C.O.D. shipping is not available. Allow 3–5 business days for shipping time. Allow 3–6 weeks for deliveries to Hawaii, Alaska, APO, FPO and USA territories. Other foreign orders are not accepted.

Carriers

Most orders are shipped UPS ground, and larger orders are shipped via commercial truck lines. Orders to Alaska or Hawaii are shipped the most economical way. Faster delivery service (e.g., next day) may be requested for an additional charge. We require a street address; deliveries cannot be made to a P.O. box. Carriers give priority service to business addresses, so you may want your order shipped to your workplace. Keep in mind most carriers will deliver to the door only and not to a preferred place of storage. Truck drivers, subject to regulations, are not required to give assistance unloading. Some companies may offer unloading services, but you are responsible for any costs incurred for extra services.

Inspect Your Order

ALWAYS inspect ALL cartons carefully upon delivery. Shipments are insured with the carrier, who is responsible for any damage (not Morris Publishing®). If a claim is necessary, we will help in any way we can. Report any visible damage to the carrier and note on the delivery receipt before signing. You MUST SAVE the damaged books and cartons in which they were delivered for possible inspection. Concealed damage must be reported to the carrier within 7 days of delivery. Defective books not due to shipping must be reported to Morris Publishing within 90 days of the ship date.
