Shipping Policy

Most packages are shipped using UPS or USPS and can be sent to all US locations with a valid street address or PO Boxes. Unless an expedited shipping option is chosen or the customer specifies preference, we will choose the shipping carrier at the time the order is processed.

The shipping charges for Domestic Ground Service are based on the amount of your purchase as defined in the following table:

Ground Shipping 6.99 9.99 13.99 17.99 19.99

*We charge our actual (USPS or UPS) shipping on orders being sent to Alaska, Hawaii, Canada, FPO/APO and Overseas addresses. Once your order is placed we will notify you via email with the total additional charges required to ship your order and will wait for your approval before processing the order.

Shipping for UPS Overnight, 2-Day, and 3-Day are based on weight and are computed automatically at checkout. Simply fill out the order form and before your order is submitted, you will be presented with all shipping options and costs.

To determine when a package will arrive, be aware that delivery times are calculated on work days only (Monday thru Friday) weekends do not apply.
For example, a package shipped on Friday with overnight delivery will arrive on Monday unless paying additional fees (on top of expedited fees) for a Saturday delivery.
