Shipping Policy

Shipping Methods

Free UPS Shipping

Oneida offers free shipping on most ductwork orders over $300.00 for products that can be shipped by UPS ground and that are shipping within the 48 continental United States. Dust collection systems, other non-ductwork orders, Nordfab ductwork, and spiral pipe are not included in the free shipping offer.

Flat Rate UPS

Most orders under $300 are subject to a flat rate shipping fee via UPS Ground within the 48 continental United States. Alaska and Hawaii will in most cases require additional cost.

Special Handling

Some systems, Dust Deputy items, and other products have fixed shipping and handling charges applied instead of or in addition to our basic shipping charges. Charges are noted on each product page.

Truck Freight

Some products will require additional shipping / freight charges to be calculated by our office. These are usually large / oversized items and items that sometimes ship by common carrier. Orders containing these types of items will require a separate freight charge that will be calculated and explained to you after you submit your order. Some shipping charges may be on a separate charge from the original order.

International Shipping

International orders require shipping and handling charges dependent on the destination country. Oneida Air Systems [OAS] shipping and handling does not include any broker fees, customs fees, or taxes imposed on shipments entering the destination country, nor is OAS liable for payment of them.

PLEASE NOTE: All orders shipping outside the continental US cannot be placed through our online service. Please call 800-732-4065 or 315-476-5151 and ask to speak to a Technical Service Representative.


Delivery Risk of Loss

Products will be shipped to Buyer's single destination. Title and risk of loss shall pass to the Buyer upon delivery to such destination. Buyer pays transportation expenses.

We make every effort to ship your product in a timely manner, however sometimes delays and back-orders are inevitable. Expected shipment dates are advisory only. Oneida will not be held responsible or liable for these conditions or the way they may effect your production. You can trust that your order will be quickly processed and safely delivered. Our shipping charges and methods are determined by the type of product ordered, dimension and weight, and destination. Some products cannot be shipped to international or extremely remote destinations, so please submit a message to us from the Contact Us page if you would like to discuss other ordering options.

Back-orders will be shipped when they are available. When orders are shipped UPS, UPS will notify you by e-mail. If shipped by Common Carrier, you can arrange for the trucking company to notify you and make arrangements for delivery. Shipping method is determined by Oneida Air Systems and is dependent upon material to be shipped and destination.

Our prices are FOB Syracuse, New York. FOB stands for "free on board". This means that shipping is not included in the prices. This means that we are responsible for putting the freight on the truck. The charges associated with moving the merchandise to the destination are paid for by the customer. We do business with many shipping and freight companies on a frequent basis and are able to negotiate discounts that many customers would not be able to receive. We are happy to pass on these discounts to our customers, and do so by charging for the freight up front resulting in your order being shipped prepaid. Your sales representative will provide you with the best possible shipping quote and indicate whether it ships UPS or truck freight (common carrier.)


Freight Shipments

Any of our systems that are 3 hp or larger will require delivery by truck freight (common carrier). A regulation truck drivers are subject to is that they are not required to give assistance unloading. Please be prepared for this, as you are responsible for unloading the items. If needed, a lift gate service is often available at an additional cost. Your location must also be tractor-trailer accessible. You may also arrange to pickup your freight at the terminal if this is more convenient for you or if you are concerned about additional freight costs. Make sure your vehicle is capable of handling the weight and volume and also bring along additional help with loading and unloading.

Business Delivery

If the system is being delivered to a business, you should have a loading dock and pallet jack available to unload the freight. If this is not available at your business please indicate this to your sales representative so that these services are included when your system is delivered.

Residential Businesses/Residential Customers

Please notify your sales representative whether services such as lift gate, and/or residential delivery appointments are required so that they can be included when your system is delivered.

When you take delivery of an Oneida dust collector you can be assured that there will not be any additional freight/shipping charges added on to your order after the payment/order process is completed. This means the freight company will make no additional demands for payment while attempting to deliver your system which has happened with some of our competitors. Some of these extras are lift gate fees, and residential delivery fees. If at anytime you have any questions regarding your order or the freight cost please contact your sales representative - 800-732-4065.

Non-Freight Orders - Most Ductwork and Small Systems

We ship non-freight orders via ground transportation service, normally UPS but we reserve the right to use other carriers. We have developed standard shipping costs for the continental US, and these charges will be added to your order. We do offer free shipping on ductwork orders over $300 in the continental US, with some restrictions. These items are noted in our price sheet.
