PO BOX ADDRESSES
Please note that some products ordered on our website may be drop shipped directly to you from the manufacturer and some manufacturers will not ship to a PO Box address and require a physical address for delivery. If that is the case we will contact you. 


SHIPPING QUOTES

For orders shipped to Alaska, Hawaii, U.S. territories, and outside of the United States you will not be able to complete an online order as free shipping or the flat rate shipping amount does not apply.

You will need to contact us in order to obtain a shipping quote for the product(s) you are interested in. Please be as specific as possible as the options for the product (i.e. quantity, size, accessories) will determine the weight and dimension of the shipping package(s) and thus the cost for shipping to your desired destination.

You can obtain a shipping quote by using our convenient Shipping Quote Form, calling us at 800.443.7091 (U.S. and Canada) or 503.802.0582 (International), or e-mailing us at customercare@caremedicalsource.com. 

Our Customer Service Representatives will research the most affordable and efficient shipping method and contact you with the shipping quote. If you agree to the shipping charges they will assist you in completing your order. 

Please note the quoted shipping amount will only cover our cost to ship the item(s) to you so any customs duties and taxes that may be imposed by your country are not included in this quote and will be your responsibility. Unfortunately we cannot confirm whether or not your country will impose any customs duties or taxes or what those fees may be. We would recommend contacting your local FedEx, UPS or postal carrier to inquire about any additional fees you may be charged on a package coming from the United States.

EXCLUSIONS & NOTES

  • Exclusions to free shipping and standard rate shipping may apply for over-sized items or items that require proof of delivery. If any item in your order does not qualify for free or standard rate shipping we will contact you and inform you of the shipping cost.
  • Due to recent issues where customers did not receive their packages we are unable to ship to the following countries: Bosnia, Nigeria, Mexico and Serbia.

  • If you choose USPS Priority Mail for an international shipment and a package is lost or damaged, Care Medical Source cannot be held responsible for the replacement value.

  • Some manufacturers restrict sale of their products outside of the United States. We will notify you if you order an item that cannot be sold outside of the United States.

WHEN WILL MY ORDER ARRIVE?
Orders placed before 1 pm PST (Monday - Friday) will generally be processed the same day and stock items shipped within 24 hours. In most cases you will receive your item(s) within 3-5 business days (for orders being shipped within the contiguous United States).

Please note that some items ship from our warehouse while others ship directly to you from the manufacturer. If you order multiple items you may receive them in different packages at different times so don’t be alarmed if you do not receive all of your items at once.

Custom-built items like wheelchairs and non-stock items such as wheelchair cushions and backs must be ordered from the manufacturer. Some manufacturers will not ship items directly to you so the item will be shipped to our warehouse and then we will immediately ship the item to you.

We will notify you if there will be any significant or unexpected delay in the shipment of your item(s).

If you have any questions regarding the delivery of your item(s) please do not hesitate to contact us by calling 800.443.7091 (U.S. and Canada) or 503.802.0582 (International) or e-mailing us at customercare@caremedicalsource.com

SHIPMENT TRACKING INFORMATION
All packages will have a shipment tracking number. If you have placed your order online you will receive an e-mail once your item(s) have shipped with the carrier name and tracking number.

If items in your order are being shipped at different times (i.e. some items shipping directly from us and some items from the manufacturer) this will be noted in the e-mail you receive and you will receive updates as additional tracking information becomes available.

If you placed your order over the phone feel free to call us at 800.443.7091 (U.S. and Canada) or 503.802.0582 (International) or e-mail us at customercare@caremedicalsource.com and we will be happy to provide you with tracking information.

EXPEDITED SHIPPING
Care Medical Source offers expedited shipping (next day, second day and third day express shipping) for an additional charge. These rates will vary depending upon the destination, desired delivery date, shipping carrier, and the weight and dimensions of the package(s). Expedited shipping is available for delivery Monday - Saturday.

Please be aware that most products ship directly from the manufacturer to you so expedited shipping will shorten the time it takes for your item to arrive once it is ready to ship but will not shorten the production or processing time.

If you would like to request expedited shipping you may do so during the checkout process:

  • In the "Shipping" section (Step 2) of the checkout process please use the "Order Comments" field to indicate that you would like a quote for expedited shipping. In this section you must include the following:
    • the date and time (morning and/or by end of day) that you need the delivery

    • if you prefer delivery from a specific carrier (FedEx, UPS or USPS) - if not we will choose the carrier with the best rate

    • the method in which you would like us to contact you with the quote (phone or e-mail)

  • Once we have obtained the quote we will contact you with the cost for expedited shipping based on the information you have provided.

  • Some items are not available for expedited shipping and if that is the case we will notify you. 

SHIPPING CARRIERS
Unless a specific carrier is requested, Care Medical Source will choose the carrier, (USPS, FedEx or UPS) that offers the fastest delivery time for your shipping destination. If you would prefer a specific shipping carrier please indicate this in the "Shipping" section (Step 2) of the checkout process in the "Order Comments" field.

CHECK YOUR PACKAGE ASAP!
While we pride ourselves on always getting your order right the first time errors can occur and since many of our products are shipped to you directly from the manufacturer it is very important that you inspect your package(s) as soon as you receive them.

If you find there is an error in your order please contact us immediately at 800.443.7091 (U.S. or Canada) or 503.802.0582 (International) or e-mail us at customercare@caremedicalsource.com. Shipping errors muse be reported within 10 days of receiving your order.

FREIGHT DAMAGE
Sometimes items can be damaged during shipping. As soon as you receive your item(s) take a moment to inspect the carton or packaging. If it is obviously damaged write this down on the freight bill or carrier's registry at the time of delivery. This is important because if the damage is not adequately described the freight carrier may refuse to honor a claim. Also, make sure to open the carton or packaging as soon as possible because sometimes the package looks fine but when you open it the contents have been damaged.

If your item was damaged during shipping please call us at 800.443.7091 (U.S. or Canada) or 503.802.0582 (International) or e-mail us at customercare@caremedicalsource.com and we will be happy to help you with a replacement item and with the freight damage claim.
