Shipping & Delivery
Domestic: We ship most of our products with USPS Priority Mail. This is a 2-3 day service. We generally use "signature not required". Due to their size, we may choose to ship gas meters and enclosures by USPS Parcel Post.
International: We will ship anywhere in the world that USPS is able to go via USPS Priority Mail International. Please allow at least 1 to 2 weeks for international shipments to arrive. In an effort to minimize our environmental impact, we primarily use crumpled newspaper, or recycled packing materials, to pack our products into boxes before shipping.
