Shipping Services/Method - Canada and U.S.A.
FiveStar ships most orders via FedEX or in some cases we may elect to ship using the United States Postal Service (USPS). We offer the following standard service types:
- We will determine the best possible shipping method for your particular product. Most shipments will be shipped using FedEx ground where available. This will be a 3 -5 day service
- For faster shipping options, please do not hesitiate to contact us directly for alternative methods
- In rare cases we will ship via USPS or Canada Post, you will be contacted in these situations
keep in mind the above transit times do not include the number of days it may take to process your order and choosing express shipping options (i.e. Air Service) does not reduce the processing time. Process time depends on inventory levels and availability of product.
If you have special shipping needs or would like us to ship using your UPS or FedEx account number please communicate your needs to us in the Comments/Special Instructions box that is displayed upon checkout or you may e-mail us prior to placing your order at: email@example.com and we will try our best to accommodate your requests!
