“In Stock” items usually ship within three business days of receiving the order, and “Special Order” items (product that is not in stock and is specially ordered for customer), are based on information provided by manufacturer or supplier.

All lead times are noted in the product descriptions. “Special Order” lead times are estimates only, and are subject to change without notice.

Thomas FX will not be held liable for any loss, damage, cost or expense related to any delay in shipment or delivery.

As the products we sell are “In Stock”, “Back Order”, or “Special Order”. The items in your order may ship and be delivered separately. All "In Stock" items will be shipped together.

Your “Ship To Address" can be different than your “Billing Address", but if you are purchasing multiple items and require multiple shipping addresses you must make individual purchases for each shipping address.

We do not ship to PO Boxes under any circumstances.

All orders require a signature upon delivery as proof of receipt.

Customers must be available to accept their shipment at time of delivery. If a shipment becomes undeliverable, and any extra expenses are incurred and/or shipment is returned to sender, the customer will be held responsible for any such extra costs associated with the undeliverable shipment as well as all costs to re-ship the order.


Most items ship via UPS Standard, FEDEX Standard, or Canada Post Standard, unless otherwise specified. You may select the method and level of delivery service during the checkout process.

Some products may not be shippable via the usual methods mentioned above, and may require an alternative method. These products may include larger heavier items, which will usually ship via a "Freight" company.

Whenever possible, we will provide you with information necessary to track your shipment once it has been shipped. This may include a link to the shipping company’s website and/or their contact information, as well as a tracking and/or reference number of your shipment. You may also login into your account to find information regarding your order. Information provided from these sources is the most up-to-date information available, and is the same information that is available to us. Therefore, tracking the package yourself is usually quicker, and more convenient for you, than calling us first.


All products are carefully inspected for damages during the packing process. Then, before your shipment is completed a second person double checks the order. When your order leaves our warehouse, there are no visible damages. If the product is damaged when it arrives at your destination, it has been damaged during transport.

Although we make every effort to ensure your purchase arrives to you safely, damage and loss can still sometimes occur. If you receive a damaged shipment, or believe you are missing something, please contact us immediately. You are also required to retain all packaging related to the damaged items for possible inspection and return shipping. Please take digital photos of the damaged items, and packaging. This is mandatory when processing a damage claim with the delivery company. No damage claims will be processed without digital photographic images of the damages being claimed.

Damage must be reported to Thomas FX within 24 hours following receipt. Damage claims reported after 24 hours of receipt of shipment will not be accepted.

We recommend inspecting your shipment immediately upon receipt to ensure there is no damage. If inspection is not possible upon receipt, but you suspect damage or there is damage to the package (i.e. crushed, torn, creased or opened) please make sure that a note of "received damaged" or “possible damage” is recorded when signing for your shipment. This is also important, and helpful, when processing a damage claim.

We will always strive to make your shopping experience with us as pleasurable and positive as possible. If there are any problems with your order, from the ordering process to the delivery, we will do what we can to make things right as quickly and smoothly as possible.


Thomas FX recycles shipping materials in an effort to minimize waste produced by the company. Please recycle the packaging that you receive from us whenever possible.
