We offer USPS and UPS as standard shipping options for our customers. At checkout, there will be a list of available shipping options with the prices after you enter your address. Your address is required because otherwise the shipping interface does not know where you live and cannot estimate the pricing. The available options will change somewhat depending on the shipments weight and destination. Obviously International customers will be offered International shipping options.
Our headquarters is based in Providence, Rhode Island, ZIP code 02903.
Domestic Shipping Options:
USPS First Class
USPS quotes 5-10 business days for First Class shipping delivery. Our experience is that it will get there in 2-5 depending on how far away you are from Rhode Island. First class is only applicable to orders under 13oz. Heavier orders will ship via Priority Mail.
USPS Priority Mail
USPS quotes 1-3 business days for Priority Mail delivery. Our experience is that this is very accurate, except for the very rare package that goes missing. Priority Mail also includes $100 of built in insurance.
USPS Priority Mail Express
USPS guarantees 1-day delivery for Express mail shipments. This can be a very cost-effective option compared with UPS Overnight (red). Express mail shipments must be placed before noon to go out the same day. When shipping overnight delivery, feel free to call the shop to make sure your package is going to ship- 401.475.4755.
UPS gives very accurate delivery times based on your ZIP code. Check UPS Website for their guaranteed times. The map below shows delivery times from Modern Device to you with UPS Ground Shipping. It is the most economical UPS shipping option.
UPS Air is the quickest, and most reliable shipping method regardless of destination- but is the most expensive as a result. Please note that the Early AM option for both 2nd Day Air and Next Day Air are only available to Non-Residential addresses. If you select the Early AM option we will send it the normal grade you selected, and refund you the difference.
International Shipping Options:
- USPS First Class Intl: 10-15 Business Days
- USPS Priority Intl: 7-10
- USPS Express: 3-5
- UPS Saver/Worldwide: Check UPS Website for guaranteed delivery times.
It is important to mention that USPS does not track packages going First Class International once they leave the United States, so if a package gets lost they are depressingly bad at lending any sort of assistance in resolving the issue. Residential addresses are not eligible for UPS’ Early AM services- if there are any mixups in the shipping selections we will be sure to contact you ASAP and correct them.
To prevent the possibility of fraudulent orders, we ask that our customers avoid using international mail forwarding services unless they are associated with a business, institution, or organization. Such services are typically used by scammers to mask their shipping addresses and are not regulated to provide customer protection.
