At Buymetal.com we try to prepare your orders within 24 hours.
buymetal.com orders are usually shipped by FedEx and you can use the FedEx zone map to estimate arrival time. This map is for Ground service, and if you need it sooner, we offer expedited options, including Next Day Air.
For orders that are too heavy or too long to go FedEx Ground, buymetal.com will quote you a FedEx Freight shipping rate. Keep in mind, FedEx cannot ship to a PO Box so please make sure your "ship to" address is a street address.
Buymetal.com does not offer international shipping except for Canada (flat rate is not applicable).
