How much is shipping & handling?
For orders with shippable goods, NFPA will add a $9.95 handling fee to orders under $1000, or 2% of merchandise total for orders of $1000 or more. Additional charges for express shipping charges (if requested), and 7.00% sales tax (for California residents only.)* The NFPA online catalog does not have a way to calculate expedited shipping costs at this time. If you select US standard delivery, NFPA pays the shipping. For expedited (rush) orders, the warehouse calculates the most cost effective method to send your order. We charge you the exact cost to us. Your credit card is not charged until the items are shipped. You can place your order by phone at +1 800 344-3555 to get more information about the shipping costs for your order.
