Our Same Day Shipping Guarantee

The Same Day Shipping Guarantee applies to orders placed Monday through Friday (excepting holidays) on all goods that are in stock at our store/warehouse and at our affiliated drop-ship warehouses.

Exceptions to this rule include scanners which are ordered with programming and firmware updates. Programming generally takes 7-14 additional days due to high demand; however, during holiday periods the time frame for programming may extend out further. Also, for coax cable orders, generally allow for an additional five days. On very rare occasions a product, particularly a very popular scanner or a specialty product that is produced in Europe, will go out of stock and we will not be able to fulfill this guarantee but we will do our utmost to fulfill the order as quickly as possible. Reminder, UPS Next Day Air is guaranteed for Next Day, however, UPS does not ship on Saturday and Sunday. So if you order for Next Day on a Friday it will not arrive until Monday. A different bill to ship to address orders may be delayed.

Same day shipping is only guaranteed with United Parcel Service (UPS):
UPS Ground, UPS Three Day Select, UPS Second Day Air and UPS Next Day Air.

We are not able to guarantee same day shipping with United States Postal Services (USPS).
