Here we are going to go over how shipping works with Portable Air Group, that way you are informed and can receive your equipment satisfactorily and in the shortest time possible.
We strive to get every order processed, packed, and delivered as quickly as possible but it always helps to understand our shipping protocols. As always if you have any questions please contact us directly at 1-866-948-5300 or by sending an email to shipping(at)portableairgroup.com.
Most of what we ship will qualify as “freight” and be delivered on a 28 or 53 ft trailer by one of the major LTL Freight companies (XPO, Roadway, ABF, FedEx Freight/UPS Freight, etc). All freight deliveries are considered “Dock to Dock” unless otherwise stated in writing specifically to the Buyer. If your facility does not have a suitable dock for freight (LTL) deliveries or you do not have access to a forklift then you will require further services from the carrier, such as “Liftgate at delivery” or “Inside Delivery” and these are provided by the carrier for an optional fee.
We will ask you about this, so make sure you are available if any issues or questions occur.
Handling and Transit Times:
Most orders are shipped within 1 to 2 business days. If it is a stocking item and you place the order before 12:00PM EST it will usually ship the same day. This only applies to stocked units and parts. Please be available via phone or through email during the order process in case we require further information from you for your order. Portable Air Group seeks to ship orders as fast as possible; however we are not responsible for delays, incorrectly delivered packages, weather issues or similar interruptions.
Special Order Items:
There is no precise handling
and transit time designated for custom or special order parts. We order these
parts directly from the manufacturer and Portable Air Group is not responsible
for delays, backorders or transit times. We will provide you with any
tracking/shipping/delivery information in an email as soon as we receive it
from the manufacturer.
Express and Overnight Shipping:
You must contact our sales team
to request an overnight or express shipment. Express and overnight ordersmust be placed before 12 P.M. EST, any express or overnight
orders placed after 12 P.M. EST will be processed the next business day. If you
are unsure of when your express order will ship or be delivered, please feel
free to contact us and we will respond immediately.
Shipping outside the contiguous United States:
Our prices and discounted delivery offers apply to the contiguous lower 48 states only. We offer international shipping options for an additional fee. We can ship to any known point but each international order must be quoted individually and this will usually take 24-48 hrs. Please feel free to contact us to work out any issues with international orders: sales(at)portableairgroup.com or call 866-948-5300.
If a product is considered oversized, it may have to be crated for shipment and/or ship LTL Freight. Oversized items may have additional handling time and specific requirements such as only delivering to a commercial address. Due to the time involved in preparing the shipment, it cannot be shipped via any form of express. Please be aware that transit times typically are longer for freight shipments, Portable Air Group does not guarantee any transit times for freight items, unless the items are shipped “Guaranteed”, which is an additional fee if it is available (Since the COVID-19 pandemic, no LTL companies are offering guaranteed shipping anymore).
In the rare occurrence that a product is out of stock, we will notify you via email to advise you of the expected delay as well as provide you with your options. You can choose to wait for the item, select an alternative, or cancel your order. Out of stock items will be shipped as soon as they become available. Order delivery times may be delayed due to circumstances such as credit authorization, backorders, or insufficient/inaccurate information provided during the order process. You will be contacted via phone or email should such a condition arise. Some items may require that the shipping address match the billing address on the credit card that you are using to place the order. This helps protect you from fraud because the address you enter is verified. Portable Air Group reserves the right to hold, cancel or deny any order for any reason, at any time. If your order is affected, you will be notified within two business days.
TITLE AND RISK OF LOSS
Title and risk of loss passes to Buyer as soon as the goods are safely on board the transport or upon delivery of the Goods at the Delivery Point, depending on the shipping terms (FOB Origin or FOB Destination). If you have any questions or concerns about a product or order, please contact us immediately.

With respect to Nonconforming Goods only, once Seller issues a Return Goods Authorization (“RGA”) Buyer shall ship, at Seller’s its expense and risk of loss, the Nonconforming Goods to Seller’s facility located as designated by Seller.
