Shipping times

Our average time to ship is 3-5 business days for domestic orders and  10-15 business days for international. This time frame allows us to ship multiple orders from our warehouse out to the freight forwarders terminal, saving our customers money with shipping discounts. 

 (For international orders only) Different Freight forwarders have different estimated time frames.Our standard and most economical means of shipping uses a freight forwarder. Shipments are sent to the company's US terminal. Many shipments from numerous sources are consolidated into one container for shipping overseas. At this time Reps have told us, they try to send a container every 4 weeks. Ocean transit time is 35 days. There is no way to estimate the clearance of countries customs for shipments. If shipping is a concern we do offer other options, that can speed up the time at an additional cost.
