6 Things You Need to Know About Shipping
In this Amazon world, you expect your package to be delivered fast and during any day of the week, but often this type of shipping service is not available to the rest of us.
Here are six things you need to know about shipping to plan for your delivery. With our fast turnaround, this will help you know when your transfers will arrive.
1. Speedy Air
Speedy Air is an exclusive shipping service available to those customers in the continental US, who do not receive a ground package in 2 working days.
Transfer Express upgrades your package at no additional charge—you pay ground and get 2-day air service. And no prime membership is needed!
2. Delivery Days
Delivery days for UPS are Monday thru Friday, excluding holidays. This means if you are shipping a package Next Day Air on a Friday, it will arrive on Monday.
3. Saturday Delivery
To receive a package on Saturday with this premium service, you must ship Next Day Air on a Friday and upgrade to Saturday delivery.
Saturday Delivery is a premium service not available in all areas. Be sure to check the UPS service areas to see if this service is available to you.
4. Delivery Times
UPS offers morning and afternoon delivery service, but the time is based on your delivery area.
The Next Day Air Morning guarantee is only available to commercial addresses.
If you are a home business and select Next Day Morning, UPS may deliver by noon of business day depending on your address.
5. Shipping Payments
To try to give you the lowest shipping cost as possible, we wait to charge your card until the order ships. That way, if you have multiple orders in-house, orders scheduled to ship on the same day can be grouped together for one shipping price instead of multiple.
Be sure your card has room on it for the payment, so it is not declined. Because of the times that cards are charged at shipping, there is often not a lot of time to get an alternative card in the event of a decline. We don’t want your order to be delayed so help us help you by being sure your card will be good to go on shipping day.
6. LA Hot
For our customers who work in the greater Los Angeles area, UPS offers a special service called LA Hot.
Packages shipped from our Arizona facility will arrive in 1 working day.
Great tip about making sure that your shipping choice has your card information. That way you can make sure that you don’t default and lose your item. I’ll have to choose a courier system that uses online transactions.
