Novelty Fireworks and Non-Fireworks like:
Ground Spinners
Sky Lanterns
Pyro Supplies

FedEx or UPS charges will be calculated at checkout as applicable. FedEx or UPS eligible orders usually process and ship within 1-2 business day.

Aerial Fireworks and Ground Effects Fireworks (i.e Fountains) Orders

Freight companies like UPS Ground and FedEx Ground do not handle flammable materials such as fireworks - therefore we must utilize a freight company that will deliver your fireworks on a large truck. Shipping charges for fireworks are based upon the total weight of the order and are calculated during checkout.

Fireworks will be shipped to your home or the closest freight terminal. We've done our best to secure low-cost shipping along with making it as easy as possible for you to receive your fireworks shipment. We've created a list of helpful tips below that will aid you throughout the process:

1. On the day of delivery you will receive a call from the driver coordinating the time of delivery.
2. Please understand that you must be present at your home or business to receive the fireworks order.
3. Be sure to inspect your order and have the driver note any damages on the delivery receipt before signing.
4. The delivery will require an acceptance signature of your order and in some cases your ID must be present.

If you have any questions or concerns throughout the shipping or delivery process, please give Red Apple a call at (775) 727-7200 or email us.

Shipping Charges on Fireworks Orders

Shipping charges for fireworks by the case are calculated by weight; therefore, the heavier the order, the more shipping will cost. If items are not picked up at the terminal or if the customer refuses delivery, the customer agrees to pay all shipping and return charges and a 30 percent restocking fee.

What States Do We Ship To?

We ship to all states except the following:
Alaska, Hawaii and California
We cannot ship to APO/FPO or P.O. Boxes nor do we ship outside the United States.

How Long Does It Take To Receive My Fireworks?

Fireworks orders take longer to process because we may contact you for age, ID, and shipping address verification. You can expedite the process by providing accurate contact information. Depending on your location, fireworks orders typically take 7 to 10 business days to reach you. You should plan on ordering at least two weeks before you need them. The more time you give us, the better the chance you will have your delivery when you need it. We ship FOB, which means once your fireworks order is loaded on the truck it is your responsibility. All delays, damages and losses must be taken up with the freight company directly. We do not guarantee delivery dates. Shipping cutoff dates for the July 4 holiday are typically between June 19 and June 25, depending on the year and where the order is going.
