Shipping Address and Method Accuracy

Please verify the shipping address is complete and correctly provided. Any deliveries sent to a wrong address provided cannot be recovered. The shipping address submitted is the address items will be shipped to. Walt Evans Decorators, Inc., also known as, paradefloatstuff.com is not responsible for missed or misdirected deliveries due a customer providing an incorrect address. Walt Evans Decorators, Inc will attempt to contact the customer if a discrepancy is easily recognized.  

Walt Evans Decorators, Inc. is not responsible for a improperly chosen shipping method.  Please insure the UPS shipping method allows ample time for order processing and delivery if the order is time-sensitve. 

Delivery Times

Expedited shipping methods do not affect our order processing time. However, expedited shipping will shorten the time it takes for UPS or US Mail to get your order to its final destination once it is picked up from our warehouse.

The following example illustrates this concept: An order is placed on a Thursday at 10pm with UPS Next Day Air. Using the UPS pickup and delivery schedule, the earliest the shipment would be available for pickup is on Friday then out for delivery on Monday – the next business day.  Please see map below to determine the number of business days a shipment would take to arrive at your destination, shipped via UPS Ground.

Shipping

We ship via United Parcel Service and United States Mail Monday through Friday. Your order will generally be shipped the SAME BUSINESS DAY if it is received by 11:00 am, Eastern Time. Orders received after 11:00 am Eastern Time will be shipped the following business day. Refer to United Parcel Service shipping calendar at www.ups.com for holiday shipping schedules if necessary. Orders placed over the internet are pooled with telephoned orders in the order received. Shipping & Handling for Regular UPS Ground shipments within the 48 Continental United States is the least expensive method, although United States Priority Mail may be even less expensive. With exception to the Christmas Holiday season, UPS shipping methods are guaranteed to deliver based on UPS schedules. United States Mail is NOT guaranteed. Alaska and Hawaii residences will pay actual shipping rates (ZONE RATES). Your shipping price is based on the packed weight and box size required to ship your order. Regular ground UPS shipping only applies to residential and commercial customers living within 48 Continental United States. UPS Shipping options such as, Next Day Air, 2nd Day Air and 3rd Day Select can only be used to guarantee shipping delivery date. We do not charge fees for Handling, Delivery Confirmation and Freight Insurance. E-mail shipping questions to orders@paradefloatstuff.com.

Free Shipping

Orders over $100 shipped to the contigous United States qualify for FREE SHIPPING.  This does NOT mean orders over $100 automatically will be shipped free.  The Free Shipping method is a choice among other methods such as Next Day Air, 2nd Day Air, 3 Day Select or various United States Mail methods.  If a customer takes advantage of the Free Shipping method the choice must be made during the check-out process.  Orders placed with the Free Shipping method may be shipped via UPS Ground or United States Priority Mail. The factors that dictate which carrier is chosen are based on package size and weight, customer location and potential deadline.

ParadeFloatStuff.com will NOT refund shipping on all future orders because the Free Shipping method was not chosen.  We will assume the customer chose UPS Ground and ship the order accordingly.

International Shipping

We do ship orders internationally on a limited basis.  Our website has the capability to take international orders from Canadian customers.  For customers in other nations, it is best to communicate via email so we can obtain the best shipping methods and make sure orders are delivered in a timely manner with reasonable shipping costs.  International customers will be responsible for shipping costs, all duties and taxes and any other product or shipping related fees specific to individual international shipments.
