At 42, we believe in honest shipping rates and no hidden fees. Unless an item is specified 'free shipping', shipping will be calculated exactly by package weight, dimensions and destination.
When placing an order you will be able to choose the shipping method which best suits your needs. Default shipping will be calculated by the rate chart above. You will have the option to choose any method better than default.
Flexible shipping options are also important if you live on the other side of the US. For example, if you live in California your default shipping will be UPS Ground. You may choose USPS Priority Mail at a similar shipping rate. 42 is located in MD, so a UPS Ground shipment to California will take 4-5 days to arrive. USPS Priority Mail takes 2-3 days to arrive.
Transit times are completely dependent on your location. We have listed the basic transit times of our shipping methods in the table above. USPS transit times are loosely quoted. It is not uncommon for a USPS shipment to take a few extra days. The more organized your local postal service, the better. UPS transit times are typically very reliable. You may reference the following UPS ground map to estimate when your order will arrive.
Faster shipping options are also available. You may choose UPS 3 Day Select, UPS 2nd Day Air or Next Day Air when checking out. Rates are calculated based on package weight, dimensions and destination.
Always double check your shipping address. If you provide 42 with a bad shipping address your order may not arrive on time and/or may be returned to sender. 42 is not responsible for additional shipping costs associated with shipping an order twice.
Transit times are NOT guaranteed by 42. You, the customer, and 42 are at the mercy of USPS and UPS. We do our best to ship orders placed before 1pm EST the same day. Once an order ships, transit time is no longer our responsibility.
USPS transit times are quoted loosely. It is not uncommon for USPS to take additional time to ship a package. This is based entirely on your local postal service. The better organized your local postal service, the faster your order will arrive.
UPS transit times are typically very reliable. Like USPS, it is not uncommon for a package to be delayed at the local hub. If you are concerned about the arrival of your shipment, be sure to track the package during the day to catch any exceptions or problems. You may call 1-800-PICK-UPS to discuss pickup options if there is a problem with your shipment. Additionally, some UPS drivers may not drop off a package without a signature. Some UPS drivers will leave a package on your doorstep is no one is home. This is entirely based on your local hub and driver. We do not specify 'signature required' when shipping packages with UPS.
