Orders are typically shipped within 24 to 48 hours of receipt and are primarily shipped via UPS or the US Postal Service (USPS). Please see our international orders page for international rates and delivery times.
Shipping rates are calculated and displayed during the checkout process. The exact rate is determined by UPS or USPS according to the total weight of your order and the method used to ship your order. All orders are subject to a $2.50 handling fee which is included in the shipping charge.
You may view shipping options and estimates prior to starting the checkout process by clicking the Estimate Shipping link next to the checkout button on your shopping bucket page. Please note that you must have at least one item in your shopping bucket in order to view shipping estimates.
The delivery time of your order is determined by the time it takes to assemble your order and the amount of time your order is in transit. In general, most in-stock items will ship within 24-48 hours. Below is a chart outlining these options. Please note that the timelines given are estimates and vary by order destination. Hardwick’s is not responsible for delays caused by UPS or USPS.

P.O. Boxes and APO/FPO Addresses
Please note that UPS does not ship to P.O. Boxes and APO/FPO addresses. Because of this, we are only able to ship to a P.O.
