Shipping Rates and Delivery Time

$8.95 standard shipping within the Contiguous US, and most orders over $100 ship free!

We will continue to process orders within 1 to 2 business days, but you should expect shipping to take longer than usual, even for the faster options.

Orders ship from New Salem, Massachusetts. Our standard method of shipping in the Continental US is by USPS Parcel Post, for a charge of $8.95. Orders over $100 generally ship free within the Continental US, via the carrier of our choosing: if you have a deadline within 6 business days, you should choose an upgraded service.

Should you require faster delivery, Fast shipping by Priority Mail or UPS Ground (up to 6 business days) is available at $12.50; we determine the carrier by the dimensions and weight of the package. Please let us know if you have a deadline and we will let you know the best service to choose.

These selections may be selected at checkout, and insurance may be added at that time as well. Orders to Alaska, Hawaii and APO boxes are usually shipped via Priority Mail and are not included in the flat rate for the Continental US.  The Wooden Wagon reserves the right to ship packages of a certain size or weight via UPS or other, similar carriers.
