We ship most orders of in-warehouse merchandise within 48 hours by either US Postal Service 1st Class, Media Mail or Priority Mail. We offer standard ground shipping which we term as “STANDARD SHIPPING” for all non-express shipments (see rate chart below). We reserve the right to ship “best way” on all non-express shipments. “Best way” means that we will ship the packages by way of what we feel is the surest and quickest method for the s&h fee charged. We can also ship your order via UPS Next Day Air or UPS 2nd Day air for delivery the following or 2nd business day. Express shipping is not included in the standard shipping & handling “STANDARD SHIPPING” cost. If you would like Express shipping, please email us immediately after placing an order with instructions to do so. We will then email you with a total shipping and handling fee, along with an invoice for the difference in cost. If you have any questions regarding this, please email us prior to placing your order.
