Customer Service - Delivery and Shipping
To calculate when you will receive an item, you need to consider the manufacturing time required for the items you are ordering as well as the shipping time. If your order includes several items with different production times, you should consider the longest production time in your order.
For example, chairs and backwashes on our site show 2 weeks production time. Consider an average shipping time for U.S. and Canada shipments 15 to 40 business days, depending on where you live. This means your total delivery time will be 2 weeks (manufacturing) + 15 to 40 days (shipping time). So you can expect to receive this item at your front door about 4 to 10 weeks after you place your order.
For air freight delivery please email us at email@example.com for more details (remember to include your address and the items you'd like to order). The price for air freight deliveries can range from 10 to 25 % or more than standard seafreight shipping, depending on destination and volume / weight of the goods. Delivery times range from 7 to 15 business days, depending on where you live.
