Shipping

 

My base shipping is first class mail and is flat rate

$3.75 for US orders, $10.99 Canada & $14.99 Worldwide

  ---  Faster options are available during checkout  ---

Order Fulfillment

Nearly all orders placed before 10:00 AM EST are shipped same day

10:00 isn't absolutely the cut off, but in general its a good rule of thumb

Tracking Information

Once your order has been processed, a tracking number is sent via email. If you do not receive tracking info within 48 hours, please check your Spam/Junk mail folders

Note: Some small orders will be shipped via first class letter post. These are typically orders of 1 or 2 keys, small belts and a few other items and these orders do not include tracking

Online tracking updates do not start until the order is actually scanned in by the postal service, so allow some lead time

The postal service is responsible for late shipments and does not guaranty delivery times on any of their services

Winter rules: It is not uncommon for long shipping delays to happen during the winter months. Bad weather can stall orders (including priority and express) for several days or longer

Friends, I have no control over the US Postal service. If your order gets hung up for whatever reason, I have nothing to do with it. So please don't take out your frustrations on me, write your congressmen or the postmaster general

Some Words on Shipping

I don't get very many emails regarding delayed delivery times or lost shipments, but when I do they tend to be from very anxious people

Please remember, once your order leaves my hands there is nothing I can do to alter it's course or speed it up

If you want your order to arrive quickly, use faster shipping! This isn't Amazon, if you want 2-3 day delivery. Then pay for priority service (just like Prime...), Its that simple

A final word

This is small a family run business, we are your neighbors and fellow hobbyists, if you need help with a problem, just ask I'll do my best to assist you

On the other hand, people who feel the need to rude, pushy, like to bully or just can't seem be courteous should shop elsewhere

I give everyone a fair shake, but the world doesn't revolve around you or me

In all fairness to both you and I, there are limits to what I can do for any one person, be reasonable and so will I

Address Related Order Problems

I regularly have cases of delayed, returned or lost orders due to customers either not keeping they're PayPal account information updated or supplying miss-spelt or otherwise inaccurate mailing addresses

It's your responsibility to keep their PayPal account address accurate and up to date. Likewise, customers using the PayPal check out system with a credit card must be sure they are supplying a complete and accurate address

If your order is returned to me for addressing reasons, you will be billed for the additional mailing costs to resend

If your order is lost due to an addressing problem, I will not be able to help find it, recall it or refund the costs

Bottom line: 25% of all orders I receive have some kind of small addressing error or improper punctuation. Re-Check your info, use proper spelling and grammar it really does count! Capitalize where required and don't abbreviate. It's your order and your money, isn't it worth getting it right?

The last word on delivery times for export orders. 

Even though all export orders are shipped via airmail, and while most orders will arrive within a week or two, there are going to be cases when delivery times will run much longer. I've even had a few cases when it's taken over 3 months. The reasons for delayed and returned shipments are typically incorrect or incomplete addresses or most often the customs office in the customers own country. What can do done about this? Well outside of being sure you are supplying accurate information, not much if you want to keep your shipping costs down to $6.99

Please, when placing your order understand that once I hand your order over to the postal service I have no control over when it will arrive. There is no way to track airmail packets, and no way to know when your order will arrive. These are just the simple facts (and risks) of export shipping. If your not comfortable with them, then please upgrade to the next level of shipping.  

Long delays are actually quite rare, and in over 20 years of shipping parts I've never had an order lost. So far they have all surfaced at some point. But I feel it's only fair that I explain the facts before you make your purchase with me.

If your order takes longer then you would like, please try to be patient. I've done all that is possible to get your goods there quickly, and now all you can really do is wait, wait and wait a little more.

An outline of typical delivery times by Country/Region

Canada: 10-25 days typical, delays are rare.

Central and South America: Expect a little bit slower service, I'd say 2 - 4 Weeks average. Some orders do arrive quickly, but it's just as likely to have it take longer.

UK: 10-25 days typical, but England is also the most problematic for addressing problems causing delayed and returned orders. Extended delivery times are possible, but not as a rule.

France, Netherlands, Germany, Switzerland and surrounding Western European area, Few problems, 10-25 days typical, Occasional customs delays in France & Switzerland.

North countries (Sweden, Iceland, Finland and so on): Few problems, 10-25 days typical.

Mediterranean: (Spain, Italy, Greece) Expect slow delivery, while many orders have arrived within 2 weeks, it's not uncommon for the customs office of these countries to cause delays of 2 to 3 months.

Western Pacific (Australia, New Zealand and Japan):  Typically very good with 10-25 days times.
