Shipping Info

GardenFun™ is proud of it's fast, reliable, low cost shipping!

Standard Ground Shipping Rates are generated based on the order size and the zip code of delivery. Typically, if you can ship to a commercial address you can often save a few dollars on shipping. Shipping rates outside of the 48 contiguous states and internationally are estimated with surcharges, and may not be applicable to certain very heavy or oversized items.

Delivery Method
We mostly use UPS and FedEx as our standard method of shipment to all areas within the Continental U.S. so we can insure your packages, and provide safe and accurate tracking. Please note that UPS and FedEx do not deliver to PO Boxes. If you do not have a physical address, your order will be shipped via United States Postal Service (USPS). All orders sent to AK, HI, PR, Guam, VI, APO & Canada will also be sent via USPS unless otherwise requested by email or phone.

Non-US Mainland Orders
Orders from Alaska, Hawaii, Guam, Virgin Islands, APO address, Puerto Rico and Canada are normally shipped via USPS to help reduce broker fees on your end unless otherwise requested. Shipping costs shown on the website to these locations are shipping estimates only and can vary greatly depending on the size and weight of the order. If the actual shipping charges exceed the estimate, you may be contacted to approve the actual costs before shipping. All customers will be fully responsible for all customs, tariffs, duties and brokerage charges if applicable and we will not be responsible for lost or broken shipments.

International Shipping
Yes we can ship most items anywhere in the world, however, shipping internationally can be very expensive depending on the size and weight of the items, and we will not be responsible for lost or broken shipments. Some items are too large and exceed USPS shipping limitations. Once orders get delivered to Customs for export, we will have little tracking control. That being said, we send many international shipments with very little trouble, almost daily. If you are interested, please send us the items of interest, the quantity, and your COMPLETE SHIPPING ADDRESS so we can provide you an accurate shipping quote. We will send you an invoice that can be paid with a Paypal account, or any credit card. Your items will ship with USPS and typically arrive within 7-14 business days. All customers will be fully responsible for all customs, tariffs, duties and brokerage charges if applicable. You can use this link to request a quote: International Inquiry.

When will my order ship?
We are very excited to get your items to you as fast as we can! We stock products in multiple warehouses across the country. Some warehouses are a bit faster than others, but on average most orders ship within 24 hours and should arrive at your door and in your hands within 2-6 business days depending on your location. If an item is on back-order and will not ship out within 48 hours, we will contact you to let you know.

When will my items arrive? I need more details!
It mostly depends on when you place your order, and where you are located. Products in our CA warehouse usually ship the same day if the order is placed by 6pm EST. Other orders shipping from MO, MS, TN, MI, GA, or CT need to be placed by 11am EST to possibly ship the same day.

Please call us if you are concerned about a specific item arriving by a specific date for an event, a special occasion like a birthday, or if leaving leaving town, etc. We can often get you an expedited shipping quote if necessary, and can also hold some orders to ship at a later date if necessary.

You can also specify that you need an item by a specific date in the comment section of your online order. In case we need to contact you, please leave us a good working phone number.

If you request expedited air shipping, we will ship your order via the LEAST EXPENSIVE method based upon your request to get your package to you by your deadline. If the additional shipping costs exceed $20, you will be contacted for approval. If you are stressed about getting an order by a certain time, we will be taking on your stress as well to make it happen. Please help us by providing any additional contact phone numbers we might need in the Comments box of your order, so we can reach you if we have any questions or problems, thanks!

Fun Shipping Alternatives - If you prefer to save the expedited shipping dollars, and it simply isn't critical that the gifts arrive by a certain holiday or birthday, two fun ideas include simply giving a card with a picture of the item printed from our website, or, giving them a mystery tracking number for some extra fun suspense. You can also always purchase them a Gift Certificate too which is delivered via email instantly after purchase.

If you have additional questions or needs, please feel free to contact us. Thanks!
