Most ground orders in the continental USA take between 1 and 5 business days in route, this does not include weekends, holiday or days UPS cancels shipping because of natural disasters (severe snow storms, flooding etc.). Due to the high volume of packages during the holiday season, and no ability to guarantee ground shipping please allow up to 7 business days for delivery.
