We can ship boxed product up to 108” in length or up to 150 lbs.  There can be additional over length charges if the package is over 100” in length, but it can still ship with UPS.  Ask a Customer Service Representative for more details or a shipping quote.

Orders normally ship within 3-4 business days depending on the size of the order.  Customizations or larger orders can take longer.  We do offer Truck Down services to expedite processing and ship times.  Ask a Customer Service Representative for more details.

For Front to Back Flip Tarps, the general rule is to add 2 feet to the length being covered and subtract 4 inches from the distance between the mounting plates.  Depending on the mounting location of the Tarp Spool, additional length may be required as well as other customizations.  Please see the above Tarp Drawings for additional guidelines or reach out to a Customer Service Representative for additional assistance.
