Shipping

 

Please note: All information below is accurate at the time we posted this page. We try to keep everything as current as possible, but UPS and USPS do not inform us directly of changes in their shipping, so there may be changes since our post. Please go to their website for the most up to date information.



  • UPS will generally be used on packages 2-3 lbs and higher. Alaska, Hawaii, Puerto Rico, and foreign countries will be charged for actual shipping costs.
  • Due to the manual time and labor involved in following up on back orders, we will charge for shipping on all back orders. We won't charge anything for the product or for shipping charges until the time of your order. We will email you when your back order arrives and always give you the option of adding to your order.
  • You may request insurance as an added option that you would pay for. We encourage this; as neither the Post Office nor UPS will reimburse you for lost packages, or for damaged packages without insurance.
  • All unframed, posters, lithographs, and racing art, are shipped in high strength tubes.
  • All racing art and framed racing art are shipped insured.
  • In-stock slot car orders are shipped same day or next day (excluding holidays and Sundays)
  • Illinois residents will be charged 9% sales tax


Shipping Choices/Time Frames


Same Day Shipping: We will make every attempt to fill your order if received by 3 PM CT. We will email you and notify you that your order is shipped or let you know if we have experienced any problems.


USPS

First Class Mail provides a tracking number and offers service to most domestic destinations. This is not a guaranteed delivery option. Plus it is only available for very light weight orders such as car parts. The package including the box or shipping envelope cannot weigh over 13 ounces.

Priority Mail provides a tracking number and offers 1-3 day service to most domestic destinations. We ship our packages Priority Mail when we use USPS. This is not a guaranteed delivery time. Priority Mail can also be insured up to $500.

Parcel Post is not trackable and is the slowest of the three choices offered by USPS. We do not use Parcel Post as we have no way of tracking or proving that we have shipped your product. Please do not ask us to use this shipping method.


UPS

UPS provides a tracking number and is insurable up to any dollar amount.

Ground = 1-5 business days within the contiguous U.S.; 3-7 business days to and from Puerto Rico and Hawaii.

SPECIAL NOTE: Expedited shipping does not give you delivery on Saturday! Choose Saturday delivery if you need it on that day!

3 Day Select = Guaranteed Delivery in 3 business days. This is a good choice, BUT 3 Day Select is not guaranteed between Thanksgiving and New Years Day due to extra high shipping volume during the holiday season. You must select overnight or 2nd day to guarantee your shipment during the holiday season.

2nd Day Air = Guaranteed Delivery in 2 business days.

Next Day Air = Delivery to businesses and most U.S. Residences next business day, by 10:30AM. The Billing and Shipping address must be the same for UPS NEXT DAY SHIPMENTS for all new customers

Next Day Air Saver = Delivery to businesses and most U.S. Residences next business day, by late afternoon or early evening. The Billing and Shipping address must be the same for UPS NEXT DAY SHIPMENTS for all new customers

Saturday Delivery is available. This option shows Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday on our website. The Billing and Shipping address must be the same for UPS SATURDAY shipments placed on Thursday night/Friday for all new customers

Note: UPS will guarantee your package delivery on expedited shipping or refund the cost of your shipping. UPS offers up to the value of $100 of free insurance on items damaged during shipment. Please see the UPS website for full details; (this information is only on this page for general information; we do not represent this as all the details of the UPS insurance policy). The UPS link is at the bottom of this page. We will make every attempt to fill your order if received by 4PM CT; however this is not guaranteed. We will email you and notify you when your order is shipped or let you know if we have experienced any problems. Please give us a phone number where we can reach you if we have a question about your order! Sometimes, we have problems with the shipping address being accepted by UPS or USPS, or we may have questions that everything you ordered will work together and will try to call you to make sure that you have ordered the right items.



    The simplest way to know your shipping costs, is to go to the first page of the checkout process (before any billing information is entered); all your shipping choice options and prices will be listed for you.
