All purchases over $50.00 dollars automatically qualify for FREE shipping within the contiguous United States to non-restricted locations*. For standard parcel shipments, we use UPS or USPS Priority.
Over size shipments (exceeding a certain length or weight) will be shipped via freight carrier. This will usually apply to countertops, islands or butcher blocks. Freight deliveries will be curbside unless otherwise stated.
Orders under $50.00 will be charged a flat $4.99 shipping fee.
We ship to Canada and international! Our checkout cart provides an immediate shipping quote for Canadian customers, but read below for more information.
Shipping and Transit Time
ChoppingBlocks.com ships out of both a West coast and East coast warehouse, in addition to shipping directly from some of our manufacturers.
For small parcel packages, such as cutting boards or chopping blocks, transit time is usually 2 to 5 business days.
Larger products (countertops, kitchen carts, kitchen islands) are filled by our vendors directly, as these items are usually made to order. The lead times on these items are as follows:
- Kitchen Islands, Tables and Carts: 2 to 4 weeks
- Countertops: 2 to 4 weeks
- Butcher Blocks: 2 to 4 Weeks
- Back Ordered Chopping Blocks & Boards: 1 to 2 Weeks
- Specific large items are considered "Quick Ship" and will be available sooner
Note that these are business day estimates and lead times may be extended during the holidays.
Our automated systems will send out an email immediately with your shipping carrier and tracking information once your order ships.
Freight Shipping Information
Over sized items or products over 130 pounds (and some items below 130 lbs) will be delivered via freight truck directly to your home or business. Freight deliveries will go directly to your home or business and will require someone to be present to accept the delivery. We always notify the freight carrier contact you beforehand to schedule a day and time for delivery.
As an complimentary service, we always request a lift gate service for any order where any one item weights over 130 lbs. A lift gate is a powered lift at the back of the delivery truck that can raise and lower goods to in and out of the truck. This ensures that you are not required to lift items out the back of a delivery truck, which can be very heavy and unsafe.
Be aware that most of our competitors do not provide lift gate services by default and will either charge extra for the service or simply deliver your order without a lift gate.
If you would like to schedule a lift gate for your delivery for a lighter load, we would be happy to do so as well, for an added fee of $50. Please call us to to schedule this service.
Please note that all freight deliveries are "curbside", which means that the delivery truck will unload the shipment as the nearest curb adjacent to your home or business. In most cases, this means the front or end of your driveway. It will be your responsibility to transport the shipment indoors, so we highly recommend having a hand truck, dolly or extra set of hands during the delivery.

Canada and International Shipping
We are happy to ship to Canada and have discounted carrier rates with DHL Express for parcel shipments into Canada. Larger and heavier shipments will be shipped by freight into Canada. Use our checkout directly to get rates for Canadian shipping costs. Please note our rate calculator is based on non-remote locations and we may be required to add a shipping surcharge if you require delivery to a restricted* area.
For other international shipments to the UK, Australia or anywhere else, we are happy to use DHL Express as our parcel shipping partner and can deliver within 2 to 3 business days for most of the world. Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org for a rate quote.
Please note that we do not offer refunds or exchanges on international shipments. In the event that a product is damaged during shipping, we will send a replacement product. For defective products, we will arrange for a replacement, but shipping costs will be the responsibility of the customer.
All customs, VAT or duties will be the responsibility of the customer. In the event that duties are not paid and the shipment is not released, ChoppingBlocks.com will not refund purchase payments.
Your kitchen island or cart will come with assembly instructions. Most John Boos equipment can be assembled in 1 to 2 hours, assuming you have two people. We are happy to provide instructions for assembly of your kitchen island or cart prior to delivery. If you require assistance with assembly, we recommend contacting a local furniture installer or handyman. Unfortunately, we cannot recommend any specific installers because we have found it difficult to recommend a national installer that provides a consistent level of service.
*Restricted locations are defined as remote, land locked or difficult to access locations. UPS and freight delivery trucks require turn around space and will not be able to fit in tight alleys, drives and are prohibited from driving on dirt or gravel roads for delivery. In the event that you require delivery to restricted area, our free shipping promotion will not apply and surcharges may added to the shipping cost.
