Deadline for Guaranteed Christmas delivery is December 17. Here Is What You Can Do After That.
Shipping gifts can get a little overwhelming as Christmas draws near, even for us. In order to keep our word on getting your gifts delivered by Christmas Eve, we need to set a deadline. After the December 17 deadline, we no longer guarantee that your gifts will arrive on time. But we WILL still do our best, even if you are running a little late. In the last several years, we have been able to accommodate the vast majority of late orders. Following is how our ground shipping times work:
West Coast and Bordering States – 4 day shipping. Must be shipped by Monday 12/18
Mountain States, Arizona, South Texas, and Florida – 3 day shipping, Must be shipped by Tuesday 12/19
Midwest and East Coast – 2 day shipping. Must be shipped by Wednesday 12/20
Ohio and Partial Bordering States – 1 day shipping. Must be shipped by Thursday 12/21.
Saturday delivery is also available on MOST residential deliveries. So that even gives you an extra day. But again, it is not guaranteed. The following map illustrates these shipping times
The following expedited shipping methods are also available at additional cost. They increase your chances of delivery before Christmas, but do not guarantee we will be able to send it on time. Again, we will do our best.
FedEx Express Saver – 3 days
FedEx 2nd Day – 2 days
FedEx Overnight – 1 day
FedEx picks up from our location daily at approximately 3:30 PM. If you get your order to us by 12:00PM, we may be able to get it out the same day. Also, we have a local fulfillment company assisting us with shipping Gift Boxes #1-5, and they have a later pickup time. So if you order Gift Boxes #1-5 with no additional items, you have a better chance of your shipment going out the same day.
So your best bet is of course to place your order before the December 17 deadline. But if you don’t, don’t despair. We’ll still do our best to get your gifts there on time. Order online, or give us a call.
