Derby Monkey Shipping Policy


Free Shipping Offer

All orders with a subtotal of $75.00 or more will be shipped via USPS Priority Mail with Delivery Confirmation at no charge. This offer is valid for US Zip Codes only.

You will also have the option to select alternative shipping methods such as UPS Ground, 3 Day Select, 2nd Day Air or Next Day Air. 

Shipping Methods

USPS Priority Mail

All orders are usually shipped the same day of order via USPS Priority Mail with Delivery Confirmation unless otherwise specified during checkout. Priority Mail is less expensive and usually takes 2 to 4 business days for delivery.  Priority Mail is very reliable however, tracking is limited.  USPS does not offer a guaranteed delivery time. Even though delays are very rare... USPS Priority mail can sometimes take up to two weeks for delivery.

All orders placed Friday after 1:00PM CST will ship on the following Monday.

UPS Ground

UPS Ground is more expensive and takes from 1 to 5 days for delivery. For better tracking UPS Ground is a good choice. 

UPS 3 Day, 2 Day or Next Day Delivery

When an order is needed quickly and with a guaranteed delivery, choose UPS 3 Day, 2nd Day or Next Day Air.  Express orders must be placed no later than 1:00PM CST to be garanteed to ship the same day.

Important UPS Shipping Notes:

  • Packages over $150 in value will require a signature upon delivery, so you may want to have the package delivered to your place of work (if appropriate).
  • If your order is placed after 1:00PM CST your package will ship the following business day.
  • If you choose UPS Next Day Air and the package is shipping on Friday, the package will be delivered on Monday, the next business day. UPS does offer a Saturday delivery service to most US zip codes. The fee for this service is the Next Day Air fee, plus $20. If you want Saturday delivery, you must request this service by sending us an email, or calling customer service by 1PM CST on the day of shipment.
  • If you choose UPS 2nd Day Air and the package is shipping on Thursday, the package will be delivered on Monday. If you need the order sooner, please select Next Day Air as the shipping method.
