Note: All delivery windows are in business days and do not include weekends. Order processing time is not included in this delivery window. Order processing begins on the first business day after the order has been placed.
Orders containing LiPO/Li-ION batteries and cannot be shipped expedited due to restricted shipping.
Orders placed on through our website take approximately 1 business day to process. This includes time to ensure the payment has been processed, the order has been screened for approval, and the shipping address verified. Orders placed after 12:00 pm CST on business days may not be processed until the next business day. Additional factors may delay processing time based on customer response time as outlined in the Order Approval section.
Orders that require additional verification, anti-fraud verification, and/or address validation may delay the processing and/or shipping times depending on customer response time. Our customer service staff will contact you via email and/or phone within 1 business day for orders that require additional verification. Responses that are received after hours or on non-business days may delay shipments accordingly.
Please note that if your billing and shipping addresses do not match we will likely attempt to contact you via email to confirm your order details. In some cases, this will delay order processing by 1 business day or as long as it takes you to respond to our email inquiries. To avoid these potential delays we highly encourage shipping to your confirmed billing address and using payment methods such as Amazon Pay or Paypal.
Items that are marked as in-stock are in stock and available for purchase. In the rare case that an item sells out unexpectedly, a backorder notification will be sent via email within 2 business days. Items that are subject to backorder are not guaranteed to arrive within the selected shipping method time frame. You can choose to have these items cancelled and refunded by contacting us.
All orders will ship via one of the following shipping companies: UPS, FedEx, USPS, or DHL. Please note that your tracking information will be sent directly from one of these companies to the email address you provided. You’ll receive this tracking information separate from the order status update emails you receive from us.
Our shipping rates are based on the weight and size of the items in your order. To calculate the exact shipping cost of your order simply add the items you’re interested in into your shopping cart and update to the desired quantities. At the bottom of the shopping cart page, there is a shipping calculator. Simply enter your State and Zip code and then click the apply button to see your shipping cost.
Shipping transit times will vary depending on the service you select. Packages that are shipped after 3:00 pm CST on Fridays or on the weekend are not picked up by carriers until the following Monday. Orders placed on Holidays will typically ship the next business day.
Please note that orders with any UPS service, including UPS Next Day Air, UPS 2nd Day Air, UPS 3-Day Select, and UPS Ground do not deliver on weekends as part of the carrier’s (i.e. UPS) regular service. Note that even if UPS trucks are operating in your area during the weekend that they will not deliver regular parcels without an additional Saturday delivery surcharge fee paid. At this time the only way to set up orders with weekend delivery through UPS is to order them through our customer service phone line.
Some packages shipped USPS may deliver on Saturdays. Always refer to your tracking information email for the delivery estimates and tracking updates.
