Shipping and international sales information.
For UPS Shipping Options - P.O.,APO or FPO Boxes are NOT accepted by UPS.
Note: All UPS shipping methods as well as USPS Express Mail shipping are insured for $100 and are issued a tracking number and can be tracked.
UPS ground - except Alaska & Hawaii
UPS Ground is the most common shipping method used throughout the United States. Although transit time and rates vary depending on your location in the 48 contiguous states, this option is the most cost effective. Most packages arrive within 2-4 business days. Even next day can happen in the Michigan area.
You can approximate the number of days for UPS Ground delivery to your location, by viewing UPS Ground Delivery Times.
Ground service may experience increased transit times during the holiday season.
For customers in Alaska and Hawaii where UPS Ground shipping is not available, we suggest UPS next day or UPS 2-day service.
UPS 2nd day air
UPS 2nd Day Air provides guaranteed on-time delivery to every address throughout the United States and Puerto Rico by end of the second day. This service is an economical alternative for time-sensitive shipments that do not require overnight or morning service. UPS 2nd Day Air service provides substantial savings compared to the rates for overnight air service. Intra-Alaska shipments are not guaranteed.
