Shipping Time & Carriers

Our strategic partnerships with air freight and ground transportation companies make sure your tooling arrives when you need it, at the lowest possible cost.

  • All orders for stock items ship the same day when an order is placed by 3 pm PST
  • Packages often ship via UPS or FedEx, and pallets ship via XPO or FedEx Freight
  • Packages over 150 lbs / 68 kg are flagged as "heavy" and will need a forklift to move and/or unload

Local Pickup in 50 States + International

When you need the right horizontal directional drilling tool, you can’t afford to waste time. Each Melfred Borzall tooling distributor holds inventory locally near you, so you can get tools near you faster.

  • A distribution network with a presence in every state guarantee your tooling is almost never more than a day away
  • 10 key international locations also make international ordering faster than ever. We don’t waste time and neither should you.

Careful Packaging

We understand that HDD tooling is heavy. Carriers sometimes get tired and drop things - that is why we take extra care encapsulating every tool that leaves our dock in preparation for a safe journey from our home to your job site. 

  • Wood & metal pallets are used for heavy equipment
  • Vacuum seal expanding foam cures into place around your tools to keep them from shifting
  • Our mandatory safety and pre-shipment checklist ensures your tooling doesn't leave without receiving some TLC and the Borzall stamp of approval
