Shipping Charges for Online Orders
We do our very best to ship your gear quickly and package it exceedingly well. TOTAL PRICE ON YOUR SHOPPING CART INVOICE DOES NOT INCLUDE SHIPPING. SHIPPING CHARGES ARE ADDED WHEN WE SEND YOUR ORDER. We do not charge for handling and packaging cost. Our shipping costs reflect what we pay to send your order to you.
The Fifth Season standard shipping is FedEx ground. We will be happy to ship 2nd Day or Next Day at your request. These express shipping methods increase freight cost dramatically, so please keep this in mind when you order. (We will be happy go give you a quote if you wish to email us firstname.lastname@example.org or phone 530.926.3606 10am to 5pm Pacific Time.) Please note that any installation and tuning tasks may require up to 72 hours to complete.
You will note that one shipping option when you submit your online order is "I will pick up in Mt. Shasta"...convenient if you plan to be in Mt. Shasta to collect your new gear, and in this case, there is no shipping charge at all. Please let us know, in the comment box, the day you plan to be in town, so we can have everything ready and waiting for you.
