Shipping Information

At Discount Steel, we take pride in the way we handle and ship all of our material. We only purchase prime material, and we do everything within our capabilities to ensure your material arrives to you the way it arrived to our plant. Once your order has been pulled and is ready for shipment, it is brought to our packaging department where it is double checked for accuracy of material and dimensions. 90% of our shipping packages are custom made to fit your material. Discount Steel orders are shipped via FedEx with the options of Ground, 3 Day, Next Day Air & LTL delivery.  Shipping costs include extensive packaging material and labor to ensure your order arrives to you in excellent condition.

 Please note, all web orders are processed & shipped out of our Minneapolis, MN location.


FedEx Ground is our most popular & cost effective method. Use this map to figure out how long it will take to get your package. 

FEDEX GROUND has an 8ft max and 60 lb weight limit for residential deliveries, and an 8ft max and 120 lbs max limit for commercial deliveries. Oversize orders ship LTL FREIGHT.


Material Weight + Product Dimensions + Packaging Material/Labor + Destination Zip Code = Your total shipping costs

Our system calculates your shipping charges automatically as you go through the order process. Add items to your shopping cart and click the "Estimate Shipping Link" right above the “Begin Checkout button. Fill out the information and select “Go”. Depending on your selection, you will either receive a FedEx Ground quote, Freight Shipment quote, or both.


Sheet material and bar/structural material rarely fit into the same package. If your order contains both, it is likely that you will receive two or more packages. We ship all packages for your order out the same day, however, they may not necessarily arrive to you at the same time.


We offer pick up service for phone in orders at both our Minneapolis, MN and Fort Worth, TX locations.  For online orders, pick up is available at our Minneapolis location.  For directions to either store, click HERE



USPS is typically only used when shipping some of our smaller hardware items.


If you have any questions, or if your order requires faster shipment than what we've described above, please feel free to contact us at, or call us at 1-800-522-5950.
