SHIPPING & HANDLING – TRACKING:
STANDARD SHIPPING – CONTINENTAL UNITED STATES
The Tape Depot reserves the right to ship packages via the Postal Class or Carrier deemed necessary (USPS or UPS). Due to the fact that each parcel shipped is different in size and weight, our dedicated fulfillment team routes your package to you in the quickest way determined.
Our warehouse location is in South Florida, US. Therefore, if you are ordering a package in New York you will receive it in 3 – 8 Days depending on the item. If you are in Los Angeles, California you should get your parcels in 5 – 10 days of ordering. We like to be upfront with this so our users can time orders correctly, and we can convert/slit items necessary.
Sometimes orders need to be converted. This means we need to cut the specific roll of tape for our customers. These rolls are slit in the order received.
Free Shipping does not extend to Alaska, Hawaii, Puerto Rico or International Addresses.
Fees to Alaska, Hawaii, Puerto Rico, Guam, US Virgin Islands:
Orders to these destinations are reviewed upon reception. Sometimes there are no additional fees to ship to Alaska, Hawaii, Puerto Rico, Guam or the US Virgin Islands. Our fulfillment team will review your order and contact you if any additional postage is necessary.
