Shipping & Delivery
The Outfitters Shop at Zoar Outdoor works to have all orders shipped within 24 hours of when the order was placed. Orders must be placed before 12 noon EST to be shipped on the same business day. Orders placed on a holiday or weekend will be shipped the next business day. We ship all items, except kayaks, canoes and paddles via USPS Priority Mail, unless otherwise requested. Kayaks and canoes are shipped via LTL carrier (i.e. Roadway) and paddles are shipped UPS Ground. Transit times correlate to business days. In most cases USPS and UPS deliver within 1-5 business days, however orders to Hawaii and Alaska may require additional time and cost.
If your package needs to be expedited, the order must be placed prior to 12 noon EST to ship the same business day. We recommend that you call us toll free at (800) 532 7483 with your request for expedited shipping. Shipping prices on expedited orders are subject to change based on item size and shipment location. If shipping rates differ from what is originally estimated, we will contact you and update your online account prior to processing and shipping the order.
For orders being shipped internationally, special shipping costs and restrictions apply. International orders are shipped USPS Express Mail International, in most cases this is a 5 day service. If shipping rates differ from what is originally estimated, we will contact you and update your online account prior to processing and shipping the order.
