Common Carrier Shipping Services UPS My Choice®

Standard Shipping: Most “free shipping” packages are shipped via USPS Priority Mail or UPS Ground or Sure Post (a hybrid UPS/Post Office method) or Fed Ex ground. The shipping method used is determined by the warehouse shipping location, the box size and weight and shipping cost are all factors in determining which method is used. Generally speaking, the vast majority of packages are delivered in 6 working days or less. The average is about 3 working days. If you have concerns about the shipping and transit time of an order you intend to place, feel free to inquire with us on the specifics.

Next Business Day: Delivered to you the next business day after we ship (business days are Mon thru Fri).

Second Business Day: Delivered to you two business days after we ship (business days are Mon thru Fri).

Third Business Day: Delivered to you three business days after we ship (business days are Mon thru Fri).

Currently UPS does not guarantee second or third business days shipping. For more information about the UPS guaranteed service you can go here.

About Signature Required: “No Signature Required” is standard for all UPS/FedEx ground services. The delivery driver has discretion as to whether to leave the box without a signature. If you request Signature Required service, there may be additional charges from the shipping company.

Drivers are more likely to require a signature for air shipments, so if you specify air shipping it is best to ship to an address where somebody is available to sign.

US Post Office Services

US Mail: US Mail shipping is an option for those who must ship to a PO Box, an APO/FPO military address, or a US Territory address. In the very first step of checkout, you can request US Mail shipping options (look for the “My order must ship via USPS” check box). Items under 1 lb will ship via First Class Mail and heavier items go Priority Mail. The shipping time for either option is typically 3 working days in the US.

Also, First Class mail is offered as the default shipping method for lightweight items (under 1 lb) because it is the most economical way to ship those lightweight items.

A Note About “Drop Ship” Items via US Mail: We are not able to offer USPS shipping on some products which ship directly from our vendors (because our vendors don’t offer USPS shipping). In those cases, we set up your order to ship from the warehouse in Texas which may add one to five working days to the time it takes us to ship. Our shopping cart will flag you and change the time to ship if this is the case.
