Carrier Shipment & Delivery Time
Umbrellas.com is located in New York, USA and delivery times will vary based on carrier, shipping method selected, destination and package. If you require a guaranteed delivery method please be sure to select either UPS 3 Day or UPS Next Day, all other methods are not guaranteed by the carrier.
The carrier (UPS, USPS, etc) and their drivers are responsible for the packages, they may at their discretion decide not to leave a package in an area they feel is not secure (outside an apartment door). If this happens, the driver will come back at the earliest opportunity, usually the next day, and attempt delivery again. In these situations, the package will not be delivered without signature even if the package has been shipped using an guaranteed or expedited shipping method.
If you request guaranteed or expedited shipping, please make sure someone is available to receive the package. Umbrellas.com is not responsible for shipment delays or difficulties due to carrier decision not to leave a package. In the event we can not get your item delivered to you using the selected carrier we may opt to substitute the carrier in order to expedite delivery.
