Currently, all of our shipments are through UPS, USPS or one of several Trucking Companies. When selecting standard shipping, Lightworld.com has the right to determine which carrier will be used. If a Product cannot be shipped via USPS or UPS, we will use a Trucking Company. Additional Charges may apply. We will contact the Customer with these charges for approval before the Order is Shipped. Priority mail will be used for all PO Box shipping addresses.
If the item cannot be shipped via UPS Ground, then the Free Shipping Does Not apply. For instance, There is no Free UPS Ground Shipping to Alaska, Hawaii or Puerto Rico. We will contact the Customer with the Updated Shipping Charge. If UPS charges an Oversize package, then we will charge that rate to the customer in addition to the quoted price. We will contact the customer when an Over-Size rate applies before charging & shipping. We also offer Overnight (UPS Red) and 2nd Day Delivery (UPS Blue) at additional charges.
UPS Red: UPS Red features fast, reliable delivery to every address in all 50 states and Puerto Rico. They (UPS) guarantees delivery by end-of-day the next business day depending on destination.
