All orders are shipped from our warehouse in Grand Rapids, MN. Orders placed Monday through Friday by 2:30pm Central Time can usually be shipped the same day. Orders placed after 2:45 CST or on weekends (or holidays) are usually shipped the next business day. In the rare event that an item you ordered is out of stock, we will contact you. During the checkout process, our shopping cart system can usually estimate the date upon which you should receive your order, and posts the approximate arrival date after the shipping method name. If you do not see this date when you are checking out, you can generally expect domestic ground shipments in 1 to 5 days, and express shipments should adhere to their title (Next day Air = 1 day, 2nd Day Air = 2 days, etc.) Once you complete the checkout procedure, our website will send a confirmation email that your order has been placed. Please look for this message immediately, and if it arrives in your "junk mail" folder, please make sure you add smrsoftware.com to your list of allowed senders to ensure you receive further communications from us. We cannot be responsible for shipments that do not arrive before any deadlines you might have.
Once your product(s) has shipped, you will receive a shipping confirmation email that contains a tracking number for your order. Please be aware it may take several hours after the time we ship your order before tracking information becomes available at the shipping company's web site.
We normally ship orders via UPS for domestic surface orders. For orders which are to be shipped by express methods such as next day or 2nd day, we will use UPS or FedEx at our discretion. We expect to be able to offer you a postal service option in the near future. While our web site can calculate international orders, we can sometimes find better rates for you. If you are having your order shipped outside the continental US (48 states) feel free to contact us using the on-site form to inquire about other shipping options.
We do not ship to P.O./A.P.O/F.P.O Box addresses
