Frequently Asked Questions

Q: What expedited shipping services do you provide?
A: If you need an order urgently or have it delivered on a specific date, you can always select UPS Second Day or Next Day shipping options. Please keep in mind that there is order processing time* and UPS does not deliver on Saturdays, Sundays or public holidays. Therefore, if your order is placed on Wednesday to Friday, there is a chance that the second or next business day is the following Monday. You will need to place your order accordingly. We encourage you to contact us if you are not sure which shipping option to choose.

For Example
UPS Second Day shipping:
If shipped on a Wednesday, the order will be delivered on Friday of the same week, by end of day.**
If shipped on a Thursday, the order will be delivered on the following Monday, by end of day.**
UPS Next Day shipping:
If shipped on a Thursday, the order will be delivered on Friday of the same week, by end of day.**
If shipped on a Friday, the order will be delivered on the following Monday, by end of day.**
