Shipping Information

USPS (United States Postal Service)

Please note USPS does NOT guarantee package delivery in a specified timeframe for Domestic Ground Advantage (formerly First Class) or Priority Mail service ("1 Day", "2 Day" or "3 Day" when checking out and printed on the shipping labels) - they are STRICTLY ESTIMATES.

Once we turn a package over to USPS (United States Postal Service), we have no control over how USPS routes or prioritizes package delivery. If a package goes into the USPS "black hole" (i.e. tracking information does not get updated for several days or longer), there is nothing we can do. The packages are not lost but rather being held at a USPS facility or in a tractor trailer somewhere waiting to be processed. On a positive note, most USPS packages do eventually emerge from the "black hole" and get delivered.

** International Customers **  If your package is shipping via USPS First Class International, please note USPS will usually route your package to their international shipping facilities in Hackensack, New Jersey or Jamaica, New York.  Please don't be alarmed if the status shows your package appears to be "stuck" in one of these locations.  It is not unusual for packages to take 7-10 days before they start moving again.  Again, we have no control over this.

UPS (United Parcel Service)

Please note - UPS 2nd Day Air and UPS 3-Day are NOT guaranteed delivery services at the present time.  UPS has suspended delivery guarantees for these services.  In general, these service do have shorter delivery timeframes than UPS Ground service; however, UPS will not provide a refund or other compensation in the event a package takes longer than 2 or 3 business days to be delivered (refer to link earlier in this paragraph).

Like USPS shipping options, once Slot Car Corner turns over a package to UPS, we have no control over how UPS routes or prioritizes package delivery.

While more expensive than USPS Ground Advantage, it has been our experience that UPS delivery timeframes are more consistent than USPS delivery timeframes for a given shipping option/service and tracking information is updated more frequently.

Thank you for your patience and understanding.
