one sydney road is not responsible for service transit time. transit times are provided by the carrier (USPS or UPS) and may vary with package origin and destination, particularly during peak periods. all orders are shipped via UPS or USPS. all shipping costs are determined by the weight of the items purchased, the method of shipping chosen and the destination address.

customers will receive notification via email from either USPS or UPS, depending on the shipping method selected, when domestic shipping labels are prepared and printed. if you do not receive this email within 2-4 days after placing your order, make sure to check your junk/spam mail folder or contact us. your delivery confirmation number (from USPS) or your tracking number (from UPS) will be included in the email.

please note that the USPS delivery confirmation service is not an actual tracking number, but rather simply shows when the label was printed and when the item was delivered at its final destination. we therefore strongly urge all customers to carefully consider their shipping option in relation to the final destination. UPS with signature confirmation is strongly recommended for larger, urban areas.
