How can I import containers loads of fireworks through Spirit of ’76?

For large orders (1,000 cases or more) we are able to make drop-ship arrangements where the merchandise is delivered direct to your location from the factory. Since the drop-ship orders require a 40-foot cargo container to be completely full, the investment is usually $40,000.00-$55,000.00 per container. However, drop-ship orders receive the lowest prices because some warehousing and shipping expenses are avoided. Please click here to learn more about importing fireworks.

How much does shipping cost?

If you have an order placed in your shopping cart, our website will automatically calculate shipping costs for you. Spirit of ’76 gets rate quotes from different freight companies. Because of our high volume shipping, we are given significant discounts which we are able to pass on to our customers to provide the lowest rate possible for your shipment. Shipping costs are generally based on weight. Please click here to email the weight of your order and the zip code we are shipping to and one of our customer service representatives who will be happy to provide a rate quote for you.

What does 2/1, 4/1, 24/40/16, 24/12/16 mean?

We sell all of our fireworks by the case. The number under the product name shows how a case is packed. For example, GM101 Porkinator shows 4/1. This means that there are 4 identical units in a case. RL101 Black Box Artillery Shell is packed 12/6. This means there are 12 boxes, each with 6 artillery shells.
