Other Shipping Q&A
When I place an order when will it ship?
Mid-September through mid-April, we ship Monday-Thursday. We do not ship on Friday, Saturday or Sunday. Warm weather shipments are only shipped Monday-Wednesday.
What is a warm weather shipment, and does it only apply during the summer?
A warm weather shipment is a shipment sent to a warm weather destination, which could be year around (Florida, Arizona, etc.), or a shipment sent during spring and summer months when temperatures are warmer across the country. During the months of April through mid-September, all orders will be shipped Monday through Wednesday. Because of warmer temperatures, we do not ship Thursday through Sunday. We may on occasion delay your shipment a day or two depending on how hot the weather might be in our part of the country or its final shipping destination.
