When choosing UPS Air as a shipping option, depending on your location, UPS may require a signature in order to leave it at a residence. If a signature is required and no one is available to sign for the package, UPS will not leave it. Tackle Express would strongly suggest that if you choose UPS Air shipping as an option when someone is home to sign for the package or have it shipped to a business where someone is able to sign for it. Tackle Express will not be held responsible for reimbursing UPS Air shipping charges if no one is available for a signature release.
Note: All rod orders with additional items being shipped via UPS Air, may incur an increased shipping charge. The shipping charge shown when the order is submitted is subject to change. If your order needs to be shipped in two separate boxes you will be notified via e-mail. The shipping charge reflected on your order confirmation e-mail will be the correct shipping cost.

UPS Priority Overnight
When shipping UPS Priority Overnight to certain destinations, UPS does not guarantee delivery by 10:30am. Depending on the zip code and address location, some packages may not be delivered until 6pm. Unfortunately, UPS cannot provide us with zip codes where these varying delivery times apply. Please be advised that if you are in a remote destination and choose UPS Priority Overnight, the guaranteed arrival time will not apply but the next day delivery will. As a result, Tackle Express, will not be refunding for Priority Overnight deliveries made to rural areas where there is no delivery time can be guaranteed.

Back Ordered Items
After Tackle Express has sent your initial shipment of in-stock items, all outstanding back ordered items are shipped at no charge to you. If all items are out of stock when you submit your order, you are responsible for the initial shipping charge. If we receive a portion of the order we will ship those items at the original cost of shipping and the remaining back ordered items will ship at no cost to you. The method of shipping will depend on the best available option. Back ordered items will ship one of two ways,  First Class Mail or UPS Ground and is determined by Tackle Express.
