Shipping Policy & Rates
Shipping Within the United States
Orders that are received and paid for after 2:00 p.m. Eastern Standard Time (USA) will ship the next workday. We use the United States Postal Service for most orders.
Most orders are shipped Priority (2-3 day delivery) but the USPS DOES NOT guarantee this type of delivery to small towns within the United States. It is often more cost effective just to ship First Class. Some weight restrictions and package size apply to First Class packages. Due to problems encountered in the past with Express / Overnight mailings we no longer offer this service.
All orders will have "Signature Confirmation" or "Delivery Confirmation" attached for proof of delivery. This is necessary for our protection not only with the USPS but also required if you pay for your order via PayPal. This applies to all packages sent Priority Mail, First Class Mail, or Parcel Post.
Postage rates are computed already should you opt to pay for our order via PayPal. We accept money orders, bank checks, credit union checks, etc. for payment but we no longer accept personal checks due to problems in the past. All orders must be paid for in advance before we can ship. No exceptions. We can advise shipping options and rates prior to your ordering. Please email us your address including zip code, and proposed order and we will compute shipping costs and advise you.
International Orders (Includes Canada and Mexico)
If you live in a foreign country and want to order, you will have to send us an email relinquishing us of any responsibility in case the package goes astray in route to you or if your countries customs holds up the package. You order at your own risk. We can give confirmation of mailing but we cannot guarantee delivery of your package even though we send it packaged compliant with your country's customs regulations.
International orders will have to be paid for using an International Money Order before your order can be processed.
