How much do you need to spend for Lowe’s to deliver?


To qualify for Lowe's free shipping, you need to spend at least $45 online or in the Lowe's app.

You don't need to spend a certain amount to get Same-Day Delivery or major appliance delivery from Lowe's. However, both require a delivery fee.

If you're ordering Same-Day Delivery, Lowe's bases your delivery fee on your order weight and dimensions. If you're getting an appliance delivered, Lowe's bases your delivery fee on your order size and location.

Does Lowe's ever offer free delivery?

Lowe's offers free local delivery on thousands of home improvement items online or in the Lowe's app. Items like furniture, building supplies, bathroom vanities, flooring, cabinets, and hardware are eligible for free local delivery.

Lowe's also offers free Same-Day Delivery on fresh-cut Christmas trees during the holiday season. All you have to do is spend $45 on a tree to qualify.

What are Lowe's delivery options?


Lowe’s Free Shipping

Lowe’s shipping is the default delivery method and applies to most items you buy online. If you place an order for standard shipping, your items should arrive within seven days. But large and bulky items can take a bit more time, up to ten business days.

You’ll qualify for Lowe’s free shipping on orders of $45 or more, as long as your items weigh less than 150 pounds. Processing times vary based on your location. But you’ll get the most accurate delivery estimate when you add items to your online cart.

Lowe's Free Local Delivery

Lowe's offers free local delivery on thousands of items, like furniture, building supplies, lighting, flooring, cabinets, and more. You can even filter your search by items eligible for free delivery.

However, Lowe's doesn't offer free delivery on major appliances anymore. They started charging a delivery fee based on your order size and location in 2024.

Lowe's Same-Day Delivery

Many Lowe's items are eligible for Same-Day Delivery, as long as you order by 2 p.m. local time. But Same-Day Delivery isn't free. Lowe's calculates your delivery fee based on the weight and dimensions of your order.

Place your Same-Day Delivery order online or in the Lowe's app as early in the day as possible. This will ensure your items arrive by 8 p.m. the same day. If you place your order after 2 p.m. local time, it will arrive the next day.

You can order Same-Day Delivery for most items, except for the following:

  • Select hazardous materials

  • Custom items

  • Assembly or installation items

  • Items that require a title

I calculated the Same-Day Delivery cost for Lowe's to bring me two paint rollers and a three-pack of paint brushes. My delivery fee at checkout was $15.

Lowe's Major Appliance Delivery

Lowe's will deliver any major appliance you buy in-store, online, or through the Lowe's app. When you checkout, Lowe's gives you an estimated delivery fee based on your order size and location.

Unfortunately, free delivery on major appliances is a thing of the past. Lowe's used to offer free delivery for appliances over $396. But as of January 2024, they charge a fee for all deliveries, based on your order size and location.

I calculated the cost of delivering a $528 dishwasher from my closest Lowe's store, which is 9.1 miles from my address. came back with a $29 delivery fee.

TIP: Lowe’s Appliance Delivery doesn’t include installation — but you have the option to purchase it separately. For more info on installation services, call 1-800-445-6937, visit your local Lowe’s store, or fill out this online form.

  3. Under Delivery Details, click “Edit Delivery Date” to change the date selected

Do you tip delivery drivers from Lowe’s?

Lowe's doesn't require you to tip delivery drivers, but I strongly suggest that you do. You should also consider any extra work they do, like installations or haul-aways.

For me, it depends on how difficult the delivery is and how much time they spend overall. But I generally tip between $10 and $20 per worker.
