SHIPPING RATES

Instruments / Cases / Dulcimer Stand / Books & Recordings / Accessories / Strings

Effective January 1, 2016 

Due to the significant increase in shipping cost we regret that we can no longer offer a flat rate for shipping instruments, cases and stands. In order to make it as fair as possible, we will charge the cost of shipping based on your shipping zone. Please note that these amounts do not include the cost of packaging, insurance, or the additional fees and surcharges imposed by UPS and USPS; we will still continue to absorb these costs.

UPS rates are now based on the dimensional weight of the box instead of the actual weight. This results in a significant increase in shipping costs for instruments. In a few cases, USPS will offer a less expensive shipping option, but bear in mind that UPS Ground delivery normally takes from 2 to 4 days whereas USPS can take up to 10 business days for Standard Parcel rate shipments.   In general, we ship large parcel shipments (instruments, cases, stands) on Fridays.

For Alaska, Hawaii and all other destinations, please call or email for rates and zones.

We prefer to ship via UPS and will do so unless you specify otherwise
