Regular Shipping Rates—Our non-Promotional Shipping rates are designed to recoup our cost of shipping your order. We do not profit from these rates nor do we subsidize them. Our shipping and handling charges are made up of two components – the actual cost of shipping charged by the shipping service plus an additional charge of $1.50 to $2.00 per shipment for insurance, packaging and handling. Our website connects with the United States Postal Service and Federal Express to provide real-time shipping quotes based on the weight of the items in your shopping cart, the address to which they are being delivered and the delivery method you choose. To see these shipping quotes just add items to your shopping cart, click View Cart, input your zip code in the shipping estimator and press Enter. This will show you the available shipping options and costs for each method. You can experiment with adding or deleting products to see how shipping charges are impacted.
Tracking Numbers—After your order has been processed and ready to ship, we will email you a shipping confirmation that will include tracking information. Please make sure you enter a correct email address when you place your order.
Flat Rate Boxes—The US Postal Services offers flat rate envelope and small, medium and large flat rate box services. If you choose Priority Mail as your shipping option, we will attempt to fit your order in one of these standard packages if doing so will reduce the cost of shipping. If your order fits in one of these boxes, we will refund excess shipping charges back to your credit card. You do not have to ask for this consideration -- we check it automatically on all orders with Priority Mail as the selected shipping method.
SmartPost—SmartPost is a shipping service for residential delivery that combines FedEx Ground with USPS last-mile delivery. FedEx picks up packages from our distribution center and transports them to your local Post Office. The USPS then delivers the package the last few miles to your home.
Media Mail—Media Mail is a very economical way to ship books and DVDs. Often these rates are lower than any other rate. However, a package is not eligible for Media Mail if it contains items other than books or DVDs. If your order contains only eligible items, you will be offered the Media Mail shipping option. Please note that Media Mail is slow and can take anywhere from one to three weeks. If shipping to the western half of the US, allow up to three weeks for delivery.
Parcel Post—We will occasionally use Parcel Post for shipments of light weight but oversize items. Items subject to shipment by Parcel Post are noted as such in the description. Other than for these items, we only offer Parcel Post shipping on special request. Parcel Post is virtually always more expensive than our FedEx Ground or Home Delivery rates. In addition, Parcel Post can add two to three weeks to the delivery time. As a result, we only offer Parcel Post on special request.
Limitation on Acids and Cleaners—Test acids and many of the coin cleaners we sell may only be shipped by ground transportation per shipping regulations. As a result, only ground shipping methods will be shown for orders that contain any of these restricted products. USPS shipping options are not available for these items.
