Shipping and transit time estimates are determined by shipping service and standard handling times.
Our standard handling times are as follows:
For orders received before 12:00 PM EST (Monday - Friday): Same Day.*
For orders received after 12:00 PM EST (Monday - Friday): Next Business Day.*
*We do not ship on Saturdays, Sundays, or Observed Federal Holidays.
*On occasion, we will choose a delivery option that minimizes actual transit time to your location. This may mean that we ship an order on Monday instead of a Friday. The reason for this is some carriers stop moving packages over the weekend.
*Same Day Handling Cut-Off times are not flexible.
Example #1: You place an order on a normal Friday at 1:30 PM EST and your estimated shipping time is 3 days to the West Coast (US). This order will be delivered to the carrier on the next available business day (Monday) during regular business hours. From there you would count 3 business days. This order should be delivered on Thursday of the following week.
Example #2: You place an order on a normal Monday at 11:01 AM CST and your estimated shipping time is 2 days to Chicago, IL. This order would ship on Tuesday since we received the order at 12:01 EST (Timezone adjustment). Remember we operate on Eastern Standard Time. This order would be estimated to arrive on Thursday of the same week.
Example #3: You place an order on a normal Wednesday at 11:00 AM EST and your estimated shipping time is 1 day to Charlotte, NC. The next day is an observed federal holiday. Your order will be delivered to the carrier on the same day. However, deliveries do not occur on observed Holiday. Your order would be estimated to arrive on Friday of the same week.
