- Bulb Shipping Methods -

Suggested ways to ship you your bulbs.

SHIP INFO: I generally ship USPS mail. I'll ship DHL or FEDEX only if you provide me your account number to bill shipping costs to. Shipments usually take one extra day as I ship from a rural area; overnight deliveries rarely possible. Early Tuesday and Friday mornings are my scheduled shipping days. For other weekdays; add $20 and I'll make a special trip to post office (email me to see if my schedule allows for it); 2:30pm (California time) is cut off time.

USPS = United States Postal Service (post office)

- SHIPPING USA -
I recommend my basic $8 flat-rate* in which I'll ship your entire bulb order anywhere USA by my choice of shipping methods.

* flat-rate prices include everything! Shipping, handling and insurance / guaranteed delivery. (Flat-rate doesn't apply to oversized shipments; which I will special quote after receiving order. Bulbs longer than 30 inches in length will be oversized.)


I ship everywhere in the world!

USPS Airmail Parcel Post is the least expensive shipping method in which a package can be insured. Otherwise, USPS Airmail Letter Post without insurance usually costs about half as much. I've been lucky so far - none of my packages have ever been lost.

Customs clearing time using USPS depends on your country. I've seen some deliveries go straight through, while a few have taken 6 weeks... Average Custom clearance wait is from 1 day to 2 weeks.
United Kingdom: I'm noticing most AIR PARCEL POST shipments often are taking 5 weeks to deliver; where most AIR LETTER POST packages delivered in about 1 week.
I will email you a firm shipping quote after you submit your website order reservation.

Add my $5 handling fee.

In USA, I recommend shipping using my cheapest basic $8 flat-rate* (see above) which covers your entire order no matter how many bulbs you buy! If you want quicker delivery then I recommend USPS PRIORITY MAIL (with or without) insurance instead.

Outside USA, I recommend USPS Airmail Parcel Post with insurance on expensive orders. Otherwise, if you know your country's mail system is reliable, you can try to save money by having me ship USPS Airmail Letter Post without insurance; but remember you have no recourse for lost packages that aren't insured. My postmaster DOESN'T recommend shipping without insurance to most Central & South American countries.
