You can trust that your order will be quickly processed and safely delivered. When completing your order you will be asked to check a box stating that you understand that there is a 3-5 day processing time. We try to get orders processed the day it comes in. But due to the COVID virus. Things like supply and delivery issues has slow things down some. Things are getting better. But we have had the USPS tell us that late deliveries could be out as much as 30 days. We have found UPS is the most reliable and on time with less damaged to shipments. But we ship with UPS,FEDEX and USPS. This choice is left to your customer.

Please understand that the days shown to receive is only an estimate.

So if you are ordering 2 Day Air on a Friday. You would receive it on the next Tuesday. They do not count weekends or holidays. So if it shipped on Friday. The Monday is counted as day 1 and Tuesday is day 2 the delivery day.

If you are shipping 1-Next Day Air on a Friday then you would receive it on the next Monday.

If the order is time sensitive I would put in Notes or Memos on your order. The information that you would like to say. And I would follow with a email to with your order number and the needs you have. And call 815-537-4444  to show your Urgency. Remember we try to get all orders out the day it comes in if possible.
