Free Shipping to the Contiguous 48

Every UPLIFT Desk order ships for free to commercial and residential locations in the contiguous 48 United States. Don’t worry, Alaska and Hawaii; we can ship to you at a steep discount! We also discount shipping for orders to Canada, and international orders.

Most orders ship out the same or next business day. Product pages will list the lead time near the price. Lead time added by individual options will be displayed next to the option. Custom or back-ordered items will take longer depending on the item. Please allow additional processing and shipping time for holidays.

Most orders will ship FedEx Ground. Tracking information will be emailed to the email address associated with your order as soon as any item has shipped. Our FedEx ground shipments do not require a signature for delivery.

Some orders, including custom or oversize desktops, will ship via freight carrier. Don’t worry, freight shipping is still free! If this applies to your order and are not familiar with freight, we’ll walk you through it and make it as easy as possible.

Standard free freight shipping includes loading dock or curbside service; you will be in charge of bringing the individually boxed items inside. You can read more about what to expect when receiving a freight delivery on our Freight Shipping 101 page.

Very small items may ship via USPS. You will be notified if this applies to your order.

Need it Faster?

We know you don't like to wait. That's why we offer Expedited Shipping and Expedited Production options for most items.

Shipping to Austin, TX? Your order could possibly be delivered free by our own staff, if that means that we can get it to you faster than any other service.

Installation?

We’ve got you covered—our white glove service agents are standing by for Room of Choice Installation.

Discounted Expedited Shipping

While free shipping comes standard with any domestic order, if you need your items faster than free can provide, you have the option to upgrade to paid shipping options. Next-Day and other expedited shipping methods are available on all applicable orders during checkout. Please note that this will not affect the order processing time listed on top of each product's page, only the amount of time the order spends in transit.

Available Discounted Expedited Shipping options are shown in your shopping cart. Pricing is based on the items selected and the location you're shipping to. We don't mark up our Expedited Shipping like other companies; in fact, we discount our Expedited Shipping below cost.

Why would anyone do that? Because we know you’ll love our products, and the sooner you get them, the happier you will be.

Items that must be shipped via freight carrier do not display expedited shipping options. However, if your order needs to be shipped freight and you need it faster, please contact us to see what we can do.

Expedited Production

To cut down on processing time and get your order even faster, you can also upgrade to Expedited Production on most products. Please see individual listings for more information on the expedited timeline and cost for Expedited Production of any specific item.

Choosing Expedited Production puts your order first in line to be prepared for shipment. Please note that this will not make any custom or back-ordered item available any faster. For the most up-to-date estimate of when your order will ship, consult your shopping cart.

Discounted Shipping to Alaska or Hawaii

Having an ocean or another country in between us presents unique shipping challenges, but even though we can’t offer free shipping to Alaska and Hawaii, we cover the same dollar amount in shipping costs to you as we do for our customers in the contiguous US.

To save even more on shipping costs associated with buying a full desk, the most cost-effective option is to purchase an UPLIFT Desk frame only and obtain a desktop from a local vendor, recycle an older desktop, or build your own!

Discounted Shipping to Canada

To our Canadian neighbors, we’ve heard what you've been saying about the problems you've encountered shopping online from American businesses and we're working diligently to make shopping on our site easier and more affordable for you. That's why we discount your shipping cost by the same amount that we normally cover for our contiguous US customers who receive free shipping.

Additionally, for UPLIFT Desk products shipping FedEx Ground, you will see the total shipping, tax, duties, and brokerage costs associated with your order at checkout, so there are no surprise fees to pay before you can receive shipment.

There are no extra wait times, either! We ship to Canada every business day, the same as in the United States, and we will provide tracking information as soon as it’s available.

Your order will ship via FedEx Ground to Canada by default, but expedited options are available upon request. Contact 512-614-3152 or 800-349-3839, or email us at info@upliftdesk.com

If your order requires freight delivery or if your order contains third-party items, we will contact you if there are any additional costs, questions, or instructions concerning delivery. However, we will still discount your shipping cost by the amount covered under our contiguous US free shipping.

To save further on shipping costs associated with buying a full desk, the most cost-effective option is to purchase a UPLIFT Desk frame only and obtain a desktop from a local vendor, recycle an older desktop, or build your own!

Desk orders too large for FedEx will ship freight with a trucking company. Unlike FedEx, freight companies do not provide customs clearance, and in this case we will contact you to determine your preferred customs broker for clearing your goods into Canada from the US. If you do not have a customs broker account, we recommend Pacific Customs Brokers for our customers. Freight orders cannot ship without a customs broker being selected.

To save on shipping costs on your desk, frame, or accessory order, if you are local to the US-Canadian border, you may wish to use a border mail service like Kinek, which reduces shipping and brokerage fees by shipping the desk to the border for you to pick up. This method allows you to take advantage of free shipping to the contiguous 48 United States.

Military Post Offices

Military Post Offices (such as an APO, FPO, or DPO) will be sent a quote for shipping. Please call us at 512-614-3152 or 800-349-3839, email us at info@upliftdesk.com, or use our contact form to get a shipping quote and place your order.

International Shipping

For international customers, we recommend using a Freight Forwarder located in the US in order to take advantage of our free shipping offer and avoid some or all of the hurdles explained below. If you choose this option, you are responsible for making arrangements with the freight forwarder.

If you prefer not to use a freight forwarder, we offer direct international shipping for orders of UPLIFT Desk products totalling $2,000 or greater (excluding desktops).

Without the use of a freight forwarder, we do not ship desktops outside of the US or Canada, but you can still get your standing desk by purchasing an UPLIFT Desk frame only and obtaining a desktop from a local vendor, recycling an older desktop, or building your own!

We give you the best international shipping rate we can on a case-by-case basis. You may call us at 512-614-3152 or 800-349-3839, or email us at info@upliftdesk.com, or use our contact form to get a shipping quote and place your order. If you prefer to order online, we will contact you with shipping information and costs after the order is placed.

Please note that we may require a wire transfer for payment, and that our warranty does not include the cost of international shipping. If you need to make a warranty claim, we will need to collect funds for shipping costs, regardless of whether or not a freight forwarder was used.

If your home country does not use 120 volt power, you will need to plug your desktop into a step-down transformer to reduce the risk of overloading your desk's control box. Overloading of the control box is not covered by warranty. If you have any questions, please contact our support team at 512-614-3152 or 800-349-3839, or email us at info@upliftdesk.com.

Direct international orders (those not using a freight forwarder) are shipped via FedEx and customers are responsible for paying for all costs, customs clearance, and fees upfront. This will help ensure a speedy delivery and that your order does not get held up at customs.
