Saturday delivery: We do not process orders and our carriers do not deliver on Saturdays. Please only count business days when determining shipping.
PO Boxes: Please enter a physical address for your ship to address. UPS does not deliver to P.O. boxes and we will have to cancel your order if we are unable to contact you.
Oversize & Items Requiring Special Handling: Occasionally we will need to contact you for authorization for additional shipping costs for very heavy items, oversized package, or locations where our carriers charge us more. Please contact us if you have any questions.
Order Cutoff Time: Order cutoff time for expedited shipping is 2PM Eastern Time. Please calculate your delivery date only using business days. At this time we do not offer Saturday delivery rates. If you have any questions please call us at 1-800-455-7280.
Undeliverable Packages: Occasionally packages are returned to us as undeliverable. If your order is returned to us because the package is undeliverable as addressed, partyexpress.com will process the order as a return and issue a refund for the item only. See our return policy for more information.
Failed Delivery Attempts: Most of our carriers make three attempts to deliver a package. After three delivery attempts, the package will be returned to us.
Signature Delivery: Signature may be required for delivery if you will not be at the shipping address to accept delivery of your product, consider shipping the item to an address where someone you trust will be available to sign for your package. Please note that we are not able to adjust the shipping address once a package has left our warehouse. Title and risk of loss to all products will pass to you on delivery.
