40 Below Shipping Information
We ship our products worldwide, using a variety of different carriers, depending on your choice, and the most cost efficient for the order items, destination, and timing.
Usually we ship all orders to all 50 US States by the USPS Priority Mail. This is a fast and inexpensive method.
For bulky orders that include a number of items, or large in size such as the Tent Floor Foam, we usually ship by "Ground Service" from Federal Express or United Parcel Service for the 48 states. Shipments to Alaska and Hawaii can be shipped by UPS for these items, but the Priority Mail may be the most cost effective. We can compare rates for you and advise.
Fast orders for overnight delivery are most frequently shipped by Federal Express.
For International Orders to Canada and all other foreign destinations, we ship by US Post International Service, using either the "Express" or "Priority". Both are choices on the checkout page depending on how much time and cost. The "Express" service level usually takes about 5-7 business days, plus Customs processing time (usually 1-2 days) depending on your location, and sometimes it is even faster. The "Priority" service level usually takes about 6-10 business days, plus Customs processing time (usually 1-2 days). These have proven to be a dependable shipping method, and is typically the least expensive! They both have a tracking feature, so you can monitor the shipment, and does not charge an additional "brokerage fee" as is the case with other carriers.
In the Forty Below website shopping cart, the shipping choices are by the US Post. Please let us know if you have a different shipping requirement in the Comments Box of the check out pages. You can also contact us to discuss which method you might prefer for your situation.
