Shipping/Transit Times - Shipping time estimates may be obtained from each shipping company’s website (USPS: www.usps.com ; UPS: www.usps.com). AirlinersInScale ships from US Zip Code: 64068. AirlinersInScale does not, express or implied, guarantee any transit times or delivery dates. Any shipping times stated are estimates only.
AirlinersInScale has no control over any package shipped once it leaves our warehouse and goes into the possession of the shipping company, thus AirlinersInScale does not bear any responsibility for any late deliveries or any damaged or lost packages. However all packages shipped via UPS or USPS are insured. We will assist in the completion of any and all valid insurance claims. Any insurance claim determination is made solely by the shipping company and/or their designated insurance company. AirlinersInScale does not have anything to do with determination of any insurance claims.
Additionally, please be aware that the US Postal Service does not offer any guarantee for transit times/delivery date for any of their services except for Express Mail. And that the transit time/delivery dates listed by the USPS are estimates only (and appear to be based on ideal conditions which does not happen most of the time, especially in the winter).
Hazardous Items - Certain items (such as some paints and glues) are considered hazardous and can only be shipped via a ground method. These items are clearly noted.
Special Delivery Requests - Special delivery request such as, but not limited to: delivery time (such as “only delivery in the AM”), delivery location (such as “leave on front porch” or “leave with neighbor”, etc), can be made however we have no way to direct or require a delivery driver to comply. Delivery drivers handle all packages within the policies and procedures of their company (UPS/USPS/etc). AirlinersInScale does not accept any responsibility for any requests of a delivery company/driver that such driver/company does not comply with.
What is Surepost by UPS? The UPS SurePost service provide the convenience of UPS shipping and USPS-delivery to customers' mailboxes. UPS determines if UPS or the USPS completes the final mile of delivery of each shipment. Delivery time is approximately 1 to 2 days longer than regular UPS Ground. Surepost can also deliver to PO Box addresses.
The simplest way to think of how SurePost works is that UPS will transport and deliver your package to your local post office (instead of to you directly), then your local post office mail carrier will deliver it to you with your regular daily mail delivery unless UPS decides to deliver the package instead.
