The United States Postal Service (USPS)and FedEx are our primary shippers within the US. For Domestic FedEx shipping costs and USPS internationally, we use a price based shipping method that is estimated in the shopping cart that reduces, the more you purchase. Spreading shipping cost over more products reduces shipping cost per item. Consider adding items to an order to add to your overall savings.
USPS orders usually ship the same day if it is placed before 11 AM, MTS. Otherwise the next business day or most Saturdays for USPS. FedEx may add a day or two in some cases. Some items may ship from one of our suppliers or drop shippers and will ship per their shipper and timeframe.
For US Orders:
SlideWright ships domestically with an $8 Flat shipping and handling rate for orders up to $100 via USPS Priority Mail or Parcel. For orders over $100 the shipping is FREE for USPS shipping. (U.N.O.= Unless Noted Otherwise as exempt). FedEx is charged at a reducing rate, the higher the purchase costs.
For most orders, USPS Priority mail is the quickest and most cost effective method. USPS Priority, within the continental United States shipments tend to arrive in two to three business days, including Saturdays after they are shipped. FedEx Ground can take up to a week or more.
For International Orders:
SlideWright ships globally via USPS Global Priority Or Express Mail International. The store shipping estimator charges an average shipping cost relative to our large range of items, costs and weights and may not necessarily be accurate relative to the items in your cart.
The estimator cannot differentiate between small vs larger items or light vs heavier items AND determine in which Shipping Box size they will fit AND changing costs by country. Therefore, each international order is reviewed relative to the weight based, USPS International Postage Calculator for current USPS rates plus $2 for shipping, form inputting and handling. We will reimburse shipping overages when possible. For large and heavier items it may be necessary to request additional payment to help cover most of any excessive shipping costs to us from the shipping company.
The best International value for small items is using the Small Flat Rate boxes (5-3/8” x 8-5/8” x 1-5/8”) or Flat Rate Envelope (12.5" x 9.5"). The next best International value for larger items is using the Medium Flat Rate boxes that cost the same up to 20 lbs. We will do our best to maximize Flat Rate shipments to reduce costs, including repackaging when practical.
