FedEx offers the flexibility of several shipping methods: FedEx Ground®, FedEx 2Day®, FedEx Standard Overnight®, FedEx International Priority® and FedEx International Economy®. FedEx will not deliver to P.O. Boxes or to an APO or FPO address.

United States Postal Service (USPS)

USPS shipments can be sent to P.O. Boxes and APO/FPO addresses. USPS offers only limited tracking information.

All available shipping methods and charges can be viewed and selected during the checkout process prior to entering payment information.

Flammable items can only be shipped by FedEx Ground services to the 48 contiguous states (excludes air services; ground to Alaska, Hawaii and Puerto Rico; international; United States Postal Service; and APO/FPO addresses). Flammable items are marked as such in the product description.

Products containing lithium-ion batteries cannot be shipped via USPS. Items containing these batteries are marked as such in the product description.

Currently, all shipping carriers may not be able to guarantee time in transit, and delays may occur.

In-stock orders are typically shipped within 1–2 days of receipt, excluding weekends and holidays (exceptions may be noted on individual items on the website). Kits may require additional time for custom design.

Available shipping rates may show estimated days to delivery. These are estimates and are from the date of shipping.

For air shipments (FedEx 2Day and FedEx Standard Overnight), the order cutoff time is 12 p.m. Eastern Time (ET) for guaranteed departure that day. Air services count only business days (Monday–Friday, excluding holidays), so if you place an order on Thursday before 12 p.m. ET and choose 2Day, your order will arrive Monday. If a FedEx Standard Overnight order is placed on Friday before 12 p.m. ET, it will arrive Monday.

During checkout, the expected number of days for delivery is listed. These are estimates only and are not guarantees. If an item is out of stock or built to order, it will cause delays in fulfilling the entire order.


FedEx Ground shipments can take 1–5 business days to arrive (3–7 business days to Alaska and Hawaii). Shipments to certain locations may require additional time in transit.

FedEx 2Day delivers on the second business day to most locations. Most deliveries take place Monday–Friday.

FedEx Standard Overnight offers guaranteed delivery on the next business day by 10:30 a.m., 12 p.m. or end of day, depending on destination. Most deliveries take place Monday–Friday.


USPS packages sent Priority Mail® within the United States generally take 3–10 business days for delivery. Packages sent USPS First-Class Mail® can take up to 2 weeks to be delivered.

Packages to most U.S. territories can ship either by FedEx or USPS. To see the rates, you’ll need to enter your address differently as outlined below. Some territories have similar weight restrictions by FedEx or by USPS. If a shipping rate cannot be calculated using either method, reduce the order size or separate the order into multiple transactions. If you are still unable to see a shipping rate, be sure your address and cart are saved on your account and email We can review your cart and address from your account to help determine how to see available shipping options.

FedEx requires a physical address for delivery. USPS delivers to P.O. Boxes or physical addresses. It is your responsibility to offer a proper delivery address for your area.

Puerto Rico is served by FedEx 2Day, FedEx Standard Overnight, FedEx International Economy and USPS. Enter your country and state/province as Puerto Rico to see available rates and options.

American Samoa, Guam, Micronesia, Virgin Islands (US), the Marshall Islands, the Northern Mariana Islands and Palau are served by FedEx International and USPS. Set the country in your shipping address to your corresponding territory.

FedEx International Shipments

FedEx International Priority typically delivers in 1–3 business days. FedEx International Economy shipments usually take around 2–5 business days for delivery.

For international commercial accounts, FedEx will automatically broker all packages unless otherwise requested. Sailrite will assume that FedEx will broker any package (often the fastest method) unless you specifically instruct us to use a different broker. To use your own broker, you must provide the broker name, address, phone number and email address. If you select your own broker, FedEx transit times are not guaranteed.

United States Postal Service International (Including Canada)

USPS delivery for international shipments typically takes 7–14 business days.

International Shipping Brokerage Fees & Taxes

Sailrite only charges for shipping and the order contents. There are no U.S. taxes on Sailrite orders shipped to destinations outside of the United States. Additional taxes, duties, local delivery charges and other miscellaneous fees at the destination are your responsibility. Each country’s customs agency treats orders that enter their country differently. Countries are at liberty to add their own estimated or published shipping charges for taxation purposes at will, regardless of what charges Sailrite notes on its invoice. Customs also may not take into account any discounts you may have received through Sailrite.

Sailrite is diligent to select appropriate tariff codes for products but cannot guarantee the codes listed on the commercial invoice will be the best (least taxed) for any particular country. Shipments are valued and insured at invoiced pricing. Valuation for purposes of taxation does include shipping charges (often required for international destinations).

Our FedEx International Priority and FedEx International Economy rates include FedEx brokerage fees. Duties, taxes and additional fees (sometimes classified as brokerage fees) may be incurred depending upon the country of destination and the item(s) ordered. Also, you may incur additional brokerage fees from your broker. 

Estimated Arrival Times

Please remember that shipping times are estimates, not guarantees, and that delays can be caused by customs in the receiving country.

Restrictions by Country

Due to international shipping rules and regulations, orders originating from Russia cannot be placed online. If you would like an order delivered to Russia, please send an email to with an itemized list of the products you would like to order. We will then create a custom order for you and verify that your order adheres to current shipping restrictions. Once we verify that your order does not contain any prohibited or restricted items, we will contact you to complete processing your order.

United Kingdom or European Union
Due to value-added tax (VAT) regulations for goods shipped to the U.K. or the EU, the minimum amount for orders to these locations is US$190. If your order is less than this amount, you will be unable to select a shipping option and, therefore, be unable to complete checkout.


Sailrite is unable to provide goods or services to Mexico. If you are in Mexico and would like to make a purchase, you must arrange to have the goods shipped to a freight forwarder on your own. Sailrite cannot assist in this process.


Due to the extremely high customs clearance costs and fees associated with abandoned shipments, we do not ship to Greece.
