Shipping & Delivery
What's my shipping charge?
The shipping charge depends on the weight and size of your order, the shipping method, and your distance from New York, New York. UPS shipping charges are calculated in real time with UPS' web site, using actual weight of items, shipping distance from New York, New York, and the published UPS rates. A nominal charge is added for the packaging materials ($0.25-$3 depending on package size), labor and handling ($1-5 per order), and insurance ($1-5 per order).
You can find the shipping charge online before entering your credit card information and sending your final order. You can compare the shipping charge by changing the ordered item(s) in the shopping basket, the shipping method, and the destination.
Shipping cost goes up almost exponentially in the sequence of UPS Ground, 3 Day Select, 2nd Day Air, and Next Day Air.
Why my shipping charge is zero ($0)?
Several reasons could cause $0 shipping charge to happen. First, a wrong shipping method may be chosen. For instance, UPS Ground may be chosen for an Alaska (AK) or Hawaii (HI) address. Second, the total weight for the order may exceed 100 Lb. Third, an "unrecognized" zip code or State may be entered in the shipping address.
In such situations, we will manually adjust the shipping cost. We normally will call you to verify the shipping cost before shipping.
When will my order be shipped?
Most orders placed before 2pm EST during business days are shipped on the same day for orders that are paid with credit card without any complications. Orders placed after 2pm and during non-business hours such as evenings, weekends, and holidays are normally processed and shipped on the next business day. We may try to get orders with air shipment placed after 2pm EST during business days out on the same day, but there is no guarantee.
Some exceptions apply to the above statements. Exceptions are expensive consumer items, items that are specifically designated as "Normally shipped in 1-3 business days" in the item descriptions and drop shipped items. Payment complications include: different shipping and billing addresses, billing information inconsistent with what's on the credit card record, and orders that can't be verified by phone.
May I receive an e-mail confirmation when my order is shipped?
For UPS shipping methods, you'll receive an e-mail confirmation with package quantity, weights, and estimated delivery time at the evening hours after your package is shipped. Make sure that you enter a correct e-mail address on your order form.
Top Reasons for Order Delays
Billing information inconsistent with what's on the credit card record, requiring phone verification. To protect the credit card holder, we have to call, email or use other ways to verify that the credit card holder authorized this purchase. The verification process starts soon after a faxed order is received; however, it may take from a few hours to a few business days to complete, depending on the response we receive.
Billing address/name different from shipping address/name, requiring phone verification. Again, we must verify the credit card information before shipping to protect credit card holders.
High-value and consumer items are ordered without a manned, working phone number for phone verification. Chances for credit card fraud are much higher for these items. You must have a working phone number with your order. Sometimes, signed, dated, and faxed purchase orders are required.
Wrong address or zip code used in the order. Shipping companies can't deliver and may send the packages back to us.
No one at the shipping address to accept the package. The shipping company may send the package back to us.
Delays by shipping companies. Shipment could be temporarily "lost" by shipping companies for shipping addresses that are far away from New york, especially for UPS Ground. Occasionally but rarely it may take 10 or more business days for the package to show up. Please note that UPS does not guarantee air shipment to residential addresses.
Delays during holiday seasons between Thanksgiving and Christmas. Shipping companies often do not guarantee any shipment a couple of weeks before Christmas. Make your gift arrangements early.
Shortage of ordered item(s). We try to contact customers in case of shortages that will delay orders for more than one business day. We may split an order and ship items separately. Back ordered items are marked as "BO" on your packing slip.
Drop shipped items typically require more time to be processed. These items normally ship in 2-3 business days and are noted so under part availability section of each item.
Purchase orders may be delayed for us to verify account information. This is especially true for first time customers.
International Orders Questions
Any orders from outside of the USA must be pre-paid including shipping in advance by cashier's check, money order or direct bank wire transfer in US dollars. The shipping cost of international orders is often very high, making such transactions not appealing. Customers are responsible for customs duties and tariffs whenever applicable.
