Due to a well above average volume of orders, we (and everyone else in the industry) are experiencing, shipping times will most likely be delayed, both in processing and in transit. We are trying our best to process and ship orders as quickly as possible, but expect a 1-2 day delay in order processing. Shipping and freight transit times are also taking longer than normal. Special orders are also taking much longer than usual. Please bear with us as we navigate these difficult times.
FREE SHIPPING! on orders over $50*
We’re proud to offer free shipping on NON-OVERSIZED orders totaling over $50. Orders shipped through our Economy Shipping option may ship via USPS, FedEx or UPS Ground.

Kayak and Canoe Shipping
Standard Kayak Shipping
Shipping kayaks is a difficult and expensive process. While we strive to keep our shipping costs as low as possible, there are some circumstances that are out of our control.
*ALL KAYAKS MAY BE SUBJECT TO ADDITIONAL SHIPPING CHARGES.*
We do our best to find the most affordable option, but due to the oversize and fragile nature of kayaks, freight shipping can be difficult to sort out when it comes to locations that are remote or very distant from our store in southwest Colorado.
In order to keep our rates as affordable as possible, kayaks will be delivered to a nearby freight terminal for you to pick up. Residential delivery may be possible for an additional fee (contact us for more info). We do our best to find terminals that are no more than 30 minutes from the address you provide on your order.
We try to avoid any additional shipping charges, but in some cases they are necessary. We reserve the right to charge exact shipping for any boat or board that is on sale below MSRP. We will call to confirm any additional shipping charges prior to sending the boat.
*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.
**If a boat is damaged during transit, any damage must be reported to 4Corners within 3 business days. The customer is also responsible for having the freight company list any damage BEFORE signing any paperwork. We will have no recourse if you do not have the freight company document the damage on the Bill of Lading.**
Used Kayak, Canoe & Raft rates vary. Customer is responsible for all shipping costs on any used or consignment kayaks, canoes or paddle boards. Please contact us or call: 800-426-7637 for an exact shipping rate.
We charge a base rate listed at the time of purchase. We will contact you regarding any additional charges before order fulfillment.
Please be aware that there is almost no shipping liability on used boats / boards. The customer assumes all risks and liability of shipping used items without additional full-value insurance. We can add full-value insurance coverage at an additional charge. Please contact us for a quote.
Stand Up Paddle Boards
Inflatable Paddle Boards
All inflatable paddle boards ship free anywhere in the continental US. Please contact us for quotes to Alaska, Hawaii or Canada.
Rigid Paddle Boards (Composite & Plastic)
All our composite and plastic paddle boards ship via motor freight to the nearest freight terminal or to a registered business address provided by the customer. The customer is responsible for picking their board up from the terminal. Freight charges range from $99 and up, depending on overall board size and weight as listed on each product page. Shipping to residential addresses is possible with an additional fee. Please contact us or call 800-426-7637 for a residential shipping quote before ordering.
The same limitations apply to used paddle boards as they do to used kayaks & canoes. Please see Used Kayaks / Canoes / SUPs section above for more info.
Oversized Items (other than boat / boards)
Oversized items will ship at a flat oversized rate based on size and/or weight. Items such as (but not limited to) dry boxes, one-piece oars/paddles, biminis, firepans, tables, frames and some frame components are considered oversized items. Rates are listed on the product page and are for economy shipping. Please contact us for a quote for expedited shipping on oversized packages.
