OUR SHIPPING POLICY

Same day shipping

Most orders placed before 3PM mountain time are shipped out the same day. FedEx Overnight, 2nd day and Express Saver requests must be placed by 2PM mountain time.

Shipping Within the USA

Standard shipping options for all U.S. addresses are your choice of FedEx Ground, FedEx Express, U.S. Postal Media Mail and U.S. Postal Priority Mail.

Free Shipping in Continental US on retail orders over $75 is by standard mail for residences and FedEx Ground for commercial addresses. Free shipping does not apply to wholesale orders.

USA Shipping Methods

FedEx Ground is a fully trackable and fully insured service with times and costs about the same as Priority Mail. We recommend FedEx Ground for all shipments as your package is guaranteed to arrive on time and in good condition.

FedEx Overnight, 2nd day and Express Saver requests must be placed by 2PM mountain time. As all FedEx services, it is fully trackable, insured, and guaranteed to arrive on time in good condition.

Media Mail is very unpredictable. We've seen mail packages cross the country in 2 days and other take 2 weeks to cross town. Postal shipments are untrackable and uninsurable (regardless of what the post office says). Do not choose media mail if you are in a rush. You may get lucky, but if it doesn't arrive as soon as you expect there is nothing we can do about it.

Priority Mail is just a little bit more predictable than standard mail. Typical shipping times are 3-4 days to the west coast or mid-west, and 5-6 days to the east coast. However as it is still untrackable and uninsurable (regardless of what the post office says); if it does not arrive on time there is nothing we can do about it.

Other shipping methods are available on request. Please note your request on the comments section of the checkout form, or call (970) 726-5111 or e-mail orders@ACtechbooks.com.

Your order may be shipped on your own FedEx account. Please note your request on the comments section of the checkout form, or call (970) 726-5111 or e-mail orders@ACtechbooks.com.

APO and FPO military addresses are considered U.S. addresses regardless of the country in which you serve. Please enter United States as your country and your APO/FPO zip code in that box.

International Shipping

Standard International shipping options and costs are displayed on the checkout page once you have entered your order. Please note that many countries charge various taxes and duties when you receive your order. These taxes are NOT determined or collected by us and so are NOT included with your shipping total at time of checkout. If your shipment can be marked in some way to help with these matters, please let us know in the "comments" box of the checkout page.

We strongly recommend FedEx for all international shipping. Choosing FedEx shipping is the only way to guarantee your order will be successfully delivered. International postal shipments are NOT trackable or insurable and so the successful delivery of your order can not be guaranteed. If your international postal shipment does not arrive or is damaged entroute there is nothing we can do about it. You would have lost your money. Aircraft Technical Book Company WILL NOT replace merchandise lost or damaged in the international postal system! Orders over $200 which are paid by credit card can not ship postal. If you want your large order to ship postal it must be paid for by wire transfer, check or money order (see payment options below).

Freight Forwarders are a safe and economical method of shipping larger orders (typically over 50 kg). If you do not currently use a freight forwarder, please ask us to recommend one which serves your area.

Your order may be shipped on your own FedEx  account. Please note your request on the comments section of the checkout form, or call (970) 726-5111 or e-mail orders@ACtechbooks.com
