USPS 2 Day Delivery ‘Guarantee’
The USPS shipping times that are published on their website, are pre-Covid shipping times. Due to Covid delays, shipping times can take 0, 1 or 2 days longer than what is published. Their ‘guaranteed’ 2 day delivery time may or may not reach you in 2 days.
Obviously I have no control over what happens to a package once it leaves my hands. If you pay 60.00 for 2 day delivery and it takes longer than 2 days to get your package, please don’t blame me.
If you’ve paid 60.00 and don’t get your package in 2 days, I will make another trip back to the post office and request a refund, less some USPS handling fees, and I will refund what I get, back to you. So you will get most of your 60.00 back and your package in maybe 3 days or 4 days.
The cost for standard shipping of a USPS Priority mail box, with insurance coverage, is 20.00 and you pay for shipping. I can safely pack two watches, inside their own watch case, into one USPS Priority mail box. The 20.00 will be added to the price of your watch at the time it’s ready to ship. This shipping method may get the package to you in 2, 3 or 4 days (depending on how far away you are from Los Angeles).
If you want the package with a guaranteed delivery date (like in 2 days instead of 3+), then add 40.00 to that: 60.00 total.
So my standard shipping policy is: the customer pays for shipping, either the standard 20.00 (with insurance) or 60.00 (with insurance) if you want a guaranteed 2 day delivery time.
10.00 Low Cost Shipping Option
If you don’t care about receiving the watch case (which requires the larger shipping box) and want to save on shipping costs, I can ship your watch in a smaller USPS Priority mail box.
I can only fit the watch itself into this smaller box (I can get two in if necessary), so you have to give up receiving a watch case to put your watch in (see Watch Case photo below). The shipping cost for this smaller USPS Priority mail box, with insurance, is 10.00. Depending on how far away you are from Los Angeles, shipping times will take from 3 to 5 days. If you want your watch sooner than that, then this is not the shipping option for you.
For shipping outside of the US, I have to add that to the cost of the watch as well. At this time the only affordable method to ship overseas (that I am aware of) is via USPS and they charge 40.00 (plus insurance for 5.00) for a small box. However, due to Covid 19, there are many countries that USPS is not currently shipping to. Please check the USPS website to see if your country is Covid 19 black listed at this time.
The other shippers (FedEx, UPS and DHL) are shipping to many countries outside of the US, but their shipping fees are insane. Well over 100.00 and up to 237.00. If you know of a lower cost international shipper please let me know.
