Ordering and Shipment Information

**** Please Note: Due to supply chain constraints some items may have longer lead times than expected - extending beyond our standard order processing times. To ensure authentic, brand new items, Server Racks Online orders directly from the manufacturer to drop ship directly to you. Because we have direct relationships with the manufacturer, your back ordered items will be produced and shipped out As-Soon-As-Possible. In the event of a backordered product, our Customer Service team will reach out informing you of the expected lead time and confirm your desire to proceed. Because manufacturers do not always process the order the same day, we may be delayed in getting back with you with this information.

If this is a time sensitive order, please check availability before placing your order. In some cases we may be able to offer a quicker shipping alternative.

In an effort to provide the best level of customer service possible, we will do everything we can to maintain current order status as well as lead time and availability updates. If you have additional questions regarding your order, please email

  • All orders received before 12 p.m. Mountain Time will be processed the same day, this does not guarantee the order will be shipped the same day.
  • Orders received after 12 pm. Mountain Time will be processed the same day but probably will not be shipped until the next business day.
  • Your credit card will be authorized at the time of order placement and will be charged as soon as your order has been processed.
  • Complete shipping information is required for orders to be processed.
  • A $5 handling fee will be including in the shipping charge for all orders of $30 or less.

  • Shipping Information

    Shipping Carriers
    Server Racks Online ships orders using various carriers. Carriers are selected based on region. Standard shipping applies to the 48 contiguous states. Additional charges apply for orders shipped to Hawaii or Alaska and may also apply for special shipping needs and/or expedited orders.

    Shipping Address
    When you provide a shipping address, please provide the valid physical address where the cabinet will be delivered. Also, please include a phone number where you can be reached during the day if there is a delivery problem.
    Please note Server Racks Online cannot ship orders to personal residences unless the residence is the same address as the credit card company has noted on file as the credit cards billing address. Server Racks Online does not ship to hotels or freight forwarding companies.

    Estimate of Shipping Charges
    All shipping prices are our best estimates. If the actual shipping charge is significantly greater than the estimated shipping cost, we will increase the shipping charge and contact you before processing your order. If you do not respond, we can not process the order. In some cases we do not know the exact shipping charge amount until after the order has been processed, when this occurs the customer will be contacted for payment of the remaining shipping charges as the customer is responsible for all charges.  Prices may vary based on delivery conditions and fuel surcharges. In addition, we cannot guarantee that all trucking companies will adhere to their quoted delivery schedules.

    Available Delivery Options
    Dock to Dock: Choose “Dock to Dock” if there is a receiving area at the destination location with a “dock high” area that a freight truck can back up to and unload the server cabinet. After the driver unloads the server rack onto the dock area, you or your designated shipping staff must then move the rack to its final location.

    No Loading Dock: Select this method if there is not a “dock high” area at the delivery destination. In this case, the delivery truck will be equipped with a lift gate to lower your server rack to the ground. Once it is on the ground, it is then your responsibility to take it into your building. There is an extra charge for the “No Loading Dock” service.

    Inside Delivery: The truck driver will deliver the server rack to a place of your choice on the first floor. There is an extra charge for this service. If you would like inside delivery, please call 1-866-722-5776 for a quote.

    Please note: All server racks are shipped via “Ground” delivery.

    Other Shipping Policies

    We ship all orders “FOB Origin” as well as “prepay freight and add.”

    FOB Origin
    “FOB Origin” means you own the merchandise while it is in transit. If there are any damage claims, you as the buyer, file against the trucking company and will receive compensation directly from the trucking company. This is our policy because we are not onsite at the time of delivery to personally inspect and accept the shipment. We encourage you to inspect the shipment thoroughly prior to accepting it. Please see the Damages section for more details.

    Prepay Freight and Add
    “Prepay Freight and Add” means we pay the freight charges and add them to the invoice.

    All damage claims must be made when the product is delivered. It is your responsibility to check for damaged merchandise before the truck driver leaves. In the case of a damaged shipment, mark all shipping documents as “damaged in transit” and include a description of the damage. Notify the trucking company immediately and save the packaging until the claim is complete. A damage claim will be denied if the packaging is discarded and the damage is concealed. The trucking company is not liable for transit damage unless notified within 48 hours from receipt of merchandise. Call us at 1-866-722-5776 for carrier contact numbers or if you would like assistance in talking with a freight company. Pictures may be required to process the damage claim. Final settlement of the claim is between you and the freight company.
