Summit Appliance Shipping & Return Policy

Due to our extensive warehouse facilities and active truck fleet, we are proud to offer many qualifying products with next day delivery to areas within our daily trucking radius. We maintain a steady inventory in our New York and New Jersey warehouses with over 200,000 square feet of property dedicated to storage, manufacturing, and product development.

Nationwide, we maintain a next day shipping policy for qualifying products with daily drop shipping or common carrier pickup.

As many SUMMIT models are modified to customer's precise specifications, we cannot guarantee next day shipping or delivery on all products. Look for the 'Next Day' icon to identify qualifying product our website, or ask your SUMMIT sales representative for more information.
