We offer Financing as a method of payment; if an order has a subtotal of $500.00 or more and is being shipped within the United States. GoFoodservice’s preferred third party financier is “FaaStrak”. FaaStrak utilizes multiple lenders to help you find the best financing option that fits your needs. If you prefer to use a different financing company, we do have others available to choose from upon request. Please contact us for more information.
Most orders placed before 1:00 PM EST will be shipped same day, if the item is in stock and your order is approved.
Shipping may take 1-5 business days depending on the location of the ship-to address. Shipping differs for each item. Most popular items are free shipping. There may be extra delivery costs imposed by the freight carrier for special shipping conditions and areas. Hawaii and Alaska have special shipping rates, please call for pricing.
Due to the variables associated with how shipping costs are calculated, all of our shipping costs are estimates and may change at any time. We do our best to be as accurate as possible but unfortunately, some estimates are too much to absorb. Generally, if there is a 10 - 20% difference in shipping costs, we'll contact you for approval before we process your order.
Items that have a freight cost or qualify for free shipping, are curbside delivery only and do not include inside delivery, liftgate, or any additional accessorials. These additional services must be approved/paid for ahead of time and notated on your order. Unless inside delivery is requested and paid for at time of purchase, the driver will NOT bring your delivery to the door or inside your location. In the event you request the carrier to perform additional delivery services and those services are performed, once we receive the bill for those services, the payment method on file will be charged. It's highly recommended to pay for these services ahead of time, otherwise, additional fees imposed by the carrier after your order has been delivered, may end up costing more, based on the carrier providing the services.
Orders shipping to locations considered to be residential, may be subject to additional fees.
Orders shipping to locations considered to be limited access, such as universities, prisons, military bases, country clubs, etc may be subject to additional fees.
Orders shipping to an extended area location such as less populated or accessible areas may be subject to additional fees.
Liftgate enables the truck driver to bring your equipment off the freight truck to the ground. Liftgate is optional in most cases, but recommend for customers who do not have a loading dock (loading dock must be 4 ft or higher from the ground) or a forklift on site.
Some items can weigh several hundred pounds, which could cause serious injuries if not brought to the ground by a liftgate. Additionally, items that are around 100 lbs may seem easy to get off the truck, but unfortunately due to liability reasons, the driver may not allow you to remove the freight without liftgate service. Some variables associated with removing the freight off the truck and onto the ground are: personal injury and/or potential damage to the shipment (please note, when items are delivered by freight, they will most likely be on a pallet, which makes the items bulky and very difficult to bring to the ground as well).
If an item is shipping by freight to a residential location, liftgate is required since there will be no forklift or loading dock at time of delivery.
Shipments to freight or package forwarding companies that are going outside of the United States, must be paid cash method only.
If a shipment is to be reconsigned, relocated, or redelivered due to the customer not being available or at the customer's request, the shipping company may charge additional fees for those services. If applicable, those fees will also be charged to the customer's payment method on file.

- Custom fabricated items
- Disposables such as perishable or consumable items (food, food containers, plates, cups, etc)
- Hazmat, aerosol, & flammable liquid products
- Closeout products

State & Local Laws
In accordance with applicable state and local laws, GoFoodservice does not collect sales or use tax in all states but is required to always charge sales tax for items shipping to IN & KY. If taxes are calculated at the time of purchase for states other than where GoFoodservice is registered to collect, this may be due to the manufacturer or distributor requiring taxes to be collected upfront, since they are registered or required to remit sales or use tax on our behalf. In the event GoFoodservice is notified or charged sales or use tax for your purchase after the fact, we will update your order to reflect the taxes and will contact you to collect the difference. GoFoodservice does not benefit from the collection of sales or use tax and will always remit collected taxes appropriately.
For states imposing sales or use taxes, your purchase may be subject to tax unless it is specifically exempt. In general, purchases made out of state by means of the internet or other remote methods, does not disqualify you from paying sales tax on your order. Many states require purchasers to file a sales or use tax return at the end of the year, reporting all taxable purchases that were not collected. Wherein you may be subject to pay those uncollected taxes on your personal or business tax return. If GoFoodservice does not collect sales tax on your order, it is your responsibility to check your state & local laws to find out if you need to disclose your purchase on your tax return.
If you have a valid tax exempt or resale certificate, you can email it to us and we’ll submit it for review. All tax exemption requests must be sent before your order has been placed. If sent after the fact, we can not guarantee taxes will be removed or refunded for your order. In the event a manufacturer or distributor are unable to accept your certificate, GoFoodservice will be forced to collect sales or use tax for you, and you may have to write them off on your tax return, when applicable.
