How is the shipping weight charge calculated for my order? Shipping weight formula is Total Product Weight + Product Packaging + Box and protective materials.
What is an Oversize charge? Products that are considered to be oversized due to the weight or dimensions of the shipping box will be shipped by Economy or Ground per requirements of the shipping service provider. An additional charge per oversized item will be added to the shipping charges due to the increase in cost by the shipping service provider for larger or heavier items.
What are the weight and size limits for shipping?
There are no limits to the total weight of your shipment or the total number of packages in your shipment. UPS regards boxes over 70 lb to be overweight. We reserve the right to ship orders over 70 lb + as over-weight. Free shipping does not apply to overweight orders.
What happens when I order a heavy or bulky item?
Certain products can only be delivered by truck. Online these products will be identified on the product page as “Shipping restrictions apply - Truck Only”. Your order will be processed, but placed on “HOLD” and a Customer Care representative will call you with an estimate of freight cost. Please allow additional time to process your order and scheduled delivery. Shipping service provider delivery dates may vary by region.
Can I ship my order to Alaska, Hawaii, PR or APO Addresses?
Yes. Please note that shipping times to PR, Alaska and Hawaii will take longer. Shipping charges to PR, Alaska and Hawaii are a result of increased cost from the shipping service provider.

Can I ship my order internationally? BirdSupplies.com is happy to accept orders from friends around the globe. Also note that select product lines may not be available for sale internationally and shipping rates and fees will vary depending on the delivery address of your order. While we are not responsible for securing customs clearance information, we may hold your order if we deterMine that your order contains item(s) that are known to have customs clearance issues. Australia and New Zealand most notably do not allow grain products such as many food items or natural grain supplements. Our sales rep will be able to provide you with additional information when you call to place your order.
Items from BirdSupplies.com can be shipped to several international regions, but cannot be shipped to portions of South Africa, some Island Nations, or the Middle East. We reserve the right to refuse any international shipment. Customer identity should be easily identified.
Your packages may be subject to the customs fees and import duties of the country to which your order is shipped. These charges are always the recipient's responsibility. NO exceptions.
Restrictions: Some items sold by BirdSupplies.com cannot be shipped internationally due to import restrictions or size; for example pet food, some perches and products containing animal by-products cannot be shipped internationally.
Limitations: For products shipped internationally, please note that any manufacturer warranty may not be valid; manufacturer service options may not be available; product manuals, instructions and safety warnings may not be in destination country languages; the products (and accompanying materials) may not be designed in accordance with destination country standards, specifications, and labeling requirements; and the products may not conform to destination country voltage and other electrical standards (requiring use of an adapter or converter if appropriate). YOU are responsible for ensuring that the product can be lawfully imported to the destination country. When ordering from BirdSupplies.com, the recipient is the importer of record and must comply with all laws and regulations of the destination country.
Customs, Duties, and Taxes: Orders that are shipped to countries outside of the United States may be subject to import taxes, customs duties and fees levied by the destination country. The recipient of an international shipment may be subject to such import taxes, customs duties and fees, which are levied once a shipment reaches your country. Additional charges for customs clearance must be borne by the recipient; we have no control over these charges and cannot predict what they may be. Customs policies vary widely from country to country; you should contact your local customs office for further information. When customs clearance procedures are required, it can cause delays beyond our original delivery estimates.

Thorough inspection must be made upon delivery and all damage noted on the delivery receipt. If an item is damaged, delivery should be refused and birdsupplies.com must be notified immediately. You are strongly encouraged to photograph damage. You must save all shipping and merchandise packaging.

Is expedited shipping available on all products?
No. If you must receive your order within less than 7 days, please call or text 719-650-0812 immediately.
Why does "Next Day" or "2nd Day" deliveries sometimes take longer than that to arrive?
Next Day and 2nd Day Air orders placed after 10 a.m. Eastern Time will not be shipped until the following business day. Next day air packages arrive by end of day on the first full business day after shipment, and 2nd Day air packages arrive the second full business day after shipment.
Placing your order late in the day, after the shipping service provider has picked up their last shipment, is one factor that can affect shipping time. As a rule, you can expect orders shipped Next Day to take 2-3 business days to arrive, and orders shipped 2nd Day to arrive within 3-4 business days.

*Economy shipping available to the 48 contiguous United States.
*Ground shipping available to the 48 contiguous United States and Canada.
