UPS Transit Times Not Guaranteed: UPS is not currently guaranteeing transit times. Please keep this in mind if you choose to upgrade your shipping at checkout. Two day shipping for example, may take longer than two days to reach you; overnight shipping may also take an additional day to reach you. While we will ship your items via the transit service you select, UPS is not currently offering any refunds or guarantees related to transit time.

These orders generally ship via USPS or UPS but the specific shipping provider and method is at our discretion. Orders shipping outside the US will incur shipping charges at checkout. Please note, you must provide both a USPS and UPS compatible shipping address to be eligible for the free shipping offer. If you only provide a USPS shipping address, be aware your order is likely to be significantly delayed reaching you. There is space on the check out screen to provide two addresses if necessary.
Free shipping is not available for purchase orders.

Once your order is shipped you will receive a tracking number (US and Canadian customers) so you can keep an eye on its progress.
Please note, due to the value of the items, packages are often shipped with signature confirmation required upon delivery. Please be prepared to sign for your package if requested to do so by the carrier.
