People often ask us at TSS-Radio.com how long it will take for an order to arrive. Since we offer several different shipping options the answer to that question depends on which option you choose. Here are the shipping options we offer and the general shipping time frames.
TSS-Radio Free Shipping (any purchase over $70 qualifies for free shipping)
Free shipping ships out from Chicago via UPS Ground. UPS Ground can take anywhere from 1-5 business days depending on where you are located within the United States. Check out the UPS service map below.
We also offer UPS expedited shipping options. We offer Next Business Day Air, 2nd Business Day Air, and 3rd Day Select. UPS does not offer weekend delivery, so please factor in lag time if ordering late in the week.
USPS Postal Priority Mail
Our most common shipping option is USPS Postal Priority Mail. Priority Mail generally takes 2-3 business days, but can often be a few days longer depending on where you are located or during heavy volume times of year. Postal Priority is an affordable, quick option for small items. Postal Priority also ships out Monday-Saturday, so if you are ordering late in the week, it is a quicker option in many cases.
UPS Mail Innovations
UPS Mail Innovations is a hybrid service between UPS and the United States Postal Service. Packages shipped by Mail Innovations leave TSS-Radio via UPS, travel to a nearby location to the destination address, and are transferred to/delivered by the Post Office. Although this option is very inexpensive, it also has the longest wait time. Packages shipped by Mail Innovations generally take 7-10 business days to arrive, but can take up to 2 weeks depending on your location. Mail Innovations is a great, inexpensive option for customers who want to pay the least amount possible for shipping but who are not in a hurry to receive their item.
Canadian Shipping Options
We offer a few different shipping options to our Canadian customers. The quickest option is UPS Worldwide Expedited. Worldwide Expedited packages generally only take about 2-3 business days to arrive. We also offer options from the United States Postal Service. Express Mail International typically takes 3-5 business days where as Priority Mail International can often take 2-3 weeks.
