Mendingshed.com does add a charge to orders to cover shipping costs. We have worked hard and invested many tiresome hours trying to make these shipping charges as minimal as possible. However, Mendingshed.com does offer a 5% discount on orders with a subtotal of $55.00 or more if you place the order online. This offer is not available on orders placed by phone. To receive this discount, simply enter the keyword "save5" in the coupon code / promotional code field on the order page. This field is located just below the credit card information fields of the order page. Only orders for $55.00 or more will receive this discount. There are some things you can do to make shipping more inexpensive. The most effective way is to choose the proper shipping method for your purchase.
USPS Priority Mail is a fast, inexpensive option for any item weighing less than one pound. For heavy items, UPS Ground is the better choice.
To experiment with shipping costs, you can select a shipping method and proceed to the order screen to calculate your total without any obligation to complete the order. You can then click the "back" button on your browser and try a different shipping method to see its cost. You can do this as many times as you like until you find a shipping cost and method that works best for you.
We ship with various methods from The United States Postal Service (USPS) and UPS. Each of these methods are described below.
International Orders - We are only able to ship to Canada, There is only one option for shipping to Canada, and the packages will be sent through the USPS system. The USPS estimates that it will take 2-3 weeks for delivery.
USPS Parcel Post- This is our slowest but often cheapest shipping method. This mail service is not guaranteed to arrive at any specific time. It can take up to 2 - 4 weeks for delivery.
USPS Priority Mail- The Postal Service's Priority Mail option is inexpensive for lighter packages and is very fast. Priority packages usually take two to three days and deliver nationwide, including Saturday delivery. Priority Mail shipments are not guaranteed to arrive within a specific timeframe.
UPS Ground- UPS Ground is a good shipping method for heavier packages and they have a guaranteed delivery schedule (refer to UPS map below).
UPS 3-Day Select- This is an express shipping method that guarantees delivery within three business days (not including Saturdays or Sundays) of shipment. Depending on location, UPS ground may be just as fast (see map below).
Most orders usually ship within 2-3 business days. Some exceptions may apply. Please contact us with any questions.
USPS Priority Mail is our bang-for-the-buck champ. You can expect your Priority package in 2-3 days (no Sunday delivery) but Priority Mail is not on a guaranteed time schedule. USPS Parcel Post can be as fast as three days and as long as two weeks and Parcel does not follow a guaranteed time schedule. 3-Day Select is guaranteed to arrive within the specified time (excluding Saturdays, Sundays and holidays). UPS Ground is also guaranteed and follows a delivery schedule according to the map below (no weekend delivery).
