Shipping Policy

RainmanWeather consistently strives to provide the best prices available, or even allowed by the manufacturer in many cases, and we do not believe in "hidden charges" when it comes to shipping. Our standard carrier is UPS Ground. The shipping rates are the standard UPS Ground rates based on the weight and location of the shipper and receiver, along with any special handling charges that may apply. Shipping charges for all orders will be shown to you before you finalize your order. Our site is linked directly to UPS and our actual shipping charges are applied.

RainmanWeather ships via UPS to all addresses within the United States (including Alaska, Hawaii, and Puerto Rico). We also offer service to Alaska, Hawaii, and Puerto Rico via USPS Priority Mail. We are unable to ship orders Internationally or to Freight Forwarding locations in the US at this time.

Occasionally we receive a request to use an alternate carrier such as USPS for domestic shipments. We are happy to comply if possible on a case by case basis. Please submit your request in the notes of the order (We DO read them!) or Contact Us with your request. We also offer USPS as a standard option for selected items at our discretion where the smaller size and weight make it a more economical option.

RainmanWeather will ship your order within 24-48 hours on business days after it is placed with us. Usually orders placed by 3:00pm Eastern Time zone will ship the same day, and we are often able to ship orders received as late as 5:00pm the very same day! (excludes weekends and holidays, which ship the next business day). Same Day shipping applies to UPS orders only, USPS orders for in stock items will ship the next business day after receipt. UPS Ground shipping generally will take 2 to 5 business days to arrive. See our UPS Shipping Zone Chart for expected delivery time for your area. Standard delivery time for USPS Priority Mail is 2-3 days and may be longer for some locations.

Tracking information for your order will be provided to the email address on your account at the time of shipping and will also be available in your account order status.

On the rare occasion that an item is out of stock, you will be notified by email of the expected delay.

Your order may be delayed if there is an issue with the credit card name and address security confirmation.

All orders are screened for fraud and other irregularities. We reserve the right, at our sole discretion, to refuse or cancel any order for any reason.

In some cases the shipping may be directly from the manufacturer or a distributor, which is another way we work to save you both time and money.

Depending on your order, it may be shipped in separate boxes, and they may be delivered at separate times.
