Shipping - USA
Question: What USA Shipping Methods Do You Have?
Answer: Over the years we have researched many shipping methods. We have chosen the absolute best for our customers! We only ship with USPS and FedEx.
We are located in Cincinnati, OH which is a great location for shipping in the United States. Most orders arrive between 1 and 3 business days (after leaving our warehouse) with only the west coast taking 4 business days with a few small exceptions. The map below is to give you a basic idea of normal Standard Ground transit times in the U.S.
Available USA Shipping Methods:
- 3 Day Priority and Priority Ground 1-3 Business Days: With other shipping companies, they may say 3 days delivery time, but that almost never counts Saturdays, so the delivery time is usually much longer. There is basic delivery confirmation and tracking on all Priority packages that you can track by logging into your Tiger Fitness account. If you want your package shipped to a P.O. Box you must pick Priority Shipping.
- Standard Ground 2-5 Business Days: Standard Ground packages will also have full tracking information just like Priority packages, it may just be a little slower. Standard Ground delivers to businesses Monday-Friday and to all non businesses on Tuesday-Saturday.
- Flat-Rate Ground 3-8 Business Days: Flat-Rate Ground packages will have full tracking information like all our other packages, it may just take a couple extra days to receive your order. Rates for this service are subject to change, but is usually around $8.99.
- Small Parcel Flat Rate 2-5 Business Days: All packages shipping with this service will have full tracking information like all other packages. This service specifically provides packages under 1lb a special cheaper rate. This service is good for anywhere in the continental U.S. The cost for this is subject to change, but is typically $3.49.
- Customer Pick-Up: This option is available for customers that live close enough to our warehouse to come pick their order up. It will always be free. Note, that not all items you are able to check out with may be available for pick-up right away. We will call you as soon as your entire order is ready for pick-up. If you are curious when it might be ready, please give us a call and we will let you know an approximate time you can pick the order up.
Question: What Are Your USA Shipping Rates?
- Priority Shipping 1 - 3 Business Days starting at $5.35! This shipment method only takes 1 - 3 business days and even includes Saturdays! The rates for Priority Shipping are based on the weight of the package and final destination. Depending on what is in your shopping basket, the rate will be different. To find out what the fee will be for your order, simply click ADD TO CART next to the products you want to put in your shopping cart. On that first shopping cart page it will show you the full shipping rates. We don't hide the rates on the last checkout page like other companies!
- Standard Ground 2 - 5 Business Days starting at $7.50! Standard Ground is the best option for heavy shipments, like large bottles of protein or orders with a lot of products. The rates for Standard Ground are based on the weight of the package and the final destination.
- Flat-Rate Ground 3-8 Business Days: This service is not always available, but when it is, it is typically around $8.99 for packages over $99 (before shipping charges), and under 20-25lbs. This service is only available for the Continental 48 United States.
- Small Parcel Flat Rate 2-5 Business Days: The cost for this is subject to change, but is typically $3.49.
Don't be fooled by other sites that LOOK like they have great prices or shipping fees, only to find out that their overall price is much higher than us! Sometimes a site will give you "free shipping" but then charge you a handling fee or charge you a higher price for the product. Other sites will give you a low price for the product, but then charge you an outrageous shipping or handling fee. We do not play games with our customers, you know the total cost on the 1st page!
Question: How Long Does USA Shipping Take/How Long is Your Order Processing Time?
Answer: We strive to ship your order out within 24 hours, usually much quicker. If you order before 3:00 p.m. EST, your order will most likely ship the SAME day! Our customers are constantly shocked by how fast we ship orders out. We understand that you want your products as fast as humanly possible. If your order has an item on back order and is placed before 3:00 p.m. EST your order will ship out the next business day. If your order is placed after 3:00 p.m. EST and has one or more back ordered items your order will be processed on the following business day. It is a rare occasion when an order doesn't ship out within 1-2 business days, but we will contact you to let you know why your order hasn't shipped if there is a delay or if some action is required on your part. Please note that on, or around Holidays, processing times will be slowed down. Please also allow extra time over the weekend. You will get an e-mail from us when your order ships and it will include your shipping info along with your tracking number(s).
Question: Do You Ship On Saturdays Too?
Answer: Yes! The USPS is the only service that picks up on Saturdays. Orders shipping with the USPS, placed before 12 noon EST, that have every item in stock will ship out on Saturday. We will pack up other orders that are shipping with the USPS and FedEx on Saturdays and Sundays, but they will not be picked up until Monday.
Question: Will I Be Notified When My Package Ships?
Answer: Yes! We will send you an e-mail as soon as your order ships. It will tell you where your products shipped from and it will give you other important information along with your tracking numbers. If your order can not ship for some reason, you will be notified within 1 business day.
Question: Will I Get A Tracking Number?
Answer: Yes! You will get a tracking number for all orders on our site. You will get an email with the tracking information as soon as the label for your package is printed. If you lose your shipping e-mail, you can still track your order by logging into our site and you can review your shipment that way. If for some reason your order has not arrived in the time it was scheduled, you can e-mail us at email@example.com or phone at 1-877-397-3801 for info, and we can track it from here.
Question: Do You Ship To PO Boxes?
Answer: Yes, we can ship to PO boxes with no problem! You must choose the Priority Shipping option though.
Be sure that your PO box address is on file with your credit card company if you pay by credit card, in order to make sure there are no delays in shipping.
Question: Do You Ship To APO/FPO Military Addresses?
Answer: Yes, we do ship to APO/FPO military addresses with no problem! We have shipped thousands of orders to military addresses and many more every day. The shipping fees are the same as if you are shipping to the USA... not higher!
- Military Priority Shipping 1 - 5 Business Days starting at $5.35!
This shipment method only takes 1 - 5 business days to get to the Military Installation that will be forwarding the products to you. From there the transit time depends on where you are stationed and the speed at which the installation expedites it! The rates for Priority Shipping are based on the weight of
the package and final destination. Depending on what is in your shopping
basket, the rate will be different. To find out what the fee will be
for your order, simply click ADD TO CART next to the products you want
to put in your shopping cart. On that first shopping cart page it will
show you the full shipping rates. We don't hide the rates on the last
checkout page like other companies!
How To Ship To Your APO/FPO Address
- First of all, be sure to choose the USPS Priority Mail shipping option. You do not need to choose the more expensive international options, no matter where you are!
- You do not need to enter in the actual city, state or country of where you are located. Enter APO or FPO for the city and AP or AE for the state, along with the United States as the country no matter where you're located.
- Be sure to submit your actual credit card billing address in the "billing address" section if the APO/FPO address is not on file with your credit card company. The APO/FPO address should go into the "shipping address" section.
You will be surprised at how fast your shipment arrives! Of course, it may take longer than 2 - 3 days if you are outside of the country, but it will still be there very quickly.
Question: When Will My Order Ship?
Answer: Our number one goal is to make sure you receive your package in as little time as possible! To do this, we make sure to ship your order out SUPER quick. We will e-mail you a shipping confirmation when your order ships.
- If everything is in stock and you order before 3:00 p.m. EST Time, we will process your order and ship it THE SAME DAY! If you order after this time, your order will be processed and shipped on the next business day.
- If one or more items on your order are on backorder, we will ship your order the day that your items come in. If we do have a backorder, it is usually for only 1-2 business days at the most.
- If a product you order is on pre-order your entire order will not ship until the pre-order product arrives. If you would like your other products shipped before the pre-order product you can either place separate orders, or you can contact customer service for more information about getting your other products shipped separately from the pre-order product.
Question: If Something Is Backordered, Do You Partial Ship For No Extra Charge?
Answer: In almost all cases, YES! Our goal has always been to get your order to you as fast as humanly possible. We pride ourselves on having almost everything in stock all the time, but some things are out of our control and cause items to be backordered. If you have one or more items that are on backorder for more than 1-2 business days we will ship the in-stock items so you will have part of your order as soon as possible. When the backordered item(s) comes in, we will ship it out that same day. We do this at NO extra charge to you!
Most companies will try to save money and hold your order until it can ship complete. We know that even though you won't be happy that one item is out of stock, it is MUCH better to at least get the rest of the order on time!
Question: What Is A Dropship?
Answer: A dropship is a product ordered that ships directly from the original manufacturer, rather than from our warehouse. These items ordered are automatically forwarded to the manufacturer once your order is processed through our site. The dropships, being a mere .1% of the items we sell, are still as important as the items sent directly from our warehouse, and are assessed immediately to be shipped through them. All dropshipped items will have a Fedex Tracking number that you will be able to track through our site as well.
Question: My Tracking Information Shows my Package was Delivered but I did not Receive it, What do I do?
Answer: Notify the TF Support Team immediately. We will open an investigation with the shipping service that was used to send your package. We will reship out your order as soon as we can. We will only reship out one order per customer unless: the package is found and returned to us, or if we are reimbursed for the missing package. Note: If you have already had one package reshipped out to you and you have a second package that shows up as delivered but you did not receive it, please still contact us because if we can retrieve the lost package or be reimbursed we will be able to reship your order to you. This policy does not apply to International orders. International customers please contact customer service about what can be done for you. Thanks for choosing Tigerfitness.com!
These products are generally shipped from the manufacturer within 1 to 2 days of receiving the order and can take 2 to 6 business days for delivery, if not sooner. We will email the shipping status or the tracking information to you on all of these orders..
