Shipping & Delivery

Shipping

American Oak Barrel.com accepts orders 24/7/365. The shipping rates for many items we sell are weight-based. The weight of any such item can be found on its detail page. To reflect the policies of the shipping companies we use, all weights will be rounded up to the next full pound.

Orders are processed in the order they are received and expedited shipping orders, such as Priority and Express shipping, are elevated in priority to meet the delivery deadline. All orders are shipped from our location in Glen Burnie, Maryland 21060 via the carriers offered at checkout (UPS & USPS). American Oak Barrel reserves the right to ship your order via the carrier or shipping method of our choice. We would change the shipment method if we deem it necessary to fulfill your order in a more efficient and expeditious manner.

Orders placed are usually processed and shipped within 2~3 business days from the time the order is placed. Priority and Express orders placed before 1:00 PM EST will be processed and shipped out the same business day. Priority and Express orders placed after 1:00 PM EST will be processed and shipped out the next business day. The day an order ships does not count as a day in transit. Orders placed from Friday to Sunday will be processed the following Monday and shipped within 2~3 days. 

**Due to the high volume of orders during holiday season you may experience extended processing time up to 4 business days.**
