How much do you charge for shipping and how long does Ground Shipping take?

Charges: When you fill out our online order form, our system automatically calculates and displays estimated shipping charges unless otherwise stated in the product description. We do not "pad" our shipping charges or add "handling charges". To keep our prices as low as possible, we must pass the cost of shipping to the customer. You will be charged only what it costs AhoyCaptain to get your order to you.

Shipping: processes each order as soon as it is received. Orders received over the weekend are processed the next business day. We generally ship FedEx Ground, it can take up to 10 business days to ship coast to coast. We do not have control of the shipping time once the product leaves the warehouse. Please phone or email us if you have an urgent request and we will do our best to accommodate you. 

Special Shipping: Certain products are considered hazardous materials (some paints and thinners, flares, compressed gases, etc.) and as such will carry a HazMat surcharge which varies by product and manufacturer. Some products can not be shipped by air and may be unavailable outside of mainland U.S. Please contact us if you have further questions about these products.

What is your Return policy?

Within 30 days of receipt of your order (unless indicated otherwise in the product description), you may return any product except closeout items or special order items, provided the item is "New" condition. A 15% restocking fee will be added. We will refund shipping costs only if the return is a result of our error.
See our return policy for more specific information.
