Shipping Information

Unless otherwise specified, all goods will be shipped by UPS surface freight, pre-paid and charges added to the invoice. All domestic freight charges are invoiced at prevailing UPS rates plus insurance. The customer may specify alternate shipping (e.g., Next Day Air, 2nd Day Air, 3-Day Select), at time of order for additional charge. If a UPS package arrives damaged please call 1-800-631-0300 and speak to a live customer service representative who will immediately rectify the situation. Pallet Freight Damage: Any and all damage claims must be made with the responsible carrier. Claims must be made by you. Unique Photo cannot initiate claims on your behalf. For export orders outside of the United States, Unique Photo is not responsible for local custom regulations or charges. Please check with your local customs office to determine if duty will be added to your order. All goods shipped within the United States are duty free.

Any change to your UPS shipment can only be authorized by Unique Photo. Please contact Unique Photo if you need to make any change to your delivery.

Free Freight (USA & Canada): When an item is designated to ship free, or is marked "Includes free shipping" that particular item is disregarded in the calculation of freight. If that item is the only item on the order and within the 50 United States and Canada there will be no ground shipping charges applied to your order. Free freight designation allows Unique Photo to chose the best shipping method for your order, whether UPS or USPS. All post office (USPS) orders can take up to 9 business days to get to the destination but in most cases are about 3-5 days transit time.

Again, please pay careful attention to the rules and duty regulations in Canada and other countries. Unique Photo cannot estimate your duty if you are outside of the United States and is not responsible for any extra duty you may incur.

Unique Photo strives to ship all orders the same day Monday through Friday. Orders received after 5pm EST Friday might be processed the following business day. Unique Photo offers real time stocking information to help you with your purchasing decisions.

FREE SHIPPING: We offer free shipping (2-7 Day delivery) for this item when ordered through our website. Delivery must be within the contiguous United States and to APO/FPO/DPO addresses in order to qualify. Additional item(s) in your order that do not qualify for free shipping will cause you to be charged a shipping fee for those ineligible items.

Orders that are eligible for free shipping and are up to $349.99 will ship via USPS. Orders that are eligible for free shipping and are over $350.00 will ship via UPS Ground. In some cases, your item(s) may be upgraded to UPS Ground or like service.
