This is a Special order item and will be Shipped from the manufacture via Truck Freight to the lower 48 states only, and additional shipping charges will apply (sorry no air or boat/ship service)

Most Truck Freight items have two standardized shipping rates, one rate to the terminal, another to your door - not avalible in all locations. If "To your door" service is avalible, additional fees apply for lift gate service, to avoid this you can choose "Terminal pickup".

All shipments are made via common carrier FOB Kearney, NE. Blueprint Engines and Northern Auto parts are not liable for damage that your container or engines may receive while in transit. When any damage is apparent, you must make a claim to the delivering carrier. If a freight claim is filed, Blueprint engines will work with the appropriate carrier to make repairs or replacements within the carrier's claim guidelines.

Required Options:
*Truck Freight:
Minimum estimated Truck Freight shipping charge to be billed. add $44.00
*Delivery Type:
Terminal pickup - You will pick up your engine at the freight carriers dock
If you want us to find out if a To your door service is available, the minimum estimated amount for this service is this additional amount (your location may be more than this) $60.00
