Shipping Costs & Times
We work hard every day to bring you the lowest possible shipping cost. WE DO NOT CHARGE A HANDLING OR PER ORDER FEE. We encourage you to check ups.com and USPS.com published shipping rates and verify that our shipping is actually what the carrier charges and often less then their published rates based on our discounts that we pass on to you. If you have alternate shipping arrangements with UPS or USPS, please contact us and we will be glad to ship based on your instructions.
The shipping cost for most orders is based on the combined size, weight, shipping method, delivery address / shipment distance. Our shopping cart automatically calculates the weight of your order and distance based on your zip code and each time checks with UPS or USPS websites for current accurate shipping costs. Occassionally you may encounter an unrealistic shipping cost due to an incorrect product weight or similar entry error. Please contact our Customer Service staff and they will manually calculate the least expensive shipping method for you.
PROCESSING & SHIPPING TIMES
PROCESSING TIME for an item is the time from when you submit your order to when the item leaves our facility. We pride ourselves on fast shipping. Most in stock orders are shipped the same day (until the carrier makes their final daily pick up) in which case your order will ship the following business day. You will receive an email when your order is released for shipping.
SHIPPING TIME is from when the item leaves our facility to when it arrives at your door. Shipping time will be determined based on the shipping method you select when you "checkout" using our on line secure shopping cart. On average, UPS ground to the east coast takes 5 BUSINESS Days. Priority mail to the east coast takes 2 to 3 days. Closer destinations take less time.
