All items are shipped either USPS, Fed-Ex or UPS ground which typically takes between 3-5 working days, depending on where you are in the country. USPS Priority Mail is usually cheapest and generally takes 3-5 mail days, including Saturdays. USPS & UPS will generally leave packages whether you're home or not. Fed-Ex may make you sign for the package unless you have made prior arrangements with them. We cannot ship to a PO Box. If you live on an island It's a pretty safe bet I will not be shipping UPS Ground. All Hawaii, DR, Purto Rico, and Alaska Orders are shipped US-mail.
We drop ship the product to you from the manufacturer
Their factories and distributors usually ship Fed Ex or UPS Ground, which is usually 4-5 days across country (less if you're close to them), and they usually turn our orders around in 2 days. Even with expedited shipping, it can take them a couple days to put your skates together, they usually get orders out 2 days after the order. Vendors will not ship to PO Boxes either.
APO / AP Addresses
RDD can't ship skates or rookie packages to an APO/AP address for $25, When someone buys skates or a rookie package from RDD the manufacturers drop-ship
the skates directly to the customer and they will not ship to an APO/AP address, So as a service to our APO/AP customers we pay to have them
shipped here ($18) then the cost at the post office to send the package to an APO/AP address is $45. Unfortunately Paypal does not offer a way
to distinguish an APO from a domestic address within their cart system. The TOTAL shipping cost for a rookie package sent to an APO/AP address is $63 of which $25 is charged at time of order... I will email a link to pay
the $38 ballance or refund your APO/AP order.
We tried this but someone was always pissed cuz something didn't get there in time and it was out of our hands once it ships so we just try to stay away from the whole "I should have ordered yesterday thing".
Custom orders ALWAYS take longer
If you order a custom skate it WILL takes a few days longer to build before it even ships.
How much do you charge for shipping?
We try to ship with USPS which has proven to be cheapest, the shipping cost is calculated automatically based on your ZIP Code, size and weight of package being shipped, we lose money on shipping more than not. For UPS Ground shipping, it will normally run between $7 and $20 depending on size and weight.
Do you ship to unconfirmed PayPal addresses?
Yes, we do. We have not had a problem with this so far, so for now we are accepting them.
Do you ship Internationally?
We have been known to ship internationally to Europe and Canada for our sisters across the pond and to the North. Anything is possible, contact us with your shipping needs and we will do our best to ship whatever you need, to wherever you need it. However, we can NOT pay import/export taxes, tariffs, or brokerage fees, imposed by foreign governments for the shipment of products into their countries. If you live outside of the USA the full responsibility for those or any other fees if they apply, will be yours alone.
How soon do you ship?
If your order is placed before 12 Noon CST we can normally ship the same day on all in stock items. If you order after hours, or on a weekend your order will ship the next business day.
