Shipping for Booksellers
All of our customers pay shipping. UPS ground delivery is used most frequently by our customers, but alternative and expedited shipping methods are available upon request.
Within the U.S., the default shipping method is UPS ground. The shipping charge is based on the weight of the parcel and the delivery location. If your business has an account with UPS and you would prefer UPS Consignee or UPS Collect billing, please specify.
Outside the U.S., please inquire with McFarland for current rates for shipping directly to your area. Some international customers may prefer to use a freight forwarding agent. In those instances, McFarland will ship to the U.S. office of your freight forwarder (ordinarily by UPS ground). Consult our guidelines for international customers for further information about ordering via our agents for your territory.
