Frequently Asked Questions
SHIPPING & DELIVERY
What is Cost Saver?
Cost Saver is a lower cost shipping option for select parcel items. Please note that transit time is longer than normal ground shipping (see chart above). Final delivery will be made via USPS.
Why can’t I see tracking information on Cost Saver?
• The first package scan may be upon arrival at a regional hub near the destination. (This is common when shipping volume is high and packages are processed in bulk.)
• Tracking of Cost Saver packages may not be as detailed as regular ground parcel packages.
Which shipping carriers do you use?
The Home Depot utilizes UPS & USPS for small packages and Home Delivery carriers for larger packages.
May I choose my shipping carrier?
Customers may choose how they would like their order delivered between standard and expedited delivery on select parcel items. The Home Depot does not allow customers to select a specific carrier for delivery; however, The Home Depot will choose the best shipping carrier available for your needs based on location, items, etc.
Who do I call if my merchandise arrives broken or damaged from the carrier?
If you receive your order and it is damaged by the delivery company, please call 1-800-430-3376 within 3 days to report any damages seven days a week between 7:00 A.M. – 1:00 A.M. EST. If possible, refuse delivery of the broken or damaged items.
Major appliances are non-returnable. Items should be inspected thoroughly at the time of delivery. If you are not satisfied, refuse the item before signing the delivery receipt. Be sure to report any product defects or damages with the delivery agent. Please call 1-800-455-3869 to report damages or other delivery issues. Damages must be reported within 48 hours of delivery.

• Packages weigh more than 150 lbs.
• Package size is greater than 108 inches in length
• Package size is greater than 165 inches in length and girth
If Home Delivery is an option for your item, three levels of Home Delivery service are usually offered:

How do I check my order status?
To check the status of your order online, please visit The Home Depot order status page at http://www.homedepot.com/customersupport. Please enter your order confirmation number and email address in the space provided.
Can I ship to Alaska, Hawaii, U.S. Territories or APO/FPO/DPO?
You may ship select Home Depot.com products to any of these locations:
• Continental U.S.
• Alaska & Hawaii (Varies by product. Remote surcharges may apply.)
Total delivery timeline for Alaska and Hawaii orders may take an additional 2-5 business days.
We are not able to ship to international destinations or APO/FPO/DPO destinations at this time.
Does homedepot.com ship outside of the 48 contiguous United States?
Yes, homedepot.com offers a limited selection of its products for shipment to Alaska and Hawaii. Remote surcharges may apply.
Is Expedited shipping available on all products?
Expedited shipping is only available on those products that can be air shipped in accordance with UPS shipping requirements and Federal Regulations. Products exceeding the weight, girth measurements and products falling under the hazardous materials (hazmat) guidelines for dangerous chemicals cannot be expedited. Home Delivery products cannot be expedited. Products on the homedepot.com site that cannot be expedited are duly noted on the product information page.
Why do Express (or Expedited) deliveries sometimes take longer than the designated time period of one (or two) day(s) to arrive from date of shipping?
Express orders are delivered the day after they are shipped out to you. Expedited orders are delivered two days after the day they are shipped out to you. An order may not always ship on the same day that it is placed. Placing your order late in the day, after the shipping companies have picked up their last shipment of the day, is one factor that may affect overall shipping time. Some orders (i.e. due to size, availability of item, etc.) may also require a longer time to pack and ship than others. As a general rule, Express orders may take 1-2 days to arrive and Expedited orders may be expected within 2-3 days.
What is a “Shipping Address Nickname”?
When placing an order online, we ask for your shipping address. Each time you check out, you may enter a new address and that address will be stored in our records for your account. Assigning a "nickname" to each address is a way to help you easily identify which address you want to use each time you place an order. Examples of shipping address nicknames are "home", "office", "school", etc.
What is “Depot Direct Delivery”?
Depot Direct Delivery is the delivery method for major appliances. Major appliances include GE, LG, Maytag, Amana, Admiral, Hotpoint, and Americana kitchen and laundry appliances.
