Oversized National (50 States) Standard Shipping
All oversized items are noted on our site as "Oversized" in the item's detail screen, with the shipping cost displayed, prior to adding to cart. Oversized shipping charges are calculated to the lowest fee possible and are based on the approximate size/weight of each item.
National (50 States) 2nd Day Air and Next Day Air Shipping Options
Advantage Hobby uses UPS for all non ground shipping options. When selecting a faster shipping option, you will be charged a flat shipping rate as follows:
3 Day Select UPS Service: $29.99
2nd Day UPS Service: $39.99
Next Day UPS Service: $59.99
3 Day Select, 2nd Day, and Next Day service does not include Saturday delivery. Also, we cannot guarentee that UPS provides these services to your area from Champaign, IL.
These flat rate charges do not include "Oversized" items. Additional fees for oversized items will be calculated and billed at the actual shipping costs at time of shipment.
Please note that in some cases, an order with a large item (ARF kit, etc) will be charged by UPS as "dimensional" size (oversized) rather than at actual weight. For example, a medium sized ARF airplane or Heli kit may only weigh 15 lbs, but the dimensional weight by UPS standards might calculate to a billable weight of 30lbs. A complete radio system might have an actual weight of 8lbs, but a dimensional shipping weight of 15lbs.
Please be assured that Advantage Hobby will charge only the actual shipping costs as billed by UPS for these oversized shipments.
