Shipping Policy

SHIPPING IN A NUTSHELL will accommodate any shipping requests when possible. This includes, but is not necessarily limited to International and Express shipping. Throw anything our way, and we’ll see what we can do!

  • We ship Monday - Friday, excluding holidays.
  • Most orders ship within 1 business day, and usually no later than 3 business days after the order is placed.  
  • Anything ordered after 4 pm PST on Fridays, will likely ship the following Tuesday.
  • Backorders do happen occasionally and may delay shipment.  We will notify you as soon as possible if this does happen.
  • When shipping express, please be sure to add handling times to expected delivery time.
  • If your order is time sensitive, please contact us to confirm we can meet your needs.


Generally we ship via FEDEX Ground and USPS, depending on the size of the item.  However, we reserve the right to ship via any shipping service.  If you have a preferred shipping service, please contact us so that we may accommodate you. 

Most orders typically ship within 1 to 2 business days of order placement. Please add this handling time on to your expedited delivery date if an expedited shipping service is selected. Occasionally your part may not be available to ship out right away. If your order will take longer than 4 business days to ship out, will notify you via email about the delay. If we do not receive a response regarding the delay, we will process the order normally as soon as it is ready to ship.
