Most small orders are sent by FedEx or UPS Ground. We seek to match our rates as closely as possible to those that will actually be charged. However, unless the customer calls us to make different arrangements, we only charge the amount shown in the shopping cart at checkout and are not responsible for any differences between the actual and charged rates that may arise.
Sending Small and Large Shipments to Domestic (U.S.) Destinations
We use FedEx or UPS Ground for nearly all of our small domestic shipments. If you call us, we can also provide you with expedited services. Please be aware, however, that except for very small items these services tend to be prohibitively expensive.
Shipment Departure Times
Orders are shipped within 1-2 business days of the time they are received. If you need to have your order processed more quickly, please contact us by phone at 508-888-8305.
