Shipping & Handling
FORMUFIT Shipping Policy
Strategically located in the center of the United States, FORMUFIT is positioned within a 2-4 business days transit time for most popular Ground services.
We can ship to virtually any address in the US, and to many countries in the world. Note that there are restrictions on some products, and some products cannot be shipped to international destinations, such as longer lengths of PVC pipe. Please review our shipping options and policies and plan your purchases accordingly.
How long until my order ships?
Stock orders will be shipped in standard shipping times which are normally:
- One to two business days for PVC fittings and accessories only.
- Three to four business days for any order that contains PVC pipe.
Standard shipping times are not guarantees or promises that a product will ship on a specific day. Certain situations, such as availability of stock, observed US holidays, incorrect addressing and shipping restrictions may delay your order. All shipping timeframes are provided in business days, and do not include weekends or holidays.

Expedited Services cannot be shipped to P.O. Boxes, and must be shipped to a physical address. Expedited orders that do not identify a physical address may be cancelled.
Please NoteUSPS Priority Mail is not an expedited, nor a guaranteed on-time service, but is much more efficient than standard post. If you require products quickly, and on time, we recommend one of the expedited services listed above, rather than Priority Mail.
Please note that the shipping rates for many items we sell are dimensional-weight based. This means dense or long items, such as PVC pipe over 48-inches in length may incur additional carrier fees for oversized shipments. FedEx and UPS also have additional surcharges that are also included for residential deliveries.
FORMUFIT reserves the right to change or choose the shipping carrier, should the order require it due to quantity, cost of services or in cases where PVC pipe shipment is inhibited. In these cases, should you choose a specific carrier for your initial shipment and we modify your order to an another carrier, you will not incur additional charges.
Delivery & Service Delays
Shipment dates are estimates in accordance with our carriers. If you live in an area experiencing an unexpected service delay (i.e. severe weather, natural disasters, unscheduled events, etc.), please note there may be additional shipping time to receive your order.
Tracking Your Package
If you have provided your email address we will send you a ship confirmation email when your order ships. For all orders this email will include a tracking number which you can use to track your package on the appropriate shipping carrier’s website.
Please see our International Orders page for more information on pipe size conversions and shipping.
You may use our standard checkout and select your international shipping options upon checkout. We use the United States Postal Service and UPS/FedEx for International shipping. Not all options are available for every country.
Please note that for all international orders, customs taxes and duties will be added to UPS and FedEx shipments at the delivery destination. These will be collected by the carrier upon delivery and are separate from any shipping charges in your order. US Postal Service options do not charge additional duties or taxes.
