RF Parts Ships to any country
- How shipping costs are calculated.
RF Parts determines its shipping costs based on zip code groups that fall under "zones." RF Parts is located in San Marcos CA, which is in San Diego. Immediate surroundings is "Zone 2" and it expands throughout the US all the way to "Zone 8" The price of shipping starts at a flat cost and increases according to weight of the products being ordered.
The saver shipping method is mainly shipped out using USPS. to keep the cost low for this shipping method there are limitations on which orders can use this method. The weight limit for this method is 2 pounds. and the price limit for this method is $400.00. After 2 pounds most orders will not fit in the given USPS box and we have to use a custom box size to ship the order. The basic shipping methods are only insured up to $400.00, and in the case of an order going above $400.00 in the best interest of the customer we have eliminated this shipping method, in the worst case scenario your package is lost or severely damaged, you are covered under the default $400 limit.
Standard shipping method is calculated based on weight vs destination of the customers order. the more a product weighs, the more it costs to ship to you. Location is the next biggest factor in determining price of this method. Since we base our shipping prices on zip code ranges, if you live in a rural area, or in a further zone, the cost of shipping increases. The standard shipping method is a very safe, reliable, and efficient way to get your order to you in a timely manner.
2-Day and Next Day shipping methods are calculated the exact same way as the Standard shipping method. These options just guarantee you will have your order in 1 to 2 working days depending on the option you choose.
*The Standard and expedited shipping methods are typically shipped out vis UPS, or FedEx
- Lost or damaged packages
- Once an order has left the hands of RF Parts we are no longer responsible for the condition of the package once it is in transit.
- RF Parts is not responsible for delayed delivery times, or slow delivery service. The time estimate given in each method is just an estimate. There are many factors that can delay or slow down transit time that RF Parts has no control over.
- Please make notes of your tracking number that you will see in an email sent to you, or by logging into your account and checking your recent orders. If you have a lost or damaged package please contact the carrier that is delivering your package and file a claim according to the carriers specifications. If you are still having issues after you have contacted the shipping carrier, please contact RF Parts and we can help further your claim.
Tip: Choosing the standard shipping method will ensure if your package is lost or damaged that the claim will be handled a lot faster than if you choose the Saver shipping method. We use UPS and FedEx to ship most all the Standard Shipping methods, claims filed to these cariers are handled in a more urgent matter than claims filed to USPS.
