US Shipping (including APO)

ALL SHIPPING IS THROUGH THE UNITED STATES POSTAL SERVICE (USPS):

Current shipping schedule is posted to the front of the front page of the website, should there be any temporary changes.

Our shipping hours are Monday through Friday, from 8am until 3pm. After this time, we are not able to ship any more boxes until the next business day. We are unable to ship orders on weekends, holidays listed at the bottom of this page, or during USPS emergency closings, this includes Priority Express orders. 

Shipping prices for within the US (through 3:00PM EST Thursday 3/28/19)

Priority - $6.00 (anywhere in the US including APO, FPO), includes insurance.

Orders over $75 are shipped on our dime ("Free Shipping" to you) with one condition.  If the *ACTUAL SHIPPING CHARGE* we have to pay for your order to ship to you exceeds $25, we reserve the right to contact you with a shipping quote.  We will cover *at least* $25 of the shipping cost in all situations but may need you to pay the rest of it for it to ship out.  Shipping invoices paid by 3PM EST would still ship out that day.  We will do our best to contact you as early in the day as possible if this situation applies to your order but if you order late in the day it may be a very small window of time that we have to invoice you and receive payment without it delaying the order.

New 2019 Shipping prices for within the US (after 3:00PM EST Thursday 3/28/19)

NEW SHIPPING ZONES: The "Green" zone per the map below *map being added prior to 3/28* is the closest zone to our warehouse in Wyoming, MI and the lowest rates for us to ship to so thus we ae able to charge slightly less as well.  The "Yellow" zone will be the majority of the country where we have mid-range rates.  The "Red" zone will be the states that are furthest away from our warehouse and thus we incure extra shipping charges for shipping there and so need to charge slightly higher shipping prices to those areas in order to remain in business for the long haul.

First Class - $4.50 (Green), $5.50 (Yellow), $6.50 (Red).  First class orders will be limited in terms of product weight as with all packaging, the box, packing slip and label they must stay under a pound.  Orders shipped this method are NOT INSURED AND MAY TAKE LONGER THAN PRIORITY MAIL.  It is not recommended to select this method if you are concerned with either of those.  But for some people that typically do very small orders this is a way to save a little bit of shipping money.  As you are being presented the option of shipping with insurance below (Priority Mail) we will NOT be responsible for you selecting this method and then wanting it replaced due to it getting damaged or lost in transit.  This shipping method is being provided AT YOUR OWN RISK.  If you do not see First-Class available as a shipping choice for your order, it means that it would be over the weight limit to ship that way and thus HAS to ship via Priority (or Priority Express).

Priority - $7.50 (Green), $8.50 (Yellow), $9.50 (Red).  Priority Mail orders include insurance and the insurance shall cover the package up until the point that it is marked "delivered" via the USPS on the tracking link for the package.  The insurance does not cover anything that happens to it after delivery and does not cover situations where it shows delivered and you can not find the package.  That is a USPS delivery issue (hopefully, and not package theft) and it is not something we are responsible for.  We can certainly help provide you with the best guidelines for how to go about handling it, but ultimately it is something that only USPS can solve.

Free Shipping - $75.00 (Green), $85.00 (Yellow), $95.00 (Red).  Orders placed to US (including military) addresses that exceed the free shipping threshold for your zone are shipped on our dime ("Free Shipping" to you) with one condition.  If the *ACTUAL SHIPPING CHARGE* we have to pay for your order to ship to you exceeds $25, we reserve the right to contact you with a shipping quote.  We will cover *at least* $25 of the shipping cost in all situations but may need you to pay the rest of it for it to ship out.  Shipping invoices paid by 3PM EST would still ship out that day.  We will do our best to contact you as early in the day as possible if this situation applies to your order but if you order late in the day it may be a very small window of time that we have to invoice you and receive payment without it delaying the order.

Priority Express - depends on your zip code and the weight of your order, but is typically $40 to $90.  If the cost for Express turns out to be significantly more or less than what the website quotes you, we would contact you via email and reserve the right to send a shipping quote for the difference.

Delivery times:

Priority is generally 2-4 business days (figure at least 1 more day during active periods of winter or severe weather either at our warehouse, your delivery location or anywhere along the route between), but that is an estimated time frame it is NOT GUARANTEED and USPS does not consider it late/lost until 15 business days have gone by with no movement.  Please do not email us upset that your order was not delivered in 2 days time.  This is not something we state is guaranteed to happen and if you are in urgent need you should use Priority Express.

Priority Express is 1-2 business days and is GUARANTEED delivery.  If you want to see if you are 1-day with Express you can look it up at www.usps.gov with our shipping zipcode 49509 and your receiving zipcode.  Any express orders placed by 3:00pm EST are also guaranteed to ship same business day.
