Shipping Information and Policies:

We offer FREE SHIPPING on all standard, non-oversized orders over $99 to the contiguous United States! For more info on Oversized Orders, please see below.

We ship primarily with the US Postal Service (USPS) for smaller sized packages and will generally use UPS and sometimes FedEx for medium and large packages.

Some oversized items which exceed standard carrier size limitations (i.e. kayaks, rigid SUPs, larger rafts, and other items over 107" length, 165" girth or 150lbs) can only be shipped via motor freight. See Addtional Shipping Info section below for more info

P.O. Box addresses must ship United States Postal Service (USPS). If you CANNOT receive USPS shipments at your address, please enter a note at checkout that says you require UPS or FedEx shipping! 

Most economy and oversized orders will have a 1-2 day handling time. Express shipments will ship same or next day after 1pm MST, but please call us if you have a strict deadline

Shipping to Alaksa and Hawaii often incur additional fees based on weight, dimensions and exact location. We will contact you with any additional fees as quickly as possible. See the associated tab in the Additional Shipping Info section below for more info. 

Additional Shipping Info

Oversized Shipping

Any item listed with "Oversized Shipping" will ship via Economy shipping at the flat rate listed on the item page.

*Please contact us for a quote on Express Shipping on oversized items. We currently do not have a way to accurately list rates for expedited oversized items. Customer will need to pay for additional shipping fees before the item ships out for any Oversized Express service.*

Please see Alaksa / Hawaii tab if you for more info on shipping to those states, or any of the US territories or military bases.

Freight Shipping for Kayaks & Other Large Items

Regional Freight:

**We can often get LOWER RATES than what is listed if you're in Colorado, New Mexico, or parts of Arizona, Utah, and Southern Idaho. Contact us for a quote.**

Motor Freight:


We try our best to avoid any additional shipping charges above what is listed on the product page, but in some cases it is necessary. This is often true in the case of On Sale, Used & Consignment Items.

Let's be honest, we're kinda in the middle of nowhere from a freight shipping perspective, so we can't compete with some of the rates offered by big box stores and online mega vendors, especially if you're East of the Mississippi. We will contact you with any additional totals before shipping.

*Due to our dealer agreements, certain brands such as, but not limited to, Jackson Kayaks, Wilderness Systems Kayaks and Hobie Kayaks must meet the minimum advertised shipping price.

Freight Terminal Pickup / Commercial Address Delivery:

*Freight Rates Listed are for shipments delivered and held for pickup at a nearby freight terminal, or delivery to a registered commercial address.*

In order to keep our rates as competitive as possible, all kayaks, canoes, rigid paddle boards and some larger rafts / frames / and SquareTop Oars will be delivered to a nearby freight terminal for you to pick up. We can also ship to a certified commercial business address for the same cost. Please provide the business name and address as your shipping address at checkout. Residential delivery may be possible for an additional fee (contact us for more info). We do our best to find freight terminals that are no more than 45 miles from the address you provide on your order. We will contact you with all details before shipment on any freight order. 

Please be prepared at delivery / pickup to photograph any damage BEFORE signing any paperwork! You will need to fully unwrap and inspect the package before you sign any paperwork or leave the facility. Once you take delivery, we have no recourse for damage reimbursement if it has not been documented on said freight company paperwork. Please call us immediately upon discover of damage so we can initiate a freight damage claim. There is almost zero freight company liability for damage on any USED ITEMS without adding additional insurance coverage. Contact us with any questions or for more info. 

Alaska, Hawaii, & US Territories

Standard Shipping

We reserve the right to charge exact shipping rates above the listed rate to to Alaska, Hawaii or any US Territory. We do our best to advertise accurate rates to these areas, but sometimes the price is more than we can cover and still remain profitable. We will call you before shipment to collect any additional shipping fees.

Oversized & Express Shipping

Customers in these states / territories will be charged the standard Lower 48 oversized rate listed on the product page, plus 25%, automatically at checkout. We will contact you for any additional amounts above that calculated rate.

Please contact us before placing your order if you would like an exact quote, or need express shipping of any sort, oversized or not.

Hardshell Kayak & Rigid SUPs

We unfortunately do not ship hardshell kayaks or rigid SUPs outside of the Lower 48.

Hazardous Materials & Extremely Fragile Items

We DO NOT ship any hazardous materials (adhesives, epoxies, resins, paints, solvents, etc.) via standard shipping methods at this time*. You can purchase them online for Local Pickup Only.

*We can use a small regional carrier for regional shipments within Colorado on these items for larger orders (i.e. not just a can or two of glue). Exact shipping will be charged on these orders.*

We also refuse to ship extremely fragile items such as (but not limited to) Hurricane Kayaks or any thermoform / fiberglass / carbon boats or boards due to their fragile nature. These boats / boards are also set for Local Pickup Only.

Local Pickup

We offer local pickup for any order at our Durango, CO location. Simply select the Local Pickup shipping option at checkout. Local Durango sales tax rates will be automatically charged on all pickup orders.

There are certain items that we only offer for Local Pickup. See Hazardous Materials & Extremely Fragile Items tab above for more info.

International Shipping

We do not ship internationally at this time, however you are welcome to use a Freight Forwarding Service of your choosing as long as their terminal address is within the contiguous United States. Our payment system usually does not accept non-US credit cards, so please use one of our 3rd party payment options, or have your freight forwarder provide you with a US based card number.

The buyer is responsible for any and all communication with the freight forwarding company outside of basic info like tracking or BOLs.

Return / Exchange Shipping

Buyers are responsible for shipping fees on returns and exchanges, unless it was an error on our part. We can provide return shipping labels for you, but you will be required to pay the exact rate (which is often less than what you would pay directly because of our shipping volume). Exchanges will be responsible for shipping both directions on most items. Contact us for a Return Authorization number and to pay for any associated shipping costs.

If you want to provide your own return label, please repackage your item in the same manner it came, include a copy of your invoice and contact info, and address your return to:

  • 4CRS Returns
  • 360 S. Camino Del Rio, Suite 100
  • Durango, CO 81301

We will refund or exchange your item as soon as it is received.
