, duties and taxes going into Canada. The first option is to act as your own servicing agent, we'll sell you the machine and ship from our location to the border; contacting a broker and paying duties, taxes and fees is up to you. The second option would be an all-inclusive package where we take care of everything for you; your job is to prepare to receive the machine when delivered. Please give us a call to get a shipping quote - the quote will include the cost of freight, GST/HST, and customs border crossing fees. 

10. International Shipping

Depending on the country in which you live, we will quote and ship to the port nearest you. Forwarding from the port to your door will be your responsibility, as well as paying import customs and taxes to your government. You must provide the machine you are interested, with any accessories, valid contact information, a ship-to address, and the port nearest you to obtain a quote. Please give us a call or email to discuss your options.
