CB World Shipping and Return Policy
Orders that total more than $75 have an option for free shipping (excluding over-sized items). When free shipping is chosen for an order, the order will be shipped via UPS Ground or US Mail. Generally, it will be whichever method is cheaper and/or offers faster transit times. Free shipping is only available for orders shipping to the continental United States.
We offer several antennas that are too large to ship via UPS. These items can only be shipped via USPS. You will notice that there is only one shipping option available during check out for these over-sized items. Also, these items need to ship separately from other otems that you may want to purchase. In that case, please place a separate order.
We offer several items that are considered hazardous for shipping, including lithium-ion batteries. There are oftentimes limits to shipping quantities and methods of shipping. In some cases, these items can only ship via ground transportation and may have a longer transit time to their destination. Due to shipping requirements, we may need to change the selected shipping method.
We are only able to ship on "business days", Monday - Friday. We are unable ship on weekends or holidays including the Day after Thanksgiving and Christmas Eve, as UPS and USPS do not pickup on these days. We make every effort to ship orders placed by 2:00 PM Pacific time the same day. Orders placed after 2:00 PM or on a weekend or holiday will be shipped promptly the very next business day.
Please note that transit times will vary based on the selected carrier and we cannot guarantee their services. Check carrier websites for transit estimates and days of operation which can affect time in transit.
We do not currently ship internationally.
