The reality is that for us every day is crunch time. Many of you will place orders with the expectation that they will go out the same day see http://www.vtarmynavy.com/help_desk.htm. We do not claim same day shipping and if you look at our shipping policies we say that many orders take 2-4 working days to go out see . We try to do things faster than that -- you know "the old under promise and over perform" but many items have to be brought in and many of our suppliers are scatter in far off parts of the country.
So if we see you place an order with faster than ground shipping and it will take time to ship we still email you with the expediting option so that you can get it quicker if need be.
So if you are in a hurry when will expediting help? Expediting added to an order of one item or coming from one manufacturer allows us to send the item directly from the manufacturer. It covers the "drop ship fees" that most manufacturers charge for direct shipment.
It does not however affect the days in transit. So if you are looking for a guaranteed shipment of two days you want to stay with 2nd day shipping or if you need it in a day even if we are in your area you would want to go with next day air for overnight delivery.
It also does not help later in the day most orders have to be placed by noon to get out the same business day.
So it you put 10 items together from 6 manufacturers expediting does not help and will be taken off.
We here at Barre Army Navy Store want your experience to be quick and happy but understanding the frame work will certainly help. Questions call 802-479-2289.
