Standard Shipping

Orders are shipped via UPS ground or common carrier unless otherwise noted on purchase order or at checkout. We recommend the free shipping (if applicable) or Standard shipping options whenever possible for the least environmental impact. All Vantage stocked product is FOB New Jersey.

International Shipping

Many products that have been imported in to the US cannot be exported to other countries. It is the customer’s responsibility to check with their freight forwarder to confirm foreign documentation requirements and verify that items to be exported will be released by customs at the final destination. Vantage is not responsible for clearance of our products into the country of destination. Vantage must be notified in advance on all export orders and a signed overseas shipment agreement must be on file prior to order processing. All international shipments, excluding Canada, will be assessed $31.25(v) documentation fee.
