We offer Saver Shipping as an economical way to receive your order.

- Many orders will ship using services from UPS and FedEx that incorporate delivery by the US Postal Service.
- Primary shipping is handled by UPS or FedEx. They bring your order to a Postal Service location near you and the US Postal Service brings it to you.
Orders may also be shipped with UPS and FedEx Ground Services or USPS First Class or Priority Mail, at our discretion.

Some large/heavy orders will ship via truck. The appropriate arrangements will be made for delivery.

Our goal is to get your order to you in a way that is both reliable and cost-effective.

United Parcel Service (UPS)

 

Q. Is UPS service available for my address?
A. UPS service is available to physical addresses worldwide. Include a complete and accurate address when you order. Mistakes or omissions can result in late deliveries and additional charges from UPS.
During Checkout: To quote shipping charges, www.sausagemaker.com makes an inquiry of www.ups.com for the weight (and box dimensions) of the items in your order and the zip code you entered. If UPS does not recognize your ZIP code, UPS services aren't available for your order. Make sure you use the correct ZIP code for your physical address so UPS rates can be quoted for you.

 

Q. What happens if there is a problem during shipping? Is my order insured?
A. All packages are insured at our expense. This expense is not included in the shipping rates quoted by the Sausage Maker web site.

 

Q: Can UPS deliver to my PO Box?
A: UPS cannot deliver to PO Box addresses including APO/FPO (military) addresses. UPS can deliver to "Rural Route Box" (RR, RD, HC) addresses as these identify the actual receiver's location (their physical address). Note: Many of these addresses have been updated with street number and name addresses. Please use this newer address if available.

 

Q: Can I find out when my (UPS) order will be delivered?
A: Packages shipped with UPS are trackable from pickup through delivery. If you provided an e-mail address when you placed your order, you will receive the tracking number(s) for your order via e-mail. If you don't receive this message, please call us at (716)824-5814. We'll track your order for you.

 

Q: What do I do if a package arrives damaged?
A: If a package arrives damaged, check for missing or damaged contents.

You can also contact us via e-mail to customerservice@sausagemaker.com.

A: Parcel Post packages to the US may take 1 to 2 weeks to be delivered regardless of the distance they need to travel.

Q: It's been a long time. Where is my order?
A: For any USPS shipment (U.S. or International), if your order has not been received within 30 days, contact The Sausage Maker at (716)824-5814 or via e-mail to customerservice@sausagemaker.com. We'll follow up with the USPS and if appropriate, will reship your order at our expense.
