UPS. We do not use Fed-Ex or any other shipping companies.
UPS delivers Air and Ground packages Monday thru Friday (normal business days). There is no package movement on Saturdays or Sundays. If you place an online order and expect it by a certain time, please follow these guidelines by UPS:
You cannot count the day the package is ordered or weekend days (Saturday and Sunday) as days in transit. For example, an order that was placed for 2-day shipping on Friday at 3 pm (Eastern Time) will not be processed by us until Monday (because it was placed after the daily cut-off time which is Noon Eastern Time). The order will not start its 2-day time in transit until Tuesday. According to UPS’s shipping schedule, Tuesday will be the 1st day and Wednesday will be the 2nd day. Therefore, the package(s) will arrive on Wednesday.
With UPS Ground shipping, about a week (at least 5 normal business days). Please do not count the weekend days as “shipping days” per UPS Guidelines, there is no package movement on Saturdays or Sundays. Please see UPS’s Shipping Schedule for more information regarding how the package arrival date is determined. (Question #4)
