All products shown in our Catalog are generally "In Stock" and ready for immediate shipment. Any Catalog items temporarily out-of-stock are usually available for shipment within a few days. All orders will be shipped complete, unless extreme delays occur in which the available product will be shipped and the balance of the order cancelled.
Most orders for In-Stock items begin the order process as soon as your online purchase is completed. Your In-Stock items will be shipped once the item is picked from stock, your payment is approved, and the receiving address is verified. You will be notified by email when your order is shipped.
After your order leaves our warehouse, delivery times vary according to the shipping method (generally UPS Ground) and the location of your shipping address. Please note that business days are Monday-Friday, excluding federal holidays within the United States.

When your order is delivered you should immediately inspect the carton for any potential damage that may have occurred during shipment.

It is normal for the carton to show some wear; however, if damage did occur follow the steps outlined under Returns & Warranties.
Tracking Your Order
When can you track your shipped order?
At our warehouse, tracking numbers are assigned to packages upon shipment and generally appear on an email that we will send you after your order has shipped. However, it may take up to 48 hours or longer before the package is checked into UPS's tracking system and available for tracking at www.ups.com. That means even though your package has already shipped from our warehouse and is on its way to you, UPS may not be able to provide any information about your package for up to 48 hours or more.
Occasionally, orders are delivered via a carrier that does not offer the ability to track a package. In these rare instances, the email to you confirming the shipment of your order will not offer tracking information, but will still offer order status and other details. Read the information provided below on this page to learn the difference between tracking information and the order status.
Finding your order status
The status of your order is easy to find.
How is order status different from tracking information?
The status of your order is supplied by www.theductshop.com, and represents what is happening with your order between the time you place it and the time it ships from our warehouse. Once your order leaves our warehouse, it is handled by UPS that may provide tracking information on their website www.ups.com until your order is delivered*. The tracking information is accessible from the email you receive confirming the shipment of your order.
*Tracking information may not be available for up to 48 hours after an item is shipped from our warehouse.
