SHIPPING

Shipping for do-it-yourself kits

Selecting ground shipping

Please remember to allow 1-2 business days processing time before we ship your order. Also, we do not ship on weekends and they do not count in processing times. Business days are Monday through Friday only. If your address is residential, you are required to select the Home Delivery option. If you do not select the Home Delivery option and your order is shipped to a residential address, the additional charge for this service will be added to your order. Delivery times vary throughout the USA. Most locations are 5 business days or less.

Selecting overnight, 2nd day and Express Saver (3 day) shipping

Selecting one of these options does not necessarily mean your order will arrive in 1, 2 or 3 days. Please remember to allow 1-2 business days processing time before we ship your order. Also, we do not ship on weekends and they do not count in processing times . Business days are Monday through Friday only. Express shipping will also only deliver Monday through Friday. Note: We will use the best shipping option available (air or ground) to get your order to you within the promised time frame.

Shipping for "We Assemble" orders

Your order will ship or mail after the turnaround time you select for the order. Turnaround time for regular orders is 2 weeks from the date you place your order. Turnaround time for rush orders is 4-5 business days from the date you place your order. (Please remember turnaround times may be extended if we do not receive your text, approval or guest list in a timely manner.)

Mailing service - Mailed directly to Your guests option

Bottles that are mailed directly to your guests are sent via the US Postal Service, First Class Mail. They are not trackable on our website tracking system as this is an option for Federal Express deliveries only. First class mail times vary around the country and from post office to post office. We suggest allowing upto 14 days for delivery to your guests from the date your bottles are mailed. USPS does not consider First Class Mail lost until 14 days from the date of mailing has passed. While we send out thousands of bottles each month, occasionally a bottle may be lost in the mail, as with any other mail. If this does occur and is not the result of an incorrect address, it is our policy to send a replacement to the same address free of charge.

Shipping to You

Ground shipping: If your address is residential, you are required to select the Home Delivery option. If you do not select the Home Delivery option and your order is shipped to a residential address, the additional charge for this service will be added to your order.

How much does shipping cost?

When you enter your order, the website will give you costs for each shipping option. For international deliveries, if you do not select a shipping method, we will choose the least expensive for you. You do not need to enter a credit card to view this information. For the mailing service - directly to your guests option, postage cost is included in the price.

Damaged or lost shipments

We are not responsible for shipments damaged or lost by Federal Express, USPS or any other carrier. We will do our best to assist you if this happens, but replacement items will incur new charges including shipping charges. For international shipments, the recipient is responsible for all customs charges or delays.

Signature for Delivery

We do not require a signature for delivery, but your local driver may do so. Delivery requirements are beyond our control and we are unable to take responsibility for any delay in delivery. If the driver leaves your package without a signature, we are not responsible for damage or theft of the package.

Tracking

You may track your items shipped via Federal Express through our website. Orders mailed via USPS First Class Mail cannot be tracked.
