Important Shipping Notice:
As of August 1, 2016, we no longer offer to use UPS for expedited shipping. The last 6 expedited UPS shipments have been disastrous. Never mind the guaranteed delivery dates that were disregarded, or the destroyed, missing, or empty-on-arrival packages. The entire hassle is too much, even if some of the cost is eventually recovered. If you need something delivered yesterday, and it's not our fault, please don't even ask.
Planning ahead will get the job done every time. Using expedited shipping to make up for the lack of planning cannot make an unhappy customer into a happy one, especially not if UPS continues to thoroughly disappoint.
For smaller amounts of material (up to 8 to 10 pounds/ under $30), we can still use Priority Mail Express Flat Rate Envelopes for expedited shipping. Delivery is either one or two day, depending on the destination. This option remains on the shipping methods menu.
BlacksmithBolt.com is the supplier of choice for specialty
fasteners in the Blacksmithing, Metalworking and Woodworking communities, Restoration
