BCW evaluates the best options for shipping your hobby supplies. For small parcels, UPS Ground or FedEx Ground are our normal shipping options, as these services have a good balance of speed, cost and reliability.
To send parcels at a better rate, BCW now offers UPS SurePost. This service is ideal for shipments under 10-lbs. sent to residential addresses in the 48 contiguous United States. SurePost orders leave the BCW warehouse with UPS, but the shipment is given to the US Postal Service for final delivery.
Using this hybrid delivery system offers a great shipping price, but there are some limitations you should consider before selecting your shipment method on a BCW order. First, when using UPS SurePost, the parcel is not trackable. Second, a UPS SurePost parcel is insured for $100 while the package is with UPS. After the parcel is given to the USPS, the insurance is no longer valid. Third, UPS SurePost normally takes one day longer in transit compared to UPS Ground, however the US Postal Service delivers on Saturdays so you may benefit from UPS SurePost. If the US Postal Service’s lack of tracking or insurance, or the delivery time are not acceptable for the delivery of your order, you should not select UPS SurePost as your delivery method. UPS Ground and other options are available for receiving your BCW Supplies’ order.
