Shipping charges are based on carrier rates calculated by distance and weight / volume. Unique Photo makes every effort to apply these charges accurately. Transit times vary depending on method selected and transportation variables, such as distance or remote destinations. Whereas we strive to send out orders in a timely manner, most clearing our warehouse the same day as placed, other variables such as payment screening or inventory issues may cause a delay. For any question or concern with your order, we invite that you contact our customer service team, so that we may research the issue, and help resolve any problem.
