CONTINENTAL USA ORDERS:
ALL orders are shipped via USPS, and if your order contains Calcium Carbide, the package must be sent as HAZMAT, and must comply with shipping rules for HAZMAT per CFR title 49 172.101.
ALL HAZMAT packages must be sent either FIRST CLASS surface only, or if over 13 ounces, must be sent PARCEL SELECT surface only. Please do not ask for your order to be shipped any other way, if your order contains Calcium Carbide, as we cannot legally do that.
HAZMAT rules dictate that Calcium Carbide cannot be shipped in containers larger than 1 pound, so please do not ask for larger sizes.
Because HAZMAT packages are handled differently by USPS, your order will probably take about one week, BUT about 20% of our shipments take 2-3 weeks or longer to arrive.
After payment is complete with your order, we will send you a confirmation email..
Another email will be sent to you when your item is processed for shipping. The USPS tracking info will be provided in this email. Please be aware that tracking does not work correctly on some shipments, it will only show acceptance, intiial sort facility, and when it is delivered. Ignore the USPS estimated delivery time, it is probably wrong.
ALL calcium Carbide orders will be shipped same business day or next business day at the latest
BIG BANG cannon orders will be handled same day or next day as well, but most BIG BANG orders ship directly from the factory in Bethlehem, PA.
NO ORDERS ACCEPTED FOR OTHER COUNTRIES AT THIS TIME INCLUDING CANADA!
