We are working to provide more timing information on ordering time and shipping time available but that's probably a late July addition.
General rule is Orders received by 1 PM ET Monday - Friday are normally shipped that day if using USPS Priority, First Class or International Shipping Services via Postal. Orders received by 2:00 pm ET via FedEx Ground are usually shipped the same day and Express FedEx Services have until 4:00 pm ET. Or, feel free to call or email if you have special requests or urgent needs.

USPS Priority Mail - We have integrated the USPS shipping calculation software and all our beach balls and supplies are weighed to provide more fair and balanced shipping calculations. These are postal service rates based on your address and selection. Any questions, just let us know.
Flat Rate from USPS - All of our beach balls are rated by volume to determine if they will fit inside a Medium or Large Flat Rate box. This could really save some shipping costs for many. If they fit, this will be an available selection during shipping. Flat Rate calculation is only available for USA destinations only at the moment.
FedEx Ground Services - This is probably one of the best methods for customers on the eastern half or most of the US and even Canada. Please review the Ground transit time map to the right. Beachballs.com is located in Delaware (East Coast US) and can ready the Red and Light Blue sections in 1 to 2 days. Orange is 3 Days, Green 4 and Purple is a bit longer at 5 days.
FedEx Express Services - Best guaranteed services if date sensitive. Overnight is next day with usually two services such as Priority and Standard. FedEx Two-Day is just that. Express Saver is usually a 3 Day transit.
How Long does it take to receive my beach balls?
Shipping services deliver in 1-6 business days within the United States. Larger items, larger orders, or unusual items may require an extra day. If you need a beach ball by a certain date, please let us know especially if it is a day away. We certainly understand those last-minute urgent needs.
What if my beach ball arrives damaged?
Please inspect all packages upon receipt. If an item arrives damaged, contact us immediately at 302-628-8888. We will do our best to satisfy the situation. Shipping adjustments vary depending on circumstances. Incorrectly supplied shipping addresses, are usually returned via Postal Service and, if not claimed, credit is applied to card used to purchase only. Shipping costs are not refunded.
Please inspect all packages upon receipt for shipping damage, missing or incomplete items. If you have questions, contact us at 302-628-8888 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
