Shipping

We do not make a profit on our shipping. We charge enough to cover our costs which include insurance, packaging, and the labor involved in filling out the necessary documentation. We ship only via FedEx and USPS. We offer alternative shipping methods within these carriers but additional fees may apply. If extra charges apply, you will be notified prior to order confirmation. If you would like to use a shipping carrier other than UPS or USPS, we will work with you to coordinate your shipment through the carrier. You will be responsible for all fees incurred for the alternate shipping method.
