Please note that we generally ship via UPS Ground, unless specified otherwise on your order. UPS Ground shipments can normally take 1-5 business days in transit, depending on the destination. During November and December, this transit time can be delayed a further 1-2 business days due to UPS network congestion and weather- related issues. For up-to-date transit information from UPS, visit ups.com/ctc. Enter 91754 in the Ship From zip code field and your destination zip code in the Ship To zip code field.
