Christmas shipping information
Here are the suggested ordering deadlines to ensure that your Christmas purchases get to you in plenty of time for the big day, whatever part of the world you live in.
US Postal Service within the US:
FIRST CLASS MAIL : DEC. 17
PRIORITY MAIL: DEC. 18
EXPRESS MAIL: DEC. 22 (Check your local Post Office)
Please note that Express Mail is the only USPS service that guarantees the delivery date.
US Postal Service International:
First class mail international – 5 to 21 business days – Dec. 2nd
Priority mail international – 6 to 10 business days – Dec. 10th
Express mail international – 3 to 5 business days – Dec. 15th
Delivery dates with these services are not guaranteed as customs can delay packages and that is out of anyone’s control.
United Parcel Service:
UPS does not give specific dates but here is our best approximation: Basically, UPS Ground shipments (our free shipping method for tracks) take up to 6 business days depending on distance from our warehouse to the customer. If you’re within a couple hundred miles of Los Angeles it typically gets there next day. A state or two away might take a couple days, and so on. A shipment to the East Coast might take a week, perhaps more if Christmas shipping volume is exceptionally heavy. UPS does not guarantee delivery dates. Customers should account for 2 handling business days before order is shipped ( We almost always ship in 1 day but we’re being careful) and their distance from Los Angeles. You can use the www.UPS.com time and cost calculator to see the expected delivery date based on shipment date. If you have special needs please call our warehouse at (310) 676-7600 or e-mail email@example.com for further information.
Thanks for shopping with us!
