Growco Indoor Garden Supply Shipping Policies
"FREE SHIPPING on orders totaling $250 or more
when delivered within lower continental USA"

policy that are necessary so we won't go broke. Items that fall into
this category have a bold statement on their page so you know shipping
charges are going to apply.
1. Heavyweight items: If an item (such as a
the larger grow tents, multiple bags of heavier growing media or air
conditioners) weighs more than 70 pounds, it cannot be shipped via
UPS or FedEx. It must be truck shipped and generates a shipping
charge. We do call around for the best shipping price and contact
you for approval before we complete your order.
2. Oversized items: UPS and FedEx limits the
size of the package they will handle under normal shipping rates.
Any oversized item (such as an AeroFlo hydro system, large
flood tables or the extra-large reflectors) generates additional shipping costs that
will be added to the order. We will contact you with the most cost
effective option available to get your approval before we complete

products on our website! We've been doing this for a long time, and
we're good at it. We have a 16,000 sf warehouse, fully stocked with
every item on our website. This benefits you, our customer in many
ways. First, it helps to prevent items from running out of stock. By
keeping our warehouse filled with all of our products, it gives us
time to avoid running out of anything. It also guarantees your
privacy with us as we won't share your information with anybody
else. But, the bottom line is that it allows us to ship your
order out without any delays. Our goal is to ship your order on
the day it's received, or the next normal business day. No messing
around here! Our focus it to get your order to you, safely packed,
and shipped fast, without compromising your privacy in any way!

insulated heat retaining material, and in extreme cases, we'll
include a "Hot Hands Body Warmer" pack with the nutrients to further
guard against freezing. We do this automatically, without any added
cost to you. This is just one more way that Growco takes care of our
