Shipping Questions

This section is intended to answer any shipping questions you may have.

Shipping Timelines


We give the machine shop 4 business days to handle business.  This does not include Saturday or Sunday.

We allow them this time so that they can order metal, fabricate products, pack and ship and simply get products to the postal service.

 

PLEASE NOTE: Coolers are not built until order.  Please allow for 2 weeks to complete the cooler and for shipping.

 


We use USPS (The United States Postal Service).

We have priced their service up against UPS, FEDEX, and DHL and have found them less expensive in most cases.

From an Administrative standpoint, USPS is much less of a hassle, that trying to work with the ever changing alternate services

 

Contact us at customerservice@rkdrums.com  and we will see what we can arrange.  We're very keen on having our customers thrilled with what we offer.  Alternately if you have a shipping account, we can provide you with the shipping dimensions and weights and you can send us a label.

Tracking numbers are sent via email within a day or so of your order.  Due to the fact that they have links in the emails, check your spam folder just in case in your email.

During the first 2-4 business days, your tracking numbers may not show any progress while we prepare your order.  These tracking numbers are produced upon order, but do not show movement until the item actually ships.  Please allow for up to 4 business days to see movement.
