Please take a few minutes to read through our shipping FAQ's to familiarize yourself with our policies and methods. This will ensure that your order proceeds smoothly and arrives in a timely manner!
Shipping for most of the items we offer is included with the purchase price of the item and this is generally indicated below the Add To Cart or Buy Now button as shipping included.
Nearly every item we sell will be shipped via USPS Priority Mail which in most cases has a delivery time of 2 - 3 days. In addition, when we ship your order, you will receive a tracking number via email from the USPS (if you have provided us with a valid email address with your order). Using this service, we can ship your order quicker than using FedEx or UPS because of our location.
In some instances, we will ship either UPS or FedEx at our discretion if pre-arranged prior to the payment for your order. Please know and understand that by using either of these two services requires an additional fee and service charge for handling and transportation.
