What does the Availability status mean?
- In Stock - The product is currently available, and normally ships within 1 business day. Due to high order volume in November and December, in-stock items normally ship within 3-5 business days. Please note, however, that we do not ship products on Saturday, Sunday, or major US holidays.
- Out of Stock - The product is not immediately available, but is on order with the supplier, and will be shipped to you as soon as possible (which, in most cases should only be a few days, but in some cases, could be 1-3 weeks after you place your order.) For out of stock items, you can request an e-mail when the item is back in stock.
Back In Stock Email
Can I be notified when a product comes back in stock?
Yes! We can send you an e-mail when a product is available for purchase. Any product that is out of stock will have an "Email me when available" link on the product page. Just click the link, fill out the simple form, and when the item(s) you select come back in stock, you'll receive an e-mail from us.
Please note that you'll receive a separate e-mail for each item you select. Once we send that e-mail, you won't receive another notification unless you request it again. To be sure you receive your e-mail, be sure to add "firstname.lastname@example.org" to your address book so the e-mail is not marked as spam.
Will I be charged sales tax?
Because our office is located in Florida, all orders shipped to anywhere in Florida will be charged sales tax. If you are a tax exempt organization, please contact us at 1-800-332-3256 (561-998-0004) for assistance. We will ask you to fax us a copy of your tax exempt certificate to 561-998-0119 and you can place the order with us over the phone.
Will I have to pay customs fees on my international order?
Orders shipped outside of the US will almost always be charged customs fees (taxes, duties, processing fees, brokerage fees, etc.) when they arrive. Unfortunately, Boca Bearings has no control over these fees. UPS and Fedex seem to incur more fees than US Mail. But in our experience the US Mail is not as reliable as Fedex and UPS outside of the USA and Canada. If you are not familiar with the customs laws and fees in your country, please check with your local customs office for more information.
What are your accepted payment methods?
All prices listed on our website are in U.S. Dollars. We accept Visa, MasterCard, Discover, and American Express. We also accept PayPal. For your protection, we screen credit card orders for potential fraud. Please ensure that your billing and shipping addresses are exactly correct, to avoid delays in order processing. Incorrect information may cause a delay in the processing of your order. Your order may also be delayed if additional verification of billing information is necessary.
You may also make payment by certified check, or money order in U.S. currency only. Just place items in your shopping cart, proceed to checkout and fill out your billing/shipping information. You do not have to enter a credit card to get to this point. Print out the page with your order and the shipping rates and mail that information to us with your payment. DO NOT SEND CASH Please note that orders mailed to us require a longer processing time than those placed on our website. Our mailing address is:
BOCA BEARING COMPANY
1420 Neptune Dr. Suite A
Boynton Beach, FL 33426 U.S.A.

Yes! We accept PayPal for orders placed using our One-step checkout process, "Lightning Checkout". To pay using PayPal, you must have an established PayPal account. For more information on setting up a PayPal account, visit their web site.
To place your order using PayPal, just place items in your shopping cart, proceed to checkout and fill out your billing/shipping information. Select PayPal as the payment method by clicking the button at the bottom of the page to place your order using PayPal. This will direct you to the PayPal web site. Enter your PayPal login e-mail address and password and hit continue. Follow the instructions on the PayPal web site to process your payment. Once you confirm and process the final payment on the PayPal web site, you will be redirected back to the Boca Bearings web site, and you will be shown your Order Confirmation page.
Why was I asked to send in address verification?
Sometimes, when an order is placed with a discrepancy between the billing and the shipping addresses, or with a billing address outside the US, or the order is above a certain value, our ordering system will flag the transaction for manual review. In these circumstances, we request physical documentation of the billing address on the order in question to make sure that the order has been placed by the account holder. At Boca Bearings we take your security and privacy very seriously. We hope you understand that when we have to take extra security measures such as this, we do it to protect you as well as Boca Bearings.
Unfortunately, without this documentation, we are unable to complete the processing of your order. If we do not receive the requested documentation within two weeks of your initial order date, your order will automatically be canceled. If you can't provide documentation of the billing address on your order, you will need to cancel your current order and reorder using the proper billing address for your credit card. Once we receive and process your documentation, you should not need to provide it on subsequent orders.

You may however return the package to us once you have received it for a refund.
Privacy & Security
Do you ship outside the U.S.?
Absolutely. After placing items in your shopping cart, proceed to the checkout area. Complete the Shipping and Billing information, including selecting your country. If your country is not in our drop-down list, we are unable to ship orders to that country. We ship orders via US Mail, FedEx or UPS. The most reliable way to ship internationally is by UPS and Fedex. There are however, more duties and taxes associated with these carriers when the package arrives in your country. If you are not familiar with the customs laws and fees in your country, please check with your local customs office for more information. US Mail is less expensive but in our experience, not as reliable because they are not the ones bringing the package to your doorstep.
Please note that you may need to pay additional import fees, taxes, brokerage fees, and handling fees to receive your order.
These additional fees are not collected or controlled by Boca Bearings. Also, you might be contacted by your local customs office concerning payment of customs fees, or to receive final delivery of your order. Customs processing of your shipment might cause delays in the delivery of your package. Please make sure you are familiar with your country's customs process and fee structure before you order - so you know what to expect. Please note that we prefer not to use the US Post Office for overseas shipments due to the lack of complete tracking information available from the Post Office, and because of the longer delivery times. Please see our special page on International Shipping for more information.
