Frequently Asked Questions
Q. If I place an order with you today, when will I receive my items?
A. We normally ship all products between 1 and 3 business days from the receipt of an order.
PLEASE NOTE: we do not ship on weekends or major holidays, as our warehouses are closed.
If we are unable to ship within the normal timeframe, we will send you an email asking whether you are willing to accept the delay.
Orders are shipped from many different locations across the US, so transit time will vary. Most products normally arrive between 7 and 10 calendar days from date of order. Our speediest delivery option is UPS 3 Day Select service. Our normal order processing time of 1-3 days still applies with expedited shipping. Note that certain large items such as cargo boxes require 2 business days for order processing and may take as much as 4-5 business days for truck freight delivery to distant locations in the US.
Please don't ask us to make absolute guarantees on your order with respect to delivery dates. We do our best with every order, but it does not make sense for either party to attempt to guarantee arrival on a specific date because of an impending trip, event, etc. Too many variables are beyond our control to make these guarantees.
