Hoosier Crane Shipping Policy
Orders placed by 2:00 PM EST will be processed the same day. However, this does not mean that orders placed by 2:00 PM will be shipped the same day. Some orders will ship the same day, and most orders will be shipped within 2 business days. Orders that will take longer to ship - including but not limited to items over 150 lbs which require freight shipping, custom built hoists or non-stock parts, rarely replaced parts of hoists and hoist components - will be specially marked online or you will receive notice of the delay.
Please note that Hoosier Crane has a $50.00 Minimum Order Amount for online purchases.
When your order is shipped, you will receive a notification and shipment tracking number from UPS or other carrier. You will receive the tracking number within 24 hours of the order being shipped on a normal basis. For some orders, a tracking number may not be immediately available, this is often the case with direct ship orders. We apologize in advance for this inconvenience.
Meanings of Availability Status
Fast Ship - This is a special designation of product that is physically ready to ship either directly from our Elkhart, IN warehouse or from a manfacturers warehouse. These items will be out the door within 24-36 hours of placing the order and in some cases sooner.
In Stock - Hoists, hoist components and parts marked as "In Stock" are either kept in stock at our location or are usually in stock and available for quick shipment from the manufacturer's facility. These items usually ship within 5 business days.
Available For Order - Hoists, hoist components, crane components, and parts marked as "Available For Order" are sometimes kept in stock at our location and may be in stock at the manufacturer's facility. In some cases, these hoists, components or parts may need to be manufactured or may have some delay associated with them due to size or weight or may have special shipping restrictions. These items usually ship within 5 - 10 business days
Backordered / Ships In 4 - 6 Weeks - Items marked as "Ships in 4-6 Weeks" are primarily custom or specially built hoists or hoist components. These items are not usually manufactured until the order is placed and are rarely kept in stock. These items usually ship within 4 - 6 weeks from the date of order. If you need a better estimate of shipping date please call and we will attempt to provide current availability.
Items weighing over 150 lbs and items specified by the manufacturers’ recommendation require freight shipping in most cases. Our current preferred carrier is C. H. Robinson.
