Majors Books only ships via UPS. Most items are normally shipped the same business day for orders placed before 2PM CST, paid with credit card and without complications. Payment complications include: different shipping and billing addresses, billing information inconsistent with what's on the credit card record, and orders that can't be verified by phone. Orders placed during non-business hours such as evenings, weekends, and holidays are normally processed and shipped on the next business day.
The most inexpensive way to ship is by UPS Ground. UPS shipping charges are calculated in real time with UPS's web site, using actual weight of items, shipping distance from Dallas, Texas, and the published UPS rates. Regular UPS delivery hours are Monday-Friday, 7-5. We do not guarantee the arrival date of the packages.
All delivery dates are based on Business days. If a Saturday delivery is required, please call the bookstore at 1-800-435-3378 to make arrangements as a Saturday delivery will involve additional costs.
FREE SHIPPING: if you qualify for free shipping your order will be sent to you via UPS Ground.
Texas residents: It usually takes only one business day (excluding the Weekends) for UPS to deliver UPS Ground packages to most Texas locations from Dallas, with the exception of the far South Texas and West Texas area where it may take two days. Therefore, UPS Ground is sufficient for most Texas locations and it is not necessary to select any of the express shipping options. UPS does not guarantee delivery date by any shipping method to residential addresses.
Nevertheless, we have found that the one-day delivery by UPS Ground shipping was quite reliable to most Texas locations.
