another manufacturer, such as strollers or furniture. Items that are
large or heavy may be drop shipped directly to you from the manufacturer

notice.If the free shipping icon is not displayed on the product page in the price area then it does not qualify. Most products do qualify.

welcomed back existing customer. DAYS IN TRANSIT
The amount of time before you receive your purchased products is determined by the shipment method and the location of your shipping address from our warehouses in Washington State. Please be advised that time in transit begins and is calculated to start from your ship date as noted by your receiving of a shipment confirmation and/or tracking number email. USPS does not provide a tracking number to customers but rather a confirmation. USPS PRIORITY MAIL AND 1st CLASS MAIL PACKAGE
Take approximately 2-3 days on domestic U.S. shipments. UPS Ground takes a little bit longer (please refer to chart below for time period). These shipping carriers are the most efficient method to get your items fast and at a low cost. Packages of light weight or smaller items usually show it to be faster and less expensive to ship via USPS. Larger and heavier packages will usually be more economically sent by UPS Ground.

Please inspect your merchandise upon receipt and report any damage immediately to us within 48 hours. Our statistics show that very rarely shipments are damaged. If by chance the box has been damaged causing subsequent damage to the product, please retain the shipping box for proper proof and contact us and the shipping carrier to make a claim and provide the required information.
It is important to realize that the more you buy the less the shipping cost as a percentage of the total. This is because there are many items that don't add any or little additional charge for shipping. Many of the items are so light weight and compact so they do not incur extra freight amounts and we pass on the savings to our customers. This means that a few more items added to your shopping cart should not add much more in the way of shipping fees. We pass on our established excellent freight contract rates to our customers.

PROPER ORDERING WHEN MILITARY ORDERS ARE ACCEPTED
Military Overseas Addresses
Following these steps will ensure that you're charged the correct shipping amount and that your order will be delivered in a timely manner. When registering your address for payment on our site you will enter as your "billing Information" the same address within the U.S.A. where your credit card statement are mailed on the credit card you are using. Then enter the "shipping Information" of the overseas military location, including, if applicable: the Military Base name, Unit Number, Box Number, or USS Ship name. Enter the city, state, zip code according to the guidelines below
HOW TO COMPLETE THE SHIPPING INFORMATION FOR MILITARY PERSONNEL & FAMILIES:
Regardless of where the recipient is stationed, select "United States" as the Country.
Select in the "Shipping Information" section at checkout the country as United States and choose the state as either AA, AE or AP.
AA (Armed Forces of Americas)
AE (Armed Forces of Europe)
AP (Armed Forces of Pacific)
Enter "AA" if the recipient is stationed in the Americas. "AE" if the recipient is stationed in Europe, Canada, Africa, or the Middle East. Enter "AP" if the recipient is stationed in Asia or the Pacific. All shipments to APO (Army Post Office) or FPO (Fleet Post Office) addresses are sent via U.S. Priority or First Class Mail. The Military handles the delivery once the packages arrive at the designated AA, AE or AP address, and from that point the delivery is subject to the military delivery schedules. We estimate 5 to 7 business days for delivery once the order has been shipped; however, some destinations may take up to 21 days. We automatically calculate your shipping charge which is the same as domestic U.S.A. rates. Once you have approved the total cost, including shipping charges, payment can be made. Certain over-sized or heavy items cannot be shipped to these addresses.
ORDER TURN AROUND TIME
We always strive to ship orders in a timely manner. Typically, orders will need processing time of 1 to 2 business days and a little bit longer for over-sized, over weight or drop shipped items.
We always try our best to make sure your order gets where it's going in a reasonable amount of time. Of course, there are some things that are beyond our control like weather, delivery error and international shipping schedules. Regardless of the reason for the delay, we will do our best to help you as best we can. Contact us with any concerns or problems.
