Free Domestic Shipping
ALL online orders for addresses within the UNITED STATES will qualify for free shipping via USPS Media Mail. Customers outside the Lower 48 should allow for protracted Media Mail delivery times - up to 4 weeks or more. Other domestic services such as First Class, Priority and Express Mail are available depending on shipment weight, but will be charged at normal rates.
First Class Package: Speedy delivery service for lighter shipments.
Priority Mail: Offers a 2-3 day service to most domestic destinations.
Express Mail: Next day delivery to many destinations, some before 12 noon. Less accessible areas will receive a second day service. If in doubt you can check on the USPS Web site - www.usps.com
Media Mail: Special economical service for Books, CDs & DVDs.
Normal delivery times are 4-8 days, but the service can be very slow at times and is definitely not recommended for customers outside of the Lower 48.
First-Class Mail International: Airmail service for shipments up to 4 lbs in weight. Delivery times are normally around 6-14 days, but can be up to 3-4 weeks or even longer on occasion.
Priority Mail International: Airmail delivery for shipments over 4 lbs in weight. Delivery times are normally around 6-14 days, but can be up to 3-4 weeks or even longer, depending on destination.
Express Mail International (EMS): High speed service for those very urgent shipments. Items normally leave the US on day of shipment. Delivery times are normally 3-7 working days.
(Please note that International shipments may also be liable for customs duty, sales or other import taxes. We are not responsible for these charges and are unable to provide any estimate as to their likely amount - it is the responsibility of the recipient to pay them to the carrier at time of delivery. Also, customs' clearance delays can sometimes lead to protracted shipping times).
Military Mail - Army/Fleet Post Office
APO / FPO: To qualify, destination country must be USA. Select from the available range of services. If you use another destination country, then you will be charged the normal international rates to that country.
Shipping charges are supplied direct to our site by the United States Postal Service. We may also make a small additional charge to cover the direct costs of packing and handling, but this is kept to a minimum. Unlike Amazon and others, we do combine shipping, and don't charge on a per item basis. We do not make any profits from the operation of our shipping department.
We undertake to ship your order within 2 working days of receipt. Choice of a faster service, such as Express, will not affect this time, but insures that USPS will get your order to you more quickly.
We ship to the address given and are not responsible for shipments delayed or undeliverable due to supply of an incorrect shipping address. Undeliverable items will be refunded less a restocking charge on their safe return to our warehouse. In such cases no shipping charges can be refunded.
Our responsibility for delivery ends when the item is safely delivered to the mailbox or other receptacle at the given shipping address. If this is the address of a forwarding agent, then it is the sole responsibility of that agent to insure safe onward delivery to the ulimate address.
