Shipping & Returns

SHIPPING

We ship most products within 1-4 business days. After that, items typically arrive within:

  • USA: 2-5 days (Extended time frame may occur for holiday and carrier issues) This is out of SterlingDove.Com's control

  • Canada: 5-20 days

  • UK, most of EU: 5-15 days

  • Australia, New Zealand: 10-30 days

  • Rest of the World: 5-20 days

  • Shipping times are working days not calendar days

Purchases after 12:00 PM ET Friday will be shipped by the following Monday, unless it is a holiday and then the items will ship on Tuesday. 

Once an item leaves our warehouse and is handed to the carrier, the shipping process is the responsibility of the carrier.

While we do have access to tracking systems which can provide information, once a package is in the carrier network, we are unable to fulfill requests such as redirecting packages, recalling packages, or expediting shipping due to circumstances outside of our control.

All orders are processed within 1 to 4 business days (excluding weekends and holidays) after receiving your order confirmation email. You will receive another notification when your order has shipped. 

Purchases after 12:00 PM ET Friday will be shipped by the following Monday, unless it is a holiday and then the items will ship on Tuesday. 

We will get your package to the post office within 1-4  business days (excluding holidays), however, due to supply chain delays, we are experiencing longer shipping times than normal. Please know the Postal Service is also experiencing delays. Although we will ship your order within 1-4 business days, we are not responsible for when it arrives. However, we will give you a tracking number so you know when it will arrive. We want to make sure your order gets to you too. We apologize for any inconvenience.

If you have chosen a different carrier, you will receive a tracking number so you will know when your items will arrive. 

SHIPPING CARRIERS

For USA Domestic orders, we use USPS First Class with tracking.

For Canada orders, we use UPS, running on an equivalent to First Class International service.

For Europe, UK, and International, we use Landmark Global, running on an equivalent to First Class International service.

Once the package has landed in the destination country, it is delivered by the domestic mail carrier in that country.

Postal Service Delays

Sometimes it happens that the package is stuck in transit longer than we had expected. If package was sent during COVID-19 outbreak many carriers and postal services around the world are overloaded with increased volume of packages. Online shopping saw significant uptick in number of people doing shopping online as well as increased frequency of purchases.
  • Wrong or incomplete address – This is the most common cause for undeliverable shipments. You should always double–check if your address has all the necessary details for it to be transported. Contact the courier company once you have realized that your order has some incomplete or wrong details written. The courier company will then make the changes.
  • International shipping – If a package is coming from overseas (other countries), it is safe to assume that delivery may take longer than usual.
  • Weather conditions or traffic – It is not so rare that during busy periods, such as holidays, or heavy snow, the parcel would take longer to arrive at its destination.
