Shipping Information


We have thousands of items that ship free within the continental United States. To find our free shipping items, it will say FREE SHIPPING on the product page. When you add the item to your shopping cart, you’ll see that free shipping is added for that product when checking out.

Free shipping is not valid on expedited shipping orders.


We primarily ship within the continental United States; because of that, all shipping rates quoted on Chef& are currently for contiguous U.S. shipments. For customers requesting shipment to Hawaii or Alaska, we will still quote contiguous U.S. rates, but will contact you once the order has been placed to provide an updated shipping quote before the order is processed.

For orders shipping internationally, we have partnered with a trusted third-party company, International Checkout, to fulfill orders for our international customers. Your items will be transferred to International Checkout for processing. You may pay by credit card, PayPal, or bank transfer. International Checkout will process your order, including billing, shipping, and customer service. Once your order is completed, all inquiries should be directed. International Checkout will ship to any destination around the world, including APO / FPO addresses.

Shipments that are too large and/or heavy for regular UPS package must ship by truck (LTL). This type of shipment can vary from a regular package delivery. Please take the time to read about the various choices and select the one you need:

·         Liftgate - Add liftgate service if you do not have a dock designed to receive freight. The driver will use the liftgate to lower your item down from the truck. If you do not have a dock and do not choose liftgate service, you will be responsible for having enough people present to lower your item down from the truck. Keep in mind that truck orders always weigh 150lbs or more and the driver is not responsible for helping to offload the order.

·         Call Prior To Delivery – Choose this option if you would like the truck driver to call you prior to delivering your item. This option is helpful to make sure you or your staff will be available to receive and inspect your order. Take note that this option is not used for scheduling a delivery appointment; rather, the driver will specify the time he is coming to deliver.

·         Residential / Limited Access – You must choose this option of your shipment is being delivered to a home, private residence or a difficult to reach location. Residential and limited access customers fall under the following categories:

o    Private Residences

o    Home Businesses

o    Apartment Complexes

o    Storage Units

o    Dormitories

o    Construction Sites

o    Churches & Schools

o    Fairs or Carnivals

o    Prisons and Military Bases

o    Mine Sites

o    Certain Downtown Locations

o    Farms and Ranches

o    Other Commercial Establishments That are Not Open to Walk-In Public During Business Hours

Please take note of the following:

·         Someone must be present to receive, inspect and sign for the delivery. Unlike standard package deliveries, the driver will not leave your item for you if you are not there.

·         It is very important that you inspect your package carefully while the driver is still present. If there is any damage or signs of damage please contact us immediately and DO NOT accept or sign for your delivery. Once you sign for a shipment, you will be responsible for filing any damage claim within 7 days.

·         The truck driver is not responsible for offloading your shipment. If you do not have a proper loading dock we recommend choosing the lift-gate option. It is also important you have help at your location to unload and move your item.

·         Trucking companies are set up to deliver shipments to commercial addresses. Please read the residential or limited access options carefully to make sure you do not fall into one of these categories. If you do it would be best to see if you can have your shipment sent to a workplace or other commercial address to avoid additional charges. If you still need to have your shipment delivered to a residential or limited access address you MUST select that option before checkout. If you do not and the trucking company determines you fall into one of those categories you will be charged the additional cost after your shipment is delivered. If you are unsure about your delivery location in any way please contact us at
