FedEx Ground Map


We offer residential delivery on Saturdays to most locations at no additional cost. Most residential deliveries scheduled to arrive on a Monday will now arrive 2 days earlier on Saturday! (For example: Order before 5pm on a Friday and, if you live in a location that would typically receive ground orders in 1 day, you would receive your order on Saturday.)

***To make sure Saturday delivery is available to your ZIP Code contact FedEx by calling 800-GoFedEx before placing your order.


Our multiple shipping facilities eliminate the need to pay extra for express shipping under most circumstances. However, FedEx Overnight® and 2Day® shipping is still available and can be selected at checkout for customers needing their items sooner than standard FedEx Ground can deliver (see map above for details). All Overnight® or 2Day® orders must be received before 5pm EST regardless of shipping destination.


We require $1,000 USD order minimum (before shipping charges) on first time orders and a $500 USD order minimum (before shipping charges) on all future orders with an established account. The recipient of an international shipment is responsible for any import taxes, duties, and any additional fees levied by the destination country. We have no control over these charges and cannot predict these costs. Customs policies vary widely from country to country. Contact your local customs office for further information. When custom clearance procedures are required it can cause further delays in shipment. Due to high shipping costs/duties, international customers are responsible for shipping on warrantied replacements, returns, and/or exchanges.


If there is a discrepancy with your order that is deemed to be caused by VOLT® (e.g., wrong item or quantity, or defective), VOLT® will pay for any shipping costs associated with order resolution. Shipping costs associated with the exchange of items accurately delivered by VOLT® are the sole responsibility of the customer. For details on returns and exchanges, please see our Returns Policy Page.


Many of our products are made of heavy-duty materials and as a result weigh a lot. Weight is the primary factor in estimating shipping charges calculated by FedEx, and with larger orders, weight can total hundreds of pounds. To help offset some of this cost, we pass on our high-volume FedEx discount to you.

5" China Hat August 10, 2015
Reviewer: Jeff Lucas from Simpsonville, SC United States  
Purchased a couple of these and they work great.  Solid construction, easy to install and they look great (on or off).  Very pleased with the result thus far

Excellent Path Lights February 19, 2015
Reviewer: Ted from New York, NY United States  
Excellent path lights, glows 8-12 feet diameter (depending on height of pole and how you adjust the top hat).  Solid brass construction. Buy the 3W bulb for sure.  The light ALWAYS come with a 18" pole, the optional poles will extend that length, not replace it.  My bad in not reading the description more carefully.  I bought the 7" hat version for the back of my yard and used the 5" hat for the nearer beds and walkways.  I thought the 7" hats just a bit too wide for my taste when viewed near.  Careful with the glass top when unpacking.

Quality Product July 2, 2014
Reviewer: Charles Kapr from Paramus, NJ United States  
I purchased these lights along with 3 zone boxes and a 75w transformer. The lights perform a bit better than expected and are of good quality. I spaced the lights approximately 11 - 12' apart which provided the right look. I would comment that I was disappointed that the 25' wires from the lights are aluminum and not copper. Also, the directions inside the transformer for LED bulbs contradicts the websites advice. I would recommend these lights.

Hi-Quality/Low-cost fixture October 20, 2013
Reviewer: Jack of all tra from Door County WI  
There are different sizes and lengths of this pathway light. I would use a yard stick and make sure you order the correct length. The bigger the hat and the taller the fixture--the more the light.|The quality of all the lights I've installed are simply incredible. I have the sense they'll last forever. The glass lens is thick and heavy. The 3-watt LED bulbs throw off a nice amount of light; I don'

Great Product Difficult to Order September 20, 2013
Reviewer: Azbill007 from Tucson AZ  
I tried to order 8 of these on the Volt web site for gardens in my back yard. Order wouldn't take. Called the company and placed my order that way.  When I got product it was tall lights not the short lights I wanted. Used them anyway and they are ok but don't match the Volt lights already in place
