If you need a quicker shipping speed, please feel free to choose from the various shipping services that we offer on our drop down menu during checkout. We also do our best to make sure you receive your package during the same week ordered, so we may in some situations upgrade your order to 3 Day Service free of charge depending on the delivery location zip code.
We are closed for shipping on all major holidays that USPS//UPS/Fedex consider, such as Thanksgiving and Christmas. On any other holidays that vary by carrier, if any of our preferred shipping carriers are closed, we will always make sure to use another carrier that is open.
For our international couriers, we use USPS and UPS for their cost, convenience, and reliability. For USPS we only use "Priority Mail Express International" due to its tracking ability unlike "Priority Mail International". In some countries being able to track a package is crucial due to a higher probability of issues with domestic couriers that handle the delivery process.
We use UPS due to its worldwide reliability of use and tracking ability. This is also a private courier that handles the shipping process from A to B so delivery is more secure and efficient. We also have great discounted rates for our 3 usual shipping services for UPS that include the following:
UPS Standard - the equivalent of UPS ground domestically. (1-7 business days)
UPS Worldwide Expedited - the equivalent of 2-3 day domestic shipping, although in this case around 2-5 business days to most destinations.
UPS Worldwide Express - the equivalent of domestic Next Day Air shipping, although in some markets up to 2-3+ business days.
