Orders are typically shipped within 24 to 48 hours of receipt, & are primarily shipped via UPS or the US Postal Service (USPS). Transit time for all shipping methods do not include weekends or major holidays.
Shipping rates are calculated & displayed during the checkout process. The exact rate is determined by UPS or USPS according to the total weight of your order & the method used to ship your order. All orders are subject to a handling fee (UPS: $4.00, USPS: $1.00) which is included in the shipping charge.
In general, most in-stock items are ready to ship from our warehouse within 1-2 business days from the time your order is placed. Transit times are listed below in a chart outlining the various shipping options. Please note that the timelines given are estimates & vary by order destination. Sundays & federal holidays may affect transit times as well. Hardwick & Sons is not responsible for delays caused by UPS or USPS.
