We strive to process all in stock orders by the next business day. Our FedEx and USPS pickup occurs at about 1:15pm Pacific Time each weekday (excluding weekends). Our shipments are delivered by FedEx or USPS on business days only, and exclude Saturdays (except USPS), Sundays and Holidays. We do not ship orders on Saturdays or Sundays. Some in stock orders can take up to 3 business days to ship, or longer due to circumstances beyond our control. We do not guarantee same day shipping. During busy holiday periods orders can become delayed due to warehouse backlog, weather, or other circumstances beyond our control. We charge a $10 order cancellation fee for orders placed with our company for an in stock item that is cancelled after the checkout process. We do not charge any fee for an order cancelled because we did not have the item in stock. We will ship to APO/FPO addresses but the shipment cannot be tracked and shipments to APO/FPO addresses are done at the sole risk of the customer. Please note that when an upgraded shipping method is selected, the shipping cost is for the shipping transit time after the order is shipped, and is no guarantee that the order will ship the same day. We strongly recommend that you contact our sales office by email or phone if you would like to place an order for a product that is time critical. For USPS shipments, tracking is generally not available.
