Delivery Times

To find out when your order will arrive, you need to consider the time it takes to process your order. Most of our orders ship within 24 hours but during Sale Event or holidays you should plan on 72 hours to process an order. Our goal is always to ship the order the same day it is received and payment is made. No shipments are made on Fridays, Saturdays or Sundays.

Here is the equation to calculate when you will receive your package:
Product Processing + Shipping Transit Time = Total Delivery Time

UPS shipping guidelines are:
Overnight - Guaranteed next business day
2 Day - Guaranteed in 2 business days
3 day - Guaranteed in 3 business days
Ground - 3 to 7 days, not a guaranteed service

UPS does not count the day the package is shipped as a transit day. UPS does not guarantee any transit times during the three weeks surrounding Christmas. They are closed on major holidays and the Friday after Thanksgiving. UPS does not guarantee delivery within seven days on Ground Method . Shipping problems are beyond our control once your package leaves our facility, however we are always happy to help in resolving shipping issues with UPS.
